Set in the historic grounds of Wivenhoe Park, this 18th-century house is next to the University of Essex campus.

This was such a quiet relaxing facility. We enjoyed the food. My husband said the beef bourguignon was the best meal he had on our 8 day UK trip. The breakfast was excellent.

    Really interesting old part of town has lots of smaller shops selling all sorts of things you don't normally see elsewhere. Lots of historic buildings and plenty of good restaurants with bars to match including a micro brewery.

    Colchester is a vibrant town with a wealth of history.

    Colchester is a vibrant town with a wealth of history. If you are into history you should definitely visit the castle (and go on the tour up to the battlements and down to the vaults where you can see the basement of the temple of Claudius which was destroyed during Boudicca's uprising). There are a multitude of quite stunning timber framed buildings in the Dutch quarter and a lot to see pertaining to the Siege of Colchester (1648) during the Civil Wars (the Siege House is worth seeing and finding all of the 17th century musket ball holes inside and out of its fabric!) There's also the foundations of one of the earliest Christian churches (Roman!) to see, St. Botolph's Priory remains and the remains of St. John's Abbey gatehouse. There is also a number of medieval churches (including Holy Trinity which incorporates a lot of Roman tiles in its beautiful tower) and the massive "Jumbo" water tower. The Tourist Information can point you towards all of these things and provide you with a map. Oh yes there are lots of shops to see - both chain stores and little independent shops... if that's your thing!

    I liked the town and its history.

    I liked the town and its history. However, I found the prices in pubs to be excessive, regarding both food and drink. The portion I received in the George was very small, especially considering I'd paid twenty-four pounds for it. It consisted of a tiny piece of fish, three mussels, a little broccoli, and two very small pieces of potato. In the Castle, I paid eighteen ponds fifty for a pint, with pie and mash.The price of a pint in most pubs was what you might expect to pay in London.

    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.

    The room was giant and the general feel to the Hotel was amazing! The location was perfect. The only thing I would say is to give more indication on where the George parking is, as the area seems to be a one way system which doesn’t lead you to the high street using google maps but other than that this is defo a spot to hit!!!! We loved it that much we booked a night to stay at the sister hotel for another night (the George hotel).

    The hotel is located in the centre of Colchester and is convenient for touristy things as well as shops/restaurants/bars etc. The rooms are comfortable, clean and to a good standard. The check-in staff were friendly and everything worked smoothly with our booking. The food in the restaurant was first-class and very reasonably priced. I don't usually like restaurants in hotels, but this was excellent.

    Cosy, comfortable hotel with period features within walking distance of the historic centre Colchester. Well appointed rooms. All the staff were welcoming and provided very good levels of customer service. Bar open in the evening. The breakfast was delicious. Car park on site was a little tight in places, but there was always a space available. Would definitely visit again.
