Stayed at this hotel Sunday night We arrived early for the air show and enquired when our room would be available. It was ready early 1.00 pm so we were able to view air show from our balcony. Our room was very big and clean Would definitely stay here again especially in a room with a balcony

The food served was delicious (a buffet lunch) and fed us all very well. We had our own hosts and they tended to our every need. The... More

I booked initially one night at The Cumberland to watch the Air Show from the poolside. Though clearly casual staff have to be bought in for such busy occasions I was very impressed how all the staff coped with the mass of people and requests with a smile. All very courteous and pleasant. Drinks and food are well priced also.... More

We booked a three night stay with a sea view from the Airshow. Bed huge, room tired and not cleaned thoroughly. Housekeeping didn't make the room up before 3pm any day. Dinner great, staff friendly and kind. Great value for money. Unable to use the garden or balcony due to package day guests - as a resident and having booked... More

This hotel was a refreshing change from your usual seaside bed and breakfast - could not fault the atmosphere or staff and the ventana restaurant served delicious food the one night we used it. We visited the suncliff next door for dining most nights as the menu more suited our needs as the cumberland food was a bit fancy for... More

A reserved table on their terrace for the whole day with perfect views of the flight pass. The service was impeccable, the food superb, the value excellent, the ambiance... More

Just spent 4 nights at this hotel. Walked in and could not believe it was only a 3 star hotel, definately worthy of being a 4 star or even 5 star. Staff were so friendly and helpful especially as my friend had a broken foot. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and with so many mirrors around this can not be an... More
