This hotel was the worst place we stayed in in the uk. The bathroom was very grubby, there was mould all through the shower and the water glasses in the room had not been washed from the previous people! Went to turn on the shower and the hot water didn't work! The bed also had a funny smell. The owner... More

The room was very clean & comfortable. The Bar area hosts an open coal fire, which added to the excellent ambiance of the Pub... More

It is not often i would write a review on tripadvisor but our recent experience at The Sun Inn in Coniston defiantly merits one. Food fantastic and Marcus the chef could not have been more helpful. Always great to see someone so proud of what they do. Young Kyle working behind the bar provided a top class service to our... More

After a bracing walk in the Coniston countryside our party of 14 descended on The Sun for a 50th Birthday celebration and were not disappointed. As soon as we entered the bar we were met with a very warm welcome by Sharon and her staff who had prepared a special menu for our party. Having sampled the fine Lakeland ales... More

A group of us had a social evening in The Sun recently, where we all met for food. Many of us had eaten there before and the food had been good to excellent, but on this occasion it couldn't have been more different; the previously good menu had become one limited A4 sheet, and the specials board was blank! Of... More

Hello Mike, We are very sorry you did not enjoy your time here. If you had mentioned at the time there was a problem, we would have had the opportunity to evaluate and rectify any issues. Unfortunately you did not. We have been closed for the last few weeks and can only assume you visited just after the New Year... More

We used the Sun as a base for our kids fashion wear model shoot 3rd, 4th, 5th Jan 2014. Not only were we really well looked after, but owners Sharon and Alan also took the time out to show us some really interesting local locations - in particular Cathedral Caves. The rooms were well appointed with great views (especially room... More

My wife and I stayed at a cottage in Coniston for the Christmas week and decided to eat out on Christmas Eve. Having visited the Sun on numerous occasions in the past, and it being in The Good Pub Guide, this was our choice - big mistake! I'd already had a pint of Coniston Old Man Ale down at the... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night last weekend on a last minute booking and really enjoyed our stay. We were met with a smile on our arrival and were put in room 5, which was a bit on the small side, but suited us fine. It was clean, comfy and warm. TV was ok, as was en-suite... More
