Attended a masonic ladies night here last night, hotel was brilliant, food excellent, waiting staff on the ball, but not in your face, Sharon on the bar, the jewel in the crown. Hotel management couldn't do enough to help. An excellent venue and I recommend to anyone, if you want a function, go here you can't go wrong.

Just got back from having 4 nights 3 days at the Cumberland Hotel. Absolutely incredible views over the sea. The staff were very friendly and helpful and I met some lovely people along the way. Will definitely be returning to the Cumberland Hotel hopefully next time for a bit of a longer stay.

Took my elderly mother and father for afternoon tea. We also had our children, aged 9 and 11 with us. When I phoned to enquire/book I asked if I could have 4 adult afternoon teas, and then add some plain ham and cheese sandwiches to it for the children as they are a bit fussy. They were really helpful and... More

I recently had my 30th birthday at the Cumberland hotel. The original plan was to have this party at home but at the last minute this was no longer a viable option and thankfully the Cumberland was able to fit us (about 20 people) in their Sun Lounge area, which has great views of the sea and has a very...

Went to this hotel for a works function. We had a three course meal , all three courses were poor . Not worth the money and the service was slow. Will not be returning or recommending this hotel to friends or family!

We had our Wedding reception here and it was perfect! The room where it was held was beautifully decorated and the staff were very well organised throughout the whole event. We had a buffet for our guests which was lovely. Our room was the Queen Victoria suite. It has been recently refurbished. The bathroom was very large and the bed... More

We went here for an afternoon tea which was bought as a gift for a 70th Birthday. When we arrived the staff were busy and told us to wait. They then set up a table right next to the entrance door and people were walking past us the whole time. The family member who had paid for this had told... More

Spent one night at this hotel, had seaview room overlooking the Eastbourne Bandstand and enjoyed watching and listening to Johnny Cash Tribute Band from our room. Comfortable room, however bed needs replacing (Room 315). Very friendly, helpful staff.
