Pets Policy
We allow the accommodation of small dogs (one dog per room) at a supplement of £20 per day. As a matter of courtesy to other guests, dogs are only allowed in certain OUTDOOR public areas at the Oceana East Cliff Resort, mainly because food is served throughout our lounges and poolside. Please ask a member of the team for designated dog friendly areas. For health and safety reasons we DO NOT accept dogs in terrace rooms, ocean front superiors and suites. A pet bond must be signed at check in, along with a £50 refundable deposit. Any damage, soiling or excessive dog hair on soft furnishings will incur specialist cleaning charges. Cats are strictly prohibited.

Cumberland Vibrant Weekends
As one of Bournemouth’s largest leading destination seafront hotels, the Cumberland is known as a vibrant place at weekends. Boasting full occupancy with an outstanding reputation for events and often poolside DJ’s retro pool parties, for visitors looking for a more subdued stay, the Cumberland Bournemouth is an ideal place to stay midweek. One of Europe’s only purpose built Art Deco hotels, The Cumberland offers guests total relaxation yet is only minutes walk from Bournemouth’s vibrant centre with its café society, superb shopping and beautiful gardens. An additional attraction is the use of two associate hotels directly next door, The Suncliff and The Ocean Beach.

Bournemouth Room Allocations
Please note that there are three hotels in our Bournemouth resort. There could be occasions when Oceana Hotels may need to allocate your reservation to one of the sister hotels next door. We aim to give you prior notice, otherwise you will be notified on arrival. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
