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

We booked this a few days before choosing to stop in Lancaster enroute to Glasgow. On reading the reviews we were even more pleased at our choice. The staff were very polite and helpful the room although small was perfect for our one night stay. We managed to park outside the hotel and had to feed the meter. The pub... More

A quality B&B with a good menu of food, great beer and a good atmosphere. Its location is great for visiting Lancaster. The only downer (no parking), SafePark is great and easy walking distance but pretty expensive for a long weekend. The staff at the Sun are really friendly and the rooms are large with en suites and a comfortable... More

We stayed at the Sun Inn Fri and Sat nights. Lovely small hotel, friendly staff, well kitted out rooms and a fab busy bar to have a last drink and some people watching! We had one of the smaller rooms and it was small but perfectly formed, with a lovely big comfy bed and a great shower. Breakfast was relaxed... More

Spent a night here with a couple of colleagues on business. Slightly strange layout in terms of the reception being adjacent to the bar and somewhat tucked around the corner. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Wifi throughout and the meal and breakfast that we had was good. All in all good value for money, nice food and friendly... More

My first proper visit to Lancaster in 30 years after misspending my student years there, so thought it may be a good idea to stay at the place that was my most regular watering hole back then. Admittedly, the old place has changed somewhat and I had to visualise where the pool table and dartboard would have been when it... More

The rooms are large and spacious with a lovely vintage decor and high ceilings. A good bar and nice outdoor area to drink and smoke. Breakfast was also very nice, with a large variety of options. It's also nice that there's a bit of history to the hotel. All the staff were very friendly and helpful so I couldn't really... More

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
