Crowne Plaza Resort – Five Lakes
Maldon, Essex CM9 8HX United Kingdom 01621 868888 www.cpcolchester.co.uk
If you have frequented classic car auctions, you will know that for many the best will be in what amounts to little more than a converted barn. Heating will be optional and, invariably, most of the vehicles to be sold will be parked outside in whatever climate mother nature has decided upon.
This is not the case at Essex Classic Car Auctions!
Our venue is the superb Crowne Plaza Five Lakes Resort, near Colchester in Essex.
This modern, upmarket resort overlooks two 18-hole golf courses and 320-acres of countryside, just 20 minutes from Colchester.
All the relaxed, sleek rooms feature en-suite bathrooms with tubs and showers, satellite TV, tea and coffeemaking facilities, plus WiFi access. Some upgraded rooms have additional bedrooms, air-conditioning and golf course or garden views, while Suites offer balconies, lounges, and foyers.
Guest Facilities include an indoor heated pool with whirlpool, plus a fitness centre, tennis courts and spa (a fee is payable). Food options range from fine British fare to light snacks, with an elegant bar serving cocktails. Parking is free.
Best of all, our Auction Venue is part of the hotel and large enough to hold over 100 vehicles – indoors in a heated, carpeted, display area the like of which you are unlikely to see at any other classic car auction in the UK.
While you are waiting for your Lot to come up, if fancy a proper cup of coffee (not one served in a plastic cup from a “catering van”), you can always pop into the Hotel where you will find a branch of Starbucks.
For sellers there is ample parking for transporters and, with space for nearly 2,000 cars, you will always find somewhere to park (and it’s free).
Essex Classic Car Auctions have arranged a special rate of just £129.95 for two people in a double-occupancy room, including evening meal and breakfast.
So why not come along on Viewing Day and spend a few hours browsing the Lots, then enjoy an evening in comfortable surroundings before waking to breakfast and a leisurely morning. Bring your partner with you and, if they don’t want to visit the auction, they can always take advantage of the hotel’s pool, fitness centre or spa – or maybe even play a round on one of the two golf courses.
What other classic car auction can offer you that?
