This is third time we have stayed here over the last 3-4 years and will stay again in the future for the following reasons. The hotel is easy to get to, just off the A12 five-ten minutes drive outside the centre of Colchester, close to the seaside resorts of Walton, Frinton, Clacton along with Constable counrty close by and there...

Our family party of 7 stayed over the weekend. My husband and I both use Holiday Inns / Express when travelling for work, but this has to be one of the best. All the staff from reception to restaurant, cleaning staff and the leisure suite staff were at all times friendly, helpful and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble and... More

We were up from Devon for a family 80th birthday and my father booked 3 rooms for the seven of us. On their arrival my Father, who has mobility issues, explained that as there was no lift the room he had been given would be a problem and immediately they were upgraded to a ground floor room, no fuss made...

We came to Colchester for a birthday party and chose this hotel for it's vicinity. We have used Holiday Inns before but this is the best so far. The welcome of the desk staff, who were under pressure at the time, was faultless. The room was very clean and had all the facilities that you would expect. The one negative... More

I am going to begin by saying that I have stayed in several Holiday Inns but I have never experienced such excellent customer service. I was warmly welcomed with a complimentary drink and was helped to my room. At breakfast I was taken to a table and shown all the breakfast areas. All the cleaning staff wished me a good... More

Firstly, the hotel front desk girls were really friendly and even had a few cheeky jokes with me during check in. I love a bit of personality rather than the usual "Evening sir" YAWN. These girls were fun. I tried to blah a room upgrade which didn't work but they even made a joke of that which I took on... More

I booked the Holiday Inn Express in Colchester through hotels.com believing that the hotel was actually located in Colchester on Abbots Lane just off of the A12 . On arrival at the Holiday inn in Colchester however, we discovered that the Holiday Inn Express was actually 13 miles away in Langley which is not in Colchester. The Holiday Inn in... More
