I stayed at The Sun Inn with a friend for 2 nights. The room we were given was grotty and definitely needed updating, badly. Wallpaper was peeling, there was damp right up the bathroom wall and pipes were very visible in the bedroom. On the plus side, downstairs was quite nice and the staff were friendly. I wouldn't stay here... More

Where is Eastwood, I hear people ask. Well, it is just west of Nottingham. And it is the birthplace of D.H. Lawrence (of "Lady Chatterley"-fame, but actually one of the great authors of the twentieth century). We wanted to see his birthplace and visit the D.H. Lawrence Heritage Centre in Eastwood. But where do you spend the night in a... More

I have stayed in Eastwood many, many times and this time we booked in at the above hotel. From the outside the hotel looks large and welcoming. The bar is large and décor to match the age of the hotel. Staff behind the bar are friendly and efficient. Check-in only took a matter of minutes and we were shown to... More

We visited the Sun Inn for a meal on a Friday lunchtime which was very good value for money and nicely cooked. The service was very poor though, I had to wait at the bar for ages to get served, another customer eventually went off to find someone to serve us. We then had to wait a long time for... More

Thank you for your review, I have now had an opportunity to look into this a little further. Whilst we did have a large party to serve in the dining room, this does not serve as an excuse for the poor service you received from us on your recent visit. Can I take this opportunity to sincerely apologise for the... More

"Greeted" at reception/ bar, paid on arrival (maybe so don't refuse to pay!) room was a single as booked but having you're coffee/ tea etc on a dirty plate is not the best start! Bathroom is corridor like and not exactly pleasant! Go to get into get, bed is quite hard, not too much of an issue, putting you're hand... More

Booked at short notice as I was asked to work in Nottingham for a week, I was unable to get anything close to where I was working within the allowed budget. Found the hotel easy enough as the main road goes right past it. Overnight parking next to the hotel is free from 6 pm to 8 am which was... More

I visited the Sun inn on Monday, I was downstairs in the pub all night, I got to know a few of the regulars and thought the bar staff were very cheerful! I also had something to eat and it was the best 'pub grub' I had tried in a while. Although the rooms were average, it was a bed... More

Perfectly adequate no frills budget accommodation. Staff are cheerful and helpful. I didn't eat so can't comment on the quality oif the food but it certainly looked like good value. please note VERY limited on site parking. Room was clean but sheets -though obviously washed- were are bit stained. The Ensuite had a strong smell that was (understandably) pub-ish.

4 of us booked in for a one night stay. We were asked to pay on arrival which was a mistake. The rooms where so damp the paper was peeling off the wall, the amount of mold was a health hazard, you could put your fingers in the cracks in the wall, and the staff obviously have no concept of... More

Very friendly place to stay. It is relativity cheap to stay, and the rooms are pretty average, but if all you are really wanting is a room to sleep in, it is perfect. There is a very nice bar which is used by the locals (and is very friendly). The staff are very helpful and courteous. I would stay again.
