We had 2 rooms here, as we were at Colchester for our grandsons graduation, they did mix up the rooms, my daughter and her son having a double, and my self and husband a twin, but it was soon sorted out. Our key card only worked for one day at a time for some reason and so we had to keep having it renewed.The Hotel itself was immaculate with all new furnishings. The bedroom was lacking in storage, there were no drawers, a little hanging space and 2 small shelves, one up to high for little me. The bed was comfortable but a comforter would have been nice, there were hard and soft pillars, and a good sized flat screen TV.
Tea/coffee were the standard amounts.The bathroom was a good size with a lovely large shower cubicle, with shelves, and, as in most places a soap/shampoo dispenser, towels were large, some softer than others, hair-dryer was in the room There is a notice in the room to say complain if some thing is wrong before you go home, so when we were awakened at 6-30 am, with the night porter emptying bottles into the bottle bank, I did, it did not happen again.
Breakfast was the biggest let down, we went at 8-45 am, tables were not cleared most things were in short supply, cutlery, mugs, muesli, fruit salad, beans. The scrambled egg was not very good, and there were no Danish pastries, sometimes orange was watery and the coffee from the machine was indescribable either watery or no milk in it at all.
