This is the third time I have stayed at this hotel and exch time my experience is one of complete satisfaction. The staff are very friendly and always willing to help with queries and nothing is too much trouble. Food is excellent and you are not kept waiting. Can't wait to go again
Stayed here several times before. No issues, liked car security and parking. this time my car had been tampered with.
Rang the staff, who were initially disinterested in my findings and got very stroppy - telling me it was nothing they could be held responsible for! finally they acknowledged that me call was only to advise them they might have a problem and would consider the cctv.

"Great hotel accessible to everything in Colchester"
Staff was uber helpful and kind. Hotel was smack dab in the middle of everything with a taxi stand and bus stops right outside and an entire shopping center just a turn to the right. Great place! Perfect for visiting Colchester.

"Fabulous place to stay within the Colchester area."
We booked an executive double bedroom at an incredible price, on arrival we were greeted in a professional manner and dealt with promptly. The staff, at all levels made the stay warm and welcome. The room was immaculate, the bed very comfortable and the facilities exemplary.
A hotel full of olde worlde charm. The one thing that struck us during our stay (apart from the low beams!) was the friendliness and helpfulness of every member of staff. They all went out of their way to make us feel at home. We've stayed here about four times now and we'll certainly be back.

Once arrived at the grefriars hotel, great private parking. And the hotel team were second to none with their greetings and friendliness. This was booked for my wifes birthday and the experience will stay with us for a long time. The hotel team even brought to our room a cake and champaigne was awaiting us when we got to the room.
We ate in the rose room which was a little quieter and cosier than the main dining area which made it even more special. The 3 course meal that we chose was out of this world. The bedroom a was a junior suite with a great bathroom with a double shower area and a bath twin sinks. The bed was king size and very comfortable. We cannot fault anything about our stay at the greyfriars. We will be booking again for those special occassions
This B&B was a plesure. We arrived late in the Evening and our Host received us verry friendly. It is realy a plessure to meet this two Italien Hosts. The Room was okay - so there is nearly everything zu need for a night. You have your own bathroom including shower, you have some Water for the night and a nice cabinet.
Very helpful owners and room was excellent as was the full English breakfast.
Only minus point was trying to find the place, Expedia put address as "Mill lane, Colchester"
There are however three "Mill lanes" in Colchester!! Needless to say I tried the other two first and was driving around for a good hour. My satnav doesn't work with postcodes.
