Womderful Wedding
Venue Service

By Mrs Karen Butcher & Mr Robert Butcher, on 09 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 14 Jun 2019

Hi Brian We had a wonderful Wedding. I can't thank you and the staff of the hotel enough. the food was amazing and the head guy in the restaurant (sorry I don't know his name) and the other waiting staff were amazing. Everything ran very smoothly and I (we) didn't have to worry about anything. I only have one teenie tiny thing and that is it would have been helpful if there had been cards by the Indian food so everyone new which curry was which. I will miss meeting up with you and chatting, could've talked to you for hours about gardening and the Theatre. You are a very warm and engaging person and i'm so glad we picked you and the hotel to celebrate our Wedding.

Lisa was very accommodating and helpful with us. Our booking was short notice but she made sure that all our requests were done. All the staff who served us were friendly. The venue was very clean and appropriate for the event. They can also the flower arrangements upon request. The food was really delicious although it took a while for the main course to be served but it was worth it anyway. Thank you for making our day extra special!

Wedding of the Year
Venue Service

By Mark Kensley & Derek Thompson, on 04 May 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2018

The Cumberland hotel hosted our Art Deco style wedding on the 08th September 2018 We chose the venue because we had eaten here before in the Ventana Restaurant and had previously spent many evenings with friends and family. We met with our wedding planner Brian Robbins a year and a half ago and we knew from that day we had chosen well. Brian was just amazing , nothing was too much trouble , he was always on hand when ever you needed to chat or meet Brian made sure everything on the day ran to clockwork We had over 100 guests stay with us for the whole weekend and everybody totally enjoyed themselves, the food was just amazing for the wedding breakfast and evening B-B-Q We take our hats off to all the staff at the Cumberland Hotel you made our day even more special by making us totally able to enjoy ours with no worries All our love Mark and Del Kensley-Thompson

We booked the Cumberland Hotel because is one of the best hotels in Bournemouth to celebrate ourwedding and we love the art deco. A big thank you to Brian Robbins for being very helpful and professional. We really appreciated it. Brian was always providing useful piece of advice. He also liased with the decoration and cake suppliers which made our life much easier. Brian also offered to change the suite with balcony which was perfect to take photos with my parents and friends before the ceremony. Definetely he delivered a great and amazing customer service. The organization was great. We had the ceremony and reception at the hotel and everything went smoothly. Everybody enjoyed breakfast and evening buffet which was very tasty. We would highly recommend the Cumberland Hotel as a wedding venue.

I hired this venue for my wedding reception, Lauren the wedding planner was amazing, she went above and beyond her job discription and I can’t imagine anyone doing a better job for us, the food was lovely and constantly topped up, everyone was friendly, we had to remind the hotel to clean the bridal room after we had emptied the bridesmaids bit but other than that amazing service

Wedding 21st April 2018
Venue Service

By Grant Williamson & Celia Williamson, on 04 May 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Apr 2018

We had our wedding at The Cumberland Hotel and from start to finish the service has been excellent. Lisa Dowdall-Sousa looked after us and was professional but also friendly through the whole process. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a taster evening before the wedding to decide what food to choose and on the day though the hotel was busy with other guests the standard and quality of the food was excellent. All our guests were extremely complimentary on the delicious food served and the polite professional staff serving. Lisa helped us through every part of the day and couldn’t do enough for us. Every aspect of the wedding went faultlessly onto the next part with all the staff attending to the guests needs. I would recommend The Cumberland Hotel as an amazing venue for a wedding. Thank you Lisa for making our day so memorable and happy for everyone.

Our Wedding
Venue Service

By Caroline & Perry Hillier, on 27 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Apr 2017

We chose our wedding to be held at the Cumberland hotel. After seeing the room with the dome roof nowhere else compared. Lisa our wedding coordinator was a great help along the way, especially when it came to sorting out food for all allergies .even when having to re arrange table plans the day before the wedding nothing was to much. Lisa & her team helped the day run smoothly as possible & made it perfect. Everyone complemented on how lovely the food was and waiter service, how quickly the food came out. The evening reception was also set up quickly so guests weren't waiting around for ages! We couldn't have wished for a more perfect thank you to everyone at the Cumberland who made our day so special.
