More Information

With free parking and free Wi-Fi, this Tudor building dates back to 1604 and is situated on the banks of the River Colne, close to Colchester’s town centre and the railway station. Originally built in the 17th century, the Riverside Hotel has 18 en suite rooms, all with tea/coffee making facilities. Both of Colchester’s railways stations are just a short walk away, with London Liverpool Street only 50 minutes away by train. The port of Harwich is also within easy reach.

Colchester is England’s oldest recorded town and the hotel makes a great base from which to explore the area’s Roman, Saxon and Norman heritage. Colchester Castle and its beautiful grounds are just a short journey away. The East Anglian coastline is also within easy reach, as is Flatford Mill, the inspiration for John Constable's The Hay Wain. The hotel is just a short distance from the leisure centre, the theatre and Colchester Zoo, with nightclubs and Colchester’s main business parks also close by.
