Reviewed 19 October 2013

The hotel was pritty average nothing to great, room was very clean and nicely set however there was no shower and the pressure of the water to run a bath wasn't great. The staff were very friendly especially manager Mark. Where as waiting staff were very under trainned and not very good at dealing with requests. Food was terrible on the first night the soup was definetly a packet dried soup more like a cup a soup the other 3 night dinners were ok nothing to great. Overall it was an average experience and the hotel was very small.

I stayed at this hotel for one night with my mum, I was pictures online and wasn't expecting much from it. However when we arrived we were greeted by a lovely young man who check us in, very friendly and polite. We had a double room and was lovely. Looked very modern, clean, bed was so comfortable I didnt want to get out of it. Lovely big window overlooking the sea front, plenty of storage just a really lovely room. Friday evening there was a singer in the lounge who again was brilliant, not just singing but jokes and great entertainment, including bingo. There is a small bar which was great after a few drinks we went to bed. In the morning we were asked if we wanted cereal before the full English breakfast but went for the cooked breakfast only. A lovely pot of tea and orange juice, staff again were friendly, polite and just very nice. Lovely breakfast, lovely bedroom, great staff. I just want to say some reviews mention you have to pay for extra tea and coffee in your room this is correct, however there is plenty to start with and if you need extra 4 tea bags cost 10p. (People just trying to find fault) overall this is a great place to stay I have no bad comments to say. I will be booking here again in the new year. Thank you all so much.

Just had a 5 day break here and although booked thro' national holidays we self drove. We were met by Tina and Mark who were very welcoming. We had room 6 which had a nice sea view and the added bonus of a balcony, bathroom was small but adequate and we cold have done with a few extra drawers, but hey, it was comfortable.
The food throughout the week was exceptional, plentiful, and always hot, we had the traditional roast every night of lamb,chicken beef and pork,, and the lovely full english breakfast, and each one was as good as the first.
Only entertainment on 2 nights, (shame) so we went down to the Savoy which was just a few yards down the road, (they are open to non residents), I have to say that Rick Roberts in the Sun Hotel on the Thursday night was brilliant, a real all round entertainer !!
I heard a few whinging about their rooms but can't comment on that as most seemed happy. So overall it was a good break in a well located hotel, I should also mention Dean the Manager who was there to help out in any matters and was very pleasant.
So don't hesitate, get to Skeggie, enjoy the hotel, and the resort !!

Room Tip: Get a sea view room, as a few have balconies, we had room 6, which was fine.

just stayed here for the second time with National Holidays, small family hotel, right next to all amenities, food was very good except the custard(sorry Tina) service was brilliant and the hotel spotlessly clean, what more could you ask for, my only gripe is it would have been nice to see the owners a bit more but the staff they have were very helpful and friendly, especially Jamie who is a credit to this hotel and does many a job, will be returning next year and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Skegness.

Spent 7 days holiday at the SUN HOTEL on a Caledonian coach holiday The hotel has a splendid location on the sea front at the north promenade an easy 10 minute walk to the town centre

The rooms are clean and tidy and generally what you would expect on a coach holiday
The meals were excellent and varied with a choice to suit anybody with a 3 course meal being served at night along with tea or coffee.

There was entertainment on most nights with typical sixties music that had everybody dancing
The staff were all pleasant and efficient and all in all the holiday was great value for money
