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

We decided to stay here for a 2 nights break on a thursday and friday night, cost £170, the travelodge was going to be £140. 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

With my wife and son we stayed for one night. The bedrooms were very clean with modern furnishings but compact. All of the staff are excellent and attentive. The breakfast was substantial. We would certainly stay there again if in the area. The nearby Parksafe car park was very convenient

Stayed here with my mrs on a Saturday night break. The hotel is right in the centre of Lancaster and very easy to find - especially if you use the park safe car park across the road (£12 per night). The staff were very welcoming, showing us to the room. We had a room on the fourth floor, if you... More

What a lovely hotel! We stayed at the hotel this weekend (June 2015) as a treat from some colleagues, and were greeted with a warm welcome from a lovely chap who made us feel like old friends. Saturday evening was spent in the bar, enjoying the great offering of real ales, before venturing into Lancaster (the beer ruined us for... More

My partner and I stayed here for one night in May as I had a conference to attend in the city. We wanted to stay somewhere a little more personal that a big chain hotel and after a bit of searching we chose this place. From the moment we walked through the door they could not have done better.
