Overall ok but I wouldn't stay here again
The stay was overall ok but the noise that comes through the single glazed old windows is unreal.It was a bank holiday and I heard every word of the passers by until 4am.If customers want an undisrupted sleep then this is not the place to stay.

Excellent4.0 / 5
Well located and nice historic feel
The Hotel is a magnificent Tudor building in the centre of the town. The room was in a magnificent high ceiling half timber room. The bathroom was not so luxurious but was clean (the bath had been re-enamelled a while ago and some of it was starting to peel, and the tiles are twee 70s). The bed was comfortable but the springs are very close to being able to be felt. We had a nice stay and the staff were friendly and helpful. There is no lift access (we saw) and as everything starts one floor up with small staircases everywhere this is not for anyone in a wheelchair. Its very central on the high St opposite the town hall. We liked it but it would benefit from a bit of owner investment that could make it a first class hotel on every way.

Poor1.0 / 5
Need to try much harder
Very poor overall, only positive is the location. This is a shame because it is a lovely old building in a very good location so could have so much potential if they made an effort. When we arrived we weren't offered an help with our bags even though we had stairs to climb. Nothing worked in the room and it needs redecorating. The bed was comfortable but would not be suitable for anyone over 6 ft. The shower was pretty rubbish. When we arrived the heating was on full so it was incredibly hot in our room. We were out at a wedding in the afternoon so they promised to fix this whilst we were out as there is not thermostat on the radiators - I'm 6 months pregnant so overheating could be dangerous. When we returned this hasn't been done - eventually they turned the heating off centrally after having to ask a number of times at 12am. We couldn't have our window open because of the noise from the street - they really need to soundproof the rooms as it is right on the high street. They were also having a seance in a room we had to pass through to get to our room late at night - not only was this weird and could we been offensive to some people - but it meant the lights were off making it easy to trip. The hotel is supposed to be 3 star but it's more like 1-2 in its current state.

Great position but noisy
Should be one of the best hotels in Colchester but needs money spent on it. Rooms are noisy but excellent position and value for money
