We stayed in the Cumberland on Thursday 26th September 2013. We live in Wiltshire and had not been to Bournemouth for 15 years so couldn't wait our break.
It was very exciting travelling down and when we located the hotel we could see the sea immediately. We parked in the car park behind the hotel which had spare spaces available. We then walked in to see a stunning reception area. We were greeted by a friendly receptionist and offered help with our luggage. We decided to make our own way up on the lift. Good job there was only the 2 of us it is very very small as I've seen in other reviews I read about the Cumberland. But we don't go away on our hols to spend time in lifts do we people??. The room itself was ok to nice the décor could do with a spruce up but the bed was nice and spacious and comfortable. Then we walked out onto our balcony WOW! .Stunning view. ( we stayed in the red room ).
The bathroom however was our only disappointment. It smelt a bit stale and wasn't the cleanest and the water would not run away in the sink ( think it was blocked ) shower wasn't very good either. We decided that night to stay in and have a 3 course meal. Lovely! well worth it. breakfast the following morning was also very nice although i'm not the biggest fan of doing my own toast?? The staff were however always very polite and attentive. So would we go back again? Yes we will next year. Thank you to all at the Cumberland. p.s. when returning home I have found the white door pass to our bedroom in my back pocket. Sorry. Adrian & Cheryl Brindle.
