I must admit, I didn't expect much from a chain hotel. But Premier Inn, Colchester, really surprised me. The reception staff were welcoming, friendly, and helpful, and made you feel like you were right at home. The room was comfortable, with air-conditioning, a shower, TV, and wifi, and the bed... wow! You just sank right into it. Supper and breakfast... More

The rooms were clean, comfortable and good welcome at reception. We also liked the TV where you could plug in your iPhone and see your photos Unfortunately the service at breakfast on both mornings was poor. On the first morning we waited for a long time by the 'to be seated' sign only to discover breakfast was being served round... More

This is a very clean and comfortable hotel. I have back problems and I managed to have a comfortable sleep. In comparison to other hotels in Colchester, this is quite spacious, clean and with high ceilings.

As always with Premier Inn, the room was clean and comfortable. We had a twin room, which was perfect to form a base for our stay. Despite being on a main road there was no noise from outside. Nor did we hear any of the other guests. The connected beefeater was the location for breakfast, which was great value for... More

Located near Colchester North train station, the Hotel is adjacent to the Albert Inn - a beefeater restaurant, where all meals are served. It is well served by bus from Colchester Town, with a bus stop on the roundabout outside. The Staff were VERY helpful and friendly, and the Hotel was clean and functional to the premier standard. Mature couple.

This is a standard Premier Inn which has obviously been re decorated. The room was very clean and the shower nice and powerful plus there was ample parking. The reason for writing this review is to let the management know what great staff they are employing at this establishment. The recetionists went out of their way to be welcoming and... More

This is a great small hotel at the bottom of Colchester's North Hill; very close to the main railway station and only a brisk twenty minute walk (up hill) to the Hight Street and the main shopping/eating areas of Colchester. Very friendly reception staff and a very clean room with everything you need for a short/medium stay.

Booked the family room. Myself, Wife and 2 kids. Being used to USA hotels, the room did seem small but it worked great. The hotel obviously used to be an old pub (pub now the beefeater), it was clean and the staff very helpful and friendly. Paid for the breakfast (kids 15 and under are free). Great value for money,...

Nothing wrong with hotel - usual Premier Inn on a very busy road (they do make this clear) but windows are very old and very poorly fitting so even though they have double-glazing they do not exclude noise well enough. They need refit as a priority - until then they need at least secondary glazing.
