Visited twice over the festive period for family meals, Christmas Eve and New Year's Day. Both occasions were spot on, really friendly attentive service, the food excellent and to a high standard. Very nice surroundings in the bistro and bar area, with a relaxed feel. Well done to all the staff, for making our experience this year at the Washington...

Dear carol, It is with obvious sadness and regret from ourselves, that on your recent visit to the Central Coffee shop. You experienced a level of service that was not to our normally very high standards. We can get 'caught out' sometimes by the volume of customers ' in town' during the busy festive season. However to wait as long...

Brilliant night had by all at the Abba Tribute Night. Food was fab and plenty of it, entertainment fantastic. Only downside £4.20 for a pint of warm flat Fosters and £1.80 for half a pint of coke!! That said we would go back.

Hi Karen, Graet to hear that you had a thouroughly enjoyable evening attending our 70's and 80's Fancy dress party. The 'party atmosphere' that evening, was indeed 'bouyant' but a great night was had by all. We are glad you enjoyed the food, as it is often a challenge catering for and pleasing nearly 250 guests. We are already planning...

I stayed for one night as part of a business trip to Workington.

My wife and I regularly use this hotel for work-related meetings and also visit 'out of hours' to relax. The staff are always friendly, professional and attentive. The food and drink are appropriately priced and of good quality. The sofa area is a great place to chill out and read a newspaper, browse through a book from the extensive collection,...

Hello Nick, I genuinely think that a review placed by regular customer or guest often gives the most balanced perspective. Having used the hotels facilities on many occasions for meeting, interviews, lunches, dinners and the occasional party event. You have been able to 'judge' and consequently comment on the levels of service, cuisine, value for money and relaxed atmosphere. Based...

Having seen this hotel advertised on Groupon, my family (me, my wife, my almost 2 year old daughter) travelled from Pontefract to enjoy a holiday getaway in the Lake District, and I have to say - we had a lovely time. Workington itself is more a town centre, not a picturesque resort - but pretty much the entire Lake District...
