The oldest Hotel in England's oldest recorded town.

The Best Western Rose and Crown Hotel, originally a 14th century posting house, lovingly restored to a modern day hotel.

Nine executive rooms featuring flat screen LCD televisions, air-conditioning, laptop charging safes and premium quality fixtures and furnishings.

Alternatively, choose from the historic oak beamed rooms in the original house, or the more contemporary rooms in the main building.

All rooms have an entertainment system and either Wi-Fi or Internet data port.

The Oak room restaurant has been recently refurbished and offers a contemporary setting and great casual dining, a favorite with the locals and guests alike.

Have a pre-dinner drink in either the hotel lounge or enjoy the Tudor Bar/Brasserie with its more traditional foods and ales.

The hotel is within walking distance of Colchester Town centre (15 minutes) and accessible to all the historic sights of East Anglia. The Best Western Rose & Crown in Colchester was awarded Best Small Hotel in Essex.
