The staff at front desk were lovely! Friendly, welcoming and chatty. Room was usual premier inn standard. Although on a busy road our room was quiet and had a decent night sleep. Breakfast was good.

My daughter and I had a fabulous time here. Very friendly staff, excellent food in the beefeater restaurant next door. Very comfy beds. Very close to town centre and castle. Everything within walking distance although a bit of a hill to climb

They guarantee a great night's sleep and that's what we got. A lovely, albeit standard room and a lovely comfy bed. The staff were great. They even carried my case up to the room as Cowdray Avenue does not have a lift. It is in an excellent location for getting about and for ease of access to the town. The...

Clean and comfortable room. Good, efficient staff. Overall good stay. Would recommend this premier inn and the restaurant next to it. Ideal base to visit the castle and town. The zoo is close by too. Have told friends and family about it.

I booked here owing to its convenient location, with the expectation of it being to the usual high standard of the Premier Inn brand. Have to admit to being a little disappointed. The room was very small, toiletries cheap and the whole place was decidedly shabby. For dinner and breakfast you had to go outside and next door to the...

We were made to feel welcome right from registration. The staff could not have been more helpful. The room was clean, warm and comfortable. The Meal Deal was well worth the money, especially if you have a large appetite. The food at the Beefeater next door was very good. We would stay again.

We stayed on Christmas evening at Cowdray Ave Premier Inn Colchester after visiting relatives for the day. The hotel staff were very welcoming and could not do enough for us. The room was a good size and very clean, the bed was extremely comfortable as were the pillows. We would use this hotel again it was very convenient for us.

Great location, close to the town centre but not in it and all the associated noise at night CCTV car parking adding to your vehicles security. Building rather cold, heating in the rooms, take a long time to heat up as they are ceiling mounted, so they heat from the top down rather than heat up, which is quicker and...

Traffic a little noisey could do with new tripple glazed windows. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The receptionist Matthew was a credit to Premiere inn and took time to ask about our journey and where we had journeyed from.
