    Nothing

    I booked a room for two adults and one child via booking .com. For some reason the hotel Could not see the reservation for the child and as a consequence there was no extra bed in the room. I asked for extra blankets and duves but they did not supply them. I had to spend a night on the floor. Plus there was a wedding reception with very loud music till 11 at night. The price of the breakfast is ridicolus.

    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.

    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.

  • Couple

    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.

  • Group of friends

    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

    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.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

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

  • Couple
    8.2

    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.
