Stayed for quite a while here on business. Staff are fantasic and friendly. Rooms have all the amenities you could require. Can be a little noisy on a Thursday if you are on the front of the hotel, but I tended not to notice after a while. Food is excellent. Nice selection and not too overpriced for a hotel. Definately...

We have previously stayed at The Washington Central hotel and had a genuinely wonderful stay. So when we recently saw an offer to stay in the new 'Deluxe rooms' which included dinner, we enquired and booked two double rooms. The new Deluxe rooms are simply wonderful, loads of room, reclining chairs and sofas, huge and oh so comfortable double beds,... More

Just returned from a superb 2 day stay at the Washington Hotel in Workington. From the initial check in to our check out departure the service was impeccable, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was modern, spotlessly clean and reflected the high standard throughout the hotel.We had dinner in the hotel's refurbished and modernised Bistro dining room and enjoyed... More

Worst stay EVER…………. The Washington Hotel also has an adjacent hotel (The Sleepwell) and I decided to book a room there as I had a social event to attend in Workington. I can only say it was the WORST stay EVER……….. The Sleepwell has no reception and is not ‘manned’ or ‘checked’ on during the night. When I stayed, there... More

During the past few weeks I have been conducting an investigation into your observations. In order to complete this in a thorough manner, I needed to speak to all residential guests... More

The Hotel Staff were very pleasant and the facilities are great and the room we had (22) was ok not much of a view but you are in the Town centre after all. The breakfast was excellent with a good choice and... More
