Truly one of the worst places I've ever stayed (and I backpacked through Asia on a budget) The B&B is cheap, but there should still be a minimum level of service for the price. The lady that checked us in couldn't find us on the list, then gave us someone else's room key - I opened the room to find...

Does what it says on the door. Small family run provincial hotel. And given the way these places have suffered the ravages of the Internet discounters in recent years - they have managed to do it rather well. Congrats due.

I stayed here over a Weekend in February, I must say that I found the Hotel to have real Charm. The Staff were incredibly Helpful, The Room was Extremely Cosy and Very Well Priced, for a Privately Owned Hotel.....Would Stay Again!

The Cumberland is dated, but also very clean, I would rate it the same as most sea side towns. I arrived after the previous hotel had got the date of my stay wrong and we're fully booked, they sent me here. The rooms are average in size, bathroom is large and generally smart. There are bits and pieces of wear...

Just come back from a weekend with a group of older friend I am 76 and we were very disappointed. The room was a good size but creaking floor boards from above made for a not to relaxing atmosphere. Reception and lounge areas were not welcoming and oddly set out. We could forgive all this but for the unfriendly staff...
