PRESS RELEASE -28th July 2011

Since purchasing the Cumberland Bournemouth in 2007, with an AA rating of 3 star 64%, the Cumberland has continued to increase its merit score year on year until a mystery inspection this past week resulted in the hotel being awarded the ultimate accolade of a coveted AA Food Rosette for its Ventana Brasserie, coupled with the highest AA 3 Star Hotel rating in Bournemouth and Poole.

Years of investment in refurbishment and staff training are responsible for this mammoth achievement.

Ventana Head Chef Gines Camillieri and his brigade are thrilled, what is even more amazing is that the Ventana Brasserie was merely an unused conference room just 4 years ago, and has quickly risen to become one of Bournemouth’s few rosette restaurants.

These latest accolades are on top of the recently awarded HRS National Hotel Excellence Awards for Marketing and Best Value Large Hotel in the UK and Northern Ireland and are the ultimate reward for Directors Kevin Wood, Brian Shone and Terry Taylor and their passionate team of professionals.

Continuing investment in the product and marketing even through these times of Austerity have ultimately paid off for both the Hotel and the UK’s most popular tourist resort of Bournemouth.

On top of these excellent flurry of accolades , the hotel occupancy has reflected the success rising from 54% in 07 to 89% in 2011, proving that investment and hard work pays off, even in tough times making us the best hotel in Bournemouth.

    Well done. Each time we stay at the Cumberland ( only 4-5 times so far ) I am relieved that your standards are a bit beeter each time. Makes it fairly easy not to go anywhere else in the Area. Everytime we stay at 4/5 star hotels abroad, my wife generaly comments ” foods not as good as the Cumberland”. Looking forward to our stay at New Year. ( I note you have sold out ). Well deserved.

    We had our Xmas party at the Cumberland. It was the best Xmas evening I have been to in a long time. Excellent food, superbly organised, super service and a beautiful venue and decor. Would highly recommend and will be booking for this year again!

    I come to Bournemouth for business reason. I struggled to pick the accommodation as there were so many hotels around. I only chose the Cumberland as the price was competitive, at the time there was only one room available in this hotel(in June for Wednesday & Thursday!) and reviews were very good. It turned out to be an excellent choice! Beautiful, well located venue, great decor and excellent service. The food was amazing and I loved my superior sea view! I would highly recommend this hotel or just the restaurant if anybody is looking for a great meal experience. Perhaps recommendation is not required as the hotel was full and so was the restaurant! I will definitely book it again. Thank you Cumberland team!

    Just spent 2 nights at the Cumberland with my best friend to celebrate her birthday & would have to say excellent choice. This was even more so due to the deal we received having taken up an Amazon local deal & paid half price!! Would happily pay full price without question do voucher paid off with prospect of repeat custom having drawn me in. Food, service & staff attitude & politeness were all excellent. Don’t expect to leave feeling hungry as portions were large & expertly cooked & presented. All in all had a great time & will definitely be going again. Ps. If you decide to have a spa treatment then I would definitely recommend you request Lucy as she was great & best massage I have ever had.
