The location is convenient and central in Lancaster, which is a pleasant and pretty little city. Our room was clean, comfortable and well maintained. There was some noise from outside late at night, but that is to be expected in a city centre on a Saturday night. The pub has a very cosy, traditional feel, with lots of exposed stone...

I stayed in The Sun Bar and Inn with my friend on the 5th April 2014. We had a few drinks in various bars in the centre of lancaster but found The Sun the most relaxing. It has a great selection of ales, wines and the food was lovely. We stayed in room 24 which we found a little warm...

Just spent a Saturday night and we liked it. The bar and beer is superb and brace yourself for breakfast. Its awesome. Location is brilliant although there is no car park. We used 'park safe' round the corner which is fine but costs £12 for 24 hours. The room we have was great. Big bed, nice bathroom, decent size TV...

Happy with the room - good bed, clean,lovely, attention to detail. Shower very slow though. Breakfast however - big dissapointment. Luke warm tea - helping yourself from a flask thermos. Coffee served in a similar way. My partner finished earlier and left - I was sitting at his table. Neither his nor my used plates were taken away - while...

An excellent, quirky hotel in Lancaster. It is very conveniently located. The room we stayed in was small but had everything we needed for a lovely break. The bed was extremely comfortable. The staff were very friendly, efficient and helpful. The breakfast was delicious, with plenty of choice and one member of staff even made a trip to the shop...

Really good little hotel. Rooms above the pub/restaurant are newly refurbished and while not huge are very comfortable. The breakfasts are good, freshly cooked and of Northerner proportions. We had an evening meal there which was the best of our stay. Well recommended.

Spent one night here and cannot fault a thing. Rooms were lovely, beer and food were very good and all staff were brilliant. Very good location for our theatre visit to Lancaster Castle. Real coffee in the rooms added bonus.
