I booked this hotel with my boyfriend as we were going to Colchester zoo which is literally a 10 minute drive, if that. The hotel is also right near a big Sainsbury's which is handy. The pool and jacuzzi are nice and wasn't busy at all. Would definitely stay again ☺

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 April 2017

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 here in 2016. The room was okay and the meal was adequate, but the service was extremely slow and lacking in finesse. I had booked a 3 course DBB deal but was told that there were no DBB meals but we could order from the menu up to £18 each - not the price of a 3 course meal....

Stayed here on business trip and found it clean, comfortable and very friendly. Staff were professional and very helpful. Food was basic and seemed to be aimed at coach parties more than individual guests, but still edible, though the restaurant lacked atmosphere. I would happily stay here again if travelling on business.

Visited Colchester Holiday Inn and was greeted by reception very warmly. The room was spacious and clean with a functional bathroom. The room I think has recently been refurbished so that was a bonus. I would have given 5 circles but there was a water mark on the bed side table and the air conditioning control was held on with...

We only stayed one night but could not find fault with anything. We had an Executive Room which was very comfortable and quiet. There were two wedding receptions in the hotel but you would never have known. We had dinner in the restaurant and was very pleased with the food and the attentive service. Breakfast had plenty of choice of...

My first room which was as exec room 147 had been recently refurbished. It looked like something that had been done by 60 minute make over. The grout and sealant looked like someone had just used tooth paste and the paint job was a Friday afternoon job. My television want working properly so I was moved rooms. The second room...

We've been staying here for over 20 years, renting 20 or so room-nights a year. We're now in room 201 with the delightful view of a gable end some 6 feet away and some dead and discarded plants. The hotel has been relatively recently refurbished but despite the investment, the new shower is dirty and uncared for. Doors have been...

Stayed for one Saturday night, B&B (2 adults) in an executive room. We didn’t have a bad stay, but there were a number of niggling points that would probably get me looking for other properties when we next stay in the Colchester area. The main issue for me was the executive room itself, which to me looked like how a...
