budget if there are 2 of you

2.80/5.0
excellent shower
Plug hole needed clearing as the water level rose very quickly in shower tray. Sheets looked like they hadnt been changed as I found a few stray hairs upon inspection. The towels felt quite damp like they been used before and rolled up and put back on the heater. Just a little grubby that's all.

Room Serviced daily towel changed after 3 days. Although compact, a fridge, microwave and ironing facilities are provided. Very generous hospitality tray. Great Housekeeper who made our stay very comfortable

Ideal. Good simple accomodation

4.60/5.0
No staff on site but clean and maintained. Fridge, microwave and kettle in room very useful. Ideal for a short break.
Bath mat was stained (guessing hair dye), could've done with 2 towels rather than one as a couple staying but other than that....nothing.

Not impressed when compared with accommodation all over the UK.

2.70/5.0
Personal fridge.
No teletext, even though it was on the TV - remote first had flat batteries, then the replacement remote not compatible. Bed was a bit hard. Noisy traffic outside my window. £55 per night is far to expensive for single accomodation without breakfast. Although I knew beforehand, not keen on seeing nobody throughout the 4 night stay.

Very good value for money. Well located for Colchester Station.

4.80/5.0
The room was very small although that was made quite clear. It was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in at a hotel or BnB.
You don't meet any staff at all! It seems a bit odd but it did work. There are emegency contact details if you do need them.

Terrible

2.70/5.0
liked the room.
the half drank bottle of water in the fridge was a nice touch. the guest down stairs didnt kept us up all night, argueing and shouting, banging on doors, asking for help, i even herd the woman call the man she was in the room with a pedophile amongst some other lovely names, herd him assault her aswell as she was shouting get off me, i did contact the number we were provided with to see if they could get them to shut up or leave and received no response until the morning. so was not impressed atall and did not enjoy my stay. in the morning the message i received was apologetic but i received no refund, no gesture of good will and was not impressed atall with my stay whatsoever and will not be staying there again, or recommending anyone else does for that matter.

Good facilities for short budget stay.

4.15/5.0
Fridge and microwave, water and juice were very welcome as were and drink making facilities. Large bathroom, excellent heating. Clear instructions and information. Bed reasonably comfortable and towels adequate.
Car park restricted. We had to move our car at 6.30 am to allow contractors and their van to leave. Cigarette bin was right outside our window.

Railway sleeper stay.

4.60/5.0
A really good night sleep, comfortable bed, thick curtains, plenty of pillows. Lots of nice little touches! Convenient location.
The bathroom was a little on the chilly side, but still not a major downer.
