The hotel is a stone’s throw from the Norman Castle which is in the beautiful Castle Park. Visit the information centre in the nearby Hollytrees Museum for details of the Roman heritage, military history, nearby wildlife centres (including Colchester Zoo), or take a trip to the Wilkins Jam factory (and tea shop) in Tiptree, to the coast or out to Dedham to experience Constable country. You would need more than a short break to discover all that the Colchester area has to offer.”
