Colchester Holiday Inn Express

By

October 14, 2017

platinumelite

This hotel is ideal for your visit to either Colchester or Ipswich. It is located just off the A12 north of Colchester. The rooms were nicely appointed however, they lacked drawers if you wanted to put things away and sufficient hooks in the bathroom to hang a towel. The beds were very comfortable. The internet was weak especially in the evening. The breakfast in the morning was excellent and offered a variety of items as well as a “GO TO” bag if you wanted to take something with you if you are in a hurry. This is a basic hotel with no pool or excerise room. If these are important to you, then choose the other Holiday Inn in Colchester, however, that hotel does not offer a complimentary breakfast.

All round a great night stay

Speedy check-in and out. Dinner menu, although limited, as this is an express, still had a good variety/choice of meals.
The only criticism is the wifi - it was a bit hit and miss, due to the number of guests staying and all wanting to access it at the same time.

Convenient hotel

By

September 30, 2017

The hotel was ok for one night adjacent to the A12 but no noticeable noise. Staff were friendly but staffing levels looked a bit under cooked. The breakfast area a little characterless and breakfast the usual HIE choice. Limited evening venue which is essential given the position of the hotel and a number of food choices were unavailable. Comfortable enough for one night on a business trip as position and pricing excellent

Just my usual overnight stop. The room was clean and warm with plenty of space.
Guest areas , bar and dinning are basic but adequate. Not suitable for a relaxing drink and chat with friends but fine for an overnight stop.
Staff are always very friendly, I have stopped here many times and never had a reason to complain.
Internet is very slow depending on your room but it's free so no complaints.

We visited with my granddaughters aged 5 and 18 months
The breakfast was not as enjoyable as on previous occasions
The scrambled egg was too salty, the sausages did not have a good flavour or texture.
There were no appropriate cereals for the children
