Let me start by saying this hotel is a great little hotel, clean and functional with friendly and very helpful staff. We stayed a Friday and Saturday evening in August when visiting Colchester for a friends wedding. I left my hotel booking late so my choices were limited. The North Hill Hotel could put us up but the Junior Suite I wanted was only available on the Friday night so I opted for this and a change of rooms on the Saturday night. My choice was limited! The Junior Suite was at the back of the hotel, quite spacious with good sitting area and a decent sized flat screen TV. Also a very spacious bathroom. A great night's sleep. And then the move to the Standard Double room at the front of the hotel for the Saturday night. A small room with little space to move around, tiny bathroom and tiny flat screen tv. But it was the noise most of the night that kept us awake. Other reviewers have mentioned this and our experience tells me that if you can't get a back room at the weekend then re-consider your opitions. The front of the hotel is on North Hill. For an hour or so upto 2am a car alarm kept me awake. From around 2am to 4am it was the revellers leaving a nearby wine bar. And they are noisy. And you can't escape the noise. So I had a good sleep on Friday night and little on the Saturday night. A hotel of two halves! On a positive note the breakfast and food is great, nice little bar area and great staff. There is no parking so the nearby NCP car park can be used for £5 regardless of length of time the car is in the car park.
