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

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
