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.

Building rather cold, heating in the rooms, take a long time to heat up as they are ceiling mounted, so they heat from the top down rather than heat up, which is quicker and...

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.

Very good stay with excellent rooms. The facilities were as expected for budget hotel with competitive prices. The position was easy to find. Having the restaurant next door is always useful. We will certainly book at another Premier Inn on our travels

We had never visited Colchester before, and for our two-night stay wanted somewhere close to the main railway station. Our booking online was easy, although I was puzzled to get an email suggesting that we checked in online to 'save time'. (Could not understand what the saving might be, so ignored the invitation.) 'Live' checking-in was simple, efficient, informative and...
