2nd time staying here and was just as good as a few years ago. Service friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and what you would expect from a Premier Inn. Pub next door is nice and good for a quick bite to eat or meeting place with friends. Recommend if in Colchester

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as we went to a wedding nearby. We had a family room which had a double bed and two single beds. It was a good size room and the beds were really comfortable. We didn't spend much time in the room as our relatives lived locally but the room was clean, had... More

They advertise a guarrenteed good night's sleep and that's exactly what we got at the Premier Inn, Cowdray Avenue, Colchester. We have stayed there before when visiting family and friends and have found it to be very convenient for the town centre, shopping and good access to other tourist attractions (Colchester Zoo, the Castle etc). The staff are always very... More

Good comfortable and clean room, all normal Premier services, polite and welcoming staff on reception. A little noise from the road but not troublesome with windows closed, possibly not so quiet in summer with window open though!

A good, clean hotel. Friendly staff. Shame there is no link between the hotel and the restaurant, especially when it's freezing outside!! Good food in the restaurant - cooked fresh and tasty. Would defo recommend!

Rubbish view of roof but didn't come for the view so this didn't affect me. Easy to park. Very welcoming at Reception and a very comfortable stay with great facilities. The bed is so comfortable that I have already looked into buying one. Blackout curtains a bonus - I didn't wake up until 10am but that's ok because breakfast is... More

Another Christmas trip to our son and his family, who live just a five minute walk away, how good is that ?? As usual our stay was brilliant. The reception staff are aware of our health issues so a ground floor room was available even though we booked on line. The room was brilliant, the bed comfortable, the bathroom spotless.... More

Despite the weather the hotel lived up to expectation. Usual good standard of service expected from a Premier Inn. Highlight for me was the double bed which was very comfortable. Pub next door was used for Breakfast which was fine. Hotel well placed to walk in to the town centre. Very friendly and helpful receptionist. Will use again when next... More

We went to Colchester together with my wife in order to meet our daughter studying there. Usually I do not expect any special experience from UK hotels charging below 200 pounds per night but this time I was very positively surprised. This hotel is very well managed, very clean and welcoming, nicely furnished. The hotel manager went an extra mile... More

Customer service was a disgrace felt like scum of the earth, never felt so embarrassed in all my life I yes I had to phone the operations manager to sort my check in problem out, the service was that bad he authorised the refund after a 11pm phone call without question!!!! Stay away from this place it's a disgrace
