"Warm friendly welcome & very good value for money"
On arrival (we were late) our welcome was warm and friendly. A welcome cup of tea and friendly conversation. Our room was clean, comfortable and well presented. It was a pleasant change to be greeted by a friendly face and to be welcomed into a home as well as a B&B. Good breakfast followed a good night sleep.
We visit Colchester regularly and my wife and I agree we will always try to return to the Retreat (unfortunately others may also discover it and we cannot get a room!). Read less
Likes:
Just feeling welcomed and being treated as if nothing was too much trouble. The room was excellent and at night no noise. Peace & Quiet!
Can recommend the Rovers Wye for an evening meal!!!!!
Dislikes:
It was only 1 night - but we shall return!

We are only an 8-minute drive from Colchester Train Station and only 20 minutes away on the A120 from Harwich International Port with connections to Holland and Denmark. Cyclists and walkers are welcome. Our rooms have pretty garden views and guests are welcomed with tea and homemade cake on arrival.

Our charming "'A Hideaway Retreat' " is owned and managed by your hosts, husband and wife, Richard and Gail. We have been in the hospitality industry for over 16 years having previously run a B&B in another property. Our vast amount of experience enables us to offer you a friendly, first class service that will make your stay as relaxed and enjoyable as possible. Our bed and breakfast has two very large suite rooms, individually tastefully designed and very homely. Guests here are welcomed from all over the world and our home is a bungalow, therefore all on ground level.


Breakfast is served each day in our brand new, modern, stylish and comfortable dining room. We offer an extensive menu of delicious locally sourced food, or that from our own garden in season, prepared and cooked by us. Choices range from a full English traditionally cooked breakfast with other choices too and also a lighter choice of menu or continental breakfast. Vegetarian options are also available. Local organic produce is used whenever possible and we provide home-made marmalades & jams many various bakes. We always welcome guests upon arrival with homemade tea/coffee & homemade cakes (varied according to that which are made by ourselves)

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Check-in is from 4pm. However it is very important that guests liaise with us for an arrival time. Check-out is at 10:30am. Latest check-in is at 21:00. Early check-ins may be available upon request but can not be guaranteed.
