The menu is poor and food was tasteless.
Bake potatoes were done in a micro wave and the roasted vegetables all were not seasoned.
The pasta was suppose to be with Basil and rocket was put on to it.
Service was slow and the restaurant was not busy.
I have eaten better food at a weatherspoon that cost half the price.
Breakfast was ok but we had no saucers to our cups.

Clean tidy hotel. Slept well with a very comfortable bed. However the shower over the bath was poor and could do with upgrading.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn, Colchester as we were taken my son - aged 2 - to Colchester Zoo. Due to the horrendous traffic on the M25 we did not get to use the facilities on offer – which is a shame but we next time we visit.
The purpose of the stay was that we were taken my 2 year old son to Colchester Zoo, as he wanted to see the elephants – (never seen one before in the flesh). Have to say the deputy manager on site during our visit – Darrell was excellent – made us feel welcomed from the moment we arrived.
Even helped us when we were charged twice by the restaurant - fantastic

The hotel was fully booked but obviously understaffed. The restaurant for breakfast our first morning was untidy with dirty plates and dishes covering most of the tables causing problems for a table to be found for us. The food available was good but there were certain shortages or had not been replaced. Also cups and plates were on tables in reception and also along corridors from room service waiting to be collected. The staff were always very helpful and tried to make our stay enjoyable. The overall feeling that a small number of staff were struggling to deal with all services. Our bathroom had been quickly cleaned as had the making of our beds. We had previously stayed at this hotel and all had been fine but this was not a pleasant stay.

Excellent value for money as kids stay and eat for free, free use of swimming pool and gym,close to clacton on sea,Colchester Zoo and Castle,unfortunately very much understaffed which is very noticeable at dinner.

The hotel is in a nice landscaped location next to the A12 and had plenty of parking space. The hotel in general is kept in a good state of maintenance but the sauna was out of action and I thought the pool area was looking a little tired. Although the staff behind the front desk were very friendly, other staff that we came in contact with were not, but maybe they were being stretched. The room had everything you need except a safe.
