Staff don’t care about you, they’re rude and the rooms are very small, not modern either, window sizes are small also so you feel trapped, all of the hotel is a tight squeeze

Will the pool be open in June and is it heated?
Hi Kay C, Yes our out door pool is heated during summer months, as the pool is subject to out door temperatures, night time lows does have an impact. Sean Nell

Does it have an indoor pool? And is it free?
The Cumberland hotel has an outdoor pool. However the hotel shares facilities with the Suncliffe hotel,that does have an indoor pool. In fact the facilities across the 3 hotels are very good.

A terrace gives you more room to sit out on , but I’d always ask for a balcony and higher as less noisy if events going on . Enjoy the wonderful views x
