Built in the 14th century, The Rose and Crown Hotel is one of Colchester’s most iconic buildings. The 39 bedrooms are split between the original building and a purpose-built modern wing. We’re conveniently located if you’re looking for a hotel near University of Essex or Colchester Zoo, and we’re the perfect hotel for weddings or celebrations of any kind, with plenty of free parking and a ‘Secret Garden’. Our traditional bar has a real log fire and our restaurant specialises in flavoursome, fresh cuisine – both are open to hotel guests and local residents alike. With several characteristic meeting rooms (including a 700 year old prison!), The Rose and Crown Hotel is the perfect place to stay in Colchester if you’re looking for some culture and a glimpse back in history in Britain’s oldest recorded town.
