Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Loobs Warm and welcoming with a great new menu
I have stayed here for the past three months during the week, and would not hesitate to book again. Pilates is on Monday night at 6pm for those that would enjoy this sort of thing and it's free for those staying in the hotel. The gym is open at 6.3am and staff are wonderful. Service can be a little hit and miss sometimes as occasionally short staffed. Other than this its far enough away from town yet close enough to get in should you wish to have a wonder around.
Thanks to all staff who helped during my stay :) ,especially David (asst Manager)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ocw. Excellent staff
I stay in Holiday Inn hotels 5 nights a week and this is by far the most comfortable. The young man on reception (who's name I tried so hard to remember, but ultimately didn't) was fantastic. Despite being a platinum member I hadn't been assigned an executive suite, this was rectified immediately. I was also quite early for checking in and he did his upmost to ensure I got a room within mere seconds. Once assigned a room I had an issue with my key which was also dealt with swiftly allowing me to carry on with my plans for the day. I really appreciated the effort he went to and I shall be staying here more often due to this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Accounting Pair Attractive Hotel in convenient and good location.
I stayed at the Hotel over Easter with my husband and we very much enjoyed the break. We had an Executive Room which was large and attractive, very clean and comfortable.
We enjoyed the excellent breakfast and dined in the Restaurant each night which had a good Menu and Specials Board.
The hotel staff were very helpful, friendly and efficient.
The hotel is set in attractive grounds and is well situated for visiting Colchester and the Castle, and also Colchester Zoo.
