Red Lion Hotel in Colchester has really gone down hill

Stay Date: 21/02/14, a customer aged 25-44 from Trowbridge who stayed at 3* Brook Red Lion Hotel (Afternoon Tea Offer) in Colchester wrote this review.

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 See More  Read more information 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 weredifferent 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 wasquite 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 eitherbut 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 avery 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  Hide
