Rooms OK. Food of a poor standard but most important waiters most unhelpful and surly. It must be easy to find a better hotel than this one.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2005

I stayed at the Cumberland at the end of october and unlike the other review on the site, I had no problems at all. The staff were polite and curteous, the food was perfect, and the condition and cleanliness of the room too. I stayed in a double seaview room, and it had the most beautiful view one could ask for. The position on the seafront was perfect, and all in all I had a wonderful time in Eastbourne. Definately fit for its 3 star rating.

This hotel had been booked for a major function which we attended.
Our experience is as follows:-
Room filthy - clothes left in suitcases as wardrobe and drawers disgusting, a cleaning team was sent round all the rooms following further complaints.
Food - Vile, fruit and cheese had mould on it along with still frozen apple pies!!

All in all - my advice - AVOID at all costs if you value your health!
