The staff were very welcoming, cheerful and efficient. The hotel is in a good location for the town.
Supper menu looked good but we ate out in town. There are loads of eateries/restaurants close to the hotel.

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
sat navs have difficulty finding this hotel and it really needs to found during daylight or new instructions for the hotel
im not sure the post code is correct and it was quite a chore to find especially as the A12 is very busy and if your a visitor most cars have no sympathy for lost drivers
other than that it was a very clean hotel and breakfast was excellent

Hotel only been open 5 weeks so still some teething problems but nothing serious. Nicely decorated and staff very friendly and helpful. Ideally situated for shopping in Colchester town centre and close to university for family visits. Be aware of the very narrow entrance to the rear carpark - fold your wing mirrors in!
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.
