All in all this is a perfectly good seaside middle of the road hotel. The staff were smart and happy, they seem to understand the elderly client very well...The bar had a good selection of beers, wines and spirits.

I recently stayed at The Cumberland Hotel in Eastbourne. It was in an excellent position - right on the sea front not far from the pier. The hotel was spacious and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was lovely but the evening meal was a little disappointing. It was obvious that renovation work was in progress as two of my friends had...

Travelled by coach, as one of only three ladies alone. Grateful for tea, coffee and biscuits reception. Lovely single room with sea view, and a most comfortable bed. A heater was delivered to the room very soon after reporting a chill in the air. Food was most acceptable, including the desserts, which were not out of a tin!. All staff...
