We frequently visit the Washington Central for our lunch but the last two visits have been completely different, it's been chaotic and there has been no atmosphere/ bad atmosphere! We come there for good food and service, I understand trying something new with the table service but you need to make sure you have a good plan of action before... More

Stayed one night, visiting a party held in the hotel. Extremely well trained staff.. courteous, helpful and thoroughly professional. The room was of a high standard with every facility one could wish for, and could expect at such a reasonable price. Breakfast was excellent and again served by top quality staff.

This place is a great place to stop off for lunch, they do a great sandwich and soup offer and the chips are really nice homemade ones. They also make lovely toasties and have a great selection of cakes. However the drinks can be quite expensive.

Slightly fawlty towers. Strange room layouts round an atrium. Also decor slightly dated but still perfectly acceptable. Excellent rooms, good gym facilities. Above all extremely pleasant staff and superb food. The evening meal deal at £25 for 3 courses and wine was first class and the breakfast choice was excellent. I had smoked haddock and poached eggs. Only fault is... More
