I spent the last weekend at the Cumberland hotel in Bournemouth Dorset. What a wonderful hotel. The room was immaculately clean overlooking the beach. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was good, plentiful and hot. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Single room (#203) is...

we do not normally do Sunday lunch out but took advantage of a travel zoo offer to come here having been recommended by family. From the minute we walked in we were made welcome, the staff were efficient and explained how the lunch menu worked. We opted for the deli starter; a buffet of cold meats, fish, breads pickles, salads...
