    About

    A modern Colchester hotel just off the A12 road, with free parking, free Wi-Fi and an indoor pool. Holiday Inn® Colchester hotel is just off the A12 road, for direct access to London and Ipswich. The shopping and restaurants of historic Colchester are a 10-minute drive away. Colchester Town station is served by direct trains to London. Fancy a family day out? The exotic animals and birds of Colchester Zoo are less than 10 minutes' drive from the hotel. Or spend a day on the beach at Mersea Island or Clacton-on-Sea, both half an hour away by car. Scenic Dedham Vale in the heart of Constable Country, the region depicted in the great artist's paintings, is just 12 minutes' drive from the hotel. At Freeport Braintree shopping outlet, 20 minutes away, you can browse for brand store bargains. In the hotel's seven flexible event rooms you can host meetings or functions for up to 120 people. There's natural light, as well as free Wi-Fi and AV equipment to bring your presentations to life. In the casual, barn-style restaurant, you can start your day with a buffet breakfast, or enjoy a juicy steak for lunch or dinner. Or just take it easy over drinks and a burger with friends in the bar. Keep in shape with a visit to the well-equipped gym or indoor pool, before you relax in the jacuzzi or sauna, or treat yourself to a pre-booked beauty treatment.
