Relais Cooden Beach Hotel - A Captivating Coastal Escape

July 12th, 2023

Nestled along the exquisite 75km scenic coastline of East Sussex, the Cooden Beach Hotel beckons travellers seeking a serene seaside escape.

Part of the Relais portfolio, this hidden gem offers a perfect blend of old world elegance, modern comforts, and breathtaking views, making it an ideal destination for both relaxation and exploration. With convenient direct trains from London Victoria, award-winning local vineyards, and nearby traditional British seaside towns, the Cooden Beach Hotel guarantees an unforgettable experience for discerning travellers.

Stepping off the train from London Victoria, a jaunty journey that effortlessly transports you from the bustling capital to this idyllic coastal haven, we found ourselves captivated by the striking beauty that surrounds the Cooden Beach Hotel.

Situated mere moments away from the train station, the hotel boasts a picturesque setting overlooking the shimmering English Channel. The grand period architecture, lovingly restored and maintained, immediately sets the tone for an elegant and relaxing retreat.

The Cooden Beach Hotel offers a variety of immaculately refurbished rooms, each exuding its own distinct blend of charm. From cosy single rooms to luxurious suites, the accommodation caters to every traveller's preferences. We had the pleasure of staying in one of their perfectly appointed sea-view rooms, and waking up to the sight of the shimmering sea lapping against the shore was nothing short of magical.

The distinguishing feature of the hotel are the people who work there to make your visit so special. Nothing was too much trouble, we were welcomed as part of the family and really were reluctant to leave. From the warmth of the general manager to the staff on the terrace, everyone is a credit to the hotel.

The room was beautifully furnished, boasting a harmonious blend of modern luxury and classic coastal aesthetics. The sumptuously adorned spacious king beds and thoughtfully curated amenities ensured a peaceful night's sleep.

It’s also the perfect wedding venue with the immaculately curated gardens with pretty gazebo and perfect celebration area scenario.

One of the highlights of our stay was the exceptional dining experience at the Cooden Beach Hotel. The hotel's restaurant, with its panoramic views of the sea, provided a stunning backdrop for indulging in locally sourced culinary delights. The menu showcased a tantalising array of inspired ingredients, expertly crafted into delectable dishes.

Whether savouring local fishermen’s fresh catch of the day or relishing in the richness of locally reared meats, each plate was a celebration of the region's gastronomic treasures.

To complement the meal, the extensive wine list featured a selection of captivating wines, including those from the nearby vineyards including the award winning Rathfinney Estate Classic Cuvee.

We definitely fell in love with the Sussex coast thanks to the boutique backdrop of the Cooden Beach Hotel and hope to be back to visit very soon.

Room rates for a seascape double room on bed and breakfast start from £280 per night. For bookings please visit www.therelaisretreats.com or email reception@therelaiscoodenbeach.com
