Stayed overnight on 3rd floor superior room with a sea view and balcony.
Its easy to get to , just hop in a taxi from Bournemouth station
Room well decorated, and quiet though no table to be able to work on.
Comfortable bed and pillows.
The Cumberland advertises itself as a boutique hotel. I wouldn't agree altogether,
Although the restaurants on the ground floor had some flourishes like metallic painted coving. And Its got a fancy looking Art Deco Logo. Other than that, its an average joe kind of hotel with a commanding sea view.
For Boutique Hotel I would expect a better finish on the fixtures and fittings. The merest of nods is given to art deco in the bedroom with deco style bedside lights. However these were cheap and plasticy and were loose with come wobble. The bannisters on the stairwell, also have a deco feel.
Everywhere there were issues with finish. There was a small amount of black mould on the grouting in the bathroom, the balcony door wouldn't close completely resulting in the wind howling though the cracks during the night. marks on walls, cheap patterned lining paper on the ceilings who's pattern didn't match.
overall competent, but not a boutique hotel. Shame they didnt make a big play on deco. could have had a few more deco items kicking around.
