Very impressed with the staff who were exceptionally good with our grandchildren. They were all, without exception friendly, helpful and gave excellent service. It was our first stay but we would certainly return. The location is beautiful with the sea views and access to the beach and very good food too. The room was very comfortable. Highly recommended.

Lisa our wedding coordinator was a great help along the way, especially when it came to sorting out food for all allergies ..even when having to re arrange table plans the day before the wedding nothing was to much....

Stayed in many Hotels throughout the world but was pleasantly surprised as to not just the location, accommodation, sea view, choice of menu but, most particularly, the quality of the service and friendliness of the staff. Really impressed, a most pleasant surprise and would certainly stay at the Cumberland again.

The food was first class and standards have certainly been maintained over the last few years as we have visited several times. Car parking is at a premium but some...

Just returned from another few days stay at this hotel, I booked this time with a travel zoo voucher, but the booking office allowed me to arrange my stay outside of the dates allocated on the voucher, they then applied the same rates and deal so that my daughter and her family could stay. We upgraded to a sea view...

What a lovely place beside the sea. We had a great room with the most fantastic view and the staff were amazing, they couldn't do enough for us. We ate in the restaurant and had a wine beside the pool, sitting in the sunshine, even though it was about 4 degrees.
