Delivering presents to my son and met him in Colchester. Very nice reception staff on arrival. We were allocated one of the rooms that had only been opened less than a week. Very nice comfortable room.The hotel staff are very attentive and all very friendly. Lenny Henry would be proud of them. the fire alarm went off just before 7am.... More

a very warm welcome on arrival, and during my stay. At night time the lights in the room were put on low together with the curtains drawn, felt nice to return in the evening. The room and bathroom were in excellent order and very clean.

This is a friendly and clean hotel and we did not experienced any disturbance from the current building works. The food was very good at the restaurant next door. Good parking. Would stay again at this hotel.

There is a massive extension currently being built, as result reception was housed in a temporary port a cabin. We arrived about 6 o'clock, the receptionist was very helpfull and friendly and checked us in promptly.... More

From entering the temporary porta cabin reception we were made to feel welcome, all the staff we met were all pleasant. The room was warm and cosy and bed so comfortable that you did not want to get up. Even when you returned at the end of day the curtains were drawn and bed lights on so welcoming.

I stay quite often at Premier inns and this was -by far- the friendliest staff ever met! BUT: The hotel was rebuilding while I was there. Only got the "warning" for that by email the afternoon before I arrived; so I couldn't re-book. Unfortunately the (very noisy) builders had a truck running under my window at 6.00AM. I have to...

Really happy with our recent stay at Premier Inn. Despite on-going renovation to the hotel, I was very surprised on how quiet it was. also being a stone throw from the north of the A12 makes it very easily accessible. Room and bathroom were in great shape & more importantly very clean. Would definitely recommend.
