When we arrived we were told that they would be adding on VAT and that breakfast was not included, which wasn't mentioned on the website. VERY SHOCKED TO BE TOLD £100 FOR ONE NIGHT! It's meant to be just a basic room, we arrived late 8pm and left early so cant justify that money. Understandable £100 a night for a... More

This Premier Inn is excellent. Positioned just outside the town centre (about one mile) makes it an ideal place to stay for sightseers and business people. Leave your car in the car park and either walk (about 1 mile) or bus into the town. If you walk, go through the wonderful colourful Colchester Castle Park, particularly good in spring. The... More

Superb two day stop over. Reception staff were excellent. Very helpful with information about Colchester. The room was clean, comfortable and up to the usual high Premier standard. The walk into town took all of 10 mins and there are some super little shops. Ate out so I can't comment on the Beefeater. Colchester castle opens in April so we... More

You know where you are with Premier Inn, clean comfortable quiet and the staff are polite and friendly, and I must say the beds at this hotel are particularly comfortable. Breakfast was a mix between a buffet for some of the cold stuff and a waitress service for the hot and was an all you can eat deal, the waitress... More

Stayed two nights at this hotel on a visit to my home county of Essex. Convenient if coming by train (North Station) and 10 minute walk into town (albeit up North Hill). Could get a bus if necessary). In general all Premier Inns are the same so you expect a certain standard and that is what I got. However, I... More

Went there yesterday to get a meal from the Albert Beefeater yesterday, what a calamity. We needed a table for seven which we booked , in hindsight a mistake , should have asked for a threee and a four, but was strange because there appeared to be plenty of room in the restuarant. We were told the wait was forty... More

Lovely clean and comfortable room.Staff were helpful and pleasant. Would definitely go back. Only let down was one morning having to wait for nearly 40 mins for breakfast. But the service and food were good.

Friendly, helpful welcome. Clean and comfortable quiet room. Restaurant in the pub next door offered good basic food and more friendly service. Slept wonderfully well in a comfy bed. Next time I'm in Colchester - I will book in here again.

Couldn't fault the service from the friendly staff. Booked an extra night at very short notice and the staff managed to organise it so that I kept the same room. My friend and I had a good steak meal in the restaurant next door.
