Coastal cool at an Art Deco beachfront bolthole in Bournemouth’s upscale East Cliff neighbourhood - with breakfast, dinner and spa access included


Not many places on the south coast outshine Bournemouth. Not only does the seven-mile stretch of award-winning beaches take some beating, but the city has reinvented itself to become one of the coolest hubs in Dorset; mostly for its hip restaurants and bars, upscale shopping, and picturesque split-level gardens.

So it’s simple to see why this Art Deco property, The Cumberland, overlooking the beachfront in East Cliff will have you chasing waves in no time. For style-savvy guests, the rooms are instantly welcoming; expect on-trend decor, soothing neutrals, cool aesthetics, plush soft furnishings, and super-comfy double beds dressed with crisp white duvets and backed with statement headboards. Whether you opt for an Oceanfront room with balcony, or a more spacious Superior Oceanfront with balcony or terrace, you'll benefit from views out towards Brownsea Island and Old Harry Rocks.

Open daily for buffet-style breakfasts and multi-course dinners, the flagship Mirabelle Restaurant showcases imaginative cuisine created with fresh and locally-sourced ingredients. Equally splurge-worthy is the two AA Rosette-awarded Ventana Grand Cafe - a stylish brasserie-style spot for all-day dining and afternoon tea in fabulous Art Deco surroundings.

There’s also a tempting Sunday lunch, the chic Del Mar Lounge for morning coffees, light bites and end-of-day cocktails, and 24-hour room service available. 


The sea-facing East Cliff location couldn’t be more spot-on; you’ll be just a short walk from Bournemouth’s city centre and within easy reach of the award-winning beaches with a stay at this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner. Must-dos include hitting the sands at Durley Chine, Alum Chine, Boscombe and Southbourne, riding the Land Train that along the promenade, getting up-close with otters, rays, clownfish and sharks at the Oceanarium.

Further thrills include hopping aboard the ferry to Brownsea Island, chilling in the gorgeous Lower Gardens, Central Gardens and Upper Gardens, and learning about the inner-workings of a cockpit at the Bournemouth Aviation Museum. Cumberland Hotel is just a five-minute drive from Bournemouth railway station.
