I had never experienced a wedding in a 'hotel', and as a French person I have still to understand why we call the main meal 'the wedding breakfast', but I would it again. I was the mother of the bride and wanted this to be right for all. Everything we requested from the tables set up, to the presentation of... More

Location was ideal, seafront central to all areas. Opposite bandstand, had a room with sea-view and balcony. The room was very small, but had recently been re-furbished and was furnished to a very good standard, bathroom was sparkling clean and modern. Breakfast was plentiful and well cooked, good choice, catered for all tastes. The dining staff were most efficient and... More

Stayed for a night with my boyfriend while watching the Eastbourne Airshow, let us store our luggage there before and after checking in and out which was very helpful. Room was very clean, beds comfortable, bathroom a little small and the water pressure on the shower wasn't too great but the bath was comfortable. The furniture was dated and some... More

We are a group of five adult family members and spent an August weekend (two nights) at The Cumberland Hotel, Eastbourne. The hotel is an imposing older building that is situated directly on the seafront opposite the Bandstand. This is an ideal location as there are various concerts (mainly tribute acts) playing at the bandstand throughout the summer season. One... More

Very clean and quiet room at the back of the hotel, yes the furniture is dated but I cant see a problem with it. It was fully functional. The bathroom spotless and clean smelling, as was the linen. The staff willing... More

had a great time at this hotel. It lives up to its Star rating. The rooms are looking a little tired, but are clean and comfortable. The location is excellent, on the seafront, opposite to the Bandstand, and 5 minutes walk from the pier. The best feature however is the staff who are always cheerful and helpful. Minor downsides are... More

We attended our friends wedding here this weekend. The Cumberland hotel staff did a wonderful job. The food, drink, service, atmosphere was all brilliant. Well done to all staff at the hotel. Well worth a visit. Eastbourne on the Sunshine Coast not to be missed.
