I got married at this venue last weekend, I can honestly say that I couldn't have asked for anything more. The room we stayed in was spotless. When the food came out there was hardly no wait. They kept everything running smoothly. Thank you so much for a fantastic day

The plates were warm but the food was cool, also the vegetarian food was quite bland, and service slow. the lemon tart was the only course I enjoyed as it had a nice tangy flavor, I understand catering for 40 people at once is difficult, but many people had left before coffee and mints were served.

Thank you for your feed back it is much appreciated and also highlights that a review is the personnel experience and opinion of the individual leaving it. As the review after this reflects your granddaughter experience of her wedding here that day.Also just a comment from the hotel regarding the slow service of coffee which I am sorry wasn't ordered or paid for by your hosts so this would explain why you were waiting a long time for it.Please accept our apologies if we didn't meet your expectations as we aim to deliver on every level.

We have had many enjoyable lunches at The Sweeney and looked forward to this one but oh dear it was dreadful. The menu was plonked in passing on the table with no words or a smile, then we were challenged about their being 4 of us when we were were informed we had booked for 5.

The bread was accompanied by hard curls of butter and we asked if they could be any softer but on its return it was just as hard. Surely ten seconds in the microwave would have been possible?
On taking away the plates and vegetables some cauliflower fell off and landed on my friend's back on to the back of the chair and when this was pointed out to the young waiter , he gave a cursory glance and said "it's alright!" No apology or care shown whatsoever.
The only other person was a young waitress who took the order for my friends fruit salad but without sorbet , asking if she might have cream instead. It was no surprise to find the sorbet arrive and no apology came for the error.
There did not seem anyone senior to complain to but this is the first time I have never left a tip at any restaurant or cafe. Just some charm, care and polite attention would have lifted this occasion no end. The food was very reasonable and the menu inviting but it did not make up for the dreadful service .

On returning from a short break we thought we would book a night in sweeney hall, we asked a young man if he had a room for the night, he went to check then came back and said they were full! We decided to come straight home. On our return I went on the net and there was a double room for that night!! We were really annoyed and disappointed, we have emailed sweeney hall twice hoping to get some kind of explaination! But we have not had a reply, this was our first trip away without our teenage daughters!

Room Tip: If you are hard working people DONT GO!!!! find a hotel that is more welcoming

Thank you for the feed back.it is much appreciated although on this occasion I would like to point out that our bboking site is live and can change from minute to minute if we receive a cancellation.This would then show the availability of a room that you saw on returning home.We also try to reply to emails on the day we recieve them and have no record of either of your emails.I can only assume they have for some reason they have gone into spam or the email used was not correct.No hotel likes to turn away business so please be assured that a double room was not available when you visited the hotel.

My husband and I stayed here for one night while visiting family close by. We had been to a family wedding at the Hotel before but never stayed there. We had a very nice room overlooking the gardens and fields beyond with sheep. The only disappointment was when we went down for breakfast on Sunday morning and they were clearly running late. The young girl who served us although pleasant was not organised. The shower wasn't working so we had to have a bath but we mentioned it when we checked it and we got an apology so it was just one of those things.
