My hushand and I stayed at Timbers for eight nights- and enjoyed every minute. Angela and Alan are fantastic: extremely welcoming, very friendly, very helpful and very likeable. The rooms are spacious, clean and very well equipped. And the breakfast comes close to paradise: whatever you like is on the menu!!! The view into the garden while having breakfast adds... More

Described as Luxury B & B , certainly lives up to that description. Welcoming hosts , well appointed rooms and a breakfast to die for. Located in a quiet cul - de - sac with parking , and , within easy reach of local pubs and restaurants. Would not even search for other B & B's when I return to... More

Set in a modern, large house. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Alan and Angela are excellent hosts. Friendly and helpful with plenty of suggestions of where to eat and visit. They have tried to think of everything you might need to make your stay the best they can. From good quality WiFi, to a carafe of sherry. Would stay... More

This B & B had the wow factor as soon as you walked through the door, Angela & Alan are excellent hosts. Room & en-suite were spacious with lovely decor, and spotlessly clean. Lots of little extras that just makes the difference. Would stay here again without a doubt.

I've been lucky enough to stop at some quality B+Bs and Timbers is another one I am happy to recommend. Clean, all the trimmings and everything I expect from 4* accommodation. As for the unique selling point, at Timbers, it is the hosts, Alan and Angela that provide the X factor! Both go out of their way to meet you... More

We stayed here in October...what a fabulous b&b you feel you are somewhere very special and Angela & Alan could not have been more hospitable. The breakfast was outstanding, most comfortable beds and lots lovely little extras-shortbread & sherry in our room. Will definitely return and would highly recommend!

Absolutely worth the 9.6 on booking.com so I believe it should be raised to equal heights on tripadvisor. Lovely rooms, small sherry on arrival,great breakfast, especially the eggs Benedict. Located in private street with sunken garden and arbour...perfect

We have just returned from a lovely two night break in Colchester. We stayed in the Timbers B&B. We arrived to a very warm welcome from Angela & Alan. We stayed in the lovely Oak room overlooking the garden. As well as the very nicely equipped tea/coffee tray, Angela offered to make us a tray of tea. Lovely little extras... More

Booked a night at Timbers for the price of a crummy chain hotel and had a real 4 star welcome. Big comfy bread, tea and cakes on arrival, sherry and fruit in room, help to find a restaurant and best breakfast for ages.
