Wanted somewhere close to Colchester town centre and the historical sights. This was ideal. A 15 min walk took you there. Ideal when eating out. Plenty of restaurants to choose from. Traffic noise not an issue as rooms well insulated.

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed here just at the beginning of the heatwave. Thursday was cooler as it was cloudy around the East coast; Friday it starting getting hot and we were so pleased to have chosen a Premier Inn with air conditioning. We enjoyed our break and stayed at the Premier Inn in Cowdray Avenue for 4 nights. We also opted for a meal deal and glad we did as we could go back to the hotel and get ready leisurely and go down to dinner without having to look round for somewhere to eat, which at that time we most probably would have been required to book. We found the staff friendly and helpful, the restaurant staff and reception. Everything as one would expect from a Premier Inn. The only tiny niggles for me, being short, was the bed was too high and the bath too, but realise I am not "average". Close to the North railway station which is on the mainline. We went to Ipswich from there, only 20 minutes. Convenient for buses too. A good choice.

First time in a Premier and pleasantly surprised. A nicely spaced car park was a good start and the woman on the front desk was very welcoming and friendly. Effortless booking in and we also booked breakfast. The room was extremely clean with basic but solid features. A bath was an unexpected bonus on top of the shower. The curtains made the room impressively dark and on the whole it was also very quiet. The breakfast was freshly cooked and of decent quality and the slightly harassed waiter (other staff off sick) still managed to get back to offer a second go at the cooked option before we moved on to the continental buffet options. Checkout was also very straight forward. Overall, pleasantly surprised at how good the experience was and it's highly likely we'll be back for further trips to the area.

Really nice, professional competent staff. We had a nice clean room and were pleasantly surprised at the welcoming reception staff. Best Premier Inn I’ve stayed at and I’ve stayed at lots. Would recommend it if you need somewhere to stay in Colchester

We stayed here for a couple of nights and was clean and tidy with pleasant, friendly staff. Only reason it isn't a 5 star review is a couple of minor problems in the air conditioning not working properly and tv remote the same. Having said that would definitely stay again if I was in the area.
