Coastal cool at an Art Deco beachfront bolthole in Bournemouth’s upscale East Cliff neighbourhood - with breakfast and dinner 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 overlooking the beachfront in East Cliff will have you chasing waves in no time. There’s an outdoor pool (open seasonally) area complete with Miami-inspired lido deck, green palms and chillout beds for sunny days, two superb restaurants for brasserie-style à la carte cuisine at the Ventana Grand Cafe or a three-course set menu at Mirabelle Restaurant, a divine day spa that’s just up the road, and a rather lovely lounge for kicking back with morning coffee, afternoon teas and end-of-day cocktails.

Good to know

Guests have access to the facilities at several of the hotel’s sister properties: The Suncliff Hotel, The Ocean Beach Hotel & Spa and the Best Western Hotel Royale.


For style-savvy guests, the 107 rooms are instantly welcoming; expect on-trend decor, soothing neutrals, funky aesthetics, plush soft furnishings, and super-comfy double beds dressed with crisp white duvets. Thoughtful touches that will make you more than happy to crash here for hours include flatscreen TVs with Freeview, Wi-Fi, tea and coffee facilities, and great-looking bathrooms with showers and tub combos.

Open daily for buffet-style breakfasts, three-course dinners and Sunday lunch, 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 Café - a stylish brasserie-style spot for all-day dining in fabulous Art Deco surroundings. There’s also the chic Del Mar Lounge for morning coffees, afternoon teas with all the trimmings, and end-of-day cocktails. Round-the-clock room service is 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. 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.
