The Best Western Marks Tey Hotel offers convenience near Colchester, the oldest recorded town in Great Britain! In one of the country's most picturesque areas (immortalized in Constable's paintings), our accommodation consists of 110 excellent bedrooms, 12 meeting and function rooms and the Lifestyle Health and Leisure Club with an indoor pool, spa, sauna, steam room, gym and outdoor tennis courts. The Roman Room restaurant menu offers an extensive choice of modern cuisine and an excellent wine list. Speaking of top drops, the lounge bar is a comfortable and popular place to gather or hold an informal meeting over a glass or two! Local places to visit include the beautiful backdrops captured so accurately by Constable, including Flatford Mill and Dedham. The antique towns of North Essex and Suffolk are perfect for pottering around, and Colchester's impressive Norman Castle, a number of museums and the award winning Zoo give guests even more choice when it comes to getting out and about! Please note our restaurant has limited availability on various Friday nights due to events. On these nights dinner will still be available from the bar or room service menu.
