All in all it was a good stay, perfect location, but for not too much money i think the owner could update the rooms based on the price charged, they are a little dated, the shower was pointless as the showerhead sprayed so wide it was nearly impossible to shower with. It was a good corner bath however so we... More

We phoned ahead as we were late arriving at our hotel and weren't sure if food was still being served. Staff were very welcome and accommodating and even asked the kitchen staff to stay after they were finished shift to cook for us! Food was amazing and beautiful setting with a real fire going, it felt so relaxing. Highly recommended... More

I have stayed at The Sun several times over the last few years. It has one of the best situations in the Lake District, in a friendly accessible village with spectacular views all around. There is plenty to do in the area and I like the historical connections of The Sun. The rooms are very reasonably priced and tastefully furnished.... More

I stayed at the Sun for a week in November 2015, and had a great stay. The beer was outstanding, the staff were very friendly and welcoming, making me feel at home from the start, the room and bed were very comfortable, and the breakfasts were great, in a light and airy dining room with good views. There was a... More

The website looked promising, but some bad Tripadvisor reviews. We still thought we'd give The Sun a try for a lunchtime visit and make our own minds up. Me and my husband both went for sausage and mash - not a great deal else to choose from on the lunchtime menu. This has to be the most expensive sausage (at... More

Visited the Sun with a group of friends for a meal and a beer. There was a nice selection of ales on and everyone I tasted was well kept and tasted good. The locals seemed friendly and the staff also. There is a cracking fireplace (which I would love to have in my own house) in the bar and some... More

Popped in here during our stay in Coniston recently. Glorious setting over the village and spent a while getting my bearings in this rambling place with a few other customers. Lovely long bar area with what seemed to be a great range of beers and so I waited for the bar person who I assumed was busy elsewhere. And waited.... More

This lovely pub and hotel is situated very close to the Donald Campbell water sports centre on the edge of lake Coniston. It has a small awkward car park down the hill from the Hotel but worth the journey. Friendly efficient staff serve freshly made individual lunch dishes from a good menu which can be washed down with some lovely... More

Stopped for one night whilst walking in the area with a friend and our 2 dogs. Arrived at 10.30am and was greeted by the very friendly landlady. As our room was available we could check straight in. The bar is lovely with many old features and some cracking real ales. We couldn't resist and even tried one there and then... More
