firstly reception staff very friendly and accommodating, I enquired if we could leave our car in the car park as we were early, she then checked and found our room was ready so we booked in 3 hrs early. The decor of the reception and pubic areas were very impressive. Our sea view room was clean spacious and comfortable and... More

Spent 2 nights at this hotel and paid in advance for evening meals in the restaurant mainly due to the excellent reports on trip advisor. This was a very bad mistake - the first night the starter was rubbery and tasteless prawns on a skewer they had clearly been sitting for a very long time, we sent it back and... More

This was not our first visit to the Cumberland Hotel. The hotel is in a great location overlooking the sea. The décor is art deco and very attractive, The sea facing rooms are great with balconies. The staff are very friendly. We were on a package that included a three course meal for dinner and also a buffet breakfast. On... More

Stayed for two nights in a sea view room. I think it best to pay the premium for the view and the room was fine. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, the breakfasts good and the one evening meal we took at the hotel was enjoyable. An interesting hotel in a good quiet location for a stroll in... More

Another enjoyable wedding anniversary. Overall very good, was a little disappointed with the choice of the meals in the brasserie. The quality of the food as always very good, but limited. Room very comfortable, beds very sleepworthy. Staff extremely helpful and polite and always with a smile. This is about our fifth visit to the Cumberland and it will not... More

Just stayed here for two nights. Overall a lovely visit. Staff were superb in all areas of the hotel. Friendly, attentive, helpful. Dined on Sunday evening, food was very nice. Lounge areas were comfortable and relaxing. The only slight let down for me was the bed. It was a double which is ok, but as I am 6ft2 my feet... More

Having just enjoyed all the excitement of our daughter's wedding we decided to have a couple of nights away to recover. I spotted a good deal at the Cumberland for DBB on the first night and just B&B on the second. This is a lovely Art Deco hotel up on the East Cliff in Bournemouth with views out over the... More

Bit late putting this review in but our daughters wedding took place here. I have to say we were very impressed with the service, the attention to detail, the food and generally the all round organisation. We now have such lovely memories of our daughters big day. All wedding guests who stayed overnight at the hotel had no complaints.

Stayed with friends during half term, the hotel matched online deal, which was fantastic for money. Staff were very accommodating from the moment we arrived until we checked out, the duty manager even came to our room to assist with wi-fi issues. Food was very good standard, we enjoyed the 2for1 cocktail offer before our 3 course meal. We will... More
