We stayed here as a family and a number of friends. Excellent facilties with a warm and helpful welcome. The staff helped to arrange evening meal and breakfast as there was over a dozen of us they wanted to eat together.... Great stay with comfy clean rooms and modern facilties. Will stay there again next year...

We had to visit Colchester for two nights for a family funeral and picked the premier Inn for convenience however it turned out to be so much more than we expected. In a strange turn of events - some would say bad luck - our teenage daughter broke her ankle the morning we travelled. We were concerned about her managing...

Ideally situated A12 junction A120. Handy for Colchester, Ipswich, Harwich. Bar, restaurant and good breakfast. Comfortable bed, clean bathroom, good parking. What else do you need? I used this hotel as overnight stop before taking the day ferry from Harwich to Hoek van Holland.

Sceptical at first as appears very basic amenities but what they do provide is very good indeed. Comfy bed, large TV that works, snuggly towels, oodles of hot water and the best hotel breakfast I have had for a very very long time. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Recommended.

On a short touring break to East Anglia, I decided to start in Colchester. I regularly use Premier Inns because of their good value and uniformly good quality. The one on the Ipswich Road was up to their usual good standard. Modern decor, matched with space. It was spotless, which is what I would expect from Premier Inn. The restaurant...

To say the truth , I was hesitant at first, reason being I was given a room in the basement. Steps aside, room was impeccable, cleaners excellent and other personnel so very helpful in every way. Restaurant adjoining has excellent breakfast and working staff are ace! If I can suggest one thing it's to include more soup, pasta and pizza...
