Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nickless Good hotel but disappointing food.
Quite simply this very good hotel let itself down on my visit by the extremely poor quality of the food available at dinner and breakfast. Needs to greatly improve the quality of the output from the kitchen.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Danitsa Good service.
Overall, staff very friendly and professional. Nothing too much trouble for them.Only once did I complain about a stain on bedroom carpet and worn out mattress. I was given a discount on my bill for the next time of my stay. Difficult to find,when I first stayed .I think the Holiday Inn Express should be sign posted more on rout.OverallI will continue to use the Holiday Inn Express at Birechurch road Colchester.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dizzy02 Reasonable Short Stay
The room was great. We stayed with our two children of 3 and 6. We went to a party locally so didn't check in until 11pm.
The only two downsides were: -
1) Our Room was located at the entrance by the car park so we got woken up a couple of times when people went out for a cigarette at 3 in the morning and talked loudly. Perhaps put the family rooms with young children away from this area?
2) I'm not sure what happened at breakfast but there seemed to be too many people wanting food and not enough food. Maybe you had some staff missing - that's how it seemed.
I'd stay here again but would ask for a different room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by happytaff Great Hotel just eat somewhere else
Cant understand how they can get everything right apart from the food. It was good but massively overpriced and surely someone has told them that people don't like their chips in a metal bucket.

Staff were lovely. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Were welcomed and checked in quickly. We arrived early and were able to check in early in order to get ready for a wedding. No noise during the night. Easy access to Stansted airport. Easy to find hotel. Good rate. Lovely stay, thank you.
