Hi there, Thank you for your review for our Colchester Cowdray hotel. We are very sorry to hear that the beds were worn out and you were unable to have a goodnight sleep. That is very disappointing especially as we take great pride in the quality of our beds and mattress. We would like to assure you we have made sure that all your feedback and comments have been passed on to the relevant teams.

Once again we are very sorry for any disappointment on this occasion, but we are confident on your next experience you will have a much more enjoyable stay! Kind regards, Danny
