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

Room was fine, but a long walk down endless corridors that all looked exactly the same. The main disappointment was that unless you are a member of the Holiday Inn club, you have to pay for wi-fi, unbelievable!! I was charged 5 pounds for one hour!!!

We have been visiting this hotel for a number of years and find it very comfortable and with excellent communication routes both local and regional. Overall the hotel is very good and by booking on line a reasonable discount can be obtained. Our package was for Bed and Breakfast. It is noted that a large wedding party were staying in... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night. Hard to believe that this hotel is in the middle of a large town. Very quiet. There is a railway line nearby but wasn't a problem. The staff were brilliant. Very friendly and the gentleman at reception was very helpful and knowledgable about the area. Our room was large and spotlessly clean. The... More

I turned up at the hotel very late after a particularly long day. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly making the check-in process, which can be frustrating, painless. Great work by Darren and Samantha, thank you. Rooms are always clean and pleasing. Restaurant was closed due to the hour though I was able to choose from a number... More

We stayed here for a wedding. We got a discounted rate, but it was still quite expensive for a weekend stay. Huge car park and very convenient for the A12. Saying that, We managed to get an early check in (midday) without any trouble. We were on the second floor, which was fine, but there was no lift. The staff... More
