Excellent Hotel but don't eat at restaurant as the food is not up to the premier standard. I will stay at hotel but travel to another eatery.We were very disappointed buy the selection of food on the sunday of our stay.

A great nights sleep, the beds are so comfortable. The A12 Premier Inn is situated in a great location, it has a Table Table pub/restaurant right next door that serves good quality food; the main town of Colchester is only 10 minutes by car and also very easy access to the A12.

The bed was extremely comfortable and I had a wonderful sleep. However on arrival at the room there was a 'mouldy' smell in the actual room. The carpet was a bit threadbare and the room was cold. A lack of room service meant I went to bed hungry. But overall not a bad experience.

We stayed for two nights at the Premier Inn (A12) in Colchester recently. The room was immaculate and had everything we needed. The price was reasonable. We stay here about 4 times a year and it is always very satisfactory.

Just as you would expect from premier inn, clean ,efficient staff and a good nights sleep .despite being located close to main road, noise was minimal and didn't disturb me. Useful having a restaurant attached too.

This Premier Inn really delivers on its promises. It's fresh and well appointed. No frills but clean, with everything you could need for a short stay. Comfortable bed, enough hanging space, good TV, air con... 10/10 for an extra mirror at standing height with lights (outside the bathroom so it doesn't get steamed up) plus a double socket and hairdryer...
