How bad do I want to win? I would sell my husband, children and clothes to have a peaceful night away!
Well done on marie claire. This time next year x
Wow the foyer looks fantastic, so the Hotel must be AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! would love to take my husband there for our29th wedding anniversary. xx
would love love love to win this – sounds like a fabulous hotel and looks pretty amazing too. my fingers and toes are crossed.
Do I fancy a night in the 4* hotel?????? Yeah boyyy, course I do! 😉 This giveaway trumps any other I’ve come across!
Oooh WOW! Was already following you on Bloglovin, and have tweeted about the giveaway (here: https://twitter.com/#!/StyleServings/status/165389160767692801).
I have been trying to find a way to have dinner at Rhodes for so long now, after having read about it in a magazine, but it’s just way out of my student budget so this would be amazing! And a night in the Cumberland, well, it would be a dream, and an especially welcome break from my student room and shower!
I would LOVE to win this prize. Myself and my husband got married last year and never got to go on a honeymoon, i don’t think going for lunches around the West End for 3 days is quite the same as soaking it up on a beautiful Island hearing the sound of the waves lapping agains the sand whilst you relax with a cocktail in hand. Obviously when we do go i am going to milk it for all it is worth but in the meantime, a stay at a beautiful hotel, cocktails and dinner would most definitely suffice. So please consider me, at least for the sanity of my husband. x x
I have liked you on facebook and have shared the giveaway on my profile:) I would love to win soo much! It’s my birthday at the end of the month so it would be the perfect excuse for a shopping trip, and to try out the Rhodes restaurant, which I would normally never get to go to!
Seeing as Jude’s canny drink can I have both cocktails if we win??
Well done on getting so close in the Marie Claire awards! Defo yours next year! Catch up soon!x
black & white with gold accessories sooo classic!!
Nice blog, I´m following you via Bloglovin´ now 🙂
Incredible giveaway! Well scored. You know I need this … But , um, is the Cumberland dog friendly??? 😉 no? Never mind, they would prefer the kennel for a night I’m sure.

I would love to win this. It is our 8 year anniversary on 14th Feb. we had our first date on valentines day. 8 years down the line later we have 2 beautiful children. I have had postnatal depression and have recently returned back to work full time and we are finding it hard to spend time together without the kids. This would really help us to get to spend some ALONE time together which is greatly needed.
I would love to win.
I would love to win this, as my friend has been going through a really tough time lately and I would love to be able to treat her to a luxury trip to London to cheer her up
Like a fish needs water and a bird needs to fly

A luxury hotel for me is a dream,

Great competition, Thanks x
as avid fan of cooking shows, would love to taste food of the quality of the Rhodes for real, rather than just with my eyes on tv, and to experience the luxury of the Cumberland would make it a dreamlike experience, for once would definitely leave my furry friends at home:)
I have shared the link and like on FB.
I would love to spend a night away with my husband, we have only ever had 3 nights on our own as he is stepdad to my 10 year old. Those 3 nighte were our ‘minimoon’ and even then we were slightly gatecrashed – I was 6 months pregnant!
I would just love to snuggle up to him, tell him I love him, act like teenagers in love. I’d quite like the lie in too!
Fab competition. xxx
I have a *super fine* dress and skyscraper gladiotor heels that have been sitting patiently in my wardrobe just begging for a glamorous night like this to arrive……dont wanna let them down!
(Gave you a nice little shout via FB and tagged you too btw!) xxx
This is amazing, i would love to win this so much. And cocktails too…. bonus!!
would absolutely love to win this, my husband and i have been married for 6 years and never had a night away from the children yet! also he is going working over in germany so it would be an amazing way to say goodbye 🙂
What a fantastic blog Wendy – what talent!
The love of my life left me on Christmas Eve 🙁
Winning this would give me a July deadline to get back on my feet and find another special one to share it with!! Haha 🙂
What a fab prize. Yes please !!
I really want to win as both of us need a break before I start radiotherapy in a couple of weeks – or should I go after the treatment? Also to say thank you to my fella for taking me to numerous hospital appts since November and for just being there & helping me to cope.
I have tweeted and thanked you via my tweeting name @spritneybeers
Having read all the replies I wish we all could go together as one happy family, so many worthy folk! I just would really appreciate the break from good ole Barnsley town! Me and my boyfriend havent been away in over a year and it would be the perfect way to thank him for injecting me weekly with my crohns disease treatment as Im too chicken to do it and its made me feel almost human again! I have been to London once before and always vowed to go back as there is SO much to see, so it would kickstart this year off to an extra special lovely start.
Following via blog lovin, pasted link on face book
wow how bad would I like to win, well I’d cut of my right arm, just to have a night away, Hubby and I have 5 children, ranging from 6 yrs to 25 yrs, so it’s been a long adventure so far, would be fantastic for him and me to have some quality time together xxx
This is a fantstic giveaway i would love to win this and have really enjoyed reading the blog

I want it soooo bad that I have spent 20 minutes signing up to everything including GFC even tho u didnt ask 4 it.
I do hope it’s going to be a random draw and not based on these comments – that would be very fair IMHO
Good Luck to everybody xx
I’d love to win just to have a night with my husband without the kids in the bed too!!! Plus I haven’t been to a restaurant without kids for over 5 years!!
A night away I would love to win,
To treat my husband for how good he’s been.
He works long hours & time to relax is rare,
He deserves a break to let down his hair!
A night at the wonderful Cumberland Hotel
Would certainly go down rather well.
I’ve followed you on facebook and also on twitter,
The idea of winning sends my heart all a-flitter.
So, here is my rhyme – my plea to you,
A mini-break would make our dreams come true!
Posted the link on Facebook and liked your page. Would love to win this as a special treat for my daughter. She loves London and the Theatre and a stay in the gorgeous, luxury Cumbernauld hotel would make a fabulous birthday present for her as well as a celebration of finishing her exams.
ohhh I’d love to win, for a fabulous night out and then a great relaxing, pampering night in a famous hotel! My mum and dad used to stay at the Cumberland when they visited London…it has great memories for me, though I never stayed there myself…I can remember mum raving about it!
I’ve like you on facebook and followed you on twitter.
I’ve tweeted the comp and also shared on facebook – I WANT TO WIN THIS – please 🙂
Following on facebook (liked and shared). Would love to win this prize. Husband and I are desperate for a night away and I have been entering competitions like mad for nearly a year with no wins so it would be great to win this!
I would love to win this so much.Havent been away in a few years,hard to get away with a kid,and the last time I was in London was 16 years ago when I was 10,and my Fiancé has never been but we’ve always wanted to go!Would be great to have a break away just the two of us.
We so badly need this prize. We are Home Alone parents this week and feeling very alone and miserable and abandoned by our offspring so we really need a sumptious and luxurious night away to cheer ourselves up!
My significant other and myself first met on 18th February 1992 (20 years ago this year I still cant believe it) and it would be a fantastic surprise to take him for a night away in a beautiful hotel in Mayfair…
i’d love to win since i love London, would be great to treat my mum for mothers day, since I’m a student i can’t afford to go on holiday.
i’d love to win and have a night away without the kiddies!
Would love to stay here with my boyfriend. Our long distance relationship means we hardly ever meet. A night in London together would be a real treat.
I stayed at the Cumberland once through work (dont tell the boss – I was supposed to be at the Travelodge!!) anyway, it was amazing. Id love to head back there for a romantic trip – desperate to head to the big smoke for some reatail therapy!!!
Well who would not want to have a night at a gorgeous hotel in London with a delicious meal? It sounds divine and I would love to experience it. I am following you on facebook, GFC and twitter and have tweeted too. Thank you!
A dream trip away with a night on the town – Oh! Thankfifi, I’ve the perfect gown!
Clothes look stunning, would like to be wearing them at the elegant Cumberland Hotel.
liked on facebook
Sounds wonderful. Would love to surprise my boyfriend – perhaps this 29th Feb he would say ‘Yes’ if he knew he was going there.
Oh my lord what wouldn’t most people do for an opportunity to spend two nights of splendour in such a gorgeous hotel, enjoying exquisite food and spectacular cocktails. Few words could plead or beg adequately. So I think a simple yes please and thank you very much from the bottom of my heart would only be polite. Oh and I know just the friend to accompany me who would relish such an amazing treat living the lifestyle of a supermodel for a few days. Well we can all dream of being tall and leggy!
Following you via GFC, have tweeted the giveaway on Twitter @daisyangel1 and FB
The Cumberland Hotel, wow what a treat!
A luxurious night now that’s right up my street.
Cocktails too at the Patron Bar,
Being treated just like a movie star.
A romantic break for hubby & me,
No kids for a night – the chance to be free!
Time is precious and there’s never enough,
We’re always running around doing ‘stuff’.
We’d love the chance to focus on ‘us’
And not be consumed by the everyday rush.
Dinner at Rhodes Brassiere would just hit the spot,
Elegant dining that would cost not a jot!
The conversation would flow along with the wine,
We talk about how we were having the greatest time
We’d raise our glasses and give a toast,
Saying thanks to ‘Thankfifi’ our generous host!

How bad do I want to win this? Badder than I want to do Riverdance….and I do a pretty mean Riverdance!

This would be such a fantastic prize for me to win as it is our wedding anniversary in June. What better way for us to celebrate than a night away in London. Very romantic and as an extra bonus my husband loves Monopoly and as Mayfair is the best property on the board he would be well chuffed!
I have tweeted this out.
I would love to go for a belated Valentine treat ! I met my husband many moons ago on a blind date on Valentines day.

There’s nothing I wouldn’t sell
to bag a night in the Cumberland Hotel.

I would love to win, a treat for me AND him.
We wed in September-quite a day to remember.
It poured with rain, shame it wasn’t Spain!
Sadly no honeymoon for us, but we didn’t make a fuss.
A belated honeymoon would bring us utter joy, enough to ditch our baby boy!
A night alone together would be heaven
An entire nights sleep, maybe sleep in until 11 : )
Have tweeted and am following on twitter @ VeeJay78
It would be lovely to win this and have some luxury. We’re expecting our first baby this Summer so would be nice to get away and have some us time before our lives change forever!

Would love to win this fab prize, a relaxing weekend away – bliss
