I lived in Lancaster for nearly 5 years and the Sun became my favourite pub in the city (That I never worked for myself!). It's quite pricey, but definitely worth it given the quality of service, atmosphere and sheer quality/variety of beers available. It is full of rare, hard to find beers and spirits that are great to work your... More

The hotel was very accommodating as we are a family of 5. We enjoyed a comfy night's sleep and a great breakfast. The rooms are very clean and smart decor. The staff were professional and attentive. We would definitely stay here again.

Back to the Sun again, for our third visit in as many years. Staff helpful & friendly as usual. Good location in the middle of Lancaster, within very easy walking distance of secure parking. Good selection of beers & ciders in the bar. Maybe a bit harsh, but I'm deducting one star as they have stopped making their own baked... More

All though the room is lovely the facilities provided within in it were not worth the price we paid. Our room was facing out on to a busy a road which was noisy which contributed to my lack of sleep along with the room being very stuffy and the pillows hard. Breakfast the next day was a huge disappointment the... More

We stayed here for 5 nights as there was a conference at the local University. The room we stayed in was well laid out, a large King sized bed, with a good sized ensuite and hanging space. The problem was there was no air circulation, the windows did not open and the room became hot and stuffy by the morning... More

I used to visit this pub as a youngster many years ago. Its been transformed by the owners into a quality B&B with a lovely menu of food, great beer and a good atmosphere. Its location is great for visiting Lancaster. the only downer (no parking) but if you know the area you can manage to park fairly close by... More

The staff were great and very helpful, the 3 rooms my wife and I stayed in were very well decorated and comfortable. Breakfast's and dinners... More

The Sun Hotel was always a place we liked to go on a Friday after work to unwind. With an extensive range of drinks to suit all tastes and a relaxed environment to do it in made it an easy choice. So now when we go back to see family and friends The Sun Hotel is always our first choice... More

We have just returned from a two night stay at the Sun Inn, where we enjoyed a comfortable room, great food (especially the locally sourced breakfast) and good service from staff who were always friendly and willing to help. Our stay was made all the better by little "extras" including ground coffee and a cafetierre in the room and chocolates... More
