About the hotel
Situated just 10 minutes from Colchester centre Wivenhoe House Hotel, is an inspirational country house hotel which fuses contemporary and traditional influences offering luxurious accommodation, brasserie dining and free Wi-Fi and parking.

Originally built in the 18th Century, and once painted by Constable, the house has since been lovingly restored and renovated whilst still retaining its genteel grace and historical allure.

Very disappointed with breakfast for the cost!
Breakfast was the only disappointment We should have been asked if we wanted more tea and coffee When the toast rack is taken away you should be asked if you need more toast we didn't but expected to be asked.
The eggs were over cooked to the point that they looked like they had been grilled to warm up , should never have been served like that but we had waited some time . Other breakfasts looked different to our so don't know why we were served what we were .
A different young lady asked at the outset if everything was ok but we didn't have time to say no and wait for a new breakfast
The Portico Suite was sweet!
We booked the Portico suite for our wedding night, fantastic room with some really sweet touches to make the stay extra special.
A shame we weren't able to stay for longer.
