“Great stay- Thanks”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Couldn't ask for a better place to stay, clean, warm, comfortable friendly and a cracking breakfast. Rod goes above and beyond to make your stay perfect. Great location and the abbey pub is very handy. Would definately recommend and will be back

Room Tip: room 1 is so comfortable didn't want to get out of the bed

If I was to open a B and B, Greenview house is the place I would copy, It close to just about everywhere, (Garrison 10mins) (Town 5mins walk). The rooms are bright, airy, good size and most important clean. The owner Rod couldnt do enough to make our stay as great as it could be, (Helped by Buddy) the most laid back dog ive met..lol.
We got up a little late on the first day (The pub is only 30m away) but a well presented, freshly made breakfast was soon in front of us, and a hangover cure good enough to sort even the hardest of the night before's.
Thankyou for an great stay, will be back soon im sure.

Room Tip: Any one past the front door......

Thanks again Rod for another great stay for our reunion as usual you just could not do enough for all of us.Giving us all a lift to the Garrison due to the rain and supplying hangover cures in the morning along with your amazing breakfast with that awesome Scottish square sausage. We all cant wait for the next one in March.

When we arrived it was pouring with rain and the owner (Rod) was in the pub - only found this out after we had wandered around Colchester for 45 minutes in the rain as no answer at the door, although could hear a dog barking. We had said what time we were going to arrive, between 4-5 and we arrived at 4.30. OK, maybe just a bad start. When we finally came back he saw us hanging around outside from the pub down the road (why didn't he put a note on the door?) and seemed OK but I was pretty tired by now.

Anyway, the owner showed us upstairs to our room with a washbasin. My heart sank as we were going up the stairs to the rooms; this place is pretty depressing and well needs a makeover. The dog was cute (I love dogs thankfully) but kept headbutting the door all evening or barking at the room door as he was lonely and when I went to get something from my car he was sitting on a placemat on the breakfast table which was laid out for breakfast. Obv. didn't sit at this table for breakfast. Just wanted to leave by that point.

Other problems included a window that wouldn't stay open, a TV remote control that had flat batteries, a TV that hadn't been used in so long it needed to be re-tuned to digital and (by now I do realise I'm getting petty) a room that was so dreary and dark that the middle light had to be left on at all times as the side lights were rubbish. Oh also, no hairdryer.

4*? And also be classed as "excellent"? I'm not sure. However, to be positive, the bed was comfortable and Rod did seem nice enough although, in my opinion, not interested in the actual running of his b&b.

Room Tip: Based on my experience, avoid if I'm honest.

Stayed for one night last Saturday to visit our son who is based at the garrison, ideally situated 5 mins walk from town centre and 10 mins from the barracks. Warm, clean & cosy free parking and Rod will cook your breakfast (which was very good) at time of your choosing, there's also a nice little pub on the corner what more could you want! Rod was a great host he even invited our son to have breakfast with us on the Sunday morning would definitely recommend.
