We stayed here for two nights while attending daughter's graduation from Essex University - very conveniently nearby. The room was quiet,spotless, all necessary facilities in place and functioning, and with a friendly and efficient welcome from the management. Secure parking and free wifi a definite 'plus'!.

We had a wonderful three night stay at the Brightlingsea Motel during May 2014. It is a great central location for everything in Brightlingsea. The room was lovely and clean with a superb, family-size bathroom. The breakfast was just fantastic, and the family who run the hotel are all very warm, helpful and friendly. It was also extremely good value.... More

We stayed for three nights last weekend while visiting family in the area. The welcome from the owners was great, as were the breakfasts! Our room was comfortable and had all the facilities required, including a good shower. Our only comment b would be in the size of the duvet... I believe that double beds should have king size duvets.... More

We stayed here for just one night and we will be sure to book again. The motel is the perfect base for a stay in Brightlingsea. Not only are the rooms excellent - clean and spacious but the owners are first class. The breakfast is also cracking, and 'mother in laws' babysitting service is highly recommended (looked after our 8... More

Dear The Chapmans Thank you very much for your wonderful review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the Motel. Travelling with such a young person can be challenging sometimes as I well know! We are thrilled that our "baby sitting" service helped you. We hope to see all of you again in the future. More
