There are a number of hotels in Workington but I picked the Washington Central even though it was the most expensive by far (£76 single room) because i wanted a 'relaxing' overnight stop! I rang the Hotel on the Friday to confirm my booking and check on local restaurants they however failed to explain the parking arrangements? So arriving at... More

Room - Deluxe Room 80 - This is the biggest hotel room I have ever been in, very clean and beautifully decorated. The bathroom was lovely with a TV in it. Really enjoyed my bubble bath relaxing watching TV. The room was very hot and the window did not really let in much air to the big room so it... More

We have just stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. It was a very comfortable hotel with 2 resident lounges, large bar, restaurant, swimming pool and gym. The breakfasts are tasty and of very generous portions. Evening meals are the same. The rooms are a decent size, very clean and comfortable. However, they are very hot, even with the central...

We have just spent three nights at this very pleasant hotel whilst on a coach tour of the Lake District organised by Diamond Holidays. We were very happy with the facilities provided by the hotel. Our bedroom was compact but nicely furnished and the en suite bathroom was a very good size. There were plenty of comfortable public areas and... More

Stayed here when on a long weekend coach trip to the lakes. Our room was of a good size and we could see over the town through the round window, although some people said their rooms were small. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom spotless. Our tour operator must have negotiated a good price as the port and... More

I eventualy arrived at the hotel at half past 8, the staff were warm and welcoming, and imstantly... More

Good Evening Freddie, Hope your journey back to Derby was not as stressful as your trip to west Cumbria. However we are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us and found all the staff to be most warm and welcoming. You could have stayed a while longer in the Jacuzzi, as the pool and Gym does not actually close... More
