The Relais Cooden Beach

Rated 8.2 in 1555 reviews. 41 rooms.


The hotel had a major extension and refurbishment programme at the end of 2016 and into early 2017 - including a large new Brasserie with glass doors opening onto the beach, extension to the beach terrace (it is right on the beach), adding a Gin Palace, full refurbishment of all the bedrooms, refitted changing rooms in the Leisure Club and more.

The The Relais Cooden Beach is in Bexhill, East Sussex - a unique award-winning hotel that is located directly on the beach. Just take a step from the terrace to start a wonderful walk along the coastline!

We’re offering a range of accommodation and dining experiences - including the Stylish Rally Bar and Restaurant. Wherever you choose to relax, you are only a few steps away from the beach and there are no roads to cross to get there!

Whether you are returning from a great day out, saying ‘I do’, or finishing a meeting in one of our conference rooms, you can enjoy stunning views whilst relaxing with a delicious meal.

Once the redesign is complete, all 45 rooms will have been entirely refurbished, including, five new Veranda Suites with private terraces. A number of new public spaces and dining concepts, which reflects the relaxed yet sophisticated new interiors and style of the hotel are now revealed. Our Leisure Club will remain closed for the refurbishment and we look forward to revealing our new wellness centre and treatment rooms later in the year.

Our Brasserie on the Beach is open for breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. There is also a Beach Terrace and Cafe Bar which are great spots for an informal drink and bite to eat.

Sea Cottage treatment room is located adjacent to the hotel and offers a full range of treatments. If you are a golfer, you will love our neighbouring Golf Club - an 18-hole Lynx course that is well known in East Sussex.

We would love to host your wedding at the hotel. Whether your day has a beach theme, a traditional feel or a bespoke style of your own, the views across the sea will create a special ambience.

We look forward to welcoming you at The The Relais Cooden Beach in Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex...
