Stayed at this hotel for two nights on our trip down to Bournemouth. This restaurant wasn't busy being a Sunday and Monday but the food was excellent as was the service. The handiest part was that we had our 1.5 year old son asleep in our room and our baby monitor worked perfectly down there from the first floor. That... More

My husband and I were looking for somewhere for lunch in Bournemouth. We did a Tripadvisor search and came up with Bar Ventana at The Cumberland Hotel. When we arrived the car park was full but we were easily directed to the next door hotel to park instead. We were pleasantly surprised at the interior decorations as we walked in.... More

We have eaten in this restaurant when we have stayed at the hotel on a couple of previous occasions before and once again had a very enjoyable meal. We needed to be at the theatre early in the evening and the restaurant were very accommodating, allowing us to pre-order and served us very quickly. Food was lovely. Would always recommend... More
