“Lovely Property, Excellent Location”
Reviewed October 30, 2014 for a stay in October 2014
person found this review helpful

We decided to stay in the property as we were attending a Family wedding in Colchester. It was more cost effective to use Castellan as a base rather than pay for two nights hotel accommodation. I travelled with my Mum and Dad, my husband and two children age 2 and 7.
We found the property fairly easily (using Google maps)although my dad had a different sat nav and was sent round Colchester!) We arrived at the property and had a lovely warm welcome from the owners who showed us around the property and how to find and use everything.
Left in the fridge was a bottle of Cava - what a lovely touch.
The property has two double bedrooms and a sofa bed. They also have a travel cot, which they set up for us and provided all the linen. The rooms were of a lovely size - there was plenty of storage, so cases could be unpacked.
Lots of nice hot water too! A bonus when we were all getting ready for the wedding.
There was enough parking outside the property for two cars and Colchester town centre was only a few minutes walk away. I didnt appreciate how near it was!
The park next door is worth a visit - it has a fantastic children's playground. We also visited the wonderful Colchester Zoo whilst there.
We catered for ourselves and found the property had everything we needed.
I would defintely recommend the property - and will probably be back!
Youseph and his wife are very friendly and communication was very prompt and they were extremely helpful.
Thank you!
