I stayed here in a twin room with my teenage son on a Friday and Saturday night. The room was clean and well presented. Although it was on the ground floor, we didn't hear any road noise. There was ample parking. The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. And the breakfast (which we had paid for in... More

And what a lovely... More

Particular mention should be made about Mel and Jorge who were both very helpful. The hotel is situated next to the The Albert Beefeater which made getting... More

Premier Inns in my view have slipped down the performance table in terms of what they offer. A good night depends on a pleasant welcome and good bed. This one had a pleasant enough welcome but the bed was far too soft. The air conditioning had been on all day, it was a cold summer's day and the room really... More

The Staff at this hotel really went that extra mile. Well done. The restaurant was newly refurbished and the food was excellent although I did feel for the location it was on the pricey side. Overall I am very happy and would recommend

A very warm welcome awaits visitors here and being in such a good location for Colchester and getting to surrounding areas. The hotel is spotlessly clean with modern comfortable bed. It has the usual open shelves for putting garments on but no draws for privicy, this seems to be a standard now for Premier Inns.
