Hotel information

Since the current owners bought The Sun Hotel in 2003, they have carefully rebuilt it.

The Sun Hotel is a listed building situated in the Lancaster Castle Conservation Area. As a result, it was impossible to add an elevator- the 2nd and 3rd floors are accessed by stairs.

Room information

There is a wide selection of rooms ranging from small budget rooms through to the luxury suite with 2 flat-screen TVs, stand alone bathtub and separate sitting area.

Area information

The hotel is situated in the very center of Lancaster, within yards of the castle and all the city's other attractions. It is within 300 feet of Parksafe parking lot which is staffed 24 hours a day. The hotel is conveniently located for getting to the train and bus station, both are within a 5 minute walk away. The Lake District is on Lancaster's doorstep and many people choose to utilize Lancaster as a stopping-off point en route to the Lakes.

Travel information

By Car
If travelling by car we recommend parking at Parksafe car park which is less than 300 feet from the hotel. Due to Lancaster's one-way system, we advise our guests to park at Parksafe (St George's Quay) first. The car park is clearly signed on the one-way system.

From the train station:
The train station is approximately 1,500 feet from the hotel and an easy 5-10 minute walk.

From the bus station:
The bus station is less than 900 feet away.

Important Information

Due to the architectural nature of the building, there is no elevator access to rooms. Staff are happy to help carry luggage.
