Stay for a week in February whilst working in Colchester ,what a loverly place and the food is excellent and ample helpings and all reasonable priced ,but the only down side was the low ceiling great for a hobbit but bring over 6ft you have to remember to duck but worth it
Well worth the money
Stayed here for 2 nights in June. Very good hotel,excellent food and service, rooms very clean nice shower Comfy bed. It got quite warm at night but fans are supplied which helped a lot. As I was going to miss breakfast the hotel did me an early morning continental to take away..much appreciated. Would I stay here again?.. definitely.
My wife and I had our Christmas Day lunch at the Rose & Crown and could not have had a more welcoming visit. The staff were very friendly and one of our waiters Robin, was very attentive and polite, although to be fair they were all lovely. The food was excellent and the character of the old building made for a memorable Xmas day.
Christmas day meal at a great location
Just enjoyed a fabulous lunch in this historic building. Great choice of meals, food freshly cooked and delicious. Service very friendly and welcoming, would highly recommend as a restaurant to enjoy a leisurely lunch with family or friends.
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!
