A room for a single night for 2 adults and 2 children including unlimited breakfast For under £65. Simply awesome value. Located conveniently on the A12 and suited for attractions like Colchester Zoo or East Anglia Railway Museum.

Clean tidy hotel, nice welcome at reception. We stayed in a family room, fresh linen and towels daily, free cot provided. Only downside was no fridge in the room, that would have made a difference to us.

Excellent value for money, rooms are always clean and very comfortable The onsite restaurant is very good and the food is very good. The staff are always very pleasant and helpful. Location is very close to all the amenities though close to the road we were never disturbed by the road noise.

Check-in was fast and easy and the room was clean upon arrival. The hotel was fine for what was required, although the bar/restaurant staff could smile every now and then as well as look a bit more enthusiastic, though this may have been out of their control as it was very under staffed for a Friday and Saturday night it...

I stayed here as a last minute stay with my two dogs it was late at night, reception staff were extremely helpful and friendly, place is spotless cannot fault the room or the staff, I was on my own but was made to feel very welcome and even the dogs had a relaxing stay.

Thank Maura C
