Chris and I would like to thank all of the staff at The Rose and Crown for making our day so special. In particular Catherine (Cat) and Sue Brown. Unfortunately Sue wasn't there for our wedding day, due to holiday, but leading up to our wedding, she was marvelous. She answered any questions or queries we had or tending to ... read more

The days leading up to it were fantastic, and the entire wedding day was as perfect as it possibly could be. The planning was EXCELLENT.

Perfect place for an all-inclusive wedding. Good location, plenty of parking for your guests. The staff at the hotel went out of their way to make all the guests feel at home. All the guests commented on how good the food was. The hotel has lots of history, it's an old hotel, but the rooms had mod cons. The four-poster ... read more

We had a wonderful time at The Rose and Crown. We couldn't ask for a better venue or staff that looked after us. All of our family were made to feel welcome and looked after. We were lucky enough to have Lisa help us from start to finish with all the changes that had to be made to our day. ... read more

2020 was a dreadful year. Our original plans were changed 8 times due to government guidance moving from no weddings to 30 guests, to an undecided tier contingency plan to 15 guests and then lockdown meaning our date moved....we were close to believing our wedding would never happen. but Lisa and the team at THE rose and crown, Colchester stuck ... read more

Can't recommend the Rose and Crown enough. Lisa and the team made sure everything was taken care of and made everything flow so effortlessly. From the night before, where the bar kept us fed and watered (the food was sublime), to the day of the wedding. Considering all the alterations we made through COVID the guys catered for all of ... read more

We got married on the quiet in September, but wanted to have a celebration party which we booked at the Rose & Crown for November. Myself and my husband made the right choice in choosing the Rose & Crown, as all of the staff were extremely helpful and polite and the evening was just as we wanted it to be. ... read more

Lisa and the team at the Best Western Rose & Crown Hotel, Colchester were, quite simply amazing.

StarStarStarStarStar by Rachel Harrison on Tue, 29th October, 2019

The Rose and Crown was the perfect place for our wedding reception. Beautiful and historic with plenty of room for large weddings. Incredibly reasonably priced for all that you get. The staff accommodated all our requests and managed both problems that arose beforehand, like complicated dietary requirements and on the day, like our band being stuck in traffic, with ease. ... read more

StarStarStarStarStar by Crystal Spaeth on Thu, 17th October, 2019

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 ... read more

I can not give Lisa and her fantastic team enough praise for making our special day extra special.

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.

We can't thank Lisa and the team enough. They were absolutely fantastic for our recent wedding. We knew we wanted to get married at the Rose & Crown the moment we visited for the wedding open day.
