Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cotty A brief stay
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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by annie 19 all the basics in place
Excellent basic facilities. Liked the large walk in shower. Bed comfortable, clean towels, good wifi connection, easy to work TV.
Would have eaten in the hotel had evening menu been more appealing. It was not cheap either. Breakfast OK, basic and a bit budget.
Liked the view across the fields at the back. very pleasant surroundings and a petrol station adjacent - useful.
Can hear the hum of the A12 in the front of the hotel and one night a guest had the television on until 3am.
In all for the price - fine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lancs 01 Good solid performance!
Only criticism is that the breakfast was a little limited, otherwise for a first stay in Holiday Inn very good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bobf1 Great staff
A very good hotel. Need to move the smoking area. The breakfast would benefit with more variety, suggest high quality porridge.
The staff are always very friendly and helpful.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lolly48 Low noise and basic but comfortable
This was not my best experince for cleanliness or friendliness /helpfulness of staff, but I did get a good nights sleep and felt the layout of the room really good.
Good points- Nice size and room layout.
Quiet for a good nights sleep
Good breakfast and long times to attend it.
Not so good points- Room not clean
Plates dirty....and dirty glass
Toilet had blood round it
Unclean bathroom floor and bedroom area.
Plastic cup under the dressing table. Was still there when I left
Staff unpleasant. Told on checking out- Yeah just dump key in there.....no pleasantries!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by carer 35-49 small beds
staff lovely, very small beds, poor breakfast area not suitable for people with limited mobility, and not replenish for an hour, there was no fruit when we come down at 9 am and they didn't put more out till just after 10 am, no separate smoking area we had to walk through everyone smoking to get in or out of hotel.
