I attended a wedding last weekend. Was told the ladies toilets were upstairs, having walking difficulties I asked for the disabled toilets to be told there wasn't one, but it wouldn't be a problem as they had a downstairs room I could use. The key was found and I was left in the room to use the facilities as I left I noticed a bag on the floor but thought it must be staffs. Before the meal I went to find the key to use the facilities again, when I arrived the girl from reception knocked and called room service, the door was opened by a young couple who obviously were staying in the room and were quite rightly very unhappy about a stranger using their toilet for the duration of the afternoon and evening. I couldn't bring myself to use their room again as it was embarrassing this made me very uncomfortable for the remainder of the celebrations. Also I couldn't help but notice the inadequate fire exits in the marquee which I know is a high fire hazard THIS should be checked by Essex Fire Service.

Make use of the gym and pool facilities here and they are really good, especially if you can get the pool during a quiet time. Had a meal at the Bistro too, good quality food and reasonably priced.

Thank you also to FErlynne who posted this review on tripadvisor of our Peresteda apartments at The Club, just outside Colchester.
"Just used this as a pad really as visiting Colchester very briefly to visit the Zoo (which is amazing), but the hotel looked lovely and very grand. Our apartment was above the leisure facilities, (we did not use the facilities in the gym so cannot comment) it was very clean and had everything you could possibly need for a short stay. We did not eat in the restaurant but it looked lovely. The hotel is very well situated off the main road down a long impressive drive way (very quiet you would not know the road was there). Very handy for Colchester just 10 mins away. The staff were very friendly and helpful and I would recommend Prested Hall Hotel.
Room Tip: Room 24 was quiet and over looked the tennis courts"

Thank you very much KJInskip for your review on your Easter wedding at Prested Hall.
"My wife and I decided to book Prested Hall for our Easter themed wedding as we favoured the intimacy of having this venue to ourselves for the event. With rooms to sleep over 30 of our guests it also allowed a large family breakfast the following morning.
Joanne Thorn and her staff were brilliant on the months leading up to our wedding tending to any request that we had. 
On the morning of the event all rooms were ready early and before our guests appeared which was a bonus. 
The day was perfect with the Prested team doing everything they could to assist even changing the meals of our guests who preferred things like Pate rather than soup and a cheese board rather than the allocated wedding package desserts.
Breakfast cooked or continental was delightful the following morning after a sleep in
the rooms which are large and comfortable. 
The whole weekend could not have gone better. 
I would thoroughly recommend Prested Hall and anyone who is getting married would be mad not to visit this place before they decide their final venue."

And finally thank you to Jackie H who posted this review on TripAdvisor:
“The wedding of our beautiful daughter Amy to her handsome George”
Absolutely amazing venue and staff. Our daughter got married at Prested on 2nd April 15. The sun even came out in celebration of their special day. If you are thinking of having your wedding here I cannot recommend it enough, the staff are absolutely wonderful and cannot do enough for you in a very unobtrusive way and Jill our wedding organiser at the venue is an absolute angel. The actual venue is very stylish and has and intimate feel to it, cant think of one negative regarding the venue or the staff. My advice would be to BOOK IT for your wedding you wont be disappointed.

Thank you very much to mevo87 for this review left on Tripadvisor:
'Amazing Wedding'
"Words can't even explain how amazing our wedding was at this venue. Perfect I think is the closest word to describe it. Amazing staff and wedding planner which made the day a dream come true. From the date of booking our wedding day to the big day itself everything ran with such ease. We were able to contact prested with any questions and had amazing contact with our wedding planner and staff from the spa who done my wedding make up and hair. The entire experience was excellent!
I had 30 guests stay on our wedding night and the feedback from each person was positive. Their rooms were comfortable and they were all amazed with the views and surroundings, the helpfulness of every member of staff at the venue and all the little extra touches that prested done to make it super beautiful. highly recommended and I have already recommended prested hall to friends who are hoping to book prested in the near future for their wedding. If you want perfection for your wedding or just a beautiful place to stay, prested will deliver this without fail!"

Thank you very much Laura for your lovely review! We're glad we made your stay so special!
'Perfect Mother and Daughter Stay. I contacted Prested Hall early February to arrange a nights stay for my daughters 7th Birthday treat. Myself and my husband got married here in 2007 which was fabulous and my daughter has always enjoyed looking through photos and talking about our day. For her birthday I said I would take her there and stay in the posh bridal suite where I stayed all those years ago. She loved the idea and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and kind in booking this special treat. At check in, we were greeted by a lovely welcome and shown to our room. It was stunning! Clean, bright and perfect just as I'd remembered it. She thoroughly enjoyed the complimentary biscuits and couldn't wait to explore the grounds. The hall is always decorated beautifully with stunning fresh flowers. We popped over to the spa for Family Swim which was nice. Our meal was booked for 7pm, we had two courses of a main and a dessert. Delicious! The staff were polite, attentive and engaged my daughter in a lovely manner even though they didn't need to. I want to say a massive thankyou to karen and Gemma who returned from the kitchen with a candle lit birthday treat of sweeties and candies, it made our trip and she's constantly telling everyone how lovely her friends Gemma and Karen were to her. Thankyou again, she wants to do this every year. We are on to a winner with Prested Hall. Laura'

A big thank you to Barbara K for this review left on Tripadvisor:
'Fantastic one night stay away from it all'
We both had a lovely time, the room was clean and comfortable and the food was delicious. We ventured over to the Leisure club for an afternoon swim on our day of arrival and also used it before we left for home the following day. All the staff in the Hall and Leisure club were very polite and made us feel very welcome. We shall certainly visit again and recommend the hotel to anyone.

Thank you and Happy Birthday Jacqueline! What a lovely review you left on TripAdvisor about your 70th birthday here!
'70th Birthday Celebratory Afternoon Tea. I was celebrating my 70th Birthday with family and friends at Prested Hall with an afteroon tea. It was a lovely afternoon and the staff were very attentive and happy to make the occasion a most enjoyable experience. We were a party of 14 plus my two 18 month old grandchildren we were in the garden room which was very nice and the large table we had was ideal for the size of the party and there was plenty of room for the grandchildren to roam around so was a very stress free afternoon. The afternoon tea was lovely plenty of sandwiches, cakes, tea and coffee and a super birthday cake to finish off with - Thank you Prested Hall for a very happy and memorable occasion.' We're glad you had such a lovely day!
