“Excellent all round!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2013

Me and my husband got married here in June 2012. From the day of booking all the way to the end of the wedding day the hotel staff were brilliant. Lisa was great in giving us all the information we needed and making our day extra special. The food was reasonably priced and tasted great. Everyone had a fantastic time and commented on how lovely the Oceana suite was. The Cumberland hotel made our wedding 100% perfect and I would happily recommend this to anyone who is planning a wedding to make this your venue! x

Spent a night at the hotel last week. very pleased with how things went. Very attentive, polite staff, quiet room, nice food. great position overlooking the sea. Parking difficult when we arrived in the late afternoon but we found a space at a neighbouring hotel which was ok.

Room Tip: we had a room looking out to the side of the hotel which was very quiet

Stayed at this hotel with wife recently .Thoroughly enjoyed stay albeit for one night only Room was very acceptable and the service from all staff encountered from the time of arrival to our departure was first class and a credit to the hotel. We were on a special deal for this one night stay with dinner and breakfast. Food was very good. We will certainly consider a longer stay on another occassion if time allows. Would have no problem in recommending this hotel to others.

We have just enjoyed a weekend Birthday break at the Cumberland Hotel. We have stayed in several hotels in Bournemouth & so far the Cumberland has been the best. We were recommended this hotel by a hairdresser in Christchurch who also claimed this was the best hotel along the sea front.
The decor was tasteful & the food was excellent. Simona our waitress was very polite, friendly & with a smile on her face. She went the extra mile in arranging our table & chairs depending on the time of day.
We originally booked a basic room but decided to upgrade to a sea view as it was a Birthday treat. Helder Pinto the General Manager very kindly gave us an even better room with a great view & balcony & four poster bed.
In the past we have tended to walk into town for something to eat but as the weather was so cold the Hotel seemed far more inviting & we weren't disappointed with the food.
We would thoroughly recommend this hotel & would definitely stay here again.
