Holiday Inn Colchester

Reviewed July 14, 2014

Stayed at this hotel for one night. Hard to believe that this hotel is in the middle of a large town. Very quiet. There is a railway line nearby but wasn't a problem. The staff were brilliant. Very friendly and the gentleman at reception was very helpful and knowledgable about the area. Our room was large and spotlessly clean. The only downside for us was the over bouncy bed! That's not a criticism, just not for us. Breakfast was very good and plentiful. Would definately stay again.

I turned up at the hotel very late after a particularly long day. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly making the check-in process, which can be frustrating, painless.
Great work by Darren and Samantha, thank you.
Rooms are always clean and pleasing.
Restaurant was closed due to the hour though I was able to choose from a number of alternatives to the bar food. Very helpful and friendly service by the bar staff Jack and Vanessa.
Really pleased with the level of service provided here.

We stayed here for a wedding. We got a discounted rate, but it was still quite expensive for a weekend stay.

Huge car park and very convenient for the A12.

Saying that, We managed to get an early check in (midday) without any trouble. We were on the second floor, which was fine, but there was no lift.

The staff were super friendly throughout our whole stay and made us feel very welcome. We were there during the world cup and they could probably have done with one or two extra people on the bar, what with all the wedding guests as well.

The room was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The black out curtains were great.

Breakfast was brilliant - particularly for the hangover we were carrying the next morning. I'd be happy to stay there again.

Have stayed here a couple of times when visiting family, and have always found the staff very friendly and helpful, the room clean and comfortable and the food very good. Having youngsters with you in a hotel can be a bit daunting, but the staff made them feel welcome and helped with any enquiries we had. The facilities are great too, including the pool. Will definitely use this Holiday Inn when return that way again.

I stayed here for a business trip for two nights. The staff are very friendly and very helpful, the bar area has a lovely atmosphere and the food is really quite nice. I used the gym when I was there and if you're a gym buff like me, youd be disappointed with the equipment as there isnt all that much but enough to do your legs and arms I suppose, still in saying that, its better than not having any gym equipment to be able to use at all and the best part of all is that it is complimentary. If you are in the area id put this hotel at the top of your priority for all your business needs.

We stayed at the Hotel for three nights and the location was just perfect for us to visit family. The reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the room which was spacious looked out over the gardens. The bed was so comfortable to sleep in!

Chain hotels can be a bit iffy but not so this place.
We were staying here with a group of friends on the way to a family wedding. Our standard room was clean, comfortable, quiet. There is a nice pool with fitness equipment to use if you feel energetic.
We all ate in the restaurant & found the choice good. As a couple our fish cakes & steak meals were fine & decent value. Service was a little slow but then we weren't in a hurry.
Breakfast had a good choice & we were all able to linger over it and chat.
The rooms were booked through Expedia at excellent value.
