Room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was good, everything was cooked fresh. All staff were very friendly and service was first class. It is located just off the Main Street in Brightlingsea and easy to find.

Thank you for your review. I remember the incident well and as I explained at the time I thought it was static that caused the "shock" as I couldnt see how you could get a shock from a part of a shower that is not connected to any metal piping and is protected by a functioning RCD. As promised at... More

We are currently rowing around the UK 2,500 miles. After a gruelling 12 hour rower one of the crew went down with sever sea sickness, dehydration and hypothermia. After being picked up by the coastguard and spending a few hours in A&E we needed a great place to rest and recover before continuing. The Brewers arms was the perfect place... More

Stayed for one night on Saturday 25 October. Room was great, nice comfortable bed. Ensuite was ok, with shower cubicle which was a little on the small side. We couldnt get the TV to work, but wasnt really that bother. Must say the breakfast was lovely. Would recommend this place.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Brewers Arms is a 17th century grade 2 listed building in the centre of Brightlingsea. The B&B is situated in a separate, grade 2 listed, 19th century, refurbished building next door. It is well appointed and very cosy. Each guest will have a key to the front door on their room keyring, which allows for unrestricted access to the B&B and also provides security as only staff and guests can open the front door. With the pub in such close proximity there's no need to go anywhere else for a drink and our restaurant is now open for lunches only as well as breakfast for our guests. We have ironing facilities in the B&B. There is a carpark at the rear of the Pub main building which is fully covered by cctv. ... more   less
