Here at the Marks Tey Hotel we take everyone's safety seriously. That's why we follow all the Government guidance. Local restrictions still allow for training, education or work related essential meetings to take place up to 50% of the usual maximum capacity per room.

This means we can now accommodate up to 90 delegates in our Balkan Suite upstairs or 50 in our Claudius Suite downstairs. We will however review this in line with socially distanced layouts to ensure we keep everyone safe and secure.

Some of the additional measures we have in place here at the Hotel include, face masks worn in all public areas, additional staff training, increased frequency of cleaning, hand sanitiser stations around the Hotel with pumps in every meeting room. Exclusive catering areas with no mixed groups (subject to availability) takeaway options where preferred, disposable containers for food service where preferred, staff serving food wearing both face masks and gloves, individually wrapped biscuits packets and lidded milk jugs used during at refreshment breaks.

Although buffets are currently a thing of the past we are able to serve meals to meeting delegates and options include a limited plated set meal or lunch bag "to go style" including items pre-packaged to avoid any cross-contamination. 


Conveniently placed adjacent to the A12 with excellent transportation links to East Anglia, London and the M25, The Marks Tey Hotel is the perfect meeting venue in Colchester, with free parking and free WiFi available throughout.

The Marks Tey Hotel has a range of rooms suitable for small intimate meetings as well as larger conferences.

Our Balkan Suite, which can accommodate up to 200 delegates, benefits from it's own large foyer area, ideal to take refreshments during registration. 
With adjacent restrooms, this private space creates a self-contained feel. There is also an accessible lift to the suite and like many of the meeting room, you can drive up close and unload directly in to the room ensuring access is both quick and easy.
