Very happy with room, really comfortable & clean. Only disappointment was waiting to order once seated in restaurant, 30 minutes & waiting for bill after meal, food was excellent though. We had a hotel gift voucher for an anniversary present, beware these can only be used once, so any amount left cannot be saved.
Not easily found and almost impossible without sat nav. we had to ring for instructions. Being disabled was the main reason we opted for this hotel only to find all bar one taken by idle ignorant able bodied drivers.
These were about the only down points of this hotel.

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.
Very friendly hosts, nice homely welcoming place, clean bedroom and bathroom. Great homemade food - delicious breakfast made fresh and excellent all round service.
Would definitely recommend to others and go back.
Local shops and facilities nearby, good transport links and close to town centre.
