The stay was exceptional given the current climate. The beds are very small for 2 adults but they were comfortable.

    Great value.

    Although not central for Colchester it's only a 10-15 drive depending on traffic. Great value for money, lovely shower and breakfast included. Our 2nd stay due to home renovations.
