I've just been back to the Cooden Beach, having first been 7 or 8 years back and I do like this place. The location for a start is superb - right on the beach and on the edge of Bexhill, but with nothing much to the west apart from miles of beach back to Eastbourne. If you prefer to travel... More

We have always talked about the Cooden Beach Hotel,so I decided to book and that was July 26th which was yesterday. The choice on the Menu was just right. We had a three course meal, the starters were so well presented, my wife had edible flowers. The main we both chose fish, I had Sea Bream with Rissotto,Celeriac and my... More

Reading some of the reviews I can understand why there are negative comments. It's certainly dated and the staff are questionable. Again attending a wedding you need access to your room by midday and this should be guaranteed. We had a great time the service food and drinks we're all spot on location is fantastic and I would go again... More

We visited for an evening meal, not an overnight stay. We loved the location, inside of the hotel is nothing too special. There was a wedding going on in the function room next door, so the music was loud through into the restaurant, not too much of an issue but might have been nice for them to mention it when... More

A large family party visited for lunch ( 14) . Food was just about average, poorly presented, and overpriced for the standard we received. Slow Service in the restaurant too. I was embarrassed as it was my treat to my family. Very rude receptionist querying my booking and deposit. waving her hand at me to be quiet! Will never return... More

We are very saddened to read your review, we are trying to get to the bottom of the receptionist issue. We think this is a Sunday Carvery Lunch booking, the starters and desserts are served to your table but he main course is a carvery and collected by yourselves from the carvery station so not 'presented' as a meal would...

We visited Cooden Beach for an evening meal. The location was truly stunning (it being right on the beach). The view from our table was stunning. The service provided by the staff was both proffesional and friendly. We only had a main course but it was superb. Excellent presentation and it was all fantastically cooked (even the broccoli was tasty).... More

This hotel has the potential to be good .... swish,even.But,sadly it is let down by "attitude" of some staff (an earlier review said receptionist rude ... and can believe this .... certainly brusque) and unfortunate cost cutting which has resulted in cheap furnishings ... loads of care home type chairs .... nothing particularly comfortable including in bedroom .... bargain offer...

It is with great sadness I read your review. The hotel was purchased by the present owner 10 years ago, there was so much wrong at the time of purchase it really has been a case of starting again with everything. Redecorating, new carpets throughout the entire hotel (and far from bargain carpets!) was a priority, the décor is refreshed... More

Firstly congratulations to your Mum on reaching her 101st birthday, quite an achievement. All of our rooms in the main building are only accessed via stairs so our disabled rooms were located in our 'Sea House' annexe on the ground floor. The Sea House is accessed via a set of steps or a ramp, our maintenance department are aware of... More
