We opted for a three day break starting on the day the storm raged up the channel. We were in a sea view room with balcony so were able to enjoy the storm from the comfort of our room. This was our second visit to the Cumberland, the first was after a move across from the Royale last November after... More

Location was ideal, a shortish walk to the town and on the coast. Our room gave us lovely views across the bay, a small balcony that would be perfect on a summers evening but still very enjoyable in February. I would say the room, decor and fittings are a little tired and in the public rooms the lighting is too... More

Excellent , ultra clean, very friendly helpful staff, beautiful room, food varied in choice and excellently cooked well presented. Very relaxing ambiance throughout hotel. Within walking distance of Bournemouth town center. For those who dont want to walk catch the 33 bus to and from town.( Poole Sandbanks is 4miles along the prom for a longer walk.)

We have just had another enjoyable weekend at the Cumberland,the staff are always very friendly and helpful. Our stay included a three course evening meal which was lovely and as usual the breakfast is always at a high quality. We are looking forward to booking again soon.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights due to business trip. Seems that room size is totally different. Some are big, but others are small. Also some rooms don't have bathtub. Hotel offers free WIFI, but the signal was quite weak.. Maybe my room was a bit far from access point? Not sure, but it was a bit stress... More

I booked this hotel as a last minute decision coming from working as a manager in a hotel myself where I work incredibly long hours and really needed my break with my partner. First of all I have to mention the staff were friendly and polite, however this is only the beginning. We got to our room and it seemed... More

Booked directly with Oceana Hotels - chain that owns three hotels in row on East Overcliff Drive - this one and Suncliff and Cliffeside plus the Best Western Hotel Royale. Previously stayed at Suncliff and most admit The Cumberland is slightly better inside reception areas and bedrooms but Suncliffe offers bar with Sky Sports that you can utilise regardless of...

Took up offer of DBB in standard room (was situated at rear of hotel, overlooking the car park) Quite noisy from the heating/air con outside window. Comfy bed. Needed a bath mat as when having shower bottom of bath quite slippery. Enjoyed a lovey meal and really enjoyed the cocktails, especially the 'Screaming Orgasm" !!

We'd booked via Booking.com to stay at the Cliffeside Hotel, for a high floor room with breakfast, and parking. I received a call from the Oceana group to advise that the Cliffeside was closed for refurbishment (not sure why it was being advertised as available on Booking.com), so we had been 'upgraded' to the neighbouring Cumberland Hotel, at no extra...
