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.

The room was of a good size, and spotlessly clean. Wifi was free, and the bed very comfortable. It's very well located - less than15 minutes walk to the centre of town, and with buses nearby. I shall stay there again.

This isn't on the same level as other Premiere Inns I've stayed at. The location was good, close to town and within walking distance. We only stayed for one night for business, but checked-in early afternoon. Check-in wasn't great, the were just swapping over shifts and were joking about how useless the other guy was...We weren't given any details about... More

Normally love Premier Inns and value the fact that you know what you're getting, which is usually quality. Clearly not many people take the meal deal to eat in the Beefeater next door. Beefeater gave us a menu which said the deal was for selected items only but noone seemed to know what these selected items were and they weren't... More
