really recommend this Premier Inn,it has been newly refurbished plus the staff really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The room was immaculate with a choice of soft and hard pillows. The free wifi had a good connection too.

stayed one night and found the staff especially helpful - we had booked a disabled room and had room 1 - I did ask about a wet room, but Emily told us how far they were away from reception and we decided to stay in the room with a low bath. Asked for a bath mat and one was brought... More

Very close to Colchester this premier inn in ideally located. it is modern and clean but fairly spread out so you may have a long walk to your room. I would skip the breakfast as the service was very slow and poor.

this hotel has most of the good features that you expect from a Premier Inn. Our room was large and well designed, and the bed was very comfortable. Also there were plenty of parking spaces. However the food in the adjacent Beefeater was not as good as in the restaurants twinned with other hotels in the chain. The thing we... More

We stayed in room 22 we were very impressed... More

Just returned from a night away in Essex. Accommodation located approximately 10 mins drive from Colchester. Found the room more than spacious enough for the three of us ( two adults and one teenager ). The room had benefited from a very recent referb, so ticks all round for well maintained and cleanliness. Staff were friendly, helpful and professional with... More

Emily at reception is an asset for your hotel. Staffs are very polite and makes you to feel you are in a home away from your home. Rooms are well maintained and welcoming , of course it seems to be new rooms as advertised. At reception I requested for an iron board and iron box on the day evening I... More

I believe this Premier Inn has recently been upgraded. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the sound proofing was excellent with special attention given to the silence of the corridor doors. The disabled twin bedded room allowed plenty of room for wheel chair access with a newly appointed 'wet room' shower room and disabled toilet. All in all we... More

The Premier Inn is new, clean and the rooms are lovely. Service in the Inn was great but not in the bar. Stay away from the restaurant. Both meals we ordered were disgusting and had to be sent back to the kitchen after a single mouthful

Stayed here for two nights i slept well but my hubby was a little unsettled the first night. There is a great pub well priced just outside. The room we stayed in was lovely and we had fresh towels on both nights. Staff are all very friendly and happy to help. Also has free parking. We did hear arguments outside... More
