I came here for a funeral and stayed at the motel. Lovely little place. Very clean and tidy. Very helpful staff. Nice B'fast. Be warned town clock goes every hr so if your a light sleeper........ But a great place to rest up over night!

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

We stayed for 3 nights and were really impressed, the room was spacious, clean with great facilities. The breakfast was brilliant and we were really looked after. Safe and secure parking is also a really big plus. We have no hesitation in recommending the Brightlingsea Motel. Mike and Val

What's not to like about this place ? Motel is right in the centre of delightful Brightlingsea with everything you want and need right on your doorstep. Secure parking behind electric gates, park your car right outside your room. Delightful friendly owners and staff who make you feel right at home from the moment you arrive.

Stayed in Green Room. Bed smaller than average hotel room but quite comfy. Breakfast acceptable but "The Full English" was a little sparse and no mushrooms. But was enough for me. Spotted some mould round shower tray. Naughty-naughty - that could be easily removed.
