Colchester in Essex is Britain's oldest recorded town, with a rich history dating back over 2000 years. Colchester today is a thriving, modern town with great visitor attractions, including the family favourites Colchester Zoo and Colchester Castle, as well as fantastic places to eat, drink and shop.
Whether you prefer the big five star treatment or the personal touch of an intimate boutique, catering for family holidays, short trips or business stays in and around the town. Stay in a hotel near the town centre within walking distance of the shopping areas, historic sites and attractions, Colchester offers plenty of choices.
A casual affair with sofas and stools, café tables and counters, coffee each morning, a quick bite for lunch, craft beer and cocktails by night, you'll be welcomed with warmth and hospitality.
