Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Louise and Peter Savage, on 04 May 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2018

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.
