The Red Lion Hotel was built in 1465 and is in the center of Colchester, Britain's oldest recorded town. The historic building has original Tudor features, including wood beams.
The Red Lion Hotel is one of the oldest inns in the area. The individually decorated rooms with private bathrooms mix traditional charm with modern comforts, including flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, radios, suit presses and tea/coffee making facilities.
The Red Lion's old banquet hall is now the Parliament Restaurant. The restaurant offers classic dishes and still has the original wood-beam ceiling. There is also a bar and 24-hour room service is available.
The hotel is a short walk from the shops and Colchester Town Train Station is 1,650 feet away.
Parking is available at a discounted rate in the public parking lot less than half a mile away.
