Nice greeting after an horrendous drive through floods, room very spacious and a very reasonable cost. Was a little on the cold side but putting double glazing would ruin this place. Food was very nice and reasonably priced for the quality, the only negative is I would have liked a proper open fire, but that's a small thing, would definetly... More

I decided not to give the Rising Sun a 'Terrible' rating because there were positives during our stay. However, these were sadly overshadowed by the negatives. Upon arriving at the hotel, there was no one at reception to greet us. After waiting for a short while, as I went to look for someone a member of staff finally greeted us,... More

Other room, double room 9 the bed moved every which way - up and down, side to side, the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in. There was a lack of attention... More

Stayed here for couple of nights. Food excellent. Location disappointing for us as required choice of pubs/eateries nearby. For walkers brilliant - many many walks in vicinity. Decor rather tired. Woodwork in need of decoration. Management and staff brilliant. Made our stay very welcome. Value for money V good - had room upgrade without asking. Lovely suite. Whoever stays will... More

Nice hotel for a wedding in a lovely location! Good food during the wedding breakfast although service was quite slow even though the wedding guests were rushed into the room to eat! Staff were very friendly. We stayed in a junior suite. Clean, pretty room with lovely views although I was expected something more grand being in a suite. Breakfast... More

We popped in for Sunday lunch after passing through castleton and we couldn't get parked. A great fine, quiet and lots of parking. The service and food was fantastic and worth every penny. Had leg of lamb with all trimmings and husband had fish and chips. Very high quality food
