Desperate need of restoration

A very tired neglected building, wall palate hanging off walls, stains on the carpets, showers are awful, noise from some fan all night, breakfast small but expensive and not great, oh, and they give you a 20% off food voucher... that can’t be used for breakfast... I could go on

Centre of town

Pros: It was centrally located.
Cons: Furniture needs to be replaced everything looks dirty and scuffed and a decent nightporter would better.
Location: Middle of Colchester
Hotel is very old and I have mobility issues which I hadn't mentioned. We were first shown to a room at the top of the hotel up narrow twisted stairs. We requested a room on a lower floor and were offered another room on the first floor which was much nicer anyway, we paid an extra £10 for that. When we went out we asked if we could bring someone back with us for drinks and was told yes. It when we came back with our son and his girlfriend we were told the bar was closed and the coffee machine was turned off. We said goodbye forum and went up to our room only to find that the TV was also turned off for the night!!! Breakfast was OK but we wouldn't stay again.
