The room had nothing it said it would have. No iron or hair dryer. Shower was bad no jet went from cold or very hot. Afternoon tea was never offered as was included in price. Breakfast no was around to take order for over 10 minutes then we had tea and a coffee the milk was off took them 10 minutes or so to change it thee was bits missing of the breakfast no tea spoons and them there was an hair on the beacon. And then when we ask about who to contact to complain know one knew who or a number to give and then leaving the car park pass didn't work. Would never want to stay there again even if it was FREE Collapse

After staying at the Red Lion Hotel in Colchester on a few occassions around 6- 8 years ago i was appalled at how bad it has deteriorated and how unclean it is now. We changed to three different rooms because of the standard of furniture and the cleanliness of the bathrooms and all three were very substandard. The first two rooms had two single beds pushed together (first room they were different sized beds so slight difference in height) which was strange as we had booked a double bed and all were very un hygenic with body hair in plug holes and dirty toilets and a toilet brush that was quite frankly disgustingly filthy. The third room we finally stayed in did at least have a double bed and wasn't as bad but still had other residents hair over the carpet. There was no hot water either but this was explained from the manager that we had to run both bath and sink hot water taps for around 15 minutes to get it to come through as the hot water comes from the other side of the hotel. There was mould on all the ceilings in the bathrooms it was explained by members of staff that the head cleaner had had an accident and that the staff who were now doing the cleaning were not doing a very good job. Over all I would not reccomend this hotel to anyone.....it spoiled what was a good weekend to return to Colchester to meet family and friends. Collapse
