We have spent many short breaks in other motels, but this one came out tops.

It was subtly smarter and cleaner and we will definitely be back. More storage space would be useful and why only one chair when it is a room booked for two.

Holiday Inn Express COLCHESTER

We asked for a quiet room and this had been noted by hotel and our room was at back of property away from the road.

It was spacious. It didn't smell although the bathroom air vent allowed in the smell of someone smoking elsewhere in Holiday Inn - That was horrid but dissipated quite quickly. We asked for a comfortable bed - We were disappointed that the bed was only 4'6" wide and it sagged a little in the middle. But we were tired and we did sleep. We asked for gluten free breakfast> Gluten free cornflakes and gluten free bread were both available. The only hot gluten free option was scrambled eggs. Inedible on the first morning due to too much salt. The staff were unable to cook any more but did their best by offering gluten free scotch pancakes. The eggs on second morning were lovely. The staff were helpful with minor issues. All in all a good place for a short stop over.
