Location could not be better, central to the town and all the recommend thing to visit. Good size room, comfortable beds and very clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. We stayed for 5 nights and we ate mostly in the hotel as the food was so good and well presented.

Helpful, friendly and professional, the team at the hotel/ bar were a breath of fresh air after a stressful 6.5hr journey to Lancaster. A special mention must go to the worlds most helpful chef who left the hotel to give us directions!! Our original reservations about the possible noise due to staying above a bar were totally unwarranted too. The... More

Plus points: what wonderful staff work here, thank you for the really early check-in. The girls in the bar are worth their salt and the young girl at breakfast made me smile she was so cheerful( did you name the Sun hotel after her?) happiest person I have met in a long time who really enjoyed her job. Great location... More

Stayed in a small double. Room was nice enough if you just need somewhere to lay your head. However, our room (14) was facing church street and there was a nightclub playing music until 3am right by our window. We didn't get much sleep! Also the water system in our bathroom was incredibly loud whenever the water was being used!... More

Well !! Situated right next to the castle this is one of the finest property of Lancaster. Serving the best beer this place serves excellent soup and some mouthwatering dishes. The garden is excellent to site out and enjoy the weather. Try the blonde Lancaster beer.

This was just what we were looking for on our arrival in Lancaster for a couple of days relaxation. We sat outside in the sun and enjoyed a glass of wine with a deli board lunch. The arrangement is self service ordering at the bar.

So many hotels over pubs are noisy until late hours. This one isn't noisy -- it's convivial until 10, and then that's it. Room 15 is truly amazing -- with 12-foot ceilings, great bed, and claw-foot bathtub behind a half-wall in the room. Amy called it the "Princess Room." Yes, the hotel and that room are on a street, but... More

Centrally located. First visit was in 2010 and not much has changed I'm very glad to say. Real Ales at the bar are outstanding. I was there on a Friday night in a Student 'party' city. One would think the noise in the rooms might be a problem, well you can hear a bit but not much, they are surprisingly... More
