Our Journey

We have come a long way since moving in at 51 North Hill in 2008.
We started our journey as a small 13 bedroom hotel with the Greenroom restaurant seating a modest 50 covers, opening our doors on December 1st 2008 we hit the ground running with a fantastic first year, meeting and developing great relationships with a wide variety of customers many of which still join us on a weekly basis.

15th century Barn & Cottage

Stage 2 of our development began in 2011 with the conversion of our 15th century barn and cottage tucked away behind the main hotel, this sympathetic restoration created an extra 4 grand bedrooms including 2 king size, 1 executive king size and our fantastic mini suite set within the rafters of the cottage.

The Green Room also benefited from the extension with the addition of “the barn” function suite generating space for an extra 30 plus guests, not only for restaurant dinning but for business meetings, group celebrations and parties.

Courtyard & Chambers

Stage 3, our most recent expansion began with the fitting of a large glass roof over our enclosed courtyard in November 2013, this has created a relaxed conservatory style space between our lounge and function room, the space creates an outdoor dinning experience without the threat of the ever changing British weather.

The expansion then continued with the purchase of the Victorian “chambers” building, secluded from the hustle and bustle of the main town the “chambers” has been transformed into another 7 large king size bedrooms, equipped with a very modern feel and everything you could need for business or pleasure.


With 24 bedrooms, we are a quality, boutique hotel in the heart of the historic town Colchester, Essex.
