August Bank Holiday weekend we stayed at the Holiday Inn @ eight Ash Green we were down to visit my family who are located around Colchester, we chose this hotel as im a IHG Gold member and its location was ideal for our needs. Upon arrivial the location was great not too far from the A12 but just enough to be removed from the traffic noise, staff were friendly and took care of all my needs we selected to add breakfast to our stay as we knew we would be out the best part of the days we were there, what an excelent choice you had and the hot selection you only had to ask with just a few minuties wait. Overall the stay was excellent we took advantage of the indoor pool and fitness centre and although we were only meant to stay two nights (we were due to move on to Holiday Inn Express at Birchwood) I cancelled the other hotel and extended our stay at Eight Ash Green. Again I cannot praise the staff or the hotel enough, and although there for pleasure I did notice also their great conferencing facilities and would not hesitate to recommend the Hotel to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marg10 Can't Fault this hotel.
Stayed for three nights and was very impressed by quality of service in all areas including the Health Spa. Staff were very welcoming and friendly despite the fact that it must have been a stressful time for them as the sale of the hotel was being completed on the last morning of our stay.
The beds were very comfortable and the room was cleaned to a very high standard. I used the swimming pool on three occasions and was impressed by the well-kept changing rooms and the lovely soft white towels.
The hotel was full with a large wedding party for part of our stay but the standards of service and the quality of the breakfasts and evening meals remained constantly high.
Brilliant value for money. Would definitely return if I travel to the area again and will look for Holiday Inns when I travel elsewhere.

Stayed for two nights in August. Requested a quiet room on booking and the room was indeed quiet. Food was good at breakfast and dinner. It was especially good value as both our kids ate for free.
The hotel was in a good position. We visited Colchester Zoo, Frinton and Colchester Castle museum.
We used the pool, which we enjoyed, but I did think it looked a bit dirty in and around the pool and there a few mosaic tiles missing.
We would visit again if we could get a cheap rate. I would not pay the full price.

All staff were very welcoming and although some were obviously just starting training were very helpful. Breakfast was a little chaotic as too few staff and therefore had to find everything oneself. Could have done with better signs showing where drinks were or more staff to aid us older people.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sands G An excellent short stay hotel
We have used the Holiday Inn Colchester on numerous occasions and find it always delivers a clean, pleasant and comfortable stay with everything we need.
The Staff are always particularly friendly and helpful and, with the amenities the hotel offers and the ease of access, this remains out first choice for any visit to Colchester or the surrounding areas. The fact that there is also a pool, steam-room and Jacuzzi to relax in is an added bonus after a long drive.
If I have to offer any negatives I'd admit to being disappointed with the sirloin steak at dinner: it was not the finest cut of meat and it required significantly more effort to cut than I like. I'd therefore recommend beef in the form of the burger rather than the steak. But with that one small exception, an excellent stay and I am happy to recommend the hotel most highly.
The reason "Sleep Quality" was marked down in the review was simply because neither of us were particularly comfortable on the mattress. This is more likely due to being used to a "memory foam" mattress at home than a flaw with the hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chateau62 Excellent location, very helpful staff
tayed here for 3 nights over the Bank holiday weekend and was very impressed with the loacation, the friendly and very helpful staff, the leisure facilities and the dining experience. The children enjoyed the use of the pool on the days we were unable to get out when it rained. We were close to the zoo and the seaside and shopping facilities.
