The Cumcumba staff are really lovely, and the venue is definitely a place I would recommend. I arrived late, but they still gave me the treatment, which was generous. Unfortunately the lady who does nail art didn't come in until later, so I couldn't have a nail art manicure, but the manicure I did have was very pretty (although the manicurist got slightly confused with the colours at one point), and they reduced the price for me as it wasn't quite the treatment I'd booked.

I would award the manicure four stars rather than three, but unfortunately the polish is noticeably uneven on some of my nails, and the beautician cut my cuticles too much: a couple of my fingers are still extremely sore and red around the cuticle area, over twelve hours later! Aside from that, however, my nails have a lovely shape now: the therapist took great care in filing them, and the nail polish is beautiful.

In addition, the pictures of the nail art that they had on the wall looks incredible, and I've heard great things about the lady who does it, so I'm still planning on booking for that in the future!

I booked four different treatments on a last minute deal so appreciate it might have been a lot to fit in. The salon clearly had more bookings than staff so I was kept waiting for 20mins and then had 3 different staff alternate to finish the same single manicure treatment.
Everyone was really friendly but ultimately it was all a bit slapdash - I guess because time pressure was clearly on everyone's mind. The spray tan was the best I've ever had, calmly and professionally applied after genuinely listening the my preferences. The callus peel was great (if uncomfortable) and thorough and the threading was fine. It was the pedicure and manicure that were really sub-standard. The nail shaping was uneven and I was left with multiple snagged ends, and the painting was really poor so I had bubbles and chips before I'd even left the salon.
Ultimately, I would go back but I'd be really careful about what treatments I'd book. Definitely spray tan. Not nails.

Lovely place - friendly helpful staff, I felt very comfortable and the treatment was very quick and efficient. I've had lots of compliments on my very natural-looking tan :)

I always go to Cucumba, however the previous wax that i had was by far the best wax ever. It was so efficient, pain free and quick and i would hugely recommend the staff that did it.. i think her name was Jan or Jill.. but i will definitely be returning!

I arrived slightly late for my appointment but the staff were still extremely friendly and efficient; my appointment was able to go ahead as planned. Really appreciated this professionalism.
The waxing is of a very good standard, at a very reasonable price considering the quality! :)

The lady was very kind but not very skilled. She piled on heaps of nail varnish to the point where I had to tell her to start over. She blamed the colour and then started over with another colour and did a mediocre job. At that point my 10 min treatment has lasted 25 which meant I didn't have much of a lunch break left. Not pleased. This is my 2nd so-so Cucumba experience. Friendly staff but not great skills.

Easy to book multiple treatments, also flexible to adjust timing as required. Thorough and attentive service for gel soak-off, better and kinder treatment for this than at other salons. Great location. Shame they don't open on Sundays...!

I tend to use this salon for convenience as it's so close to my work, and fairly good value considering how much you can end up paying for threading elsewhere. I've had the same beautician treat me a couple of times and she's polite, but can seem a bit rushed.
