Great weekend away with a girlfriend to shop and visit the Christmas Market. Just a 10 minute easy walk to town. Our twin room was quite small but very clean and comfortable. On the Saturday there was a wedding and a letter was placed in our room to advise that it could be noisy that evening, it was a little... More

A wonderful Art Deco hotel with warm, friendly and helpful staff. A good menu choice, tasty food and something different each day. We were upgraded to a balcony sea view room with wonderful sea views. We felt really relaxed and comfortable and were sorry to leave. It was good to see the manager, making time to talk to the guests... More

Just back from a two night spa break with dinner included on both nights. The public areas are great, not only for the "art deco" setting but at this time of the year they are beautifully decorated for Christmas. The staff and management were all friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. We had two good dinners with plenty of choice and ample... More

We had a really good two days away at this great hotel. It did help that the weather was sunny and no rain (until back home). The food was above average as were the excellent staff. Try as I can I cannot say anything else about it - Thank you very much

My last visit to The Cumberland was almost 50 years ago. The "feel" of the place is even better than I remember. Regrettably, my partner and I were only there for one night on a deal but we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff could not have been more cheerful and helpful and the food was excellent. The 3 course... More

A I live in Dorset and travel a lot with my work. However on this occasion I wanted to arrange for my 87 year old mother with very limited mobility from Cheshire to come for a seaside holiday in Bournemouth. This is something we were quite anxious about as she lives in an Assisted Living arrangement which is custom built,... More

Excellent. Nothing to fault at all. All staff were so helpful and friendly. Walking distance of town. Wish stay was longer so we could have enjoyed more. Lovely Christmas atmosphere. We will be returning.

Stayed for one night as was seeing a gig at The Pavilion. This hotel takes your breath away. Art Deco inside and like being in a 1950's film, it was so glamorous. Staff more than friendly . Gorgeous rooms that were spotless. Over looking the outside pool and the beach. This hotel was great value for money . Breakfast was... More
