Washington is very conveniently located, close to the University, the Suspension Bridge and Clifton Village. Staff are very friendly and helpful and breakfast is copious and excellent. The serving of fresh fruit and real coffee in the room was a very nice detail.

Don't go! Simple as that It is the worst hotel in which I've ever been. The carpet was so old, used, dirty; the bathroom was dirty, there weren't shampoo or other basic things. Terrible experience. Terrible Terrible Terrible Terrible Terrible Terrible Terrible

Great staff, nice friendly atmosphere, good breakfast and comfy bed - on the downside, the room was a little shabby. I loved the food and ambience at Racks (Clifton Hotel just down the road), and there are also lots of places to eat within 5 minutes walk, e.g. Jamie's Italian.

I took a bit of a gamble with this hotel and took the reviews with a pinch of salt. I wish I'd listened. We wanted somewhere close to the cricket ground which it was. For this, the location was good. We slept terribly on the first night though, to the point where we didn't even stay the second night. Reception... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here on the 16th of August 2014 and we're glad it was only for the one night. We stayed in room 11. The hotel staff were pleasant and helpful but not really enthusiastic. The room was tired and the bathroom was horrible. The sink has many small chips to the inside of the basin that... More

It's quite obvious that the wealthy proprieter just doesn't give a hoot. If he did, he'd give all guests 24 hour free wifi access ( which should be a given anywhere, anyway) to compensate for the general disrepair in the rooms and communal areas. The manager must be pulling her hair out. The walls are dirty, the carpets filthy and... More
