Good afternoon Steve, Thank you very much for your comments following your recent stay at The Sleepwell Inn. We are obviously sorry that you did not get a ideal nights sleep due to the street noise. We do however endeavour, wherever possible to allocate rooms when available away from the front street, please ask on your next visit. We are grateful for your positive comments on the facility, cleanliness and the staff. We hope that we can one day welcome you back to the Sleepwell Inn or Washington Central Hotel for a truly positive experience. Kindest regards, Keith

Was pleasantly surprised when I got to the single room. Looked recently refurbished and seemed perfectly fine. Bed is very high from the floor. Bathroom lovely. Had a shower though, and was only when getting out of the shower, found that the towel had obviously been covered in

Good afternoon Paul, A review expressing both negative and positive aspects of your recent stay, shows that you have taken time to consider a balanced assessment. I am sorry for the codition of the bathroom linen, and the spent bulb...these should not have been overlooked, although it is pleasing that you found the levels of houskeeping generally to be 'spotless' . Due to bank charges it is unfortunate that we now levy a 3% surcharge on credit cards, however debit cards incur no charge at all, a note for your next visit. Many thanks for your review. Keith.

Good afternoon Mr and Mrs Dorans, Thank you for taking your valuable time to post a review on trip advisor. We value all reviews whether they are of a positive or negative nature, unfortunately on this occasion your review falls into the latter category. Your observations on the levels of housekeeping, do surprise myself and the housekeeping team, as we are often praised by other guests and the hotel inspectors for our consistently high levels of cleanliness. If on arrival, you felt that your bathroom was not entirely to your satisfaction, we would have responded immediately, had you reported this and brought it to our attention upon entering your guest room. Equally any issues with the plumbing could a have been reported to reception or the night manager, again giving us the opportunity to investigate and rectify. Should you be visiting Workington in the near future please call me personally, this may give us the opportunity to provide you with a more positive experience of our facilities. Kindest regards, Keith

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

Aimee, thank you for your reservation and a genuine accurate review of our Sleepwell Inn facility. Your appreciation of the décor, maintenance and cleanliness is most welcome. 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 if you have cause to visit West Cumbria in the near future, please call us direct for the best deal. Regards, Keith.
