We had an upgrade to a seaview and actually sat out on Tuesday morning on the balcony. Very helpful, professional and friendly staff and we had dinner on the Sunday evening which was... More

We had not stayed at The Cumberland before, or even visited Bournemouth. Following a recent weekend visit, we want to return! From a friendly and organised Reception desk, though cheerful housekeeping staff and a knowledgeable Dining team, the staff were peerless in making us feel welcome and relaxed. The building itself is attractive with the interior décor finding a charming... More

15th November My wife and I spent another weekend at the Cumberland Hotel Bournemouth, again we were greeted by very polite and professional receptionist.

We would definitely recommend staying... More

We have been staying at the Cumberland for many years , I think our first trip for a short break was in 2007. The Hotel is an absolute gem. I totally look forward to our short winter breaks we have. The food is wonderful and the bar is not overpriced like most hotels, and a beautiful place to relax. A... More

We have recently stayed for a fourth time. We had the most delightful sea view rooms with balcony. A hotel which is very good value for money with friendly, very professional Management and staff; other hotels I've stayed in could take note of the excellent teamwork that seems to be in evidence. Dinner was delicious (my Sister and I are... More

Stayed there over the weekend and it is a very nice hotel right in from of the sea. 10 minute walk to town and the pier. The room was small and comfy. The breakfast was really nice, a buffet, but with lots of options. The staff was really helpful. Car parking is a little tricky because the parking lot is... More
