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

Drinks are a reasonable price for this area and even though we went at the beginning of March the overal price was excellent as there were about 140 of... More

Just attended a businesswomen's luncheon at the Cumberland. I am a fanatic about hot food and I have to congratulate the chef's on serving my meal, which was one of the last to come out, piping hot. It was delicious and I shall recommend the hotel to my friends and colleagues. The staff were attentive and even though the service... More

Having stayed at the Cumberland several times it's been nice to see that recent refurbishment has improved what was a typically Edwardian hotel that was fraying round the edges. The staff have always been helpful and pleasant and service is prompt and polite. Rooms tend to be a bit cold in the winter as there is no double glazing on... More

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.
