Pescara House
Ranked #23 of 43 Colchester B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Stayed almost 2 weeks at Pescara House for its convenience to reach downtown by just a short walk. The house locates at the inner side of a main road that we could sleep very well without disturb. Excellent English breakfast, other than a variety of corn flakes, Dave cooked us tasty bacon and sausage together with either sunny egg or smooth scrambled egg and juicy mushroom. My wife liked the organic tea with honey after some toasts and I loved the black coffee. Very full morning and our lunch could either be delayed or even skipped! Before we left for our daily tour, we always asked for advise from Pat. She gave us weather forecast, helpful tourist guide and smart shopper places. We toured late and called for delivery, to our surprise, the dinning table had been set for us with spoon and fork before the delivery arrived!

We really thank for the friendly hospitality of Dave and Pat, we enjoyed a great time in Colchester. We'll come back again.

Room Tip: Book in advance if en-suite twin bedded room is needed.

I stayed 16 nights at the Pescara, a short walk from shops and places to eat. My room was medium-sized, with a good window and radiator, plus a table, chair, chest of drawers, wardrobe, wash-basin, kettle with tea & coffee and TV with Freeview (not all channels receivable). A large shared bathroom and separate WC were near-by. I really enjoyed the cosmopolitan mix of guests and the family's thoughtful hospitality. My choice of a very full English breakfast (partly sourced from local farms) really set me up for the day..

Room Tip: Very popular, so book online as far ahead as possible, particularly if you want a twin bedded room...

I would definitely recommend staying at the Pescara B&B in Colchester. Great value for money, together with friendly service and a lovely room. Good location too, close to the town centre. Thanks to David & Pat for an excellent stay and for the yummy poached egg breakfast every morning!

Clean, friendly and inviting, Pescara House is like a home away from. The little details like some relaxing magazines and books in your room, to remembering what you like for breakfast are very welcoming. And so clean!

The location of the B & B is top notch, too. You are just steps away from the main roads and shops, but the area is pretty quiet, just like my street at home. The Hospital Arms is at the end of street and the Playhouse is just up the road for main meals. There is a Tesco Express close by for snacks or sandwiches if you are traveling.

I really had a great time!
