Booked an overnight stay as we wanted a quick overnight stay. Friendly welcome , clean room, felt room was a little on the small side - the bathroom was a very good size and recently renovated which was great. Only issue is there is no parking until 6.30pm. There is a small bar - however the night porter cannot serve you late drinks when hotel locks up for the night. Would have no hesitation in recommending if you need a quick over night stay.

A brief stay, just one night, but I found the North Hill Hotel to be a pleasant experience. In a very good location in the centre of town and with friendly and helpful staff. There is a pleasant covered courtyard for food and drink and the full English breakfast was excellent. Only downside was the noise from the street on a Saturday night but ear plugs were thoughtfully provided.

We stayed at Tge North Hill for one night. The photos online , don’t do it justice at all. Our room was a very good size , comfortable bed and a lovely big bathroom with a walk in shower. It overlooked a courtyard where you could have dinner and breakfast. If the weather isn’t quite warm enough , there are also some covered tables which are ideal for a chilly evening, all finished off very nicely with fairy lights which give it a lovely feel. The food in the evening was good , very tasty and arrived hot and not too long a wait. Breakfast was absolutely delicious, we had one full English and every item on the plate was freshly cooked and all hot and one eggs royal , which was cooked to perfection. All areas of the hotel were spotlessly clean. I would definitely go back if I needed to go to Colchester , or the surrounding area again. I would highly recommend it !

My first visit to the Green Room with the COVID-19 safety regulations all in place and observed. They have recently re-opened and we were treated to an excellent lunch, cooked to perfection. Good service with friendly faces. Facilities excellent and spotlessly clean. As this was a special occasion it could not have been better. I hope I have the pleasure of visiting The Green Room again.

From the moment I arrived at this relatively small hotel until I left the next day I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Upon arrival the young man on reception was most pleasant and efficient. I had booked a standard double room for the night (for single occupancy). Not the largest of rooms but it was spotlessly clean and well fitted out. So more than adequate for my needs. The separate ensuite had a walk in shower with the other usual facilities and high quality toiletries. I did not have diner in the hotel but the menu looked good, but my desire was for a pub meal with some real ales. The hotel does have a bar with a draught lager, bottles and a good selection of spirits as well as proper coffee. When I returned late evening I did enjoy a bottled beer and a coffee. In addition I had a good chat with the young man on reception before retiring for the evening. The bed was comfortable and although the room was at the front of the hotel overlooking the main road it was relatively quiet. Breakfast was first class. The main course was cooked to order with supporting items available from a buffet counter, although tea and coffee were served to your table. All in all a hotel that I would recommend.
