Can´t complain about a thing. Room was top class with attention to detail and comfort, breakfast menu was mouth watering and staff very attentive. The same standards and comfort we´re used to at home.
Wifi wasn´t offered but we didn´t remember to ask either.
Very accommodating hosts. Excellent breakfast. Immaculate accommodations. Quiet location.
Squeaky shower door hinge! (I'm a perfectionist and had to find something to dislike.)
Angela and Alan are friendly and welcoming hosts with a beautiful and well appointed home. The tea and cake on arrival was lovely, and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was superb, and ordering it the night before meant that breakfast was a relaxing experience with everything cooked to order.
We found the Colchester ring road, and lack of signage a nightmare, and roadworks and a diversion didn't help locate Timbers easily. Although superbly comfortable we thought that it was a bit pricey for a b and b
It is hard to know where to start. We asked if we could arrive earlier than the 4pm check in which was no problem. Our room was very good, clean and everything matched, chairs,bed linen etc. Sherry in room and fruit and homemade shortbread where all a nice touch, extra tea bags as we mentioned my husband does like his tea (Thank-you). Breakfast was very good too, enjoyed the fresh fruit and locally produced jam. We went to see friends and i am sure we will stay there again when we visit them next. Thank-you Angela & Alan for a lovely stay.
Accommodation, atmosphere, cleanliness, excellent breakfast but most of all the warm welcome and personal touches by both Angela & Allan made this a great place to return to in the future.
Really friendly welcome,superb property,fantastic room with everything provided to make our stay a real pleasure.We would definitely use this B&B again and highly recommend it to everyone.Certainly lived up to the 9.6 rating.Thank you.
Well appointed accomodationin a quiet and secluded location. A warm welcome from the owners who were most attentive and helpful.Excellent breakfast.
Both Alan and Angela were excellent hosts, we felt so much at home. They are both interesting and interested. The accommodation was excellent in every way right down to the cold milk in the fridge to homemade shortbread in the room. We had an enormous terrific breakfast all cooked to order by Alan.
Could not find anything we didn't like!
really great bed and breakfast. Alan and Angela did everything to make us feel welcome in their beautiful home. Homemade shortbread and cake awaited us in our room on arrival (delicious!) Top restaurant recommendation, which Alan himself drove us to. Lovely and very generous breakfast. We couldn't find a single negative with this charming bed and breakfast. Thank you so much for making our stay so perfect. Much love from Chris and Hannah! :)
Tea and homemade cake in the garden on arrival. Hospitality tray included homemade shortbread. As well as a bottle of water there was also a small carafe of sherry and a couple of apples. Hosts very friendly and breakfast excellent.
i like it all alan and angela were very helpful and friendly and made you feel at home on arrival we were made a pot of tea and home made cake .
The owners where very attentive to our needs and to detail the welcome and atmosphere was fantastic I would certainly recommend to others and would return again if looking for accomofation in this area
Nothing top notch !
Excellent from start to leaving. Alan and Angela are amazing hosts.B&B Immaculately clean, lots of nice touches, comfortable and quiet what more can I say
Very friendly hosts . Made to feel very welcome when we arrived with tea and cake in there lovely garden . They have a beautiful home too . We would stay at Timbers again on a stop off to Harwich if we sail from there again .
Alan & Angela were fantastic hosts nothing was too much trouble, they were very friendly and welcoming my wife and I felt very relaxed, we will definitely stay again when in the area.
There was not anything to dislike !!!
Very friendly and helpful hosts. Breakfast was excellent.
From the moment we booked to the moment we left, we were very well looked after. The warm welcome when we arrived was lovely and care was taken with everything in our stay.
Spotless and very beautiful place. My only regret is that I could not stay more than 1 night in this lovely house. Hospitality was wonderful plus a delicious breakfast. Big thanks to the hosts.
Nothing in particular but would think twice before taking young children as everything was immaculate!
Everything about Timbers B&B was good and we will certainly go there again. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious. Quiet location. The garden is beautiful and guests are allowed to use the terrace. Breakfast was delicious and ample. Highly recommendable.
Angela and Alan are extremely welcoming. I have stayed at Timbers a number of times now for business. I like it so much that I now actively seek work in Colchester so that I can stay!
The hosts! They went far above and beyond the norm. The standard was better than anywhere else we have ever stayed. Their house is beautiful and very peaceful. Would definitely recommend.
The drive across Colchester. Thank goodness for Sat Nav. The double roundabouts there are a nightmare.
The best B&B we have ever stayed in,Very tastefully decorated ,very clean,great breakfast and the hosts were really welcoming, we will use again when we visit our Daughter and Son in law in the area
Great hosts. Great food. Great rooms . Comfortable and clean. Quiet and private. Bathrooms have everything supplied including best quality robes,and rubber ducky. The room itself not only had a comfortable bed with best quality linen but came complete with a variety of beverages including wine. On arrival we were greeted at the door by the very pleasant hosts Alan & Angela. After being shown to our room they said we could meet them in their spectacular garden for tea or coffee with cake. We will make a point of staying there again. Our friends in Canada will hear of this wonderful place.
Exactly what it says on the tin - luxury accommodation. Angela and Alan could not have been more helpful and the breakfast would not have been out of place in a top London hotel. A credit to the owners.
