      Quite and comfortable.

      The hot breakfast food was cold. Other than that the remaining food was ogling a good standard.

      The clean and comfortable rooms and the modern design of the interior although it's a pity there is nowhere for a evening meal

      The room was clean and comfortable, the staff very friendly and the continental breakfast was plentiful. All this at a great price. Security was good as you need a key pass card to access corridors to rooms. We ere very impressed and will definately stay there again in the near future.

      Clean , good size rooms, good staff, very good value 4 money

      No bacon at breakfast - unforgivable

      Buses that go to Colchester town centre run every two hours so it may not be convenient if you plan to take a bus.

      Good place to stay - will do so again.

      Staff looking after breakfast on Thursday weren't particularly efficient, otherwise, very good.

      Upon arriving at the Holiday Inn the first person we saw was the receptionist who was friendly and helpful. We were told where to find our room which was an easy thing to do. The room was clean and tidy and was lovely to look at. There was plenty of room, a hanging rail for our trousers etc and a space where I put our other clothes although there were no draws. This was not an issue as we only stayed 2 nights but if staying longer it could be. The bathroom was very clean and the shower very nice and big. Of course the tea package is always welcome. We had breakfast on both days which was a surprise to have a cooked breakfast as we were only expecting a continental one and there was plenty to choose from. A very enjoyable few days. When we come back next year for a visit to our family this is the place we will be stopping.

      Everything was of a high quality and there was nothing to complain or dislike about the room, breakfast or staff.

      Very comfortable, clean tidy rooms, lovely comfortable bed, we felt very safe and secure here.

      The signage to the hotel needs more thought there are no signs on the road to tell you when you reach the hotel, where the hotel is, or how to actually get to it, we found it only by chance when we called onto the petrol station to see if they could help us

      The bar man and the breakfast

      I was really cold in my room, and the thermostat wouldn't allow me to change it from 18 degrees. Also, there were only two tea bags and milks which I thought was a bit tight.

      Excellent service by your staff would definitely recommend it to family and friends

      Very clean room. Pleasant staff. Away from the road so quiet. Great that breakfast was included in the price.

      Not so much 'not lik'e but would have preferred the cooked part of the breakfast to have included bacon, fried eggs, tomatoes and mushrooms. I can only assume that the choice of scrambled eggs, beans and sausages were easier to prepare for large numbers. Not a real briticism however since breakfast was included and the stay was definitely value for money.

      The staff were friendly and it seemed clean and modern.

      The mattress had no protector on it, it was too soft so I didn't sleep at all, the pillows were too hard, the Canadian receptionist was dismissive when I commented on this, stating it was standard hotel issue. I have had better mattresses and sleep at premier inn! The coffee cups in the room were dirty, I had to clean them before use. The breakfast the next day was very poor and the bar drinks were very expensive, £9 for two drinks!!

      Very nice modern rooms Large bathroom

      Breakfast was good, but diner options were limited and of poor quality
