I have just had my second stay at the Cumberland, Eastbourne with a group of 12.
When I last visited this hotel, there were a few problems with décor because of the dreadful weather at the time , but it didn't stop me giving it a fair report, with the comfort, friendly staff, and the entertainment, plus the ideal position on the sea front within walking distance to the shops, pier, theatres, and not forgetting a bus stop right outside to go further afield. Now the hotel is in at the end of refurbishment, and the rooms are looking great. My single 208, although a rear view had a lovely bathroom/shower which was almost as big as the bedroom. Okay squeaky floorboards are a problem, but you only hear them when your getting up, or going to bed. You don't go on holiday to spend time in your room, there is a lovely lounge downstairs, and food has loads of choice....More
