The Chichester Hotel - Update

In these unprecedented times we again find ourselves having to make difficult decisions. After a period of welcoming reduced numbers of guests back to The Chichester Hotel and no events taking place, things are quickly getting back to something close to normality.

In the last eighteen months 95% of our events had to postpone due to the pandemic. We now have a period when many weddings and events are taking place within a short period of time.

It has been widely reported that for several reasons there is a massive shortage of staff in the hospitality sector we have therefore made the decision to close the hotel restaurant for the present time and focus on the events that we have sold.

We are currently offering complimentary breakfast items available from reception. Our bar is open daily, and the team will gladly recommend local takeaways or restaurants.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding - The Chichester Hotel Team

A 13th century moated farmhouse which still survives to this day

The Chichester Hotel is a charming and historic boutique venue which boasts a warm and friendly service for business and leisure travellers and the surrounding community. The hotel takes its name from Sir John de Chichestre who was the original occupant of Chichester Hall, a 13th century moated farmhouse which still survives to this day. Two of the farm buildings still stand and were renovated as the Essex Barn and the Stable Inn. This former farmhouse boasts 36 en suite bedrooms, a busy bar and restaurant and three event spaces that can be used for meetings, dinners, family celebrations and weddings. The hotel lies in the heart of the countryside district of Rochford and is rich in history, boasting numerous medieval churches.
