We spent Christmas at The Sun Hotel and it was brilliant. We stayed here the Christmas before and had a lovely experience so decided to book again for this year. We checked in on Christmas day and were shown by the lovely staff to out huge room. The decor was lovely with original features including a beautiful fireplace in the... More

Great pub Great beers and wines Excellent G and T's Occasionally we have food, always good Warm, comfy, plenty of tables to sit down at. Not sure that the TV screens are really needed, it's not really a sports bar In summer the seating area outside is great Ladies toilets, modern and clean

Room was comfortable and slept well - not many hotels I can say that about. Room at back and quiet. Layout of the rooms is a bit of a maze but findable. Well placed for overnight parking at "parksafe" but that adds £12 to overnight stay. Well placed for pedestrian access around shops. We had the festive dinner which in... More

Brother stayed here with his girlfriend over this past weekend. They had room 16 on the first floor right above the bar. We know the bar well as my wife and I have patronised it for best part of a decade. Its one of Lancaster's better pubs or bars, its a bit of both. Posh pub. The room was over... More

Stayed here whilst visiting family locally for celebrations. Hotel had decent reviews which made my decision easier. The bar/ restaurant areas are lovely. Staff are amongst the friendliness I have encountered anywhere. Amazing selection of whisky & ale. Breakfast is cooked with good local ingredients. The room for guests is a generally decent room with enough amenities for most hotels/... More

A group of friends stayed in the Sun Inn last weekend. It was our second visit. I was in a deluxe twin room which was lovely. Well appointed and the bed was really comfy. The only drawback was the noise from the courtyard below. I closed my window and soon fell asleep! Our pre ordered breakfast was lovely and obviously... More

Lovely accommodation, great cask ales, fabulous fresh cooked breakfast. Highly recommend! The staff are really friendly without being pushy and it is worth the money. Will definitely stay there again :-)

My stay was on business as part of a larger team, and we were spread all over the city and we couldn't all get into the same place. I don't think this hotel's website does it justice, as this was nicer than I expected it to be. Nice welcome, taken to rooms by one of the staff, very friendly. Room... More

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review. I think you're right about our website, the design is a few years old now and we're working on a brand new site to arrive in the next few weeks. Our hotel is nearly 400 years old, so there are one or two old oak beams knocking around, they do... More

We wanted to go for a standard double but had to go for a luxury room as the standard rooms were fully booked. I hoped we'd get good value for the extra money, and I wasn't disappointed. The good experience started at check in when we had a very friendly welcome and were shown to our room. It was much... More

Thanks for your review. I'm delighted you enjoyed your recent stay. When we converted this very old building into a modern hotel approximately seven years ago, we spent a lot of time and money making sure the bedrooms would be quiet. It's always a big plus when people notice how busy our bar can be and yet only a few... More
