Booked a birthday break for my other half, which turned into a disaster (his fault !!!), anyway, could not fault the hotel at all. Check in was very smooth, all staff were polite, friendly and courteous, nothing was too much trouble. Room was nice, with usual tea/coffee making facilities, large, flat screen TV, comfy bed and generally pleasant. The main reason for booking was the fact the hotel had gym/pool/sauna etc, which I made use of, despite being there alone. Breakfast was included, which was lovely, plenty of choice, and again, polite, courteous staff serving. You will need a car to get around, although Colchester Town Centre was about 4 miles away, and Colchester Zoo even nearer. There is a large retail park about 2-3 miles away, which houses a good selection of shops, and a large Sainsburys. Highly recommended, and if I do get back with my ex, would love to visit again.
