“What more can one say?”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

Mrs Demetri made an excellent stay even better by providing chocolate cake for supper above and beyond providing clean accommodation, ample hot water and comfortable rooms at appropriate prices. Breakfast was excellent and in an environment which allowed either privacy or conversation, whichever was preferred.

If there is a criticism, it is that Marmite was unavailable at breakfast. In my view, that was a positive rather than negative. The bathroom mirror was pitched at an average height which made this above average tall guy have difficulty shaving but that's o k.

A stay at Four Seven's, quite apart from a good night's sleep, enables one to meet like minded people and make new friends. What more can one ask?

K.

Room Tip: Ours was fine.

Just returned from a one night stay at the Four Sevens and would highly recommend it! The couple who run it are sooooooo lovely, she even gave me and my boyfriend a huge piece of homemade Bakewell Pudding, (which when I told her I have a cafe in Bakewell she almost had a panic attack...but it was one of the best Bakewell Puds iv had!!) The rooms were so open, clean, spacious and the bed was so comfy. Oh and the breakfast was immense! Thank you so much xxx

I've stayed in Four Sevens for 2 nights in May/013 and it was absolutely great. I would totally stay there again and highly recommend to any1 else. The rooms are fairly cheap (55/night for single room, which is the size of a living room) spacious room with not a lot of furniture but u do have a hanger, mirror, big bed and some night stalls. Also sink and tea/coffee making facilities. The whole guest house was clean and neat. Breakfast including cereals and cooked English breakfast was really a treat. Good location, nice and quite, just 10-15minutes walk to city center.

Recently stayed at the Four Sevens and am very happy to recommend it. I would certainly stay there again. The room was large, clean, and very comfortable. Furnishings are modern, but the room was well equipped - everything I need (including plenty of pillows). Breakfast was very good. Location is perfect: a very quiet street but equally, very easy to get to the center of Colchester on foot. And the host is wonderful. Very highly recommended.

We arrived late in the evening after a long drive we were greeted and escorted to our room showed us to our room. We were on the top floor of the building in room 1 which is a double room with an en-suite bathroom, the room was clean, bright with a nice mattress, very modern indeed.

In the room is Kettle with tea making facilities, such as Milk, Sugar, Coffee etc. also there is a place to hang your coat and a small television, hand and medium sided bath towels

The only observations that i would have would be that there is no hair dryer in the room and the bath towels could be slightly larger. The pillows were very soft and comfortable, maybe another pillow each would of been beneficial.

We had a very good nights sleep, until dawn when the sun shone through the window and woke us both, maybe heavier blinds of the use of blackout curtain would be beneficial for east - south facing rooms.

The breakfast was well cooked and and we enjoyed our stay at the Four sevens apart from being tired due to being woke at dawn.

The four Sevens is a good, clean and pleasant, it is doubtful that we shall return due to the blinds issue.
