A reasonable hotel located very close to the town centre. I just wanted somewhere to stay overnight, close to Colchester train station. I was met by the owner who took me to the room and showed me the facilities. The room was clean and bed comfortable. For the price, I think this was a really good deal.

I ate food in the Indian restaurant downstairs, which was fantastic.

Room Tip: I had a double-room, which I would recommend.

I gave this hotel the benefit of the doubt from the reviews I had read on here. Big mistake very very low standard of cleanliness, carpet was filthy, bed clothes were discoloured! room smelt. etc etc. No staff on site. When this was broached with the manager/proprieter after they had been contacted by the booking agent, It resulted in a very unprofessional telephone call.

I was overbooked at the hotel and the staff placed me in a nearby flat to which they took me. The proprietor arranged taxis from the flat to the places I needed to go. The flat was clean and came equipped with the usual hotel amenities. For the 50 Pound price, I was pleased with the service.

we got to colchester late friday afternoon from a long drive from edinbrugh and was welcome to a very very nice hotel . the room was very clean the staff was very happy to help in anyway, the food was spot on for the 50 pounds a night it was very very cheap as this should cost a lot more ,, and for the nasty comments left by othere hotle users i think they was in a diffrent hotel as the globe hotel colchester essex was perfect and i will use again and tell my friends to use many thanks again chris savage edinbrugh scotland

this is the worst poor excuse of a hotel i have ever stayed in . Due to weather conditions and being stranded this was the closest place we could find to stay. i resent the 75 pounds i payed for a room. taking your money was clearly the only interest they had being overly freindly and polite untill they your money after that they was unhelpful,staff when you did see them they did not seem to have clue what they was doing. The rooms unclean and uncomfortable and certainly not a place i would stay out of choice. Just to add the restaurant was equally dismal with food tasting like a icelands ready meal curry.Again staff had problems knowing what they was suppose to do and getting into trouble with management for bringing the meal up to the room.

There was no staff when i came to check in, there was no staff when i went to check out, there were no staff when it came to breakfast, there was even a couple cooking there own breakfast!! The place itself is actually quite nice, but the service from the owner and his staff (his family) was non existent, I may as well of been staying at my home...never will I return to the Globe and I highly recommend you get more value for your money and book into a campsite!!

vijayakarri, Manager at Globe Hotel, responded to this reviewResponded August 13, 2011

When people write saying that dont bother save your money, this customer and his colleagues
stayed at the hotel on many occasions. We never had problems with them for two years . On the last visit they were carrying out not permitted business Like drink and drugs we had to terminate their stay prematurely. The company who sent this guys we have reported who in turn charged their worker for cleaning the hotel rooms. The persons who was involved put this message on trip advisor thinking
we will be out of business. He is wrong. We offer a clean hotel and at a very reasonable cost and we run the hotel at 85%occupancy rate. This tells how good the hotel is.
