I booked this hotel for our first anniversary after going to Colchester zoo during the day. I got told I got a free upgrade like agreed while booking with late rooms.com I was unsure whether it was an upgrade or not but wasn't bothered as the room was lovely. The bed very comfy, the shower was nice and instant coffee machine and iMac in room was a great touch. We booked to eat in the brazier restraunt. The only downfall was when we booked for (7pm) it was empty, it was a Sunday though, but didn't do much for the atmosphere. Had a set menu which I didn't realise, but ordered and food was amazing. Nice service and I got a 20% coupon off aswell, nice touch! I asked if they could bring a bucket with ice up to my room while we were at dinner because we brought our own special bottle of champagne with us! When I got back to our room, our champagne was placed in a nice cold bucket on a stand and our room tidied for us and blinds shut setting the mood! The staff couldn't do enough for us! We had breakfast in our room which was outstanding. Great little gem I would defentley recommend!
