We stayed for two nights at the Premier Inn (A12) in Colchester recently. The room was immaculate and had everything we needed. The price was reasonable. We stay here about 4 times a year and it is always very satisfactory.

Just as you would expect from premier inn, clean ,efficient staff and a good nights sleep .despite being located close to main road, noise was minimal and didn't disturb me. Useful having a restaurant attached too.

This Premier Inn really delivers on its promises. It's fresh and well appointed. No frills but clean, with everything you could need for a short stay. Comfortable bed, enough hanging space, good TV, air con... 10/10 for an extra mirror at standing height with lights (outside the bathroom so it doesn't get steamed up) plus a double socket and hairdryer...

This one is a pretty new hotel with self service check in. Hotel has a large car park but it does get full due to the restaurant. I didn't check in til about 8pm so plenty of room. Hotel was very clean & tidy. Staff were friendly & helpful.

Very nicely decorated, clean, cosy and feels like a high class hotel room. No weird smells, stains or anything even slightly dubious (I've stayed in a lot of Travelodges/Premier Inn's.!) Everything you need for a comfortable stay, however long you stay. We came from the Netherlands for a 2 night stay. The staff at the A12 branch are friendly, cheerful... More
