OMC Investments are making great progress with the conversion of Grey Friars, Hillcrest and All Saints House into a boutique hotel, bar and restaurant. We are delighted that so much care is being taken to respect the original craftsmanship and to present local people and visitors with a high-quality environment in which to meet, dine and stay. Many have appreciated the effort made to keep an attractive street scene during the extensive repair, renovation and conversion works. For updates visit:

    Thousands of peoiple living in Colchester and elswhere have fond memories of working at Grey Friars or being students during its use for Secondary Education and as a Adult Education Centre for Colchester. We are all delighted about its conversion into a Luxury Hotel and Restaurant. The main advantage of this is that its unique achitectural features will be preseved, but also be available for visitors and the Citzens of Colchester to enjoy for years to come.
