Simple room, nice people and good breakfasts... Small single room with en-suite, TV, kettle. Rooms are on ground floor in separate building. Good breakfasts, friendly management. Location is remote from towns - but road links are good. Some residents park their cars outside the rooms - so the noise can disturb you. Overall, I would have no problem ...

It's a few rooms on top of a small inn about 15-20 minutes from the historical centre of Colchester. The rooms are rather tiny but clean and everything necessary is included: tea and coffee making facilities, TV, bathroom and shower. The rooms, bed linen and towels were clean, so no complaints.
