Good location for town, Plenty of eating opportunities nearby
Decor very tired
Had to wait for someone to arrive I think to check us in Bathroom was not clean Room was very dusty and not clean No one there to check us out
the lady on duty was absolutely amazing in fact it was her helpfulness and friendliness that made our break so enjoyable.the room was clean and the hotel so obviously steeped in history was amazing will stay again for sure
nothing to dislike unlless your oneofthose picky people who look for problems no matter what great value for money
good location and enjoyable breakfast.
bathroom was cold.
Friendly welcome we asked for iron and one was provided including ironing board was bit worried as window was near to road but didn't hear a thing slept like a baby very comfortable bed room very clean friendly welcome breakfast was cooked fresh lady who cooked was very friendly and helpful would stay again
1 snail in bathroom on ceiling
We were allowed an extra guest to come into the room for pre drinks. Staff were friendly and helpful.
We missed breakfast because it finished at 9am and we didn't know this.
the room was clean and basic.
Had to ask for more towels and there was no where to hang towels etc in the bathroom. We missed breakfast by half an hour (there was only a small window for breakfast) and there was no offer of anything basic i.e., even toast. So we missed out! Admittedly we were outside the time but to finish at 9am on a Saturday morning is quite restrictive.
The location was excellent, and the woman on duty at breakfast-time was very helpful.
There was no manned reception, and it took over 5 minutes to find the solitary staff member. The room was very small, and the shower room even smaller, although clean. One bed was comfortable, the other was very uncomfortable. Breakfast was minimal, and no other food was offered, and the bar, although stocked, seemed never to be open.
very noisy could do with a good clean, could write your name in the dust, maybe a lick of paint
There is a very relaxing feel to the hotel. The breakfast was very nice.
The location is very central
Last time we stayed in a twin room, it was much bigger. This time it was very pokey. There was a large group of lads there for the football who kept us up with noise til 4am. The staff seemed very annoyed the next morning but we didn't get an apology. Breakfast wasn't thrilling. The sausages were poor quality and we weren't asked what we wanted, just had bacon, sausage, an egg and beans put in front of us with white toast. I stay in hotels a great deal for work and sadly this hit the lower end of the spectrum.
Location was ok
Tiniest double bed ever, suitable for 6ft bloke with a size 6 partner! Bathroom was tiny barely 3ft wide, and location of toilet was ridiculous, question of whether I'd stay again...no
Room was pleasant - cleanish. Bathroom was small - but serviceable. Sandra was really lovely in the morning. Breakfast good.
Being woken up at 4am with a very noisy group of young people returning from night out!! Talking very loudly, swearing and even tried our door! Went on until after 5 am. Walls very thin - even heard the guy either next door or above going for a wee .!
Had a call to let me no about breakfast Sandra was really lovely made you feel welcome my room was cleaned was nice x
I didn't like the loo could have been bit more space and hot tap was lose x
Location, Walking distance to Train station and town centre. Nice full English. Ignore some of the negative comments about the rooms etc what do they expect with a tudor building not a lot they can do but what they have done is good. its the second time we have stayed here.
Could be at least an hour longer for breakfast but apart from that had a great stay.
Friendly staff, excellent value, good choice for an overnight stay in Colchester
The only thing I appreciated was the location. The price.
It was very noisy with people chatting/ laughing in the middle of the night outside. Not very clean : I found a hair in the middle of the bed !!!! And the toilet seat was not clean. Staff not very welcoming: I had to put my key card through a letterbox when I left, they didn't even bother to say goodbye.
Room was VERY small Breakfast as well cooked but more suited to a child Bed was one of the worst we have ever slept in - mattress springs were poking out and bed was wonky
Wi fi in room, breakfast ok.
mattress was terrible , worst we ever had. Stairs to get to the room very hazardous. Toilet and shower far too small , awkward to use, Room too hot or too cold as one couldn't control the temp.
Last minute booking for visiting my daughter in Uni and needed a room for 3. This appeared at such a good price I must admit I wasn't sure what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised at the friendliness of the hotel. Sandra cooked our breakfast in the morning (all included in price) with a smile and exactly how we wanted it. We will stay again!
We couldn't complain about anything. The weather was the let-down, it teemed down!
Lack of room to sit in bedroom ecept on bed
breakfast waitress was very friendly
room was cold radiator never worked dust everywhere ,bathroom was tiny.
The staff were most friendly and helpful
The place was not very clean and needed much upgrading
Location was centre of town. Nice riverside view. Delicious breakfast. Good for shops, bars and restaurants. Near to Colchester Zoo and not far from Flatford Mill.
It was VERY hot in the rooms with no fans or aircon available. No food available in bar which shuts early. A bit noisy in the morning when builders go off to work early.
Warm and comfortable. Friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast. Lovely old building. Excellent value for money.
The room we were in was a little noisy, so we couldn't have a window open.
