Bedroom very clean but had squeaky floorboards (and room... More

If you've got young kids I'd avoid this place like the plague. The building seems to be put together with shredded wheat. You can hear the footsteps of people in rooms all around and above. The walls shake when doors are closed and the windows do nothing to stop the sound of the traffic. Currently its 10:30 at night and... More

First thing I must praise Premier Inn for is the email a few days before my stay which informed me of the work being carried out at the hotel and how it may affect my stay, it didn't but it was good to know. I just needed some where to lay my head for a night whilst visiting friends in... More

Staff really friendly and helpful. No air conditioning but the staff provided fans, had drawn the curtains to avoid sunshine in the rooms and ice was readily available. I would visit again as the service was good and staff so friendly

One of the great things about Premier Inns is that they are predictable - you always know what you're going to get. This one was no different. It's a little older than some of the ones we've stayed in previously, and is currently undergoing extension and improvement works, but this wasn't in any way disruptive while we were there. There...

We have stayed here now about 4 times. We started off as a couple that stayed and now we have two children and we still go back. Regardless of what time you arrive, the staff are always on hand and friendly. The pre arrival service is brilliant. i had a phone call and two text messages about dinner and just... More

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.
