I booked on booking.com. The pictures looked nice, large bed, big tv and it said it had a balcony. Only a couple weeks before we arrived I read something on trip advisor that said it was a shared balcony. Booking.com said nothing of this. I called the hotel to check about payment and I spoke to Tanya, she was very... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night. It scored a good three mark rating on my scale - it is clean, the service was helpful and polite. However, it is fairly old, the floors are especially squeaky and we could hear every step that our upstairs neighbours were making. The full English breakfast was really good and generous. Another...

We booked this hotel via booking.com. We went by the pictures that were on the site and the fact that it had parking. Unfortunately both were misleading. The parking is to the side and is permit street parking, this was not made clear until booking in. The room was redecorated (still smelt strongly of contract gloss paint) but was sadly... More

This year we booked to avoid the tennis and were extremely pleased with our choice of the Cumberland. All of the staff seem only to pleased to be of service. We had a twin room with a sea view which was very roomy, although you needed to be a bit of a contortionist to get to the toilet roll whilst... More

if you are looking for luxury - then do not stay her. BUT, if you are looking for a good value very central hotel only for a night's stay then this is for you. The breakfast is average. Bedrooms is outdated. Plus side - right opposite the beach and promenade. Very affordable.

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
