Came here with my GF just last week, we stayed for one night and as soon as we arrived we were given a really nice greeting. We were escorted to our room which was a really good size. Attention to detail really makes the place special. Filtered water to drink, sweats in the room, filtered coffee rather than freeze-dried etc... More

Nice town, visit here quite frequently and back at the Sun. New room for me this time, room 27. Large double room with rustic looking bathroom. Fantastic beer downstairs, ate there last night and it was sublime. Will review later. Quiet night's sleep. Impressed just as much as last time.

I was tasked by my partner to find a nice hotel for a weekend in Lancaster in late Feburary. I found a good deal at the Sun Hotel via trip advisor. The bar itself is worth a mention. It was busy and interesting with excellent food and staff, but it really came into it's own when we came down for... More

My Wife an I stayed the night whilst visiting friends in the area and were very pleased with the standard of the room and with the friendliness of the staff. The breakfast in the morning is really good and is cooked to order. The rooms are large and the one we were in was very clean and tidy and nicely... More

A great place to stop for a bite and a drink if you're out shopping in Lancaster. Lovely beers from their own brewery and a good choice of wines, malt whiskeys etc. Food is really good and the cheeseboard a treat. It can get busy at times so occasionally you may have a short wait for your food but it's... More

We have stayed in several of the luxury/exec rooms & all have been nice decorated with a lovely huge comfy bed & modern bathroom. If you book online they give you a £5 voucher to spend at the well stocked bar. The staff are friendly & the breakfasts are exceptionally good. The hotel is central to most things in Lancaster...

We stayed for 3 nights in early February and had a highly enjoyable time. Room 13 overlooked the main street and was amply spacious - be warned however that this is a city centre pub and like every other city centre venue gets quite noisy outside late on a Saturday night. Really comfortable room with a spacious bathroom. Ideally located... More

our room was beautiful, the only thing I could down it on was the view from the window, as it was just a tiled roof but I understand not every room will have a good view, staff were very friendly, the breakfast was BEAUTIFUL I will be staying here again :)
