Lovely location, but parking a bit of a problem as it is central with no adjacent parking but free voucher for all car parks.Friendly helpful staff. Food to die for. Thanks for a wonderful stay. Lovely walks, with very useful map to show you where and length.

Two night stay, and they made me, my partner and our barky dog very welcome. The chef and restaurant team are excellent and produced a fine tasting menu on the first night with interesting wine. The rooms are comfortable and clean.

Our stay at the Sun Inn in Kirkby Lonsdale was superb. The staff are extremely helpful and very friendly. They couldn't do enough for us. The hotel is spotless clean and the attention to detail is fantastic right down to the toiletries which are Bath House and just happen to be my favourite. We would definitely stay again and most...

My husband and I stayed here last week. The staff are very welcoming and chatty . The rooms are comfortable and clean and the facilities are good. Some minor decor imperfections obvious such as leaking shower ,chipped paintwork and very old furniture but didn't detract from the comfort. We ate dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. Dinner was amazing the...

Having lived only a few miles from Kirkby Lonsdale for nine years we could never justify an overnight stay in the town. We visited Kirkby quite often for shopping and the occasional meal, and the Sun Inn was one of the pubs in the town where we chose to eat. Since moving away from the area three years ago we...

We had one night at The Sun Inn on a Saturday and we were greeted really warmly and shown to a nice room - with excellent toiletries (that I spent a fortune on afterwards to take away). One man there (I am presuming the owner) was really smiley and friendly - though others working there seemed not quite as happy...
