The Best Western Marks Tey Hotel is located immediately off the A12, a few miles west of Colchester. As a result, it's (pros) extremely easy to find and convenient for business commuters but (cons) noisy due to traffic noise and a significant distance from Colchester centre (or is that a pro?!!!). Upon driving into the hotel's large car park, you... More

On a positive note we found the staff to be helpful and polite, the hotel was clean and had an almost "homely" feel. Car parking was easy and free with plenty of spaces to choose from even though the hotel was busy. Wi-Fi was free and easy to connect, nothing complicated about that. The hotel is a little dated with... More

Went for afternoon tea today and what can I say, excellent hotel looks very good and it was extremely clean, the food was good very well presented. The only thing that let the experience down was the service given by the member of staff, she approached us like she had no care in the world, no smile nothing! Then her... More

Spent the night here as part of a package deal for a friends and family party complete with buffet, disco and bed and breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful and the buffet was excellent. The room was clean and adequate with a large comfortable bed. The WiFi was a bit slow but sufficient for checking email. The decor was in... More

Appealing: the new adverts presently running on national television. Very good: proximity to Colchester where we were celebrating a birthday with family. Good: location, easy to find and parking available, friendly junior staff. Not as good: decor of the rooms, fine if you don't look too closely, basic and will do. Poor: decision to give us a room just off... More

Nice enjoyable stay rooms are clean well furnished and bath is excellent -never had a bath fill so quickly! The bar is a bit disappointing -barmaid was totally disinterested in serving me and was more interested in talking to someone else . The bar food was quite pricey for Steak and chips but the waiters were pleasant and gave great... More

Stayed here recently for three nights. Used the hotel as a base to visit the area. Lovely room, nice touches with chocolate and water in the fridge each day. Good breakfast and used the swimming pool. Friendly staff, would stay here again.

This was my second stay at the Marks Tey. the hotel is in a good location just off the A12, with good easy parking and a small but good gym and pool. I have only eaten an evening meal in the bar and had a burger on bot occasions, these are served hot and was very well cooked. The service... More

Arrived early as I was running away from The George Hotel horrible service and creaky floors, and I was allowed early check in at 11am. The receptionist was nice, polite and super helpful. The room was not bad, decent size....although the decor needed updating. Walls were super thin, there was a wedding at the hotel and most rooms were booked... More

Only an overnight stay on this occasion for a quick weekend away but the staff were very helpful and the room was clean, tidy and with modern decor. We stayed in the disabled adapted ground floor room which was a very good size and the twin beds were huge. Apart from a couple of very minor issues that were sorted... More
