Only a brief stay here in stormy December, but everything from the friendly and efficient welcome at Reception to the final check out and good-byes indicated that this hotel was quite a find. We took advantage of a "special offer" upgrade to a more spacious room, which had a wide expanse of window...well insulated against the gale outside...with a sea view and a standard of comfort and cleanliness which we could not fault. The only small failings were the lack of a room-safe (though there are security facilities at Reception) and the need for "Mind Your Head" signs on a couple of low beams over stairwells. If you are over 6 feet tall you will find out where these are needed without me telling you. The pool/spa area trusts guests to look after it themselves, as it is unattended by staff, and the rules about its use were obviously well observed and the whole area was clean and uncluttered. The hotel has enough tourist-leaflet literature available to keep any visitor well briefed on the area, and already had the 2014 Bexhill Guide in stock! There always seemed to be enough friendly staff around to attend to guests' needs.....the breakfast staff were efficient and attentive, and the range of food on offer was quite extensive enough to meet most tastes. The dining room had great sea views and no piped music, so the whole atmosphere was very pleasant. When you match the room cost against the range and quality of facilities offered, the Cooden Beach is extremely good value.
