Holiday Inn Express Colchester

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

wonderful staff and warm experience in the English countryside seven miles from the university during the Christmas break

We had two rooms at this wonderful little Holiday Inn Express and it was a wonderful experience! Every single employee who worked there helped us in every way possible. When we arrived a few hours before the official check-in time, they made our rooms available to us! When we needed directions, they printed them out for us. When we needed a replacement room key, they provided one. When we arrived after the normal time for dinner, a lovely young man fired up the oven and made us a couple of delicious pizzas! The hotel is a little out of the way, but everyone there made our stay so memorable!
