I don't recognise the place from these reviews. The hotel I stayed at was quaint, charming, central and crucially for the centre of Colchester, has a decent sized car park. I seem to recall that there were some olde worlde rooms that lacked facilities and some modern, motel style rooms in an annexe so you pay your money and you... More

Only stay here if everywhere else is full the rooms are lost in a time warp although they are clean. The breakfast once it arrived wasn't worth the wait and despite being described as a full English it definatley wasn't . on a plus point the owner was friendly and I have stayed in worse

This is definitely the worst accommodation I have ever stayed in. The previous reviews about the cold are an understatement! I had to sleep in at least 4 layers of clothing and a thick jacket as the duvets on the beds are more like towels. The bed itself was so uncomfortable I would have had a better nights sleep on...

This could be such a gem of a B&B, but sadly it's just tired and lacklustre. It is located centrally in Colchester which is its one redeeming feature and it does have secure parking, although the shutters don't go up till 9am, so don't bank on an early start! The room I stayed in was a twin; very basic furnishings,... More

This is an older place (well, being a 15th-century building that's a bit of an understatement) a few minutes from both the centre of Colchester and the Colchester town railway station (note, this is a side-station, not the main Colchester station, so you need to switch trains at the main station). No doubt the sort of people who expect the... More
