Halloween 2013

It has been yet another an action packed Halloween at Oceana hotels this year.


The Cumberland hosted a unique wedding that turned more than a few heads and even attracted the attention of the local press too.

Local childhood sweethearts  Joey and Lolly (pictured above) tied the knot in what must have been one of the most distinctive themed weddings we have ever hosted. From black and white hearses to punk rock wedding music, this was a wedding that will be talked about for a long time.

We all wish Mr and Mrs Draper a long and happy life together and best of luck for the future.



The hotly contested Oceana hotels annual pumpkin competition took place with a pumpkin’s created by each department being displayed in the lobby of the Cumberland for guests to vote and pictures on our facebook page for our friends from all over the globe to pitch their election too. The competition was once again a close one. The creativity and diversity has been very humbling (of should that be ‘haunting?!!).


The reception team at the Cumberland clinched 1st place with their ghoulish creation scoring at chilling total of 46 votes.

2nd, 3rd and 4th place were taken by Cumberland kitchen , Cumberland housekeeping and the Oceana reservations team respectively.

Thank you to everyone who voted for their favorites. For now it’s pumpkin soup all round….





The Bar Ventana Grand‘s talented bar servers even created their very own Halloween themed cocktail for the event.
Don’t forget our full cocktail menu is 2 for £10 5pm-7pm weeknights – so why not come and try some of our more traditional creations? The “blood drip vampire Martini” (pictured right) proved to be a huge success with our guests.
