We stayed for our daughter's graduation ceremony and the hotel coped well with various changes we had to make to room and tea bookings. They were delightful and helpful throughout. it is set in the beautiful lakeside campus and was very pretty.
The Hotel was well signposted and so was easy to find. I was made to feel welcome and was processed at Reception cheerfully and swiftly. The breakfasts and the one Bar meal I had were entirely satisfactory and the service all i could have wished for. The option of the Swimming Pool was attractive though in the end I was too tired to use it as it happened.
We were a group of three and stayed one night while visiting relations in Colchester. The hotel is a few miles north of Colchester on the A12 so a car is essential. The hotel is modern and well appointed and our family room was spacious enough for the three of us. There was a pleasant breakfast included in the price and altogether the hotel was excellent value. Note though that the hotel is only directly accessible from the southbound A12 and if coming from the south you need to leave the A12 and go via some small roads to access the hotel.

Picked pretty much at random for a birthday weekend, and it couldn't have been a better choice. We had a lovely room, properly dark at night, with a comfy bed, and decent shower. The staff were really friendly, there was a great roaring fire, some good beer, and the food was excellent. Plus the village had a good little second-hand bookshop and an interesting church which kept us amused on a lazy Saturday morning.
Colchester's claim to fame is that it is the oldest recorded Roman town in the British Isles. This city of 105,000 is 90 km northeast of London. Tourist attractions include the 11th-century Colchester Castle and the 19th-century Victorian Colchester Town Hall and the Jumbo Water Tower.
