Case Studies

Diglis House Hotel

From signed contracts to successful installation in 11 days! WASHCO complete a tight laundry turnaround for the reopening of Diglis House Hotel in time for the lifting of lockdown restrictions.


After being given the green light to reopen as restrictions were eased, it was all systems go in preparation for the busy staycation season ahead. Diglis House Hotel’s previous laundry equipment had been removed during lockdown after their rental contract came to an end, so they enlisted the help of WASHCO to come up with a quick and effective solution.


A tight turnaround

With just a matter of weeks before they were scheduled to reopen, WASHCO were swiftly out to Diglis House Hotel to carry out a site survey and put in a proposal for the project on the same day.

High-performance equipment

The proposal covered new equipment that would meet their operational and capacity requirements. As the laundry would need remedial work to bring it up to the latest gas safe standards, it was agreed that a switch from gas dryers to Speed Queen electric dryers would be the most timely and effective option to ensure the hotel could open on time.

To cope with the copious amount of laundry generated during peak season, WASHCO recommended:

  • 2 x Miele PWM307 Drain Pump Washing Machine
  • 2 x Schulthess 8kg Drain Pump Washing Machine
  • 1 x Primus SDS10 Stack Electric Dryer
  • 1 x Lower Front Control FDE Dryer
  • 4 x Plinths to suit washing machines


Installation was completed just 11 days after their contract was signed. In all, WASHCO’s comprehensive service and support meant that it took less than a month from the initial enquiry for everything to be installed, ready to welcome guests back for the British summer.

Debra Jones, General Manager at Diglis House Hotel commented: “WASHCO have been brilliant and were paramount in us opening on time for a summer of staycations. The team were highly professional and completed the installation swiftly, with minimal disruption. Our laundry staff are delighted with the new machines.”
