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.

My daughter married here at the weekend and thanks to Elaine and her band of very hard working staff it all went off without a hitch. We took over the whole hotel for two days and they carried out all our wishes. I can't thank them enough and would highly recommend that if you are looking for a wedding venue... More

Extremely friendly staff, good food at a reasonable price - wish we'd eaten here more often - plus very sensitive to the needs of elderly guests (one of whom was in my party). Lovely, roomy old building filled with cheerful coach party guests. A good few days was spent!

We stayed at this hotel in a standard seafront room in mid June. The room was a bit dated and the bed was a standard UK double, which for us was a bit small. The hotel was very warm, which was surprising as the heating was definitely turned off. There is no dedicated parking and whilst we were lucky enough... More

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
