Great location - shame about the bed !
Stayed to be close to wedding venue.
Usual good location - clean tidy rooms -friendly & helpful staff. All let down by probably the most uncomfortable mattress ever !!. = little sleep for both wife & myself - no support & dipped in middle. Do not stay here if you require sleep .
This is a great hotel just off the A12 near Colchester.
Great staff welcome, a very clean hotel the room was clean and tidy and a good size. Bar meal was well cooked with friendly staff and good service. Breakfast was a good choice to cater for all needs.
A few more signs in and out of the hotel would be good.
