Stayed for two nights on business. As usual with a Premier Inn, the room was perfectly fine, clean and comfortable. Lots of parking and right next door to pub/Beafeater. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. The only slight negative is that it isn't as well sound proofed as some other hotels, and as it's on a busy road there... More

A small but typical Premier Inn by the side of a busy road junction. A ten/fifteen minute uphill walk into town and five minutes from the excellent Victoria pub. I've never known such friendly staff on the front desk of a Premier Inn!

We had 2 nights at the hotel. It is very convenient for the town centre being approximately 30 minutes walk or there are plenty of buses. The reception area is very 'crowded' with an exit straight into the car parking area. As usual the rooms and Wifi were good. Car parking was plentiful. We had breakfast at the Beefeater next...

The staff made our stay; they were very friendly and welcoming. The room was very comfortable and clean. I was concerned about the noise from traffic as it's on a main road, but I have to say that our night was completely undisturbed.

Staff couldn't be more helpful or friendly here. Rooms, your usual premier inn, nice comfy beds etc only slight gripe would be the rooms can be quite noisy on the front near the road, not overly so that you can't sleep, just something to be aware of. Easy to get to, a ten minute ish walk in to town, or... More

Lovely staff at the premier inn itself very welcoming and accommodating (funny though as we arrived at 13.57 & they told us we had to wait 3 minutes to check in) room was very clean. However Staff next door at the beefeater restaurant were very rude and hard to find. Took us 45 mins to get our bill as you... More

Stayed over for 2 nights with my partner and our 4 yr old daughter. Room was excellent and the extra bed was top quality. Very quiet at night considering the hotel is on a busy road. Staff were excellent. Absolutely clean all over, would definitely stay again. Maybe the only downside is rooms don't have mini fridges to keep the... More

Booked in for 1 night as this was pretty much the closest we could get to Colchester General Hospital. Hotel is on a very busy and noisy road and windows do not block out that noise. In addition we were kept awake until 1:30am by someone having an argument in the car park downstairs and by a ridiculously noisy bathroom... More

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!
