We booked a last minute break at Sweeny's, we had seen it on several recent visits to Keswick and it always appeared to be popular. We were surprised at how quiet Keswick town centre was as the weather was really good for the time of year. We booked in and were shown to our room (2) which overlooked the street...

We found the room quite small and the food quite basic, it isnt somewhere we would recommend to anyone, werent very happy with the breakfast, watch out for the chap who cooks breakfast, he seems to be in his 50s or there abouts, we noted him smoking near the kitchen area, not pleased at all.

Thank you for your comments and we are sorry that you did not entirely enjoy your stay. We have tried to carry out a full and thorough investigation, however this has been difficult in the absence of what was specifically wrong with your breakfast and what you found basic about the food. We have investigated the allegation of staff smoking...

Me and my boyfriend regularly go for a lunch or dinner to Sweeney's. We always enjoy our meals there; they are tasty, nicely presented and generous. Staff are friendly and helpful. There's a nice ambiance both upstairs and downstairs at Sweeney's. They definitely serve nice bar meals there.

When I cam to the Lake District first time in 2007, I had the best experience ever! I have found Sweeney's Bar. The staff was very friendly, and they do accomodation as well. The rooms are amazing and they have decent prices. Since then, I always come back to Sweeney's where they've got the best local real ales and the...

We ate at Sweeney's on a Friday night in September 2011. The food was average (we both had the steaks although my wife had ordered Salmon and it wasn't until 15 minute later that they told us they'd run out). The wine was OK but at circa £15 for the cheapest bottle we'd had better value before. Service was slow...

Booked the room at the last minute to celebrate my birthday. The place is superbly located in the centre of town although parking in the public car park can work out quite expensive (especially as you need to pay for the next morning also). The place is primarily a restaurant so wasn't expecting too much with regards the room. The...
