Good night guarantee? Absolute rubbish. Been refused a refund after finding blood stains on our bed. Heating was on at 28, could only manage to turn it down to 17, which is still way too hot. We had arrived at about 5:30pm, literally put our bags in our room and had left to go out with friends, we had arrived... More

Still waiting for a response from the manager despite complaining on leaving and ringing a few days later. This time the stay was great. Different room which was clean and no noise. The lady...

Good room clean and tidy staff helpful when needed. Lovely pub next door to it. Wouldn't stay any longer then a night. Hotel on a very busy road one of the main routes in and out of Colchester so trying to get in and out of the car park was horrendous. Car park got pretty full from the punters in... More

We've stayed at Premier Inns on a number of occasions and been very impressed - always super clean, smart and great for kids. Unfortunately, the Colchester venue was not up to scratch. The sheets were dirty and the pillows tired and musty. Sheets were changed but even with a change of pillows they still smelt damp and old and were... More

This Premier Inn is in a very convenient location for Colchester town centre. It's small, clean and a quiet place to stay. The rooms are a decent size and had everything I needed. The staff I met were very pleasant, helpful and efficient. I'd definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone visiting Colchester for business or pleasure.

This is the second time we have stayed here, small hotel but very clean as last time. Staff very friendly and the hotel is very close, a walking distance from the train station and town centre. Also very quiet in the day and at night. Also there is a beefeater next door. Very handy.
