The staff were courteous and the main course of lemon sole was delicious, but the desserts (panna cotta and cheesecake) were underwhelming, and the...

Don't expect fantastic sea views from the rooms or brilliant food in the restaurant but do expect a wonderful location with tables by the beach for lunch and drinks. If you're going to Bexhill or nearby you'd be daft to stay elsewhere.

Following your previous correspodence and photographs directly to us we can confirm that the issue in the showed has now been rectified. The quirky shapes of an older building often lead to sloping ceilings and we appreciate that for a tall person this is not always ideal. We are most sorry your co worker had this experience.

Only 1 night but we enjoyed a very pleasant and comfortable stay. A little on the expensive side but the complimentary upgrade to the bridal suite served to compensate! Room was clean, staff were efficient and courteous and the meals (evening and breakfast) were of a high standard. We would happily stay again in this hotel. Thank you, Malcolm Clark

I needed somewhere to lay my head for two nights. I was fortunate to choose Cooden Beach Hotel as I was very comfortable in my single room. The breakfast was delicious and the ambience delightful. The reception staff were particularly pleasant.
