I have just stayed at The Cumberland for the 3rd time. My daughter and I were there on Sunday/Monday to celebrate my 60th Birthday. We stayed in a top floor sea view room(room 408, the Brooklyn).

Stayed at the Cumberland recently and have to say, the price we paid on trivago was a complete bargain! We also had a meal in the restaurant which was very good, the main course was on a 2 for 1 deal so didn't expect much, but how surprised were we! Extremely well presented, food was fantastic and service was excellent...

Lovely deco hotel which has a stunning view of the beach and sea. The hotel has very friendly accommodating staff. Very nice cooked breakfast, welcoming to vegetarians. Room was comfortable, nice shower, and a comfortable bed. Our advice would be to pay extra for a sea view.
