Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel is ideally located for Colchester town centre but the room I stayed in (Rm 163) was in desperate need of updating and looked like it was from a period drama. On top of that the radiator paint was peeling and the copper piping in the corner was missing some of its lagging. The electric heated towel rail in the very outdated bathroom didn't work and the temperature adjustment was taped with duct tape. Although I paid for a double room, only 1 set of towels was made available.
