Great place! A central gem indeed
Great location esp if with a car with parking on location. Lovely homely place to stay. Staff couldn’t be better or more helpful. Genuinely wanted to help. Great beer and breakfast. Now my ‘goto place’ to stay for work and for a future weekend away. Simple, flat, enjoyable stroll into town. Post code works for SAT NAV fine just watch for the small entrance but easy U turn if you miss it first time... like I did

After a Week of Golf
I was traveling with my two boys after a week of golf. We wanted a location that was easy to park, close to the airport and walking distance to downtown. The Cumberland was one of the few that met this criteria and had a large room that would sleep 4+. The Cumberland was perfect!!

Excellent value
I enjoyed my stay. It was very good value for money. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast was very good. I found it easy to walk into the centre of Edinburgh. The local area has lots of individually owned cafes which are open early and some until 9.30 pm.
