“Fantastic B&B in a great Central Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Lovely B&B in a great central location with easy safe parking yet in a lovely conservation area with an almost small village feel with the lovely green area opposite and very very quiet for being so close to the town centre.Rod the owner was so helpful and knowledgeable of the area and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was large and well furnished and had a great ensuite with a fab power shower and keeping the best till last was the freshly cooked breakfast just superb,really cant fault this place and will certainly book again.

We came to Colchester and stayed at this b&b on the recommendations of previous reviews. We were not disappointed. Rod is an excellent host. The room was clean, well equiped and the breakfast was very good. Would definately go back there again.

Very good value for money. Separate entrance, big and clean room, super comfortable double bed, plenty of hot water and strong shower! There are some dvd movies and books in the room, hairdryer, kettle and etc. Every morning I found a cookie on the table, which was very nice!
Also, very hospitable and friendly owner!
Would really recommend Greenview house b&B!!

rooms not big enough, showers pathetic, water pressure zero, stairs to bedrooms narrow and dangerous, fold down bed for grandkids blocked access to a room, breakfast facilities were insufficient ( seat 5 ) for our party of 6 adults & 2 kids. we booked and paid for 3 nights but stayed for 1, ended up at the GEORGE. there is no way that our family could, under any circumstance , recommend this facility. noticed a FOR SALE sign attached to building. garden gnomes encouraged to apply.

Room Tip: go somewhere else

This is a brilliantly located B&B within walking distance of Colchester town center. The room was clean and well equipped with a fantastic shower and bathroom facility. Even though it is so close to the town center the room was very quiet and I had a great nights sleep. Had a very warm welcome by the host and the breakfast was in my opinion faultless. Overall I have no problem whatsoever awarding it 5stars as it was all you could ask for a small family run B&B. Thanks

I stayed here with my friends for a weekend in Aug-12 and was delighted with every aspect of our stay. We arrived late due to bad traffic but this wasn’t an issue for are host who was extremely polite and helpful and provided a very homely relaxed environment. The B&B itself is in an excellent location less than a 5 minute walk from the centre of town and train station. The rooms were awesome, well furnished and with lots of thoughtful touches that add to the warm feel of the place. The bed was so comfortable and I had a great nights sleep. The shower and toilet facilities were impeccable with plenty of shampoo/soap etc. The breakfast was one of the best IV had at a B&B with a wide choice of options available. All in all a brilliant experience and would defiantly stay again.
