The Rose and Crown Hotel offers a choice of unique meeting rooms in Colchester, accommodating up to 100 people. Our venue boasts excellent facilities, plenty of free parking and a superb selection of menus for lunch or dinner depending on the package.

We’re perfectly located just a short walk from Colchester town centre and Colchester train station, which connects Colchester to London. We’re fully flexible based on your needs, making us the ideal venue for your meeting, presentation, conference or any other corporate event.

Holding a team meeting away from the office is often the best way to get creative juices flowing. And staying together in a hotel overnight is a great way for your colleagues to bond and form closer relationships with each other.

Our meeting rooms can be exclusively hired for the day or on a 24-hour basis with overnight accommodation for your delegates. So whether you’re staying over in one of our 39 hotel rooms, stopping by for a working lunch or just dropping in for the day, The Rose and Crown Hotel Colchester provides the perfect private base to conduct business, away from the hustle and bustle of the office.

Covid-19 Safety Measures

With your safety in mind, we’ve changed how we run meetings and events at The Rose and Crown Hotel. Our new procedures are under constant review and will always follow the latest government advice.

Contactless Service & Enhanced Cleaning

Whether it’s checking in and out or ordering refreshments, we have invested in making our services available digitally. Meeting rooms are cleaned and fully sanitised between each use and we are operating on a card payment only system in all areas of the hotel.

Our enhanced deep cleaning programme is carried out throughout the whole hotel, perspex screens have been installed where possible and all of our team follow a policy of no physical contact, maintaining social distancing wherever possible.

Meeting Room Layout

We have ensured that our new meeting room layouts meet government guidelines on social distancing to ensure you and your delegates remain safe. See our new meeting rooms capacities below.

All tables and chairs can be moved around too so you can always move even further apart if the space allows it.

Hand Sanitiser

We have installed hand sanitising stations in all public areas of the hotel and are ensuring all touch points are sanitised after each use. Guests are required to wear a face mask in all public areas of the hotel (excludes areas such as the restaurant, bar, and bedrooms).

Refreshments and Lunch

Food and refreshments can be pre-ordered from our team for pre-arranged times throughout the day. We are also able to provide packed lunches individually and safely wrapped for each delegate if you prefer.
