We arrived at around 12 noon, following a very tiring 12 hour journey from Florida only for the duty receptionist to say that we were VERY early. We acknowledged this, but were hoping to leave some bags and freshen up before going to meet up with friends and family. She still had to remind us that check in is not... More

The staff at this hotel were great! The reception staff were chatty and very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant staff were equally friendly and helpful. There are always plenty of staff on duty which gives them the opportunity to give outstanding customer service. There was a good selection of food on the menu at dinner, which... More

Just stayed at this hotel last night wih my daughter. This was an ideal location for us, not far from where my daughter was having her hen do. We found the checking in process very easy & the staff very friendly & chatty. Our room was lovely & clean, beds very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast & also 2... More

I have stayed here twice recently and been very impressed by the service. I stayed in an executive room which are all on the ground floor. Comfortable and spacious. I had an issue connecting to wifi and one of the reception staff went out of her way to ring their helpdesk. She then handed me the phone and they talked... More

Stayed at this hotel at the weekend just passed and have to say that it was excellent. The staff went out of their way and every single person demonstrated an excellent attitude and were really nice. Rooms were clean and breakfasts were lovely. First time in Colchester area but if I go again i'll be choosing this hotel.

We needed to stay overnight in Colchester for our daughter's graduation ceremony the next day. We didn't want budget but also didn't want to spend a fortune. The Holiday Inn looked okay and the price wasn't too bad so we booked two rooms and opted for the dinner, bed and breakfast package because it looked to be good value. We... More

As an IHG member I would normally book direct with Holiday Inn but found Expedia cheaper on this occasion, which is very unusual - I think this was the start of my problems! Arrived to find that my standing request relating to the type and location of my room (as recorded in the membership details) had not been possible due... More

We stayed last week for 2 nights at the Holiday Inn Colchester, at Eight Ash Green and what a great location it is for a number of local visitor attractions. Our objective was to visit the renowned Colchester Zoo and both it and the Holiday Inn didn't let us down. The Hotel is situated close to the A12 and as... More

Yet again Peter Brennan has taken customer service to a new level. The manager of this hotel needs to be congratulated. Every single member of staff was amazing. On check in Iona ( I think ) was so friendly and the next days always smiling always helpful. The gentleman who was running the Gym this Friday morning was for me... More
