I booked here owing to its convenient location, with the expectation of it being to the usual high standard of the Premier Inn brand. Have to admit to being a little disappointed. The room was very small, toiletries cheap and the whole place was decidedly shabby. For dinner and breakfast you had to go outside and next door to the...

We were made to feel welcome right from registration. The staff could not have been more helpful. The room was clean, warm and comfortable. The Meal Deal was well worth the money, especially if you have a large appetite. The food at the Beefeater next door was very good. We would stay again.

We stayed on Christmas evening at Cowdray Ave Premier Inn Colchester after visiting relatives for the day. The hotel staff were very welcoming and could not do enough for us. The room was a good size and very clean, the bed was extremely comfortable as were the pillows. We would use this hotel again it was very convenient for us.

Traffic a little noisey could do with new tripple glazed windows. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The receptionist Matthew was a credit to Premiere inn and took time to ask about our journey and where we had journeyed from.

Premier Inn was everything we expected it to be comfortable and just what we wanted. The location enabled us to get into town on foot and this was very useful for visiting the shopping centre in town.

Excellent place to stay. Staff all very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast served in the Beefeater adjacent to the hotel. Good selection of juices,cereals,etc. Cooked breakfast always fresh and cooked to order. We invited the family to join us for Sunday lunch which they all thoroughly enjoyed. Good food served in a relaxed and friendly manner.
