I only stay here a night or two a year when visiting friends and find the location, close to the train station and right by the beach, great. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Whilst I have never had dinner there, breakfast is always good, as are the conditions of the dining room and lounges. The rooms could do...

Very helpful reception. Rooms good and shower easy to use and strong. Breakfast had excellent choice and I was grateful for the tip from waitress about the very tasty sausages which I was about to miss out on ! Excellent location obviously as right next to beach. Many thanks.

Thank you for your great review, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us and took the advise to taste our sausages, they are from a local butcher and are award winning so a shame to miss out.

The staff at the hotel are very helpful and friendly. The wheelchair accessible room was ideal for our needs and the bathroom was very easy for us to use with the wheelchair. The food at breakfast was a very high standard. The location of this hotel is perfect, just across the road from the station and right on the beach....

Superb stay at Cooden Beach. Staff are amazing, breakfast and dinner were both top notch. Philomena in the breakfast room was friendly and attentive every morning.

The staff were friendly and the rooms were nice and quite spacious. An iron/board in the wardrobe which is always helpful.

Very comfortable and well equipped hotel in a lovely beachside location. We only stayed the one night following the wedding and reception and did not use the restaurant. However the full English breakfast was excellent and all the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. I would recommend this hotel for a nice relaxing weekend by the sea.

We went here today for a wake, and it was a lovely hotel, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was lovely, and overall it was a nice experience, obviously would have been nicer if it was on different circumstances. But would recommend.
