Built in the 14th Century, the Rose & Crown is one of Colchester’s most iconic buildings. At one time featuring a working prison, today the hotel accommodates guests across 39 rooms. Split between the original building and a purpose-built modern wing. Licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies with a restaurant specialising in flavoursome, fresh cuisine. With several characteristic conference rooms The Rose & Crown Colchester is the ideal base for an escape to Britain’s oldest recorded town.
We recently held our Masonic Ladies Festival at The Rose & Crown Hotel, Colchester, and it could not have been a better venue. From the early planning, Lisa Grantham was exceptionally helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for her. The evening was a great success, the food was excellent, not one complaint or moan from 135 guests, only praise for the service. The team of waiters and waitresses were superbly managed by Stefan, who ensured all of our guests were well treated. Our evening was a great success, we were most definitely looked after by the whole team on duty that evening. Thank you!

Sunday lunch has never been as good as it gets here!! I very reluctantly share this information in fear of Sundays selling out! Easily the best Roast option in Colchester!! Staff is lovely and the beautiful Tudor pub feels ancient and welcomes you.. I go there every Sunday if I can!! Ps. The best sticky toffee pudding on the planet!
Home away from home
Stayed here for 2 nights (not the first time we have stayed). Wonderful hotel, full of character, very clean, the staff are excellent, very helpful and friendly, we were particularly helped by Sue and Stefan
Excellent stay at the Rose and Crown this weekend. A warm greeting from reception awaited us. Our room was very good, clean and tidy and in keeping with the rest of the hotel. There was ample complementary tea, coffee, milk etc in the room. We ate dinner at the hotel which was equally enjoyable.
