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

We had a lovely meal on Saturday to celebrate my birthday- we have eaten here frequently but it was a first for our 7 guests. The food was top class, reasonably priced with top class service from Andre, our waiter for the evening. Highly recommend whether for a celebration or a weekend away!

I attended a wedding at Cooden Beach in the summer 2014 and absolutely loved the location and the quality of food/drink. Based on this I couldn't wait to treat my mum to afternoon tea for her birthday today. I only mentioned upon booking the meaning for our visit, and without request we arrived today to a table all decorated and... More

We live about 15-20 miles away, so sadly this not quite our "local" however we come here fairly regularly and find the "bar meals" in the pub section to be consistently good and reasonably priced. Sunday lunch in the main restaurant is also a favourite. A lovely spot, nice surroundings, pleasantly quiet (normaly) with good service and a fresh cooked... More

We visit this little beachside gem throughout the year when we walk our dogs on Cooden Beach at low tide. We've always loved the outdoor restaurant and bar area set right on the beach where you can enjoy a drink snack or full-blown meal. The staff welcome dogs too, even in the bars - and often bring along a biscuit... More

Having stayed at the hotel before with our dog, they take dogs & do not charge. Decided to take a short break away to blow away the winter blues, the location of the hotel will do this. As they say its the hotel on the beach it is, good walks before & after fine meals. Clean, comfortable hotel, good staff,... More

Brief overnight stay but would recommend the hotel and the staff were lovely. I am sure in the summer it would be very busy but I stayed on a Sunday in December and had a very good price for the room - perfect for what I needed. Ample parking and you are on the beach and I would definitely go... More

We visited this Hotel for Sunday lunch which is £17.00 for two courses and £20.00 for three courses. This was our second visit on a Sunday and, unfortunately, today was nowhere near as good as previously. Our starters were fine, came out very quickly after we had given our order so I would imagine they had been prepared earlier. The... More

We only booked a week before and availability was limited but the rooms were good enough and it looked like there were some lovely ones, so will book sooner next time. Previous reviews have commented on the service of the staff. In our experience, some were fantastic and I would particularly call out Ali on reception and the breakfast staff... More

Thank you for your review, it is unfortunate your visit coincided with one of the rare functions we hold in The Cooden Tavern which involved closing for 2 hours last afternoon to prepare for the evening. The person who was unable to help you in the bar was a member of the reception team who was cashing up at the... More
