Holiday Inn Express Colchester
Perfect overnight stop
We needed a one night stop for a funeral and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice of hotel - with free breakfast, parking and wifi and great value for money.

Holiday Inn Express Colchester
A joyful place to stay
Hotel is well situated and gives easy access to local places of interest. Only problem is the post code which confused our sat nav. Perhaps some signage at the junction would minimise this. Inclusion of breakfast is a good deal and a good choice of foods. perhaps close at 10am during the week especially when one is on holiday.

Recommend to
Hotel was easy to find, food was good, staffs were friendly. Only 1 downside it does noisy when you have your windows open. But would definitely stay there again in the future!

Comfy and cosy
Apart from being confusing with the satnav the room was lovely slightly on the small side with the sofa bed pulled out as couldn't get to the work top, bathroom was lovely massive shower, very clean and I won't waffle on about the free breakfast! But it was delicious especially with vegetarian sausages available on request
