Firstly, we are not in the habit of 'reviewing' hotels but feel some are unfair to this hotel. We had an enjoyable long weekend stay and were not disappointed. It is rated 3 Star (not 4, or 5) and as such we think The Cumberland is a good 3 Star hotel!
We did pay extra for a front facing room with balcony and lovely sea views - which we enjoyed, even in the rain! Our room was on the second floor and was quiet! The room was clean with modern style decor and refurbished bathroom with a hot shower!
The main impact at The Cumberland has to be the impressive Art Deco styling in the ground floor areas which, especially in the evening, has a definite air of glamour which we enjoyed! Each evening during our stay the hotel held a wedding reception and we were concerned that after our evening meal there might not have been anywhere to sit! But were pleased that the hotel has sofa's reserved for residents and so this wasn't a problem.
We ate in the Mirabelle restaurant where there were a variety of good, tasty meal choices each evening and the staff provided a friendly and quick service, no complaints. Outside, we also relaxed and enjoyed some October sunshine with a quiet afternoon drink in front of the pool. We would stay at The Cumberland again!
