We held a Centenary celebration dinner at the Rose & Crown on Saturday 10 November. The booking was expertly managed by Lisa Grantham, the service on the night was faultless and the food was stunning!

My partner and I had a lovely meal at "The Rose & Crown" Hotel. What a delightful old world building this is. A nice pleasant atmosphere and such friendly and helpful staff. The meal was excellent and excellent value. I hope to visit again soon.

Hi Anne M, Glad you enjoyed your break with us. There is a river walk up to town, it is a bit further but less steep and much prettier or the bus goes up the hill every 10/15 mins. Hope to welcome you back again...More

About
Description
"The oldest hotel in the oldest recorded town in England." You are assured a warm welcome at The Rose and Crown hotel, which dates back to the 14th century. It is a beautiful oak timber framed building situated More in the bustling, historic town of Colchester. Originally a 14th Century coaching inn lovingly restored over the years, the hotel is an ideal base for both the discerning business and leisure traveller. You can sit back and enjoy a glass of wine in front of a roaring fire in our Tudor bar or go for a lazy walk in the panoramic Constable Country. Located close to Colchester town centre and the A12. It is less than an hour drive from Stansted Airport and 40 minutes from the Port of Harwich. Central London is 45 minutes by train and the idyllic city of Cambridge is an hour drive away. Located 0.6 miles from Firstsite. Free car parking available at the hotel. The Best Western Rose & Crown have won the ‘Best Small Hotel Category’ in the Essex Tourism Awards 2011. Less
