If you do like to be beside the seaside when eating out, you can't get a restaurant meal closer to the briny than this. I even ended up with a tan after lunching at an outside table!. My partner and I chose this hotel as the most convenient mid-point for meeting four of our friends. It turned out to be... More

We chose the hotel as it was equidistant between 3 couples and none of use were disappointed . 4 of us had platters 3 fish and one meat. At £12.99 the meal was excellent value. The meal comprised of smoked salmon, prawns and delicious mackerel pate along with homemade potato salad , mixed salad and bread. The sand which looked... More

Only a brief Friday overnight visit, so no time to try out all the facilities or put the restaurant through its paces. The good points: very pleasant and friendly staff, hotel clean and bright, room compact but comfortable, breezy situated in a residential neighbourhood near a railway station overlooking the sea. Not such good points: as I had to be... More

We had a family gathering centered at the Cooden Beach Hotel which, I think, everybody enjoyed. The Hotel Staff were welcoming,helpful, and friendly. The rooms generally clean and reasonably equipped. A really great location! There were a number of very minor incidents, such as wrong room numbers being given, some mix ups over food orders, and occasionally slow service (admittedly... More

We came for a family lunch (23 or us) for our son's 18th Birthday and from the initial booking with Debbie through to the end of the meal was faultless. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and the room was laid out beautifully and we were really looked after. The food was delicious and beautifully presented and... More

Booked 2 double rooms at short notice and confirmed we could take our dog. We were a bit nervous as we had not taken her away before. We had previously driven by the hotel and thought it had a fabulous location right on the beach. On arrival there was a mix up on our booking which was quickly and efficiently... More

I stay in lots of hotels. The Peninsula, Bangkok once gave me a £10 polo shirt on the occasion of my 50th visit and over £100,000 of spend. Perhaps they thought I'm a bit awkward and were sending a message. They're probably right. Anyway. My second stay at this hotel in Bexhill..... Superb, professional receptionist made me immediately welcome. I... More

Very enjoyable stay - staff very helpful and polite if slightly overwhelmed by numbers at times. Established hotel right on the Beach - when the weather is nice the Terrace is a must. Food is good and the service is excellent in all but the busiest moments Due to its location (Bexhill) the clientele tend towards the more senior citizen.... More

We have mixed feelings on our stay. Our room was quite expensive and while nice, was shabby in places and had not been properly cleaned. The pool and spa area was very shabby and not particularly clean, no towels were provided, and getting into the area was not exactly easy! The cooked breakfast was distinctly unimpressive; both the vegetarian sausage... More
