I stayed here on business in an executive room. These rooms have been improved with nice soft furnishings and modern showers. The dinner was good and breakfast offers a good choice for all tastes. The hotel is well situated next to the A12.

Throughout our time in the hotel, the staff were extremely helpful. They sorted out several mix-ups over room bookings for our family gathering. The restaurant staff were very attentive. The room was comfortable.

The staff were very friendly. They were all working very hard. The breakfast in the bar area was very busy at 9am and staff were pushed to clear and reset tables fast enough. All the food was very nice at both the birthday celebration and at breakfast.

We booked two rooms, one twin, one double; both were lovely and clean with everything you needed (except perhaps a safe?). The spa was gorgeous, the bar had an excellent vibee and the breakfast was excellent.

Stayed here for 1 night on a business trip. The hotel was modern and I believe had been refurbished in the last year. The staff were very welcoming and eager to help. We ate in the restaurant and as we each had £20 meal vouchers from our company we chose the set menu £20 for 3 courses. We couldn't fault...

I have stayed here a couple of times and every time the staff have been universally excellent. This time I would single out Laura (leisure suite) and Emma (restaurant) for exceptional customer service. The hotel is on the edge of town and just off the ring road. There is a large car park outside. Wifi was ok and breakfast was...

I have been using the Colchester branch for several months and the food in the restaurant has improved so much that I enjoy eating there especially on theme nights, the service was always very friendly and good. Heating repairs took ages and the entrance doors stay open over the coldest period.
