My husband and I were lucky enough to win a Valentine’s package at Bournemouths Oceana hotels that includes a one night stay at The Cumberland, drinks at The Suncliff, a spa treatment at the Ocean Beach & Day spa and dinner at The Royale.
Ocean Beach & Day Spa
First up was a spa treatment at the Ocean Beach & Day spa, as soon as you walk in there is a relaxing atmosphere about the place, you have soft lighting, candles, relaxing music and it is nice and warm. We each had a 30 minute treatment, I chose an Indian head massage and Dean had a shoulders neck and back massage, they were both amazing and we felt very relaxed after, the staff were very friendly and professional.
We were given a fantastic 3 course meal at The Royale, the service was fast and very professional. Each course was presented elegantly and we couldn’t wait to tuck in and we were not disappointed. We had the Chinese menu and the chow mein and sweet and sour pork were delicious. We cannot praise the staff enough they were fantastic.
We were given drinks at The Suncliff hotel, once again the staff were fantastic. There is a good choice of drinks and plenty of seating here, this is a nice quiet bar and ended a great day for us.
We spent the night at The Cumberland hotel, we had a superior room which was clean and spacious. The amazing thing about this room was the terrace overlooking the beach, there is enough room for a table, chairs and two sunbeds, this would be fantastic in the summer. Inside there is plenty of storage, you have a safe, kettle, hairdryer and free WiFi but unfortunately no fridge. The bed is large and very comfortable, there is a decent sized tv on the wall with plenty of channels and a decent sized bathroom which was very clean.
Breakfast is a basic buffet which includes a cooked breakfast and a continental breakfast of pastries, cereals, yogurts and fruit. There is a good sized pool on the grounds but unfortunately it was too cold for us to try it out.
Ok there are a couple of negatives, the room is in need of updating ( they are currently refurbishing some rooms) and the window needs a good clean. The car park is too small for the size of the hotel and you will be lucky to get a space. But the staff in all four hotels were incredible and a real credit to Oceana, we can’t praise them enough.
