“ideal budget stopover”
Reviewed 9 February 2010

I was texted first class instructions to park & enter, as owners not there when I arrived. I had great problems locking the outside door, especially concerned asmine was groundfloor bedroom next to main road. Great breakfast choice & individual service

My stay at the Railway Sleeper was comfortable and enjoyable. Breakfast was excellent and service was equally good. I will definitely return and will recommend to friends visiting Colchester.

I often stay at The Railway Sleeper, and I have always found a warm welcome, a beautiful warm and clean room, and the food served is wonderful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Railway Sleeper to friends and acquaintances. You are never disappointed when you stay there.

Staying here was extremely enjoyable.
Stylish yet cosy, the atmosphere is really personal - you're treated like a guest in the truest sense. Little details like providing fair trade tea and coffee and having lots of information on what to do in the area also make it feel like they've thought carefully about how to make you feel really well catered for. Considering it's a smaller guest house, I was surprised that they have things like Wi-Fi and satelite tv. The breakfasts were superb, with lots of choices - my favourite was the full English which was cooked perfectly. I recommend this place as it's relaxed and comfortable, with all you need for a great stay in Colchester.

We Stayed at the RAILWAY SLEEPER for 2 nights....me and a few friends wanted to sample the nightlife Colchester! I must say the Railway Sleeper was a great find! Romms were spotless and had everything you could ask for. Camilla and Dominic made our stay most enjoyable and the breakfast was first class! Large cooked breakfast was just what the doctor ordered after a heavy night! We found the chiller really handy for our water and to keep the wine chilled! WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THE RAILWAY SLEEPER ...VERY CLOSE TO THE RAILWAY STATION SO COMMUTING BACK HOME WAS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE.
