We've discovered we are lucky enough to have a wonderful restaurant locally. We enjoyed fresh, beautifully cooked cuisine. While Andre and Harriet made us very welcome and provided such attentive service. Thank you to all at The Cooden Beach for making our evening, we shall return!

Just spent a lovely relaxing birthday weekend in the Hotel. My parents live opposite so we've been in the Cooden Tavern to eat a few times and it was superb. This was the 1st time we had stayed in the hotel and it was great. The room was ideal for what we wanted and very quiet. There was a party... More

I recently made my first visit to this hotel in order to dine there on a Sunday evening. Not many places serve meals on Sunday evenings but, with this one open, they don't need to! Very attractively laid out room, nicely balanced menu, excellently cooked food, and impeccable service from Andre and Stephanie. I heartily recommend it and look forward... More

Andre looked after us from the moment we arrived, knowledgable & attentive. Attention to detail from the bar staff impressive. Food good & varied.. round of applause to the young chef whom we meet after the lunch. Thank you all for making it such a memorable lunch.

I could not have wished to have stayed at a more friendly, caring or welcoming hotel. Nothing was too much trouble either for me or my little dog, who was also made very welcome. The staff were all exceptionally kind and helpful, and knowledgeable about the area. I ate in both restaurants and the meals are excellent. There is also... More

Stayed two nights in this hotel, situated fight by the beach. It has gym, swimming pool, bars, decent restaurant and everything else I could want. My room was spacious, clean, well furnished and had a big en suite bathroom. Breakfast was included and was lovely. Only drawback is it can be noisy: they often have music and the train station...

Our wedding day was organised professionally, promptly and with no surprises. Thank you very much Jenny and Jackie for your help. Also an enormous thanks to Chris for his service on the day. I can't recommend the Cooden Beach enough as a wedding venue.
