Stayed for two nights. The bar is really busy, the meals are tasty and well presented. The room was nice, the bathroom small. The staff were pleasant and the freshly cooked breakfast was tasty, quality scoff! No parking but there is a safe secure car park a minute away, a car park concession would be nice.

Excellent one night stay. Rooms very good, staff helpful and friendly, very nice breakfast. Unfortunately too late to book a meal but looked lovely. Only down side having a front room was the noise from the street. Would highly recommend it and will be coming back.

There are great walks to be had nearby that are all clearly signposted. The centre and main shopping streets , arcades etc are only a couple of... More

The staff were always helpful, the room was clean and quite spacious (23) and the food - both evening meal and breakfast - were excellent. Choice of ales in the... More

Ate here on a Saturday at 6.30. The rooms to the rear are less pub like and we sat in one with a deep glass topped well, which was rather quirky. The food was well cooked and presented and portion sizes weren't too large. The menu had a limited selection of main meals but there were a couple of specials... More

Located right in the heart of the city, but in a reasonably quiet area, but so handy for everything..... We parked 5 mins away, near Sainsburys, £20 for 48 hours,( no where in Lancaster is... More

The hotel is well situated for all the local amenities including the castle and judges lodgings. The people were very friendly, he room was clean and comfortable and the food was a reasonable standard. There is no on site parking and free unlimited road parking is only available overnight. The recommended parking, which was both secure and close by, cost... More

Accommodation 7/10. Nice room. Quiet enough. Spacious en suite. Comfortable bed. Uneven floor( although it is old ) Bar/Restaurant 8/10. Lovely bar and eating areas. Didn't have lunch or dinner so can't comment on food. Breakfast 3/10. Very strange...even though we asked for vegetarian breakfasts, which were basically minus bacon and sausage(with no vegetarian alternatives), thus being a lot cheaper... More

Just visited the sun hotel for Breakfast. Prices are fair and the welcome very friendly. We waited 40 minutes for our food and watched as customers who ordered after us Got served. Eventually received food, very good quality but very undercooked. The toasted arrived 5 minutes after we ordered so we ate it all waiting for the breakfast. Such a... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review after your visit. I believe you came for breakfast with us on Sunday morning which is often our busiest breakfast service of the week. As we freshly prepare each order regrettably customers can sometimes experience a wait on their food but hopefully our staff kept you well informed as you... More
