We stayed here through a lastminute.com deal, and found it to be excellent value for money. I suspect we paid the cheapest rate possible, as we stayed mid-week in November.

The hotel’s art déco theme has been tastefully finished and complimented by the hotel’s friendly, courteous staff. Our Executive room was well furnished with comfy leather sofas, glass table and flat screen tv. It was decorated... More

Our daughter is at university in Bournemouth, so it has been our pleasure to try out a few different hotels when visiting her. We stayed one night at the Cumberland, choosing it as it is very close to her house, the photos of the bar and restaurant looked great, and the price was a real bargain! Reception check in was...
