Environment - External & Internal

The environment is fantastic with the historic looking exterior of the building creating a nice fall back for the photos. We also had the benefit of the love garden for photos and drinks.

Rooms - The bridal room is very spacious and we were allowed the use of

it a lot earlier than should have been

Event room decor - I will not name her - She is fantastic!but she showed me the room on the penultimate day and asked if wanted any more petals...of course, and the room was spectacular by the next morning.

Food and drinks - The food was great and excellent choices available for non meat eaters!

Overall the staff on ground were very happy to help. I certainly recommend the Rose and Crown and will be back for my anniversary party!!!!

I can not give Lisa and her fantastic team enough praise for making our special day extra special.
Everything from the Friday night when we checked in up to the Sunday morning was done with professionalism and a lovely touch of Lisa's humour.
The venue itself is perfect for an all inclusive

I first visited the venue in May. I was highly impressed by the neat and tidy environment as well as the pleasantness of the staff.
Lisa talked us through the wedding and what we will need as well as the options we can have.
Fast forward to the penultimate day, event room set up with guest names

laid ....all set.

The day! We had guests from Denmark and Iceland (Per is from Denmark). All guests had nothing but great comments about the service they received. I had access to the bride's room as early as 9 am for a 12.30 wedding.
The staff all bent over backwards to help us.
The food! I initially wasn't happy that we couldn't mix the selection,but hey,the food was of high quality and great standard. The gluten frees and vegetarians were well catered for.
Per feels that we got more/better service than we paid for!

I have no hesitation in recommending the Best Western Rose and Crown in Colchester.
