This Premier Inn has all the usual comforts you would expect, but no lift, so beware if you have mobility problems. The staff were very friendly and were happy to move us around to get a ground floor room. An extension is currently being built, but there was no noise or disruption. There is disabled parking and a ramp right... More

Premier Inn on A12 Colchester needs air conditioning. Room was unbearably hot even with two portable fans on full. No light or table available for single bed user so they have to have all room lights on to read in bed!

Warm welcome, great breakfast, efficient staff. Car parking was in the main good, however if you did not prebook a reserved spot it would cost more in fees. This would not benefit frequent visitors. Apart from this had an excellent stay.

Friendly staff. Bright fresh rooms with a fan on and curtains closed to keep the room cool. Would definitely stay there again! The restaurant next door had a great range of food at good prices and the breakfast was great.

We were in Colchester for a weekend and booked this premier inn as it was such a good price. We received a friendly welcome from Emily on Reception and she explained the extra systems they had put in place as the weather had been and still was extremely hot. Our room was clean and what you expect from premier inn.... More

I enjoyed an overnight stay at the Premier Inn Colchester. The room was quiet, very clean with excellent facilities which I find at most Premier Inns. The food at the adjoining Table Table chain was also very good. I would highly recommend.

We used the hotel while we were visiting family, we would tend to stay in more expensive hotels while we are on holiday but have always found Premier Inns fine if you want somewhere to sleep rather than act as a base for you holiday. i.e. if you want coffee shops a chose of places to eat etc. But the...
