Family visit

Pros: All the staff that we meet were really friendly and helpful. Facilities were very good.
Cons: Room was cold when we arrived but soon warmed up when heating was turned on.
Location: Colchester is an interesting town to visit and also has a zoo.
Stayed at this hotel on a family visit to Colchester visiting relatives. Booked last minute and secured bed and breakfast for £79 which represented excellent value for money over house rates. Conveniently situated off the motorway it was easy to find. The staff were pleasant, rooms were modern and large and there were facilities for swimming, gym and a restaurant to meet our needs. Would stay again.
