On the evening we visited the restaurant was not very busy at maybe 6 or 7 tables and yet the kitchen failed to...

I stayed at this hotel for a wedding being held nearby. The reception staff were excellent and deserve commendation for being welcoming, helpful, friendly and efficient. The room was clean and comfortable but the décor looked like it hadn't been properly completed e.g. paintwork in the bathroom looked unfinished. Trying to take a shower during the day (getting ready for...

Really nice hotel, the room was amazing for the price (really modern and new!). The swimming pool was a bit cold, but the Jacuzzi was nice. Had a nice breakfast has well. We asked for a late check out and they gave us one more hour, so we we're satisfied. I definitely recommend this hotel.

Me and my partner stayed here recently for a night away. The room was very clean and the decor was new and fresh. It was almost as if we was the first ones to have stayed in the room since their 2016 refurbishment. The only complaint we made was the meals at the restaurant. The restaurant was empty and we...

Clair and Debbie on reception are amazing members of staff of the hotel.

I was looking for a hotel in / near Colchester with easy access out of town as I was attending a Christmas function in a rural pub nearby and the Holiday Inn was an ideal location, very easy to find, just off the dual carriageway but far enough not to hear any road noise. There's plenty of car parking although...

All the staff were very helpful throughout my stay. Sadly the hotel was really not very clean. I had to move the sofa to get the radiator to work in my room and there was lots of litter etc under the sofa. The plates at breakfast, lunch and dinner were also not clean.

Spent an evening here with friends for a drink and chat , found the bar area to be a bit grubby with sticky tables and chairs, the bar staff were a bit slow in serving and the language from some of the other clientele was rather offensive to say the least.
