We stayed here for one night prior to attending a family event in Colchester. The hotel is aboutt 10 - 15 minutes by car from Colchester but easily accessible from the A12. We had a good-sized room and a nice bathroom. The bed was comfortable and we had a small table and chairs to sit at. The public areas were...

After being a member of the Health Club for over 2 years I have been hit with a parking fine for £100! Apparently the system at the reception did not note my registration number. I diligently entered my number every time I used the Health Club and although I have pleaded with management to fight my case with their parking...

The staff at this hotel are very very friendly. Nothing seems too much for them. The quality of the restaurant food is excellent. You can also mix bar and restaurant menus. Breakfast is the usual selection and is quite toothsome. The restaurant is quite reasonably priced. The hotel is very clean ( apart from a few hard to reach places...

We spent 1 night here with 2 days in a conference room. Good access to and from the A12. Gym available. Friendly staff in the bar and restaurant. Good quality and variety of food in the generous lunch buffet left us stuffed! Conference room was well laid out and a large sliding glass door kept things airy. Drinks were expensive....

Popped in late one evening in early Feb for a coffee with a family member. Coffee was nice, the bar staff were friendly and I even left a tip. We left after only 30 minutes... Almost 2 weeks later we receive a nasty "threatening" PARKING PENALTY DEMAND for £60 to be paid within 12 days, rising to £100 if we...

This hotel is generally of a high standard for food and rooms. Although some of the furnishings, wardrobes etc. could do with a makeover! Our wardrobe had one door busted. There was free Wi-fi, but it was very limited and flaky. I certainly would not have paid for it!! The service provided by the staff was excellent. The amenities were...

I stayed at the Marks Tey Best Western hotel for 5 nights over the Christmas break. I have done this for probably 6 years running with no problems, although you do get a feeling that the wedding parties and special guests get priority. On the 27th my mother passed away in a hospice in Windsor. We were due to check...

Visited the hotel for relaxing spa night using the health care facilities. Only to be issued a parking fine, very unhelpful staff with regards to appealing the fine. The only help received was a small sentence which they copied and pasted to every customer that has complained. I'm looking forward to see another copied and pasted status with regards to...
