About The Sun Inn

Built in the 17th century, The Sun Inn is a five-star hotel where guest service is a top priority and the facilities are extremely elegant.

Rooms have flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi access. They also include refreshments such as biscuits and bottled water. The bathrooms have spacious tubs and rainfall shower heads, plus upscale toiletries from a local provider.

On arrival, guests of The Sun Inn are given a parking pass to be used for the duration of their stay. Furthermore, the reception desk provides walking boots, rain boots and magazines for guests to borrow. This is a pet-friendly hotel.

The hotel’s AA rosette-rated restaurant serves lunch and dinner. A ‘nibbles’ menu is available most days in the late afternoon, while Sundays find the restaurant serving a special roast beef menu.

This property is about six miles from Ingleton Waterfalls and White Scare Caves. Additionally, the Westmorland Shopping Centre is accessible in under 30 minutes by car.

Positive Reviews

The Staff Go Out of Their Way to Help

Guests repeatedly mentioned how hotel employees went above and beyond when providing assistance. They said if there was any way possible for staff members to help, they would immediately do so with a very professional and understanding attitude.

The Rooms Are Immaculately Presented

Guests gave rave reviews about the lovely rooms here. When staying in one, you just might feel like royalty. Guests particularly liked the fragrant bath salts and creams in the bathrooms.

Dogs Are Welcomed Heartily

Although many properties say they welcome pets, this hotel really means that. Guests were pleasantly surprised when they brought their dogs and the canines were given bowls and towels to help them feel at home. Some guests said they felt like their dogs enjoyed their time there as much as any human.

Negative Reviews

You May Not Be Able to Park Close By

Some guests reported having to park in the public square upon arrival, which was a bit of a hassle in some cases because of the distance from the hotel. However, other guests decided to purchase parking passes with their rooms, which allowed them to have spaces that were closer to the property.

Frequent Church Bells Ring

Guests who were light sleepers were sometimes bothered by the sounds of church bells in the area that they said rang as frequently as every 15 minutes. However, this was usually just a minor quibble, especially since the hotel provides earplugs.

The Food is Expensive

Occasionally, guests commented that the food was overpriced. Although it was almost invariably tasty, guests felt for the prices they paid, the portions should have been larger.
