Each room is unique, reflecting the history of the three buildings which together form GreyFriars, ranging from different parts of the 18th Century, the early part of the 20th Century and the 21st Century restoration.

The style is classical and contemporary at the same time. The carpets from Louis de Poortere in Belgium pay homage to the designs of earlier centuries. The furniture is bespoke and hand crafted in Stockport by master craftsmen. The general atmosphere is of lightness, comfort and elegant luxury.

Most of the rooms have generous fenestration and many enjoy interesting views: some overlook the terrace and park-like grounds to the rear; some have views of the roof tops of old Colchester town or of the Castle; others have views over East Hill, to the Georgian Grade I listed East Hill House opposite and its Coach House, or to St. James’s Church and beyond, and some have views of the spectacular Raphael Vinoly designed art gallery close by.

  • Individually controlled air conditioning
