Accommodation at Cumberland Lodge

Room types: Both single and twin rooms are available to reserve. If you wish to share a bedroom, please note you will need to organise your own guest to share with and we are unable to assist you with this.

Facilities: Cumberland Lodge is an historical house so facilities on offer do differ from those in a hotel.  All the bedrooms at Cumberland Lodge offer the following facilities. They are en-suite, have towels and toiletries, there is free Wi-Fi internet access from all bedrooms and public areas, there are tea and coffee making facilities as well as a safety deposit box in the wardrobe of each bedroom. We would also like to make you aware of the following regarding the bedrooms at Cumberland Lodge. You should expect some variation in the size/bathroom facilities of the bedrooms since this is not a purpose built hotel. Some of the bedrooms are located in the mews, which is in the building adjacent to the main house (less than 1 minute walk away). None of the bedrooms have a telephone or television so please bring your own laptops to use Skype instead (there is free wi-fi and a television in the sitting room). There is an office available for guests to use the telephone, computer, printer, photocopy and scan. Nominal charges apply to this use for which you will need to pay cash. Some payphones are also located in the Mews, adjacent to the main house.

Your stay at Cumberland Lodge includes Breakfast however there is no room service or restaurant facilities available. A cash bar will only be open during the evening meals for you to purchase your own drinks but this will not be open at other times.  We recommend you make arrangements to bring sufficient funds to cover this cost prior to your arrival since once at the Lodge the nearest ATM is back at Egham. As Cumberland Lodge will only be issuing one invoice to the organisers it is not possible to arrange any hotel bills, hence all extra items will need to be paid in cash as required.

Check-in: You may check-in from 3pm onwards at Cumberland Lodge on Sunday 23rd October 2016.  If the front door is not open when you arrive, please ring the front doorbell.  After you have been checked in, you will be issued with a swipe card to access the front door and a user name/password to access the internet.  There is always either a duty manager or night supervisor on site at all times.

Check-out: Please check-out from the bedrooms is by 9am on Tuesday 25th of October 2016. Luggage storage facilities are available. You need only return your swipe card upon departure.
