The room was a reasonable size, very comfortable and well maintained. The shower was fab and the breakfast very good (nicely cooked, presented and not too much!). The staff were very friendly and very helpful. Parking is made very simple too in a town where parking is a premium.
I would highly recommend it as a place to stay in Colchester - opening onto North Hill and a short step from shops, cinema and many restaurants. I have heard that the restaurant in the hotel is good (but didn't try it).
There is some residual noise from the traffic - but the double-glazing certainly helped.
All in all - very good value for money and very comfortable.
