The best hotel by far, should be 5+Stars

Wonderful welcome from the owner, and then guided to a perfectly presented room, all the facilities you could want, and everything spotlessly clean.
The bed was so comfortable you will want one for yourself... So a perfect nights sleep followed.
The breakfast for me was the best I've had all year and definitely set me up for the day.
The Chudley is my first port of call if I'm in the area, and I would recommend to all. Read more

Lovely traditional guest house. We stayed for 3 nights in a twin bedded room. The hosts Carol and Peter were very hospitable. The room was spotless along with the en suite.

Went to lie down on the bed just to close my eyes and the next thing 8 hours had flown past -so comfortable especially for my husband and I as we both have back problems.

A friendly hotel offering quality, value for money, accommodation.

We were attending a birthday party at another, nearby, hotel and after reading the reviews for that hotel looked elsewhere and decided on the Chudleigh. When we arrived we were warmly greeted by the owners and shown to our room. The room was spotlessly clean and perfect for our needs. The en-suite bathroom looked as if it had recently been renovated and again was spotlessly clean with excellent facilities. All in all, the accommodation was of very good quality. Read more

Pure Perfection

I stayed at the Chudleigh for four nights. I've stayed in many hotels, but this one is special. The atmosphere is warm, friendly, and relaxing. Breakfast is nothing short of perfect. There are multiple choices all cooked to order and served very quickly. The room I occupied was also very special. The decor was restful and perfectly coordinated and the furniture and soft furnishings of high quality. The en suite was also in keeping with the high standards achieved throughout the hotel.

Stayed for 2 nights whilst visiting family in Clacton. The outside of the Chudleigh has the most beautiful, striking flowers and hanging baskets.

Breakfast was delicious and the menu had lots of choice. Location was great too, just a stone's throw from the pier and attractions. We very much look forward to going back. Read more

We came to stay at Chudleigh as friends were getting married at the Kingscliff Hotel. I chose this hotel as the reviews were excellent and were the best in the area. It turns out that I made the right choice as other wedding guests complained about the hotels they had chosen to stay in!
Our room had a sofa in it, a dresser and chair which meant that I didn't to bend over the sink in the bathroom to apply my make up for the wedding. Tea/coffee/biscuits in our room was a lovely touch. Read more

What a Gem!

Every aspect of our stay was the owner's priority. The outside was beautiful and the welcome very friendly. Our room was large and very well decorated and they had thought of everything we were likely to need.
You are so close to everything - 1 minute walk to the right and you are at the promenade and 1 minute walk to the left and you are in the town centre.
The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were nice and quiet.
The breakfast was excellent and Lindsay, who took our order, was lov Read more

Highly Recommended

My wife and I were looking for somewhere to stay in Clacton-on-sea while we were visiting relatives and friends in the area.We were more than pleased that we chose the Chudleigh Hotel,because it ticked all the right boxes.Peter and Carol were very helpful all the time we were there,and the breakfast was excellent,they even made us up a packed lunch for our journey home when we had to leave early,due to family commitments Read more

Likes?
The hotel was central to all the attractions,and parking was also catered for,with an agreement with a local business.the rooms were to an excellent standard
Dislikes?
We both felt quilts would be a better idea than blankets,they are much easier.

Friendly, quiet and convenient

Stayed one night at the Chudleigh, arriving in the early evening. We had a family room, which consisted of a double bed, two single beds, a bath/sink room and toilet/shower room. Tea and coffee facilities are provided in the room.
A floor standing fan was also provided, which was good as we visited on the hottest day of the year.
Breakfast was served from 08:30 and consisted of cereals, yoghurts, full English, and croissants - so my kids were very happy with that. Read more

Likes?
The rooms are nice.
The hotel is pleasantly decorated.
The hotel has a private car park.
The staff are very friendly.
The hotel is 3 minutes from the sea-front.
Free wireless.
Dislikes?
Small point - the curtains are not quite dark enough, so my young kids both woke up quite early! But that is to be expected in summer.

great stay at a lovely b&b

A very friendly welcome when we arrived, good security entrance system so no one can get in that shouldn't. Lovely room, very comfortable bed. Nice bathroom with shower gel etc and beautiful white cotton sheets large enough to wrap around you. Very nice breakfast and as much as you want. Great stay can't praise enough.

This is the best of 3 hotels that we have stayed at in Clacton

Lovely well decorated hotel. Our room and bathroom were spotless and smelt fresh and clean. Lots of extras in the room such as a good selection of teas, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits, bottle of water and chocolates each day. Other extras included tissues, shoe shine and sewing kit. In the bathroom were good quality soaps, shampoo and body wash as well as a shower cap. And unlike other hotels the TV worked well. Read more

The hotel was exceptionally clean and was very comfortable.
Dislikes?
We rated the friendliness as only 'good' instead of 'excellent'. It might sound strange because it was too friendly. At breakfast the banter and laughter was too overwhelming.

Like sleeping at your nan's house! Home from home

The Chudleigh was the only B&B in this area that had a family room big enough for us & our 3 children. We were pleasantly surprised at how close it was to the sea front and how the owners were. The rooms were spotlessly clean with a good stock of complimentary drinks and biscuits, fluffy towels and homely decor. Lovely! It was like going to stay at your nanas for the night, all homely and cosy! Read more

Thank you for your review and comments. We would be very happy to welcome the Boyle family at The Chudleigh again.

The breakfast's were AMAZING! Freshly cooked to order, beautiful quality ingredients and served quickly and very politely. Mmmm yummy! The owners were so accomodating, making sure we had enough toast.

I can't fault the Chudleigh, the lady owner was telling us she has owned the B&B for 46years and i can see why.
