About Us

The Riverside Hotel is a 17th Century, Grade 2 listed building.  It was built in 1604 and has many original period features.

The hotel is situated on the banks of the River Colne within England’s oldest recorded town, Colchester.

The hotel is ideally situated a mere 5 minutes from both the town centre and the beautiful grounds of the Castle Park.  Additionally the town’s main train station is only a 10-minute walk away.  As such the hotel makes an excellent base for visitors who are visiting Colchester for either business or pleasure.

We offer very competitive rates, and all our prices include use of the hotel car park as well an English breakfast for all guests.  To make your reservation please use the form below or call us on +44 (0) 1206 500 200.

There are two bus stops very close to the hotel, both on North Station Road. If you are heading towards the town, the closest stop is just outside the One Stop Supermarket. If you are travelling in the opposite direction there is a bus stop next to the HSBC bank. The walk to the hotel from either stop is around 1 minute.


From Colchester's main station turn right onto North Station road. Continue across two roundabouts and you will shortly arrive at the hotel - it is a large red building on the bank of the river. The walk is approximately 10 minutes long.
