“Amazing food fantastic staff wonderful surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Just got back from a Valentines surprise weekend and had an amazing weekend at the Cumberland Hotel - arrived too late for the Valentines meal but had Room service from the Ventana - best room service EVER!

Afternoon tea was fabulous everything about it, the food, the staff, the surroundings simply put you deserve to treat yourself to this experience.

Dinner in the Ventana was an experience I will never forget - I have eaten in many places around the world but nothing compares to the Ventana the food was superb - a variety of interesting choices beautifully presented and when the bill came it was so reasonable for the quality of food and service we will be returning again without a doubt.

Thank you to all the staff who made our weekend something very special despite the weather!

“It is just a lovely experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

The ambience is lovely in there,on entering we just felt great.The service is spot on, thankyou to our waiter Oliviero for his service.The food is delicious.We are hoping to arrange an evening there with friends dressed to suit the art deco surrounds. The 2-4-1 offer is a bonus. Just cannot really put into words how we felt, lovely lovely lovely.............cannot wait to go back...........but only on occasion,so we don't spoil the experience.

“Customer service excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

The team have a way of treating each guest as being someone special - not many venues have that way of giving such excellent service even on very busy events at the hotel. We love going there! The food is always well presented, on hot plates, excellent tastes, perfect service and such good value for money.

“Afternoon tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

We visited the Ventana grand cafe recently to partake of their wonderful afternoon tea. Lovely glass of bubbly to begin with! The quality of the dainty sandwiches, freshly made scones, cakes and fresh strawberries were delightful as were the staff! All beautifully presented and a very pleasant atmosphere. We would recommend you pay a visit.
