We stayed at the Sun Inn for two days (Fri & Sat) while competing in a charity swim of Lake Coniston. On arrival our rooms were ready and check in was painless. We were given a permit to park on the local pay and display (2 mins walk away).
The rooms are all very individual and we all enjoyed the quirkiness of the rooms being at different levels and all different in decoration. The furnishings to the room are amazing and not your run of the mill hotel bedding.
On looking at the evening menu we thought it was a little bit steep, but having eaten i would have no qualms in paying the price again. The food was good quality and plentiful.
Myself, sister and partner had to be up at 5.30am on the Saturday morning due to the swim, and the hotel left cereal, bread to toast and condiments so we could get a bit of something to eat before our 5.25 mile swim of Coniston.
The staff were friendly and very accommodating while we were trying to find a table for eleven people to eat an evening meal and had set a breakfast table to accommodate us all.
I would certainly return to this pub, which is set in a beautiful village.
