Following a recommendation by the owner of the lodge that we were staying in for a week we decided to book a table at the restaurant. We popped in on the Saturday afternoon to book the table and check that it was ok to bring the family dog along. We booked the table for 6 of us plus the dog... More

Stayed 3 nights and wish we hadn't bothered. Followed the positive reviews we had seen on Trip Advisor and could not have been more disappointed. The hotel had changed hand less than a week prior and it was in a state of disarray. The rooms were dirty and the carpets filthy mainly due to dogs having been allowed in the... More

Our family of five were here a few years ago and not one of us was happy with our food. We ordered roast dinners and they looked and tasted more like gruel. Fast forward seven years and my partner and I decided to give the food another chance. The exterior decor had been upgraded and we trusted the food would... More

Staying local for a week and thought we would see what the food was like. We have been back twice so far as the food is fantastic with portions to match. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Would recommend this hotel.

Stayed here a couple of weeks ago for 3 nights. Had a front-facing room which overlooked the main road. The road noise was so loud that I did not sleep for 3 nights. The hotel is flattered by its website and was not worth the money. The room was also tatty with the bedroom carpet being dirty and mould on... More

Pint of prawns was lovely but more like half a pint of lettuce with half a pint of king prawns on top. I was expecting a full pint to go at , but maybe for... More

We've just returned home from a great trip to the Lake District and while there we stayed at The Sun Hotel. The location is fantastic and we were able to get to all that we wanted to see easily and in a decent amount of time. Every member of the staff that we spoke with was very friendly and super... More

Had a superb gourmet burger here on Friday and will be back for more. Staff are cheerful and welcoming. Good beers to be had and when weather permits a very pleasant garden area. Well worth a visit and very handy location between Ambleside and Windermere if your travelling in the lakes via A591

We went out to celebrate a birthday tea today and the birthday boy chose The Sun hotel. On walking in it was nice to see the side doors opened to let the breeze in as the temperature was climbing a fair bit this afternoon. We were initially served by James who was polite and friendly with a ready smile. We... More
