I visited the coffee shop on Easter Saturday to discover there was a whole new set up. The place seemed in chaos and all the lovely team of staff who work in there seemed really stressed and not there normal chirpy happy selves. All I can say is why try to fix something which wasn't broken in the first place!!!

Any time I'm in Workington with my sister or daughter we eat here and always enjoy the food. We were there on Tuesday and it was really busy and the staff seemed really stressed as they now have waitress service at the tables but some customers were still going to the counter to place orders so it was a bit...

A few colleagues and I stayed at the Washington while working in the area. The hotel is very clean and the rooms spacious. I do think that the place could do with a bit of modernisation. The pool area behind reception looks particularly dated and the bar looks dated also. The staff are very friendly but did keep asking every... More

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.

We had a 3 night break at the Washington Central Hotel in Workington and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel, staff, restaurant, pool, steam room, gym and the Town itself. A very comfy, warm room and slept well. Decent leisure facilities and a big pool, although we were somewhat disappointed it closed at 7.30pm on Saturday and Sunday. The staff were... More

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.
