The hotel is easy to find and located near the town centre. Our room was clean and tidy and bed was great. The reception staff where very helpful and nice. The restaurant was lovely and the food was even nicer, the waitresses where both lovely, especially Emma who made us feel so welcome. Overall a great stay.

Most of time spent in IHG hotels is at the HI in Plymouth, Devon. At present a refurbishment is taking place there and it looks as though they are using the same contractors that recently refurbished your hotel. In both cases quite a number of mistakes have been made.

Booked this as a little getaway to use the spa facilities and clock out from the world a little bit. The hotel is easy to find, we had no problem at all with finding a parking space, and the staff were very welcoming and attentive. The room itself was modern, clean and very comfortable. We were also on the ground...

Stayed over one night whilst visiting friends. Didn't use any of the hotel amenities as ate out on the night. Very friendly & efficient reception staff. Requested a quiet room which is what we were given & had a peaceful nights sleep. Will stay again when back in Colchester.
