Stayed here for one night and did what I needed which was a bed for the night. At £55 a little more expensive than staying as I normally do in a Travelodge. Room was clean and comfortable and a bonus double bed when was only expecting a single from the pictures on Booking.com. Would stay here again if in the... More

The Sleepwell Inn is the sister hotel of the Washington Central Hotel. This is a smaller hotel and was room omly. This hotel however was extremely clean and room sizes were larger than normal. The interior of the hotel is impressive and worth viewing. Wouldn't recommend for families due to no breakfast being available. There is no service at this... More

We made a last minute (on the day) booking via booking.com to stay here as we were passing through to visit Keswick. The Sleepwell is part of the Central Hotel which is located just across the street and is where check-in takes place. We were surprised when we got our keys and returned to our building; to find the beautifully... More

As a town centre hotel noise can be an issue at times from the nearby roads or local bars. We are a privately owned family establishment, managed from The Washington Central hotel. So... More

We stayed here for a long weekend. I was contacted by one of the staff to ask what time we expected to be arriving as we had resquested an early check in. (Yes, they do do them!) Imagine the surprise when the receptionist from the hotel over the road advises that we could get into our room until 2pm! What... More

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
