Booked a table for this restaurant thinking it would be busy as it was between Christmas and New Year.This place looks really good from the outside but once we set foot inside our expectations changed.The upstairs looked relatively empty but we were left to stand on a landing which seemed to last for an eternity before someone attended us.We were...

We have just returned from a mid week stay at sweeneys. The room was small but very clean and well equipped (kettle, biscuits, toiletries, full size wardrobe) and tremendous value at only £50 bed and breakfast. I can't comment on the bar or restaurant as it was being refurbished during our stay (there was no noise or disruption). Because of... More

This was the first restaurant we went to at our stay in Keswick. The menu looked good and the inside of the restaurateur looked very nice so we decided to eat here. We were the only guests in the restaurant at this point as we assumed we'd arrived a little early (now I assume it's because of their lack of... More

Coming to the end if our 6 night stay and my husband and I are both in agreement this little place is excellent. Free Parking is only a 3 minute walk away so there was no problem. We stayed in room 2 which is a family room, one double, one single and a pull out. Room is fresh, bright and... More

Whilst visiting Keswick lakes had a nice lunch in here. We both had the steak which was very nice served with chips, mushroom and tomato. Paul also had the broccoli and Stilton soup and the Eton mess which was very well presented. We both had a drink Paul had manners and I had a pint of coke and it came... More

We stayed here for the location which is bang in the centre of Keswick, no private parking so you have to either find free street parking & walk back or pay at the Car Park accross the road which works out a bit steep when staying for a while. The Hotel Staff are all very friendly and cant do enough... More

We had to wait nearly 15 minutes, once shown to our table, before we even got a menu. The four stars for service was, as we found out, the waitress was by herself, looking after about a dozen tables; cleaning them, showing customers to tables, taking orders, serving food, taking payment. In light of that she was very pleasant and... More

On the plus side Sweeney's is in the centre of Keswick, close to all the amenities and sights. Unfortunately the rooms are small and basic which is not reflected in the price of £90 per night which we thought well above the average for the area. Our bedroom window was above the vent for the kitchen which was unpleasant at... More
