Had a very nice one night stay here for work. Old style architecture, luxurious and comfortable decor, and great food at the brasserie. Would highly recommend for family or romantic stays, or for holding events as well.

Like the majority of hotels, eating here in my opinion is pricey. However, Wivenhoe has no real alternatives, so you’re probably looking at a drive into Colchester, so You’re probably better off giving the hotel a go!£

All the dining areas are directly linked to or in the main old building, there’s a lovely breakfast room and lounge, and then there’s the modern brasserie downstairs attached to the back
