We are glad we chose the Cumberland hotel to stay in. The holiday was with Alfa travel so we traveled by coach. The hotel is in a really good location , a short walk into town or to the seaside. The staff are very friendly ,our waiter Sam was excellent. We had breakfast and a three course evening meal , we could not fault the food , plenty of options , really good choice if your a vegetarian as well. We stayed in room 211 which is on the second floor , there is a lift if you need it. The room was very clean and tidy and the shower was excellent. We would recommend the Cumberland hotel.

We spent an 8 day break at the Cumberland from the 23rd to 30th June 2013. We have nothing but praise for this Hotel. We were greeted by the smiling receptionist and from then every member of staff was friendly and very competent The accommodation was spotless and very comfortable and the decor of our rooms was excellent. The only downside was the lack of porterage. My husband and I are quite elderly and the front steps although there arent many were quite difficult for us to cope with. On arrival Sarah the receptionist came out and helped. Once up the entrance steps it wasnt a problem as the lift was near reception. However we had a delightful holiday and we hope to be back again in the near future.

Room Tip: Our rooms were facing the road but that wasnt a problem

Take ear plugs with you if you go to bed before midnight and end up in room 101 above the speakers. We enjoyed the singers and the bingo but why they play the CD player until midnight when there are only a few people left in the lounge seems a bit pointless.

The Hotel was nice and clean and the staff very helpful and friendly, just don't expect much sleep!

PS Beware hotel test alarm 6.00am some mornings!

My family had an outstanding time,at Cumberland Hotel, from the 27th to 31st may 2013, we cannot praise this hotel enough there was nothing you could fault, on arrival we were greeted by a very friendly and helpful reception staff, who greeted us off of our coach, the staff were all friendly and happy to help, our waiter in particular was very helpful, and the food was delicious and well presented. Our rooms were spotlessly clean, and excellent value for money, the views from the hotel were spectacular, I would definitely go back again, and recommend this hotel to anyone wishing or considering going to Scarborough on holiday.

My fiance and myself spent the 25th. & 26th. May at this hotel and we cannot praise it enough.

On arrival we were greeted by a smart, polite, courteous very helpful receptionist who made us feel welcome from the moment we walked through the door.

Our room and en suite were spotlessly clean with excellent decor, furniture and fittings.

Down in the bar the staff were fun, friendly and, like the receptionist, made us feel welcome from the moment we entered the bar. The entertainment provided for residents was tremendous, especially on the Saturday night.

We seriously cannot stress how good we think this hotel is and will definitely be staying there every time we go back to Scarborough which will be often.

In short anyone thinking of visiting Scarborough will not be disappointed if they book into this wonderful hotel.

My friend and I have just returned from an Alpha holiday at the Cumberland Hotel. The minute we arrived we were greeted with welcoming smiles from the staff. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The bathroom was spotless and new. The meals were delicious with plenty of food.It was excellent value for the money we paid.There is no pool or fitness area.
The location was great especially for families with lots to do.

Room Tip: All rooms have a good view.
