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

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
