hotel room was spacious enough, bathroom was ok. but, no cleaning service for weekend, no replacement of tea and coffees, floor was very squeeky as was ceiling, breakfast was pretty bad, with the quote of the century being, no toast due to covid, as she then happily passed me my plate of breakfast and sauces all of which had been touched anyway - classic, i did not bother with breakfast on day 2, and hotel was overpriced, so overall not that impressed, especially as Eastbourne itself was a disappointment, with the closed Pier

Just over 75 people all attended our dance weekend at the Cumberland. This has been our venue of choice for many years now and they never let us down Great team to work with lovely food and great location as right on the front All rooms lovely and clean Ballroom Perfect for our events Elaine is the manager and she is very approachable and helps with any queries I have had or specific requirements by our dancers Ideal location for dance weekend. Shops only five mins walk away and ten mins to the station Thanks team for always being great and helpful Ideal for Turkey and Tinsel weekends or midweek programmes as the location is great. It’s an hour by bus to Brighton if you fancy a trip out and the shops that are available here have quite a selection Great venue for us. Thanks Team xx
