Check in and check out were both friendly and efficient and staff provided good service throughout. Our room was lovely, spacious and quite charming. All the family were impressed with their breakfast at the evening meal. We would stay again when in Colchester.

The hotel is a lovely building and well located in the centre of the town. As it is very old there are many quirky features which add to the atmosphere. Unfortunately it is quite noisy, especially at the front. I would stay again as it is very convenient.

It was lovely to stay in such an old and historical place. Lots of squeaky floorboards. Our room was on the small side but nicely furnished and comfortable, however a lack of sockets - which I suppose can only be expected in such an old building. Evening meals were good, nice staff and overall a very comfortable place to stay.

We loved our stay and especially the old and creaky floors everywhere. Our room was large and well appointed. All the staff were friendly and approachable. There was a very good atmosphere in the bar and lounge, breakfast was delicious. There are many stairs which may be a problem for some people.

The hotel has a lovely atmosphere, it was very interesting to sit in the lounges watching the comings and goings as it was very busy, presumably Christmas shoppers, as we were. All the staff were so efficient and friendly. A good stay.
