This is an excellent hotel in many ways.The location,just a short walk away from the beach and the centre of Bournemouth is ideal.It is just far enough away from the crowds to be peaceful without being cut off.
There are stunningly spectacular views across the seafront from the cliffs of the Isle of Wight in the distance to the cliffs of the Dorset coast beyond Poole from many of the rooms.
The lido pool at the front of the hotel is heated and is a delightful alternative to the indoor pool at the neighbouring Suncliffe hotel (to which guests of the Cumberland have access).
The food is excellent with a choice of restaurants in the evening.
The buffet breakfast is a real feast setting you up for the day.
The service is polite and efficient.
It is a very good place to have a break from the norm.
All in all,apart from a rather small lift (due to the building's being 1930s)it is a really wonderful place to stay.
