Stayed two nights in Superior Room. Decent room marred by narrow double bed and really irritating non-stop rumble from somewhere deep inside the walls, Nice bathroom but again let down by non-functioning fan. Breakfast OK but not briliant, seemed poor value.

I booked a night at this hotel to celebrate 6 months of being with my partner and booked the 4 poster/canopy room. Had I paid the full price for this room (had a £50 Best Western gift voucher) would not have been overly impressed with finding the 4 poster bed comprised of 4 thin posts with no canopy at all!...

Needed a comfortable hotel within walking distance of town, decent parking, breakfast and easy access to the rest of the area around Colchester to visit old haunts from Uni days in the 1970s. It met all these needs at a reasonable cost for an historic hotel. The room was good size with large en-suite, I've paid more for less before!... More

Very nice hotel. We had a rather small room, but worked quiet well anyway. Free wifi and a good traditionel breakfast. Friendly service. We only stayed for one night. We had dinner in the restaurant, which was very good. We can recommend this hotel.

All the way at the end of High or East Hill Street you will find the Rose & Crown. We were attracted by the mix of old and new. Each room looks like most other hotels on the inside but the old world charm of the hallways, lobby, restaurant and exterior is unique. We stayed two nights here in late... More

I needed a place to stay near Ipswich, for a Saturday night, as I was attending a party in the area. For some reason, hotels in the area were very heavily booked. I found the Rose and Crown through Expedia and only an Executive room was left. It was a little more than I had hoped to spend, but less... More

Had initially booked The George but was so pleased I changed it a week before we stayed as went stopped off at The George for a drink on the Friday evening and it was in a very busy (read loud) part of the High Street. The Rose and Crown is about a ten to fifteen minute walk from the centre... More

Stayed at this hotel in July 2014. Was making move from wheelchair to crutches having broken my leg. Was staying alone for business so very much dependent on help from staff. The hotel itself is lovely - quite old/listed with lovely interior. I stayed in a newer part which was also very nice - comfortable bed, excellent bathroom, on the... More

Lovely old and interesting hotel, Original features lovingly preserved make this hotel a perfect place to stay if you want to visit Colchester. Close to town with good parking. We left our car there and just walked into Colchester. We ate at the restaurant, which was very busy when we were there but we booked in the morning and they... More
