We booked this last min the day before, and arrived at 4pm on 30th Aug, On arrival we were shown to our room (number 2), this room was clean, very spacious for my wife, and 4 year old to share. No complaints so far. The towels were clean, and there were, tea and coffee facilities in the room together with... More

Going in after seeing the great price menu on board outside we were greeted with a warm welcome. I ordered a mozzarella and tomatoe panini .very large and very tasty meal with a good helping of side salad and chips.although not busy when we went in you can tell its popular because of the price and good quality of food

A last minute decision to eat late on a Friday evening in Keswick in mid-August was met with the usual "full" or "too late"....with the exception of Sweeney's. We didn't order until after 9 so didn't expect too much in the way of service or gastronomic delights but were proven wrong on both counts. The food came astonishingly quick and... More

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

I stayed a week ago, I popped in for home made chicken soup and vegetable soup with a hot roll and glass of water with ice and lemon and stayed the night. 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
