All the stairs
The very friendly staff and the old, rustic and historic building
The welcome at reception, the good breakfast, the quirky old decor.
Forgot to ask for my eggs well cooked, but that was my fault! .Didn't understand the written directions to the car park very well and ended up with a fine for going into the bus lane.
Fabulous ancient hotel with wooden features. Very nice staff and a very good breakfast - excellent fresh croissants.
Bathroom needs an upgrade - some damaged features. Bedroom was small, little space to move.
Showers are very poor, serious issues with plumbing
Beautiful listed period building with comfy room
Location on the high street was convenient but due to the clubs and bars on the street and the lack of double glazing (due to the listed status) meant that there was a lot of noise until late
Close to town centre
I travel for work every week and this is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Firstly, the room I stayed in didn't have a working shower - I stayed for 2 nights and it still wasn't working when I left. I had to shower in a colleagues room. I was not offered a change of room. Secondly, I waited 25 mins at breakfast before anyone came to serve me - in the end I had to leave for work without breakfast. Lastly, the hotel was very noisy at night, between the street and the guests. Overall, I will never set foot in the place again.
When I left the hotel
hairs in the bath-tube, dirty carpet, no sign of toilet paper anywhere, no any kind of disposable toothbrush or toothpaste given, no shampoo, the bed was super uncomfortable and everything looks like could fall down at any minute!!!! worst experience in my whole life!!!
The location of this hotel is ideal for those exploring Colchester on foot. It is a hotel of historic character rather more than of modern comforts and facilities.
Extremely run down. Room looked like last decorated around 30 years ago with stains on chairs, thin carpet and uncomfortable beds. Bar was deserted at night and only small group in the restuarant. Would def not want to be there for more than night.
all of it
This is an ancient inn with a fantastic history. The staff were incredibly kind and helpful.
Someone needs to get their hands on this place - it could be fabulous. It needs a total overhaul however as it is rather 1980s. Given it was built in the 1400s it ought to be properly restored - it could be glorious.
The staff were friendly and professional. The towels were lovely & fluffy, location fantastic and a comprehensive explanatory folder. Bed comfy and tea and coffee facilities generous and replenished daily.
The bathroom. Split vinyl flooring, split bath panel and tatty shower curtain. Adjoining room meant could hear every word of other guests in general conversation. All carpets seem much, much better days. Floorboards creaked and squeaked.
It's a wonderfully quaint hotel,steeped in history,which is situated in the very heart of the town.The full breakfast was very generous,and the waitress was friendly and helpful.
Despite the fact we had specified a quiet room,we found ourselves overlooking the main street.This became increasingly problematic as the night wore on and the drunks came out of the pubs.Being above a taxi rank didn't help either.
Very centrally located in an interesting period building, friendly staff, good breakfast, reasonable value for money overall.
Very noisy at night from the street: windows could do with new sound-proofed glazing Shower curtain was dirty (thus only the 'fair' for cleanliness). Limited room facilities (for example, no bedside chair).
the room is very stailish
there were no hot water and the heating was very low
Stayed for two night, the room had a lot of character and the rooms at the back are nice and quiet
On the first night stayed at the front room and it was quite noisy and could hear hoovering at 4am in the morning outside my room
In town centre for bar's and restaurants.
Location is excellent. Clean. Friendly staff.
Carpet on the stairs need replacing.
Location in centre was great and the building was old and sympathetically reflected its age in the dinning room and common areas. Staff were helpful and breakfast was OK, in fact the porridge was especially good.
The bedroom was passable for the money but alas the bathroom was 30 years past its best and in dire need of - well starting again!
The staff was friendly and the bed confortable
Nothing to complaint about
The location is very good. All shops are practically at your doorstep!
The extra bed could be of better comfort and the "haunted hotel" reputation was quite a bother if you are not into ghosts
The room was nice, very hot though and noisy. but quite unique.
The breakfast was burnt and dried up and the waiter couldn't speck English. When we asked for some brown sauce he brought out some toast and then cleared off for the rest of the meal so we couldn't ask him again for some.
I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere.
