Certificate of Excellence
This is a lodge and is on a room only basis but all rooms have a microwave and a mini fridge located close to the mainline railway station servicing London Liverpool Street and Colchester General Hospital and also very close to Western Homes football stadium. There is ample parking and free wifi unlimited. Not only are there plenty of excellent pubs, restaurants and take-aways walking distance from The Railway Sleeper Lodge. Historic Colchester town offers much more. There are numerous activities such as visting Colchester Castle, the superb Castle Park as well as many other landmark buildings you would expect to find in Britain's oldest recorded town.

We stayed in a ground floor suite, that comprised of two bedrooms and one shower room. Facilities were good and the rooms were clean and warm. We can not fault the accommodation, but the property is on a busy road, and care is needed getting...More
