Recently stayed at The Sleepwell Inn, (last weekend). We know Workington well and knew this converted bar is very well located right in the centre of town, so great for night life, the closest and one of the busiest bars in town, Yankees only about 25 metres away. The reception is unfortunately located in the sister hotel about 150 metres... More

The bedroom was fine, clean and tidy, although the bed was very hard and one of the chairs was a little tired. The staff at the reception (in the Washington Hotel across the road) were helpful and cheerful despite our delayed late night check-in. The breakfast, also across the road, was good and again the staff were helpful and friendly.... More

Used this hotel as a base to start the coast to coast cycle route. It's sister hotel is across the road, where you leave all your kit. The hotel is not staffed and you get a key entry card again at the sister hotel. Rooms are ok, clean and tidy, the beds are poor, very hard and cheap quality, as... More

We booked this on the day for an over night stay and found the hotel is actually attached to the Washington hotel and leisure centre across the road. The main hotel has excellent facilities but cannot be used by sleepwell residents, except for the breakfast bar which was excellent. This served up a fantastic range of english and continental breakfasts... More

We have now used the sleepwell on several occasions. Simple but well presented rooms, clean fresh bedding, just a nice homely yet modern feel, last used 2 weeks ago and upon requesting a third night not a problem, polite staff, great location situated on the main street, highly recommended.

It was nice of them to... More

I would agree with the previous reviewer, this is no four star hotel but then neither is the price. It seemed new to me and extremely clean with a comfy bed. I stayed in a travel lodge this week and it didnt even have towels, so the comparison is not fair. Breakfast was good as usual at the Washington Central... More
