Stayed here for one night before going to Harwich, staff were so helpful with providing as much information as possible. Rooms were very clean and the bed was so comfy. Have not stayed at a Premier inn for a long time and this one definitely gives Premier inn a good name. Lovely pub on the premise!

Me and my partner stopped here over night so we could visit the zoo the next day, On arrival we were very sceptical about this hotel. But I am pleased to say we were really impressed with this premier inn. The room was spotlessly clean- a real credit to the house keeping staff and as someone with Ocd I am... More

After a long drive arrived to a very warm welcome. Hotel is spotless, beds comfy & everything you need in the room, including air con. Only thing I would say is take your own shower gel/soap as theirs didn't really foam up. For £40 a night for a room I thought it was very good value for money. Be warned... More

Booking and check in processes very efficient. Good location, Nice room, but the window did not open and the air conditioning defaulted to 25 degrees despite setting it at 19 degrees. It was very stuffy and as a result impossible to sleep. On check out receptionist said in future to book a room with windows which opened! Breakfast good value,... More

We stayed here for one night on a Saturday after visiting the zoo. We booked a family room. All 3 reception staff we met throughout our stay were friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable, (especially the bed!) and clean. The room provides 'firm' and 'soft' pillows. Also just a sheet provided if one wanted to not use the... More

Excellent stay. Room, bathroom, bed linen and towels immaculate. Staff helpful and friendly. Excellent value for money. Better than many 4 and 5 star hotels I've stayed at. Bed was comfortable. Nice and quiet and the Table table restaurant attached served a lovely meal.

Had an overnight stop over in Colchester on our way to West Mersea. Room was clean, and very accommodating. Thermometer in room indicated temperature at 26 degrees Centigrade. Two electric fans were located in the bedroom and the window was wide open. We were amazed that there was no air conditioning in room 112. Needless to say we had a... More

Each time we stay here, the staff are smiling and the rooms are clean and fresh. The parking is free and accessible. The food and service is of a high standard and professional in every respect. Enough said.
