I wasn't expecting plush modern decor nor a 5* experience at this price point so wasn't disappointed - in fact quite the opposite. Hotel has a large and free carpark the reception staff were polite, friendly and helpful at all times, the room (ground floor) was large with lots of storage and was spotlessly clean, large opening windows (a novelty...

Me and a large group of family were here for a wedding. Me and my fiancee booked in for 3 nights, Thursday through to Sunday. When we booked, we were told we would receive a 'discount rate' for being part of a wedding party. Our stay came in at £85 per night, and we were told that did not include... More

The hotel is in a good location. It is situated just a 10 minute drive away from Colchester Zoo so is ideal if you've had a long day at the zoo and need somewhere convenient to stay. The room itself was great. It was spacious, the bed was comfy and had lots of complimentaries such as tea, coffee, shower gel... More

We went to a friends wedding reception, the main meal was for us disappointing, but the banqueting Hall was impressive in its décor. A hotel for people on there way to somewhere else, all the basic facilities you would expect from as good hotel, friendly staff, well kept surroundings, excellent breakfast.

I have stayed at this hotel several times while visiting family and once again had a lovely relaxing stay. All the staff work so hard and are so welcoming. Yes the carpets are a little worn but the rooms, towels and linen are spotlessly clean. The breakfast serving dishes had been updated and improved since our last stay so improvements... More

This Best Western is near Colchester but there's not much in the nearby area in terms of other restaurants or pubs, so, if you are staying there, you are staying THERE...! The rooms are fine (spacious and nothing to worry about!). We were there on a coach tour, so we had set menus, but, if you are travelling independently, you... More

We were impressed with the greeting we received and were happy to be given a corner table in the window. We had a generous supply of sandwiches after our prawn starter, delicious whole meal scones togther with jam and cream and then 4 cream cakes (2 each) followed by a traditional trifle. We were so full we had to bring... More

We were taken here for afternoon tea by friends to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. Firstly we were given a tiny Amuse Bouche consisting of Crayfish, Salmon & Egg, it came served on a spoon about the size of a large tablespoon!
