    Had read all the reviews on this hotel, so was very pleasantly surprised to find: The standard of the room was above average. Comfortable, clean with an excellent bathroom. Staff were very friendly and the bar area was comfortable and inviting. Breakfast was excellent.

    We experienced nothing detrimental to our stay. However it would be fair to say that if there was a function there and you were early to bed, there might be some noise from the car park area, where there is the smoking area.

  • Couple

    We liked the location (close to the ferry) and the fact you could have a drink in the hotel itself.

    Our room was next to a very busy road, with a wooden door opening to that road (lots of trafic even during the night). Room was very noisy, could hear everything from the rooms next door. The bathroom was big enough except for the sink. It was made for gnomes, small and low to the floor. They don't check rooms properly, coz 50% of the lights weren't working, due to broken or absent lightbulbs. Didn't find the room very clean.

    I booked the hotel at the last minute, when we were visiting Colchester for a friend's wedding. The staff were very friendly and organised and our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel has a lovely "old" feel with its timber beams and old wooden firniture but remains modern and clean at the same time. It has a nice hotel bar area which serves absolutely delicious sandwiches - and from the look of other people's lunches, delicious traditional meals too. We only stayed one night but I would definitely stay again. It is excellent value for money, functional and has a really nice character. It is also located very close to Colchester castle and the town. Ideal for short stays.

    The staff were friendly, service was good and there was a good choice of food for breakfast. The bar provided comfortable and welcoming surroundings for an informal evening meal.

    In the bedroom there was a missing lampshade and a missing lightbulb.

  • Couple
    8.2

    Everything was lovely, room clean and comfortable and a good size. Close enough to town centre without being in the thick of things. Friendly, professional staff. Good bar serving good food. Lovely restaurant too (although we couldn't eat there as it was booked up with christmas parties).

    The room was clean and comfortable.

    The breakfast was not the usual standar I expect from a hotel. It was too expensive for the breakfast and service offered.

    Room was nicely appointed and the bathroom was clean and well designed. Reception staff were efficient and helpful.

  • Couple

    The atmosphere of the hotel is very nice with a rustic & antique décor in exterior & interior. The receptionist is very kind and works very well.

    On the day we stayed, there were a marriage(?) party at the hotel. Our rooms located just upstairs on the party hall was very noisy with dance music until midnight. Following our complain, the receptionist arranged for us immediately to change the room which is less noisy and larger. Her reaction is professional, but normally the hotel should not be open the rooms just on the party hall if they have a party.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    Location was convenient for where we needed to be in Colchester. Room was perfectly adequate, and was set up for use by a disabled person (not needed by us, but good that they have such a facility).

    Initial access to the room was bizarre, involving going up stairs, along loads of corridors, then down again to the ground floor, where we found there was in fact a door permitting access directly to the outside (for disabled people). We had to carry our luggage all that way, only to find we could have gone straight in from the car park. I was not impressed that the receptionist did not suggest that we did so. Obviously not all rooms have this 'issue'. The location of the hotel, on a junction of two busy roads, means it is never going to be quiet and peaceful, but our room was particularly noisy (it was a hot night and we had to keep a window open).

  • Group of friends
    3.8

    room 125 on the street very noisy near a big litter (thank you for smell) man in the reception very unwelcoming I don't sleep for the night for noise of traffic : no double-window, no reinforced door ...

  • Couple
    5.4

    - The old building is quaint where the restaurant & function room locate.

    - The new extension where our hotel room was located. - There was a puddle on the bathroom floor when we entered our room. - The room was a bit cold & noisy (can hear traffic from road).
