Comfort in Colchester.

The BEST WESTERN Rose and Crown Hotel is within walking distance of Colchester city centre. With a proud history of hospitality, it's the oldest recorded hotel in England's oldest recorded town!

That means you can look forward to a real oldy-worldy stay, with oak beamed walls, original chimneys and original small paned windows all adding to this 14th Century coaching inn-turned hotel's appeal.

Colchester itself offers just as much character and charm, thanks to a rich history of Roman, Medieval and Victorian influences. You'll be near Constable Country too, which should give you an idea of the beautiful scenery and picturesque villages that will be on your doorstep!
This property is at an elevation of approximately 30 feet / 9.3 metres above sea level
