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

if you like chain hotels with wide corridors fast lifts and indifferent staff this is not the place for you. All the staff were very friendly and offered porterge to our downstairs room. We booked direct so got the free wi fi which worked perfectly all weekend and was vital to keep updated on the weather for the Balloon festival.... 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

I like to keep my privacy. I asked twice that I didn't want ANY housekeeping during our two nights stay. The first time when we arrived, the second time when we left the hotel on the morning, the day after. They did enter though. The rest is great.

The only thing that stopped this being a "1 star terrible" review was the breakfast, but this wouldn't have been the case if we had eaten 10mins later, when food hadn't been replenished and greatly lessening the choice. This was definitely not worth the £109 charged....it was a slightly upmarket kiss-me-quick B&B being tired in it's appearance. There were damp... More

I stayed at The Washington for 1 night on 19th July. The lady that greeted me on the reception was pleasant and gave me directions to walk into town. However, I was very disappointed with my single en-suite bedroom (Room 72?). The room was very small, the window did not lock as the handle was half snapped off. A catch... More

Stayed here for a few days on a recent trip. It was in convenient spot for my trip and it is certainly a nice area to stay in. The hotel, however, was less than ideal.

Our stay at The Washington with my girlfriend was really nice. The room was clean, the staff was extremely helpful and friendly with a smile on their face, no matter what our claims were. The location is really close to the city centre, the breakfast was massive and delicious. The perfect stay.
