Everything you need

Pros: The property manager, Tima, was an absolute joy to meet. She greeted us by first name the moment we arrived and always had a large smile ready.
Cons: We found the two bedroom spa room a bit small for a family of four - but to be fair, our kids are both nearly adults & take up a lot of room :)
Location: Recommend snorkelling at Emily Bay & Slaughter Bay, & definitely the Hilli Goat Cheese tour. Walk down the cliff to Anson Bay. Drive up Mt Pitt.
We stayed at Cumberland for 7 nights as a family of four. The resort was chosen for its location & price & we were not disappointed with either. The centre of "town" is at your doorstep, with cafes, supermarket, liquor store and shopping just down the road. A car is provided for your use, which is essential on Norfolk as there is no public transport. Being right in the centre of the island, anywhere you wish to go is never more than 5 minutes away.

centrally located worked well for our holiday

Pros: Staff are friendly centrally located
Cons: Maintenance to rooms
Our room requires some maintenance eg hot water in the shower warm only, television needs remounting as it only faces the floor, all knives for food preparation require sharpening and there is no light over the dining table also the dressing table drawers are not user friendly

Best accomodation on the island!

Cumberland was in the perfect position for everything. The unit was amazing with I room spa. Very well equipped kitchen, very clean and excellent help from staff re booking anything. Breakfast basket was plentiful and car supplied as well! What else could you ask for?

Norfolk Holiday

Pros: A little road noise in the front villa.
Cons: Nothing
Location: The Resort is very central and it is easy to explore the history and sights with the car provided (pay insurance only).
We have just returned from a relaxing 7 night holiday at Cumberland Resort and Spa. The managers Ghiselle and Julius welcomed us and made sure any requests were met. The resorts rooms are comfortable and well equipped.

Thank you for rating your outstanding accommodation experience. Besides our quest for ecological conservation with limited island resources, the island has limited water supply (only tank water), exorbitant electrical costs, 4 times more expensive than Australia. We offer a convenient, affordable $15 complete same-day valet service, washed, folded, returned while enjoying your holiday. Excellent Wifi throughout the resort with free internet computer at reception for guests without devices.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. You rated our facilities as typical. There is no other resort with a heated swim spa pool, onsite day spa, sauna, spa baths and massage showers, so we are a little surprised you would consider this to be typical. We are also the closest accommodation to all the attractions, so we appreciate you rating us favorably on this score. Thanks once again - we'd love to welcome you back. We appreciate your feedback as it keeps us on our toes.
