“Great stay”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

I spent a night here with my girlfriend last weekend.
The hotel is clean and comfortable and fairly standard. One big plus was the very powerful shower. It was also nice that the bathroom didn't steam up when we used it.
The staff were all fantastic from the moment we checked. They let us leave our luggage before check in and after check out and they were always smiling and making sure we were enjoying our stay. The breakfast in the adjacent Beefeater was fantastic value for money too and the location is ideal, about ten minutes from the town centre/castle and no more than a few minutes to the railway station.
I would definitely stay again.

We stayed here for one night and really enjoyed it. The room was large, clean and comfortable and shower was powerful and hot! Had a great nights sleep and wasn't disturbed at all. The staff were all really friendly, polite and attentive and stored our luggage on both Saturday and Sunday as we were spending the days in Clacton and Colchester. We had breakfast included in our stay and it was delicious, plentiful and again service was really good. An excellent value for money stay, topped off with great staff!

Colchester Central Premier Inn consistently offers really helpful and friendly staff who sort any issue to the best of their ability, they really are the best! Handy for Colchester town centre. One issue is traffic noise, best sorted by calling ahead and requesting a room at the back. The fans in the bedroom are noisy too so turn them off for a good nights sleep. Continental breakfast ok. Would that one could book this Premier Inn for the £29 offer but this is rarely available sadly.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back on 1st floor are quieter

What you want from a hotel such as this is a good nights sleep and comfortable room. This was my first stay and I was very impressed by how good the rooms were, how friendly the staff were and how easy the whole stay was.

The rooms were modern, bed comfy, clean and spacious. The TV was great, wifi free for 30 minutes, kettle with tea and coffee as well as a hair dryer for the ladies.

The Bathroom had a very good shower and was clean, spacious and simple. Air con was all good.

The Staff were very friendly and we had a foreign chap (short dark hair, sorry I didn't catch your name) who couldn't have been nicer.

I am the first to complain or notice things that are not done correctly and this hotel was flawless.

I am planning to stay again and look forward to returning. I was expecting a standard travel lodge style room and was pleasantly surprised to find something a lot better for the price that was paid!!

A friendly and welcoming receiptionist, the room was clean, warm, with everything we wanted. Despite being near a couple of main roads i slept well in a comfortable bed. There was free parking, with a Beefeater next door, making it a great location. Only 10 minutes walk to the town, and easy distance to the castle (worth a visit).Shower was hot and powerful.
