Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Would definately stay here again
Myself and my husband were very pleased with our stay here. We were part of a quite a large wedding party and stayed over two evenings. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and staff very polite and helpful. There was plenty to choose from for breakfast too!!
I would definately recommend to friends and family!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Babsyboo Staff so courteous and helpful.
We had a "de luxe" room on the ground floor, it was bright light and very comfortable.
We had mineral water, chocolate and pair of slippers each, which came in very useful all provided free of charge.
The breakfast was very varied and plentiful the only fault I can say is that the scrambled egg was AWFUL. It was pale and runny and oozed liquid when placed on our breakfast plate. Not nice.
All in all our stay was very pleasant and we would definitely stay here again-steering very clear of the scrambled egg!

It is the people that makes Colchester South so good. Congratulations to Darren and the front team. The service is always swift, the choices are good and the breakfast set-up is very good.
I recommend it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wildcat13 Disappointment
After I booked two rooms for two nights - I received an offer from Holiday inn for two nights for the price of one which would have saved me a lot of money.
I called the hotel and booking dept but they could not change the booking.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RIW1978 comfortable but cold and noisy.
It was a cold day (snowing) but unfortunately the rooms were rather cold. The radiator was bearly warm when I stayed. The windows did not appear to be double glazed compared to other other hotels within the brand.
My key card failed on more than one occasion, afer the second visit to reception I was rather frustrated but it did get resolved quickly.
It was unfortunate that kids were allowed to run riot within the reception and down the corridors screaming at the tops of there voices whilst reception staff, clearly annoyed ignored them. I know they were part of the wedding taking place but still, not good.
Although an older hotel compared to others of similar age, the pressure of the water in the shower was poor. Im not sure why as I was onlt on the second floor and was using the shower at 7 am on a sunday morning ! I compare to the Birmingham Holiday inn and that has amazing water pressure on the 6 th floor !
On leaving the duty reception did ask me about my stay and wanted me to speak to the duty manager. I did not have time and just wanted to leave as had work commitments. Albeit a Sunday but still, not impressed and if you want a comfortable night try and avoid weekends.
