As I came from overseas to visit Colchester for several days to visit my aunt in hospital, I was in need of a warm and homelike atmosphere.
Laina and James were wonderful hosts. The warmth of their welcome sometimes made me feel that I was part of the family! The three dogs and the cat greeted me sagaciously and I was honored to have them flop down and prop themselves against my knees
The room I slept in was attractively furnished, very comfortable and there was provision for hot drinks. There was a beautiful modern bathroom close by and I was even provided with a terrytowel robe. Normally I am used to ensuite accommodation, but in this case it was of no importance whatsoever.
Breakfast was served in a pleasant front room and there was a choice of good breakfast items and if I wished there was the possibility of using the front lounge to relax in. But my room was a welcome and relaxing place too.
I did have time to enjoy the town of Colchester. Though this is the first Roman town in Britain, it has kept up with the times and is enjoyable to visit - and it also has great eating places.
One day I hope to return with my family to enjoy a relaxed holiday at Rutland House.
