Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doc290 Perfect!
Only stayed one night but the one night was excellent. Good check-in and service staff. Used the gym facilities and staff were very polite and informative. Comfortable night's sleep and good breakfast. What more could you ask. Will be back when in area again.

We chose the hotel as close to family, the reason for staying. This was our first visit but would definitely stay here again, the staff appeared helpful & attentive at all times
We did not eat in the restaurant but enjoyed the variety of the breakfast menu including the bar snacks - unfortunately we did not sample the Health Spa afterwards!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stuart01 Good Hotel
I stayed here whilst visiting Colchester on business, last week. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Rooms are clean with everything that you require. Hotel ambience very pleasing.
A couple of negatives though , WiFi is chargeable, which as a business user was disappointing. Also ask for a room away from the train line. Trains run every 5mins or so into London and as the line is electrified the drone of this just doesn't go away and after a while the noise gets on your nerves. This happened on my stay, but staff were extremely helpful and understanding so moved me, good times.
On the whole a very pleasant stay, would stay there in the future!

Nice room, lovely spa, beautiful grounds, very nice staff especially the man on reception. Food wasn't great but was compensated. Wish it had free wifi and cheaper breakfast though :)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cath61 Excellent but room far too hot and stuffy therefore did not sleep well.
This was a last minute booking due to unforeseen circumstances - reception staff very helpful - restaurant staff excellent - only issue was that the room was far too hot even after turning stat down therefore not a pleasant nights sleep.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by friendandme lovely staff
Had a lovely stay , staff were very friendly , Our wait time for food was long and unfortunatley order was incorrect , however staff were very quick to correct and food was enjoyable . As was sharing with a friend i found the sofa bed i slept on was very lumpy .
We enjoyed the chance to use the pool which was included with our stay .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KG88 Very good stay, would recommend
I could wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to anyone. We had to organise a last minute stay due to my grandmother being in hospital, the staff were very friendly, the hotel itself was very well kept, everything you needed was to hand and the price was extremely reasonable.
What sold this hotel to us was it's pool and gym. Both my boyfriend and I are very keen on keeping fit and are currently training for events in the coming months, this was the only hotel in the area we could find that had these facilities. Although the gym and pool was small there was everything you needed for a decent workout.
The only part that was slightly annoying was the payment process. I gave my card details online when I made the booking, and when I arrived at the hotel I had to *quote* 'confirm I had enough money in my account' by using their chip and pin machine to a sum of £100 #not even sure why as the room wasn't this much# and then I finally had to pay for the room on the last day, using the chip and pin machine again. Although they did only take the money on the last day I was slightly peeved that they hadn't taken the payment when I'd first entered my card information when making the booking...it all seemed a bit excessive and I wasn't the only one who was confused/annoyed by this process.
