Stayed Cumberland for my wife's bday. Family of 4. 2 boys (2 yr old & 3months)
Nice hotel. A lot of effort put into recreating the Art Deco style.
We stayed in Room 208. Family room overlooking the pool with a fantastic sea view. Booked through the hotel website for 2 nights (which turned out cheaper than anywhere else).
The room was fine. Just average really but didn't really want for much more. We were unlucky in that the people above us seemed to be training for a marathon and kept pacing around their room until about midnight on the first night. The kids managed to sleep through ok though.
Staff are all courteous and very professional. Breakfast is what you would expect from a buffet style affair however could do with more fresh fruits.
Only bug bear (apart from noisy neighbours) is the size of the lift. Not something I would normally consider ahead of booking a hotel but will do now. It's tiny and you will struggle to fit a large buggy in there. We have a phil and teds and there was no alternative but to leave it on the car! Weird when all the family rooms are on the 2nd floor?
Car park was fine. Although during peak times I could see this as being a major issue. It's very tight.
Great location and overall a pleasant stay. Would not recommend to families with younger children. Not very baby friendly. But judging by the number if senior citizens staying - I doubt they would care!
