Efficient, cean, friendly and what I have come to expect from a premier inn. The only downfall - and this is unique to Colchester - no available taxis between 8-9am as they are "all out on school runs"?? How crazy is this? Choices available? Bus or walk! I was late for my meeting!

Room and service were very good as per normal with the girl on reception being particularly helpful. Must admit Premier Inn always seem to be pretty consistent in the quality and standard of their rooms and also the staff.

Stayed for one night in Colchester. Friendly and helpful night and morning staff. Quick check-in. Room was fantastic, cleaning to a high standard, noise volume from within and outside of the hotel was minimal. my only two issues where the price.. and the extremely hard bed! thankful it was only one night!! But overall a quiet and trouble free evening,... More

Had a lovely stay over Valentine's weekend, really spacious and clean rooms and friendly staff as well as it being quiet so no interuptions while sleeping. Loved the easy access to Beafeater restaurant next door (which I recommend as the food and service was fab), was great value for money and we plan to return in future :)

Another enjoyable stay at Premier Inn. This one is smaller than most and the cooked part of breakfast is ordered not self-serve. The location is a 10 minute walk from Colchester centre and has car-parking - so perfect. What added to this stay was the way they dealt with a problem. The TV froze on the first night and couldn't... More

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!
