We live locally but really enjoy coming here for afternoon tea. The lounge area was very peaceful and relaxing. The staff were welcoming and very attentive throughout the time we were here. A superb selection of sandwiches, scones, cakes & pastries. Would definitely recommend.

Like the majority of hotels, eating here in my opinion is pricey. However, Wivenhoe has no real alternatives, so you’re probably looking at a drive into Colchester, so You’re probably better off giving the hotel a go!£

All the dining areas are directly linked to or in the main old building, there’s a lovely breakfast room and lounge, and then there’s the modern brasserie downstairs attached to the back
