I stayed here for a period of 5 nights on business. The location is right next to the sea (some rooms have sea views) and is in a quiet area however I can imagine it being a little manic busy during the summer months. The hotel itself looks impressive as its a nice old building. The staff were pretty helpful... More

First went to the hotel on 4th April 2015 and were so impressed we have just done another night on 12th April. The location is right by the sea, so very pleasant walks along the seashore after an excellent fish and chips lunch in the hotel. Then use of the gym, pool, steam room and sauna before dinner. Our rooms... More

Stayed one night found the room very clean. Bed comfortable. Facilities very good. Breakfast excellent. The only dissapointment was there was no hairdryer in the room. Apart from that you can't fault the hotel and staff.

We stopped here for morning coffee while driving along to Bexhill. Nice coffee, pleasant staff and a relaxed atmosphere. Unhurried in a great location. We have visited before and will visit again. Great place.

We stayed here for two nights for a family wedding. Our room had a sea view and, whilst furniture was slightly dated it was clean and comfortable. The bed had memory foam mattress which was very comfortable. Bathroom was good an there was tea/coffee/biscuits in the room...would be nice to have bottled water. The wedding reception was held at the... More

A very nice hotel not overly modern really but with very friendly and helpful staff at reception and in the dining room. The view from the dining room window out to sea is fabulous. Our room was adequate considering we had an extra bed in for our 11 yr old but it was stuffy and we had to keep the... More

Thank you for your review and comments. We do consider ourselves to be a traditional comfortable rather than modern hotel. We have noted your comments about the shower and passed them to our maintenance department. A lot of guests use the train as it is nearby and provides easy access to Bexhill, Hastings, Eastbourne and Brighton. More

We made our second visit to the Cooden Beach for their Sunday carvery. The starters arrived very quickly and my Cray fish tail cocktail was very nice. The carvery offers a good range of meats and vegetables. There is also a table of condiments. The overall quality is very good, the only small gripe is that the roast potatoes are... More

Reviews of the restaurant here seem to be mixed, but we found it a pleasant experience. Four of us had a small family celebration dinner on a recent Friday evening, and although we expected the restaurant to be full (it's not very large) this was not the case. The staff were friendly and helpful, attentive without being intrusive. The food... More

My wife and I booked a four night deal at this hotel. It was our Golden Wedding but we just wanted a quiet break near to family. We were a bit hesitant to book as it is 3 star, however the location was perfect for us being right by the sea. We certainly do not regret our choice, the accommodation... More

Restaurant is set in a beautiful hotel setting - almost on the beach in this popular seaside resort. However, the 'main' restaurant staff lacked personality! Whilst I understand they are very busy indeed and probably on minimum wage, they could make so much more of their jobs if they smiled and looked as though they wanted to be there! They... More
