We didn't stay or eat here but we worked our way through their extensive gin list. Wonderful place with helpful and very friendly staff. A must visit when in Kirkby Lonsdale. The next time we visit we must try the restaurant which looks equally good.

Stayed at the Sun in a few times now and it never fails to deliver a fabulous hotel experience. Mark and the team are so friendly and helpful, the rooms are great (even the standard rooms which we had this time) and the bar is simply a wonderful place to sit, relax and enjoy the atmosphere especially when the fire...

Thank you for such a lovely review, the bar is a perfect warm and cosy place to be with those fires going, and nice to take some time and absorb the atmosphere. The weather certainly is getting colder, so those fires will be roaring from now on! We look forward to seeing you again soon. Warm wishes Hannah

The hospitality and friendliness of the staff was unbounded, from the latest recruit on her second night to the manager Steve, all providing a service second to none. For a small inn, it provides the little luxuries that make life so much more pleasant. The free tea/coffee available all day, the bathroom 'smellies', the ear plugs in case you were...
