Timbers Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 41 Colchester B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 July 2014

You would be hard pushed to find a better appointed B&B than this. The facilities were on a par which you would find in a good hotel, but unlike many hotels, this has a very personal touch from the hosts, Angela and Alan. The breakfast menu was more than you would find in many hotels and we would dearly love to have stayed more than one night to sample all the offerings! What I particularly liked about breakfast was sitting around a large table and chatting to the other guests - on our visit we were in the company of Norwegians and Estonians.
Whilst this is not the cheapest of B&Bs in Colchester, you are paying for quality - and Timbers has this in plenty.

I spent a couple of nights on my own in the double Oak Room. I tend to sleep poorly in new places but I was able to stretch out in the double bed and had two of the most restful nights ever in a B&B. The room and en-suite bathroom were not large, but very well-appointed, even if not furnished to my taste. The breakfasts were among the most delicious I have eaten in a B&B and are better than those in many hotels; there is also a varied menu to choose from. Angela and Alan were efficient and professional hosts throughout. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, but held back from giving the top rating because it was rather expensive for single occupancy in a double room.

We were visiting the area as a bit of a mini break. Alan & Angela are very welcoming hosts.They make you feel very comfortable. The room was very well decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The en-suite is well laid out and very clean.We would heartily recommend Timbers as a place to stay if you are in this area.

We were visiting the area on business and as a bit of a mini break. Alan & Angela are very warm and welcoming hosts. Nothing is too much trouble and they go out of their way to make you feel as comfortable as possible. The room was very well decorated and the bed comfortable. The en-suite is well laid out and very clean. Alan has a rolling program of replacing the showers which will enhance the room even more. The view over the rear garden is wonderful. As B&B owners ourselves, we would heartily recommend Timbers as a place to stay if you are in this area.

Very welcoming by host with tea and home made. Room was a dream with home made biscuit and sherry. Hosts very helpful and accommodating and welcome pack in room full of information and recommendations for dinner out. Had a lovely peaceful night sleep and enjoyable breakfast in the morning. Would throughly recommend and look forward to returning

The website calls it a luxury B&B with a first class breakfast and I was certainly not disappointed. Very warm welcome with home made cake and a fresh pot of tea from the hosts. Pleasant, clean, comfortable room with all the facilities. I slept very well. Breakfast, excellent, I had eggs parmasan, as it was a new one for me. Cost very reasonable. I'll stay again if I'm working in the area. Certainly happy to recommend.
