Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Place Friendly staff and they try their best to make you welcome, good location and the restaurant is good too and very nice spa attached to the hotel which give it bit extra things to make you relax and very friendly for family as well. August 31, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by food a problem the only problem was food as when I stayed before was really very good but this time not so good I also invited people to have dinner and they were not happy as they have stayed there as well and loved it so food was a problem Mrs Rhodes . August 31, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable Room Overall I was very impressed with this hotel. The room and bed were very comfortable and the staff pleasant. The only downside was the restaurant was very short staffed on one of the mornings for breakfast. There were no clean tables and not much hot food available but I understand that they had been extremely busy. However, a table was cleaned when I managed to find someone to do this and the chef was amazing as he juggled cooking several requirements from guests so I award the staff for this but maybe management should look at providing assistance in these circumstances. I would definitely consider staying here again. August 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel, Staff excellent but Spent a week at this Hotel and the Staff and service were excellent. The rooms were fantastic and comfortable it was a great base for us to do everything on our itinerery. But the food and drinks were very expensive. Other than that I reccomend this hotel and would stay again. August 29, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nice clean hotel with good facilities Shame about the second night when a fellow guest ran riot through the corridor waking us up. Apart from that all as expected from a Holiday Inn August 28, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent staff, excellent value Staff are very welcoming and efficient. Rooms and en suite are very comfortable, clean and of a good size.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for Harwich departure I stayed here with my family before our holiday leaving from Harwich and it was an excellent decision. Met by very friendly reception staff, a glass of wine and free wifi (I'm a Priority Points member). The bedroom was very comfy, had a great night's sleep and the food was excellent! Would definitely stay here again! August 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT HOTEL WE VISIT COLCHESTER ON A REGULAR BASIS AND HAVE STAYED AT OTHER HOTELS IN THE AREA BUT WE FIND THE HOLIDAY INN COLCHESTER IS BY FAR THE BEST AND THE MOST CONVENIENT FOR WHERE WE NEED TO BE. NICE STAFF,CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE ROOMS, DECENT FOOD. August 25, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for business stays This was my second stay and once again I enjoyed it very much. It's easy to get to, ample parking, nice rooms and the food in the restaurant is always very good. Hopefully one day I'll make it to the leisure centre as well. August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good place to Stop A family event caused us to stay overnight at 'Holiday Inn Colchester'. The hotel choice being down to value, reviews and location. Also the pool was an added attraction as we had had a long day. We had a great stay and could not really fault the staff, facilities and service. Will book again when in the area. August 14, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Noisy room Windows that dont closer properly and banging communal doors do not make for a good nigths sleep. Was left dissapointed. August 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Holiday Inn near Colchester About 3 miles outside of Colchester this Holiday Inn surpasses any I have had occasion to stay at during 2014. Hard to put your finger on exactly what makes me rate it so highly but the staff have a lot to do with it. I think they are all committed to making the hotel shine with its guests and they succeed. Each one of the staff I encountered appeared happy in their work. Professional and customer focussed they are doing a great job. Recommended. August 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Staff helped make the stay a success Stayed at The Holiday Inn in conjunction with friends renewal of vows. we had a fantastic celebration which was helped along by all the front of house and associated staff. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them, considering the majority were I should say in their early twenties they all showed professionalism, also the majority of the staff were local to the area, Our thanks to all the staff August 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by First class staff but scanderlous wine prices Why does the management think it justified to charge a minimum 18 pounds for an ordinary run of the mill bottle of red wine which we all can purchase from our local supermarket for 5 pounds.To add insult to injury a 250 mil glass was 7.50 pence would you believe!!! .With food I can fully accept that I should pay for the chefs expertise as on both nights of our stay we paid approximately 12 pounds for a mouth watering tasty meal which I have no problem with.I mentioned the above to the restaurant management who appeared to accept the point being made.It was noticeable there was an absence of wine bottles on adjoining diners tables. Whilst the above wrankles it did not diminish the real plus in that all of the workforce from the front desk,bar and restaurant staff were exceptionally friendly,helpful and efficient;possibly the best staff I have encountered home or abroad August 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient for visiting Colchester Had a peaceful time at the Holiday Inn Colchester. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast can be a little on the pricey side if there are four of you as teenagers do not qualify for the kids eat free, however there are other outlets available across the A12. Very convenient for visiting colchester zoo, castle and Beth Chatto Garden. (by car) August 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent location and Breakfast An easy hotel to find just off the A12. Bus stop close by to take you into town. Reception staff excellent and breakfast great. August 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent staff The staff at this hotel were outstanding! They were all friendly and helpful and were never too busy to give you very attentive service. The room was very clean and comfortable and it was good to have a choice of pillows.The food was of good quality and there was ample choice both for dinner and breakfast. The chef was available at breakfast to cook anything not readily available and keep the hot food hot and fresh. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in the area. July 31, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Colchester Stay Good hotel & facilities, staff we're great. Would recommend this to friends & if in the area would stay again. July 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay Pleasantly surprised with facilities offered for the price paid. Room comfortable and well furnished.Windows easy to open !!Adequate storage. Ample tea/coffee etc. Bathroom fine although shower rather weak and leaking a little from pipe/shower head. Breakfast fine with good choices. Service for dinner in restaurant was rather slow but the food was excellent for the price with lots of choice. Easy parking and newspapers to order. Welcome on arrival was lovely and inspired me to sign at once for loyalty scheme. First impressions really do count !! Will definitely use this chain in the future - in fact booked whilst there for another 3 nights next month. July 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by leisure trip family in Colchester with no space to put up guests , so always stay at Holiday inn with other family members. always a popular place with us all . staff so helpful and friendly. July 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what we needed The room was comfortable and the bed nice and firm. Staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel accessible by road and Car parking was good. Air con was quiet and efficient brilliant in this hot spell. Breakfast was sufficient with a reasonably wide choice. Would definitely stay again. July 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Relaxed ambiance, quiet suroundings Large grassed areas around the Inn, although neat and well kept could be put to better use. Perhaps more seating for guests to use - evening strolls after dinner, waiting for Taxis, Family pickups, additional transport etc. Or just to enjoy the weather!! Although the main pickup takes place at the front of the Inn, the seating could prove invaluable for long stay guests who choose the grounds to relax in during the course of their stay. July 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location, comfortable beds with good service We selected this hotel for its' location for a touring base for the Essex coast line. It proved to be a Great location with good service, comfortable beds clean July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service The staff at this Holiday Inn are all excellent. I felt welcomed and comfortable from the moment I arrived. The only slight surprise were the bar costs which I thought were outrageous @ £6.75 for a medium sized glass of sauvignon blanc! At least it stopped me from the usual 2 or 3 glasses I might have had! That was the only fault in my short stay, other than that I found everything to be what I'd expect. The conference facilities were excellent, and the Conference Manager was friendly, professional and very helpful. July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Nothing to complain about at all- Well done Holiday Inn! From Receptionists to restaurant staff to cleaners, they were all pleasant, friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. In all our dealings with ALL staff they finished with the question, is there anything else I can help you with? We needed to have a 6.30 am breakfast to get to a graduation ceremony early and the buffet was well stocked, hot, varied and plentiful, service was quick and efficient. Our room was comfortable, clean and during a heatwave was airconditioned perfectly. We were able to sleep extremely well and wake up refreshed to enjoy our special occasion with our son who was also staying at the hotel. We booked our room on line and then made a second reservation for our son two weeks later and were please to find we had been given neighbouring rooms automatically. We would definitely stay here again and thoroughly recommend this hotel. July 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ideal location in Colchester Hotel chosen primarily for it's location near to Colchester Zoo, and the availability of a wheelchair accessible room, and with Rewards Club membership you now receive a great discount and free internet in the UK and this was a great boon to keeping the overall costs of our 2 night stay reasonable. The Staff in all areas were welcoming and helpful, a great breakfast with lots of choice, and we would certainly stay here again, of course nothing is perfect and our room was a bit warm for us, but overall a very good stay at a nice hotel with great staff.
