We had a lovely two night stay recently with our wee dog. We were all made to feel very welcome and there was a lovely welcome pack for our dog. The room was stunning as was the food and in a very central location. We can't wait for our next visit!

I have known the Sun for many years, since I used to drink in there as a sixth former, so I was well aware before this trip of its very convenient location on the main street in Kirkby Lonsdale. I had not been in the Sun for about a decade however, and was immediately impressed by the décor and 'feel'... More

We had been told how good the Sun Inn was, but it was actually better. The standard of accommodation, food and staff was tremendous. From the moment we arrived to the minute we left, everything was perfect. Even after we checked out, we were offered complimentary tea or coffee in the bar - nice touch that some of the leading...

Thank you ever so much for trying us for yourselves, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Tea & coffee on tap is one of those little things that I know I would lap up if I was to stay some where.. it is the little things that make the difference. We look forward to looking after you again.... More

We loved this Inn - the welcome, the decor, the food, the staff and the room. We shall return. (The only negative for us were the many dogs in the rooms, bar and restaurant. We understand the bar but strongly believe that dogs should not be allowed elsewhere no matter how well behaved. How about constructing heated kennels outside?).

Great place, good food, friendly folks. We had some trepidation about parking but it was fine and given the towns circumstances could not be better. Good walks from the inn did not used the car all weekend!

Me and my partner stayed here for our anniversary celebrations and it was amazing. The rooms were spacious, stylish and clean with AMAZING showers! Breakfast was fabulous - I had smoked salmon and scrambled eggs and my partner had a full cooked breakfast. Fresh, hot and cooked to perfection. Can't recommend the Sun Inn enough!!
