      The general style and friendliness of the hotel and staff was very good indeed. I would like to say that the receptionist staff member upon my arrival on 28.3.12 at about 4pm was particularly helpful in sorting out some directuions for me from the hotel to the business venue I had to attend. Very much appreciated.

      There was no hot water, heating so it was disappointing

      The relaxed attmosphere and the oldy feel with the wooden beams

    • Single

      Staff dealt with a few problems very well.

      Due to its location, noise is unavoidable. I would not want to be there Friday or Saturday night!

    • Group of friends

      It was central and a building with plenty of character due to the old building making everything less than vertical/horizontal. Convenient for central Colchester location requirement and room was clean and good value for money. It met my need for crash pad for a social in Colchester.

      There was no hot water when I tried to have a shower and I was allocated a room at the front of the hotel which was a little inconvenient hearing the clashing and banging from people in the street.

      Amazing building nice staff

      The bar and dining areas were reminiscent of the worst type of 1970s pub with sticky carpets. The shower in my room didn’t work and the water came out in a dribble. I was lucky though as 2 of my colleagues didn’t even have hot water.

      Conviniate place to stay after weddding receiption

      Room well worn , missing material and ripes in headboard spit ,broken bath panel lack of normal equipment E.g hairdryer and iron in room ?

      It was perfectly located to explore the Oldest Town in England

      When we arrived (10/8 @ kl.18.30) the staff were very friendly & helpfull. However, while the bedroom was clean, we found the bed too soft, and there were only 2 coffee sachets in the bowl! The bathroom was clean, but the bath & surround was dirty; there were no complimentary soaps, shampoo etc., and the next morning when we wanted to shower, the water was either too hot or too cold, When we went out at 08.00 the next morning, the receptionist was busy talking to her boyfriend, rather that take our key, she gestured where to place them, and kept on with her conversation.

      No heating to room.very cold through out our stay, informed reception,and was told nothing could be done to remedy problem .No hot water on demand,had to call down to reception to remedy problem and then had to wait a further 30 minutes for water to heat up.shower completely inadequate,was more like a trickle from a watering can. Room service served us luke warm tea in the morning. On the whole very very dissapointing. Will never book again or recommend to any one.

    • Group of friends
      5.0

      It was very central to all shopping pubs and nightclubs. The hotel is also a good historic building in keeping with historic Colchester.

      It is a shame that the rooms and hotel in general are quite run down. A good makeover with new furniture, including beds, and bathroom equipment would make the hotel a good 4* venue as the location and historic building is fantastic.

      Nice old and cosy hotel that gives you feeling as if you were taken 300 years ago.

      Thin walls and creaky floor, which is however explained by the age of the hotel

    • Older travelers

      Food and service were very good.

      Having to park some distance away in a council carpark at a cost of £6 pound for the night.

      It was our wedding night staff went out of there way to insure our evening was perfect

    • Older travelers

      To be honest, I didn't like it at all when I get in the hotel room, I checked in No 25, the duvet was absolutely disgusting, the previous customers left blood on the duvet. I will not choose it again!

    • Family with children
      8.0

      I took my daughter simply for a stay in a haunted hotel. The staff where more than friendly, couldnt do enough to help and make our stay enjoyable. (Thanks danielle). Loved the history of the place. Would go back again, and again, and again.
