Brook Red Lion Hotel, Colchester
Ideally suited for Central Colchester and all its amenities. Very comfortable room with en-suite. Very good breakfast.

Very Good8.0
The Hotel is full of age and character and very well centrally located in the centre of Colchester with all amenities close to hand. The room was very comfortable and the Breakfast choice more than ample and filling. Will happily go back and stay again.

Needs a make over.
The hotel is very tired and run down and needs a good re-vamp. But if there trying to keep it as a creeper hunted hotel it’s fine. We didn’t hear or see anything spooky by the way.

Definately in need of a room referb
Do not book this hotel if you have mobility issues. Main part of hotel old but clean and characteristic however the rooms are tired and positively shabby. our room consisted of tired worn pine furniture patched with MDF. The chair was filthy and threadbare with holes in the arms showing dirty stuffing. The beds were clean and bathroom acceptable. Carpet was stained and had a faint damp smell. If it wasn't so convenient for town would definately have left.
