4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights midweek in September 2014. The hotel contacted us beforehand to advise about ongoing building works. Initially they wanted us to book in after 6 pm as their reception area was being moved that day. This didn't suit us but after my wife discussed this with the Premier Inn staff they were... More

We spent the night here in August. The staff was so helpful and friendly. The room was wonderful and the bed was very comfortable. They even had a choice of pillow softness to make sleeping better. They had a" great nights sleep" guarantee. The room was clean, quiet and tastefully decorated. Breakfast the next morning was next door at their... More

Rooms do not have air conditioning but curtains had been closed and a fan put on in room to keep in cool. All staff friendly and very attentive. 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!
