    Colchester is a brilliant town to visit, you have the old and new part to walk round ranging from a good collection of shops and food outlets to browse and walking round the various churches, castle, monastery ruins and lovely parks. The town is within walking distance of both train stations, taxis are plenty also. Take a good pair of comfy walking attire for feet as you will be walking up and down gradients!! A great place to visit on the local bus is Manningtree where there is a antiques emporium to walk round with a great cafe in the high street for food. If visiting Colchester for the first time I recommend staying at least a minimum of 4 days as their is a lot to see of interest. Lots of charity shops too!! For families do visit Colchester Zoo which is a great day out, this can be reached by bus also if you do not drive.

    Great weekend destination.

    Great weekend destination. Loads of big and little shops, cafes, restaurants and craft ales bars. Great atmosphere in town. On top of this the most amazing castle and wobbly medieval houses and Roman walls something for everyone!! Town centre easy to walk round and explore and topped off with a fabulous meal at China Chef!

    Colchester is a gem.

    Colchester is a gem. Lovely architecture and sights, good cafes and pubs, shopping and eateries. It's not at all dog friendly, though, which is a big drawback if you ask me. Come on, Colchester, Britain loves its pets!

    Beautiful old building, we booked to stay here as we were in Colchester for a gig. The four poster bed room was really worth the price. Comfy bed, lovely hotel bar and friendly staff. My partner had a ghostly experience around 6am someone pulled the cover up over him to tuck him in but I was fast asleep. A friendly ghost though. Would definitely book and stay again. 20 min walk from town. This hotel is definitely gonna be a lovely memory with my partner 😌

    A lovely hotel overall. Every member of staff was friendly, happy, helpful and attentive. The bedroom was very comfortable with the addition of a balcony overlooking the view of the grounds. The bathroom was fitted to a high standard, lovely shower, nice and clean. The restaurant food was well presented and tasted lovely with care and attention to detail. A good location with a short drive to Colchester town to look around.

    Beautiful cottage with a unique character. The owner is very kind, friendly and accommodating. The room was charming and clean, and the bed had a lovely heated blanket (a first for me!:)). Had a great night's sleep. The breakfast was also delicious. The location is very close to the city center and Colchester Town train station. Had an absolutely wonderful time here.

    Very convenient location near centre of the city. Excellent breakfast with wide choice of foods. Quiet room. The hotel and rooms all very clean. Pleasant and friendly staff. Delighted that the hotel was open over Christmas to enable us to be with family who live in Colchester. Thank you to the people who were working over Christmas.

    A beautiful, comfortable and quiet hotel in a fantastic location. Tried the food this time and it was incredible. Reasonably priced for Room Service. The Junior Suites are incredible with a huge bathroom covered in marble down a small flight of stairs. I have already booked again for future. This is now my go-to hotel for Colchester.

    Friendly personnel. The hotel has a very good restaurant (also used for breakfast). Beds were good; clean room. Parking on public road is possible in front of the hotel if there is space (free of charge from 6pm-8am). Location is good to explore Colchester.
