Was reasonably impressed with my stay at The Sun Hotel, good value, very traditional building with lots of character, a comfortable stay. I think the rooms decor could be tidied up and modernised a little bit but the hotel is a very good alternative to generic premier inns and traveledoge's etc located in right the centre of Hitchin

Stayed here on a trip to Stevenage as my usual was full. Single room was not massive and would struggle on a longer stay but was fine for one night. The hotel is a classic coaching inn and as such there isn't a square wall in sight. The room had its issues, nothing major but the place is full of...

The food was good and reasonably priced however I did not think much of the accommodation, I think grotty is the best word I could use to describe it. The room was in desperate need of refurbishment and the bathroom was cramped and maybe a little mouldy (I didn't want to look too closely)!

The breakfast it self was no better than very average.The dining room is very shabby indeed- varnish on the tables is generally damaged and marked and hadn't been cleaned properly.Chairs are stained and there is a general air of tiredness...

In spite of the hotel being part of a chain it feels more personal. Always helpful. Evening meals varied breakfast not up to the same standard. Decor a little dowdy and need updating, however it is host to one of the best run Folk Clubs in the country and recognised as such.

An old, characterful hotel with good food, refurbished rooms - mine was facing the street, so a little street noise but not bad. Room a comfortable size, very clean and bed good. Staff very helpful and efficient. Breakfast good value.

“Rooms at the back probably quieter. Due to age of building (sixteenth century in parts) its not too good if you are less able - no lift.”
