I have really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. I was slightly apprehensive after reading some of the previous reviews but I found it to be so charming. Yes it could do with some updating in areas but the overall feel to the hotel is warm and friendly. The staff at check in were really helpful nfr informative and I... More

Lovely hotel, stunning lobby. Brilliant swimming & spa facilities, spacious rooms although no fridges. Cosy bar with lovely lady called tina working there. Good food and great prices. Good location for local activities and things to see.

General - clean hotel, nice food, helpful staff, a serious attempt to make the hotel more accessible. But some fall-off such as the inaccessible entrance, missing vertical grab rails in the wetrooms, no clear evacuation policy (I asked for this on registering) and lift problems. The hotel has wide doors and corridors, so plenty of room to manoeuvre around, and... More

My mother in law was taken to Hospital in colchester so we needed a hotel for one night overstay. Booked on line because we could not contact the hotel direct via land line, we needed to talk to the receptionist because we needed to check in very late sometime around mid night. We started phoning the hotel around 7.30pm when... More

My partner and I stayed for a two night break and we had a lovely time at the hotel. It was a "Winter Break" which included bed and breakfast and boy did I stuff my face! I put on 31/2lb. I had stayed at this hotel before and it was exactly the same. It was new for my partner and... More

Just back from a six night stay at this hotel which mostly was a very enjoyable experience. All the staff we encountered were exceptionally friendly and helpful, the food was really good - especially the evening meals! Can certainly recommend the sea bass! Delicious! A bonus was the acceptance of Gourmet Society cards. Our room was larger than average with... More

Stayed overnight for business, only negative is carpet in room a little tired and tv was quite small for the room. Everything else was spot on. Service, welcoming, food selections and reasonably priced, even the alcohol was well priced. I will use this hotel again.

This hotel is dated and the rooms do need a major investment if they are to succeed. Good location, beds ok but do note that The wine is very expensive, price certainly not in keeping with other hotels/restaurants in the area. Our room was clean but dated and wallpaper was hanging off the wall
