Hotel chain Holiday Inn wants to sell its site in Colchester.

The 110-bedroom hotel at Eight Ash Green, off junction 26 of the A12, has been put on the market by Holiday Inn, along with 20 other UK sites.

Property adviser Christie and Co, which is handling the sales, is inviting offers of £70million or more for all 21 hotels.

It will listen to offers for individual locations, but a Christie and Co spokesman declined to reveal the market value of the Colchester hotel.
