Stayed for a couple of nights whilst on our annual visit from Sydney. We stay here as the location is perfect, the rooms are well equipped and the breakfast is excellent. The only niggle on this occasion was the wifi that is temperamental. The restaurant us consistently good and the staff are super friendly and helpful.

My partner & I have just returned from a two night stay at The North Hill Hotel. From booking the hotel right through to checking out I cannot find fault with this lovely hotel. Perfectly located close to the town centre & restaurants. We were warmly greeted upon arrival & given a free upgrade. Our room was situated at the... More

The best Afternoon Tea we've ever eaten, food was delicious and plentiful, staff were very friendly and so accommodating taking care of our every request with a smile, nothing was too much bother for them. The atmosphere was incredibly relaxing, too many times if you go out for afternoon tea somewhere nice, the food might be lovely but the atmosphere... More

I have stayed at this hotel 3 years running for an annual business meeting in Colchester. The first time I stayed in the main hotel and the other two times I stayed in the new buildings in the garden. Very clean and the staff are very attentive. The only criticism is that it is on a very busy road with... More

When I lasted stayed at this hotel in 1990 it was a typical commercial hotel of little note beyond being centrally-located and functional. Now it has been transformed into a chic and quite distinctive hotel with the surrounding premises integrated into a relaxing and well appointed establishment. The rooms are pleasantly decorated and the restaurant provides a high quality breakfast,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights last week and were very impressed by this restaurant with rooms! Exceptionally clean, well appointed and a great breakfast. We requested a room overlooking the street as we like to experience where we are, and on checkin were warned it could be noisy. The windows are fitted with screens that if you use them... More

The building has a lot of memories for me as my mother worked in the building before it was a hotel for over 30 years. We went for a drink and a look around to see how this lovely building has been transformed. The manager was fantastic and showed us all around the hotel and the rooms are a credit... More

A very relaxing ambience without being fussy. Competent staff. Quiet, inviting room with very comfortable bed. The bathroom was brilliant with the best shower I've ever come across. Well cooked and prepared breakfast. All in all, would recommend.

We found this hotel to be in a great location for the town centre, shops and the old Saxon castle. The staff were all friendly, polite and helpful. We were made to feel welcome and there was a pleasant atmosphere. The room was clean and spacious and freshened up daily. Over all, I would definitely recommend this hotel and would... More
