Stayed for a couple of nights in room 4, which is a large corner room on the second floor. The room was spotless, had crisp clean sheets on a comfortable bed. The en-suite was also immaculate and nicely fitted, power shower too. Towels were bright white and soft. Sweeney's is ideally located just off the main square and the manager... More

Ate here last Sunday (2 adults, 3 children). Worst roast beef dinner I can remember and the childrens' chicken nuggets had been fried up a few times!! On asking for the bill, we noticed we were being charged for an extra jacket potato that we didn't have - £6. Pointed this out and was told we could put it towards... More

We dined in Sweeny's over the weekend, The food was awful, we only ordered a Roast and they could not get that right. The Pork was over cooked so it was dry and hard, the vegetables were so hard that we were in fear of breaking our teeth. The Gravy was mad with Gravy Granules which had not dissolved. All... More

Had a drink sitting out in the sunny beer garden. Had room 2 which was lovely, modern clean and comfortable. Had the two course evening meal - Caesar... More

We arrived and we're checked in by the receptionist, Alan, a very quietly spoken but pleasant chap. Whilst in the bar later the barman, Alan, served our drinks. In the morning the waiter, Alan, took our breakfast order after opening up. He then cooked our breakfast before settling our bill. Some reviews have likened this hotel to Fawlty Towers but... More

Excellent location and fantastic rooms as we have a dog. Alan the manager is fantastic too, nothing's a problem. We haven't eaten here other than breakfast which is always good. All in all we love it.

Stayed here for 2 nights in May 2014. Big comfy room (room 4), and excellent location - right on the main road near all the restaurants and pubs. But room was a bit tired, slight scruffy paintwork, no fuil mirror and the light over the mirror in the bathroom was broken. Breakfast was ok, but not brilliant. Glasses were really... More

This was so bad we left before our food had arrived Looks nice enough from the outside, strangely quiet once sat down. The waitresses were very sweet but couldn't really speak English, the wine was poor quality (in keeping with the tacky laminated menus), we ordered and it took over 40 minutes for the manager to inform us that they...
