We used the family room which had a double bed, double sofa bed and single sofa bed. The room was comfortable and spacious enough for a family of five, very clean and owners very welcoming. Parking is secure and convenient. The only drawback was that the motel is across the road from a rather tatty pub which had very loud... More

Spotlessly clean, very comfortable, in the middle of the village walking distance from everything you will need. I have stayed he before and is always on the top of my list when I return to this area. It's a bit cold this trip but I have stayed in this area during the summer before and it's beautiful. Plenty to do... More

We booked the motel as we were attending a birthday party locally. The booking process was easy and communications, when asked a question about parking, was fast and professional. The owner was waiting to check us in when we arrived and it was completed swiftly. He showed us to our room and explained about parking and entry. Things felt very... More

We had arranged a trip to see my uncle for his birthday when my mum had a fall and broke her shoulder and collarbone. The owner was so helpful and changed rooms for us so that I could be with mum. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was more than brilliant as was the lady who looked after us.... More

Small five room motel. We stayed overnight following a social event in Brightlingsea. It was a cold late winter evening but the owners had already been into the room and turned the heat up so it was nice and warm. The twin accommodation was reasonably roomy and very clean. The room also had a TV, tea making facilities and free... More

Came for the weekend for 2 nights ! Nice room, have everything need. Very clean. Excellent breakfast. Lovely hosts! Value for money. Defo come back again if in the area. Will always remember the place with nice Beach Huts. Well recommended ! Only suggestion: get a bigger signboard for the Motel in front of the street.

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
