Chose this hotel as a stop over on our journey further south. We were greeted and taken to our room (32). We were warned that this was a mini double so we didn't expect a lot of room.....I have stayed in a lot smaller rooms without a warning! There was everything we needed in this very clean well appointed attic... More

Great service and value for money. Remember there is no on site parking but excellent nearby. There is no lift. Excellent menu and worth a return visit. Had a luxury room and again good value for money. Good atmosphere in the bar and well supported by locals

We stayed in the attic room which was absolutely beautiful (unless you're 6 foot tall) and well worth the stairs to get there. The bed was comfortable, the room was well appointed, & the bathroom was tiny but modern. The bar downstairs was great for a pint in the evening & the staff were friendly & efficient.

Lovely hotel with good rooms. Very clean and the staff were very attentive. Great breakfast. Enjoyed our stay. We were visiting morecambe and heysham and decided to stay in Lancaster. Great central location, easy access to trains. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed one night after dropping son off at uni. Lovely setting and quirky layout given that we had to up stairs down stairs up stairs to get to our room. Room was decorated really nice and the bathroom also. Shower really good and so were the little pots of gel etc. Coffee and tea making facilities plus the extra touch... More

My Boyfriend and I stayed for 2 nights in the lovely luxury room. We loved the fact that it was clean, and nicely decorated. The hotel is very central to the town. The staff is friendly and obliged us by checking train times for us when we needed it. There is also a great breakfast that you can order from... More

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
