Booked this for an afternoon tea treat. I must admit I wasn't sure how it would be - bit what a lovely surprise. We had a window table looking out to the sea front. We ordered the celebration tea with came with a glass of prosseco. The tea choice was not all that extensive. However that was not really an... More

At the last moment, I had to bring my small dog with me for an overnight stay. The staff were very helpful and accommodating and made us all very welcome. The location of this hotel is hard to beat; overlooking the Bandstand with views to the pier one way and to Beachy Head the other. It is ideal if planning... More

Back at the Cumberland Hotel for a mon-fri mid week break with Abacus coaches of Lincolnshire. A friendly atmosphere and brilliant Staff all very helpful. Plenty of choice at mealtimes, sea views amazing and close to the Bandstand. Compared to some Hotels the Bar prices were very reasonable.

Visited the Cumberland Hotel with five friends for afternoon tea on Saturday 25th April. The tea was fabulous with two rounds of sandwiches each which consisted of egg and tomato, cucumber, smoked salmon and ham. We then had a scone each which came with jam and cream already on and three bits of cake each, coffee and walnut, carrot and... More

Traditional family owner hotel. Stayed the weekend and the dining room staff were excellent. Food was 'home cooked' rather than the 'plastic' food sometimes found in other hotels. Special diets easily catered for. Good location right on the seafront and just a few minutes walk from the town centre which has lots of lovely shops. Have been there before and... More

Booked late for a party of 5 for a cream tea on Mothers Day only the day before. Fabulous tea comprising a great variety of very fresh sandwiches (including smoked salmon and cream cheese), slices of different cakes, scones with jam and clotted cream and decorated with fresh fruit. We then had a bowl of fresh strawberries with more clotted... More

Having recommending the Cumberland to friends who organise large events following a Birthday party my wife and I had at the hotel 3 years ago, we spent last weekend at the Cumberland within a party of about 150 guests. We were relieved at the efficiency of the staff in catering for so many at one sitting on Friday and Saturday... More
