Amazon Commercial Washing Machine from Armstrong Meets all the Requirements of Cardiff Nursing Home

The Lakeside House Nursing Home close to the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff has a total of 50 beds for long term residents requiring various levels of nursing care, including some double rooms, many of which have en suite facilities. Housed in an attractively extended period building with a large garden area which residents can use during the summer, the home prides itself on the quality of its care and the range of activities laid on for residents.

All the laundry – bedding, towels, kitchen and dining room items, and personal clothing – is done on site by dedicated laundry staff and the laundry is in operation from 7am to 4pm every day, with care staff often doing additional urgent items during the evenings. Just over a year ago a new commercial washing machine was needed and Phil Cliffe, the owner of the home, looked at options from various suppliers. His choice was an Amazon HSF 14kg commercial washing machine from Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems which, according to Jayne Pointer, General Manager of the home, offered the best value while meeting all the specifications the home required. “We opted for Armstrong’s fixed price hire scheme,” they told us, “as this helps us with budgeting and we know that if ever there is a problem, there will be no nasty financial surprise. We are very happy with the performance of the machine.”

What our clients say...

  • “Our machines have come from several suppliers – there is a big difference in the standards of support we receive and Armstrong gets 10 out of 10 – their service has been consistently excellent over several years and when you’re as busy as we are, that’s very important.”

    Jacqui Butler

  • “It’s important to get the right equipment for the job, too small and it won’t do it properly, too big and you are wasting money, energy and space. It is also important to deal with a company you trust to supply reliable equipment and give you the support you need. As expected, the installation went smoothly, we have never had the slightest problem and I know Armstrong will deal with it if we do.”

    Colin Farquharson, St Ermin’s Hotel

  • “Our relationship with Armstrong goes back a long way, and they continue to give us excellent service and extremely reliable equipment.”
