The food at the sun was fantastic,with a great selection on the menu
The bed was rock hard. Our backs were aching badly.
Loved the Sun Inn. Beautiful location. Room was quirky and clean. Would definitely recommend and go back. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
The room that is supposed to a superior room wasnt up to standards
Food was lovely :)
A good pub with very good food. Free parking was a big advantage
There is nothing that I didn't like. I've read a complaint that the beds were hard....well I like a firm bed and had an excellent nights sleep. This is a perfect B&B in the heart of the Lakes with the added advantage of doing excellent food. Thoroughly recommend it.
Travelled from Loughton in Essex...the manager is very hands on and makes you feel very welcome. The staff are great. Location excellent. The food is possibly the best pub food I've ever had. We've stayed twice now and are already planning our next trip.
Nice room, comfy bed, excellent staff. The food was exceptionally good. We had a fantastic visit. Will definitely return and would thoroughly recommend.
Only a tiny thing but lighting in the room was a little dim.
Quiet, central, friendly. Excellent accommodation in this lovely village. Convenient free car parking nearby.
Great pub in Hawkeshead - good beer, excellent food (both evening meal and breakfast) and very friendly service throughout our stay. They also registered our car to provide free parking in the town car park. Our room was quiet on the top floor. We loved this pub and hope to stay again soon.
what better after a day walking around the Lake District,than a warm friendly pub with good food, beer and helpful Staff. And a bonus of free parking during your stay.
Lack of wardrobe space,
Really friendly staff, excellent food
Restricted space in rooms. Very noisy plumbing.
Friendly staff. accommodated gluten free at meals. Comfortable beds.
though the bedroom was clean and tidy i exspected a higher level of decor for that price point
the evening meal
Main light had only 3 out of 8 bulbs working so room was dark, did ask but had no bulbs to replace them. sink in bathroom leaked. Window closure mechamism broken so window didnt close properly and was drafty. Not a £99 a night room in my opinion
Friendly, good entertainment. A lovely village
very easy to find and very central and couldn' have been better
Very waem welcome,freindly staff great accomodation and good food
Nothing at all, all good
Just had a really good stay
The room was very warm even with the heating off. Some noise from the pub below (although this was expected). Slightly frustrated at the pillows which were very lumpy and uncomfortable.
value was great - room had character and the free wifi was a bonus.
staff were very friendly and helpfull and food was very good as well
Would have liked more choice of cold food at breakfast. Lighting in room and bathroom poor.
Friendly atmosphere excellent food.
The bedroom was small but adequate with a lovely old four poster bed which was very comfortable. The room could have had better lighting but the ensuit was very nice and everything seemed very clean.
The Sun Inn is in the middle of a lovely village and has an old english feel about it. It felt cosy in the evinging with a log fire in the corner which was welcome on a November night. The staff where very pleasant and helpful and parking was not a problem with the public car park very near and no charge if staying at the Sun Inn
WIFI was weak in the bedroom.
Friendly, hospitable, helpful, clean, good food and drink.
Noisy toilet system
Service support and breakfast were excellent
There was a bit of a problem with dinner in the evening but the excellent customer service dealt with it very well.
Good location Great beer Great staff Fantastic breakfast Very good customer service
Friendly relaxed atmosphere, right in the centre of Hawkshead, good choice of food for evening dinner, and breakfast. Great staff and nice and clean....what more could you want.
