This hotel offers what you would expect from a decent budget hotel. The location is good and the rooms are clean and of an acceptable standard. Staff is very friendly and helpful. I would certainly stay again.

CCTV covered car park, but not far from the railway station. Short walk to town. castle park and castle. Classic Premier Inn, comfortable quiet etc. Food in the old Albert pub next door, now Beefeater lived up to expectation. Would we use this again when visiting Colchester? YES

I love premier inns because you know exactly what you're getting and you don't have to worry about quality. So I wasn't suprised by Colchester Central which gave us a friendly welcome, a large family room with 2 kids beds (you couldn't really tell one was a converted sofa bed) and a bathroom with a bath (autistic son hates showers)....

Easy to find, nice girl in the reception. Good family room with enough space for the four of us. My son think that they are good with free wifi, but think that they are cheap who charge extra if you will be sure of the speed of the service.

Stayed recently as a family, 2 adults and 2 children, and have no complaints whatsoever. Great location, very welcoming, helpful staff, very clean room with nice facilities, comfy beds and nice and quiet too. Just for the record, we had breakfast 2 mornings in a row and had no problem either time, seated and served very quickly. Would certainly recommend... More

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.
