My mother and I stayed at The Cumberland Hotel for three nights and had a very pleasant stay! The art deco is beautiful and the hotel has wonderful facilities. Our room was very clean and nicely decorated and furnished with plenty of storage space (although perhaps could do with a a fresh lick of paint in parts of the bathroom) and with very comfortable beds. The only small niggle was that the water was not always hot (or even warm) perhaps due to some sort of economical system? Parking was limited in the hotel car parks- although we manage to park in the metered spaces in the road- however I imagine it would be considerably harder in the peak of summer.
There was a nice selection at breakfast- particularly the tea and fruit juice varieties and staff were very helpful (though another small niggle- pastries were dry and spongy... not crispy and flaky...)
We ate at The Mirabelle Restaurant one evening- the food was mostly very good- the highlight being the perfectly cooked hake. Although the waiting staff in the evening seemed less experienced and slightly disorganized.
All in all we had a very pleasant stay at The Cumberland Hotel.
