In this hotel it had been recently re-decorated and looked good, however clearly the air con units had been left untouched, and as it seems with most Holiday Inn's the air conditioning did not have a cooling function, it only worked as a big fan.
Mugs and spoons in room were left with coffee stains on from previous guests (this seems to be normal as well).
Mattress just sank in the middle.
I will not return unless desperate to this hotel

Spotlessly clean room with helpful and friendly staff. Very comfortable and spacious room.

Colchester Holiday Inn was difficult to find- a sign at the junction round the corner would be helpful...and I wasn't alone with this error. Otherwise- quick to get back into town or anywhere else.
The bottle bin was emptied at 6 1 morning and 6.30 the next, I didn't sleep again after that.
The rooms were brilliant except for dirty shower head, comfortable bed, extra sofa bed if I wanted it- I didn't so put it away. Adequate lighting- nice bright bedside light- my father usually takes a head torch to read at night as hotel lights are usually dim but these were fine.
Litter and weeds at the front around the car park made it look a bit scruffy but we were only using the hotel to sleep and not spend time so we were not that bothered.
