    The friendly staff on arrival, being upgraded to a sea view on arrival :) this is the first time I have left the children with family and spent the night away and I have to say the whole experience was fantastic 10/10

    There was nothing to dislike

  • Family with children

    The food was excellent. Compliments to the Chief.

    Did not like the way the senior management potrayed themselves, came across as being very official and unfriendly need to remember the guests are paying their salaries. The waiter's and Bar Staff were not relaxed because senior management behaved like Getstapo towards them. There was an unrelaxed atmosphere in the Cumberland too many official looking management hanging about doing nothing at the Dining-Room Doors throwing their eyes up with unfriendly expressions on their faces towards my 2 year old grand-son. They were not child friendly but the waiters made up for them, thank goodness. Need to go on a course of good public relations towards the customer'S.

  • Older travelers

    I didn't like the creekyy floorboards from the room above us. There were heavy footseps walking two and throw all night which kept us awake, and also just as I was booking the hotel it whent up £50 which wasn't very fair.

  • Single
    6.6

    Staff did try to deal with complaints.

    Chicken caesar salad ingredients were not as specified on the menu. Chicken and bacon in big lumps. Salad dressing smeared on top of chicken . Did get a bill. A hot night so had window open (no air con). Disturbed till gone 2.00am by concert at hotel next door followed by people leaving and then band taking away equipment. Again staff tried their best and do have a free upgrade for next visit.

    Great location - lovely views over the sea.

    Staff didn't seem too interested especially on reception. Knocking water pipes all night long was very irritating. Sound proofing not too good.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Throughout the stay the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was excellent, food superb. The proximity to the BIC was a bonus. The only down side was the car park was very congested. But overall a very enjoyable stay and would definitely choose the hotel again

    only problem was parking

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Staff were efficient, helpful and polite. Rooms were clean and well maitained.Food in Ventana was very good and excelent value for money. Carparking was a bonus.

    Much of the dining area in the Ventana was very poorly lit and menu had to be read by torch light. Musac in all eating areas was often not to our taste. Noise from the floors, both in our room,(we were in a superior room! On the 2nd floor at the front of the hotel), and the rooms above or near, was very intrusive at night. These were the noisiest floors we have ever heard in any hotel. They desparately needs attention if anyone is to get a good nights sleep, especially if you have a floor walker in the room above. We would have been happier if the hotel had been closer to the beach and town but younger guests would probably have found the walk less taxing.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Fairly good value, good location, pleasant staff

    Car park not big enough. Room overheated
