Having spent Twixmas at this hotel I am afraid I will not be spending another. The hotel has just been re-furbished and the decor is stunning. The food excellent and the staff could not be more helpful. Unfortunately if you want to get a good nights sleep make sure you get a room on the top floor. For the 3 nights we spent there we hardly slept a wink as the walls are so thin and the people above us seemed to spend all night walking around their room, knocking over tables and rummaging through their wardrobes. The floorboards groaned everytime they walked around and at one stage I even ventured upstairs to make sure it wasn't a general area or walkway that I could hear. The entertainment was horrendous, so much so that we went to the two sister hotels next door to see if there was anything better. It would be a good idea if management made a rule that no children should be left to run riot on the dance floor after 9 or 10 at night as it made dancing impossible for the adults not to mention how disheartening it must feel to the entertainers. The average age of the people staying at the hotel were older so I find it rather odd that they put on a disco with all the latest music as entertainment one night. That certainly chased the majority of the residents away. If the above could be rectified I would return as the Cumberland is good value for money and the location in Bournemouth is excellent but I doubt they could resolve the floorboard issue, though they could certainly improve on the entertainment by perhaps spending a bit more money on quality entertainers and perhaps a live band instead of a disco.
