There are a few more hotels in Colchester than has been the case in recent years. We do advise checking out Trip Advisor, or Booking.com for reviews!
There are a pair of historic hotels on the High Street : the George Hotel and the Red Lion.
Leading down from one end of the High street is North Hill, with the North Hill Hotel.
At the other end of the High Street is East Hill, at the top of which is the very new, and very luxurious Greyfriars Hotel. At the bottom of East Hill is the Best Western Rose & Crown Hotel.
Budget hotels just a few minutes walk from the town centre include The Globe Hotel, the Star Anglia and the Riverside Hotel. If you want the security of a bigger budget chain, then Premier Inn have one hotel on Cowdray Avenue (ten minutes walk from town), and a brand new one on St Peter’s Street, just off the High Street, which is nearing completion.
There are Best Western and Holiday Inn Express hotels on the outskirts of the town, a bus journey or drive into the town centre. Remember, Trip Advisor is your friend when booking hotels – here’s their Colchester page! Sort by distance to get town centre hotels, and check those ratings and comments!!
