Stayed for one night on a business trip. The hotel had a unique look to it and was intriguing. Staff were warm and welcoming. Room was perfect, extremely comfortable. Evening food was exceptional and reasonably priced, there was a lot to choose from. Breakfast was equally as nice. Very impressed and felt very spoilt while away from home.

What a fantastic experience staying at this hotel. Can not compliment the staff enough for their polite friendly manner. We were upgraded to a beautiful room for our anniversary which was very kind. The food is utterly amazing as well. Can not fault anything about this hotel, and from a very fussy female this is highly unusual for me!!

My wife and I have stayed here on many occasions, usually 2 to 3 times a year. Over the years we have tried a number of hotels in Colchester but we think this is by far and away the best. We always request a room in the Chambers when we stay; a little bit more expensive but definitely worth the...

A calm and friendly hotel. Rooms are cozy and provide what you will need for a comfortable stay. Very clean ensuite, great water pressure in the shower; toiletries. Well located for access to the town which is within 5 minutes walk. Big loading bay outside the hotel to allow you to drop your bags. There is a NCP car park...

Visited this place several time over the last month. Not too sure what has happened but the quality of the food has not been great. Use to love coming here! I visited on a Friday and somewhere like this should be fairly busy. Only a few tables were occupied. The food was ok but not to their usual standard. The...

Hi, Sorry to hear that your visit wasn't up to the usual standard, there has been no change in management so that's not the reason. I would love you to give us another try and let us make up for our failings that night! I can be contacted on rob@askacumen.com if you get a chance to let me know a...

we got a room for 3 people - one king bed and one double sofa bed, room was huge, bathroom very good and shower nice and hot. if you have breakfast make sure you check if it is included. Local to everything and make sure you get the parking card that reduces the 24hr rate to £5 from reception.

We were only in the North Hill for about 14 hours, but we were made very welcome by all the staff and enjoyed our short stay. As mentioned elsewhere, there are a LOT of stairs, but that didn't concern us at all. Special mention for the breakfast, which was cooked to order and excellent. Happy to recommend the North Hill...

Stayed in Room 1, which is adjacent to staircase, but I'm not sure that explains it. Date of stay 13 March, what on earth was going on until past 4.00am? Furniture being dragged around, loud conversation seemed to come from floor above. Was there some kind of night time maintenance taking place? Excellent breakfast to be positive

Hi, Sorry to hear this. There was no maintenance so can't work out what the noise was! The night porter said there was nothing that he heard. Let me know if you are in the area again and I'll make up for it with an upgraded room! Many thanks Rob

I was visiting Colchester for a half marathon and needed somewhere central to stay. Stayed in a single room which was on the small side but perfectly formed - very clean - nice ensuite as well. It ticked all the boxes. I must give Emma a very special mention - she is an amazing team member - so helpful and...
