          The hotel was conveniently situated for easy access to Colchester town center. The reception staff were friendly and very helpful. I enquired about the location of a restaurant in Colchester and the reception staff not only advised me of it's location, they printed from the internet various maps and other information that came in useful.

          The room we stayed in was adjacent to a very busy Railway track. The noise and vibrations from the passing trains prevented us from getting any reasonable amount of sleep. They carried on throughout the night, vastly increasing in frequency during the commuter period in the morning. My wife and I left the hotel the next morning very very tired people indeed.

          stuart and dining room staff very welcoming. breakfast excellent. room and bathroom clean.bed and pillow choice a nice feature.

          too many dots on the bathroom tiles! wine very overpriced silly because you would get more custom at sensible prices..... not all guests are on expenses! bath sheets on the small side. We had 9 very enjoyable night but still no loyalty cards after much questioning and prompting.

          As elderly, seasoned travellers we were impressed by this hotel. From the beginning, at reception we were offered orange juice and we were asked if, because of our age, we would like to transfer to a ground floor room. This was thoughtful and we appreciated this personal gesture. Our room was delightful, clean and well equipped - the bathroom spacious and well designed. We had drinks and bar snacks in the evening and again we had personal service from the barman who had spotted my box of pills and immediately asked if I would like a glass of water. Breakfast and the service were excellent and so was our checkout. We have never stayed at a Holiday Inn before and, if this hotel is typical, we would not hesitate in staying at another. The staff have been very well trained to high standards of service.

          Friendly staff, quiet, have duvets & decent showers, tea & coffee in the room, an iron & a hairdryer. All good items - you'd be surprised the hotels that don't.

          The bed was a bit small.

          The holiday inn was in a great location just off the a12... executive room had black out shutters which were excellent. Bar area very nice although definitely a business set up hotel.

          The walls are pretty thin we heard our neighbour very clearly arranging his day with the office. The windows could do with some updating as it sounded as tho they were open when they weren't. WiFi is stated as free..... yes if u sit un reception but if u want it in your room £6.13,per hour!!!! Movies were 8.50!!!!! Too expensive. And bathrooms could do with some modernism

          I got a fantastic deal on the Internet. Staff were brilliant. Food in the restaurant was lovely - they have a 24hr menu. Has a lovely pool, sun lounge area, small gym, spa and sauna. Room was spacious and well appointed.

          Room could have been cleaner - but I can be a bit fussy on cleanliness. I wouldn't say it was dirty but corners in cleaning i believe were being cut.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          We liked the room, very spacious, and air conditioning great. Tea & coffee facilities in the room are good. Excellent breakfast and with voucher cost £9 each which is very good, however without voucher apparently it costs £13 each, which I would not have paid as it is too expensive.

        • Older travelers

          You know what to expect from a Holiday Inn, this one is no exception. Very clean room, comfy bed, the food is very good and the staff are friendly and helpful.

          The lounge area was quite cold and was more suited for the business person rather than a relaxing place to sit for someone on a leisure trip.
