“Outstanding Hospitality”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

We have just spent two wonderful nights at The Sun Inn.
A perfect location in such a pretty little town. The staff were so friendly and welcoming from the minute we walked through the door ?. We booked a standard room and though we had no view to speak of it was so very comfortable. The lovely Bath House products along with the cosy bath robes were a real treat, as was the fresh milk and home made biscuits to have with our tea.
We ate dinner in the restaurant the fist night which was delicious, first class. Really well presented with lots of flavours and so fresh. Great wine list with very knowledgable staff. Breakfasts were just as enjoyable too.
Also free tea and coffee throughout the day is a really nice touch.
I have no hesitation in recommending the Sun Inn as "The" place to stay in Kirkby Lonsdale.
Monty loved his little doggy treats too ........Thank you all for making our wedding anniversary a memorable one, we shall definitely be back.

Just spent 3 excellent nights here, eating in the restaurant/bar downstairs every evening. Bedroom was very stylish in a chic rustic way, very clean, good tv, massive comfy bed, big bath to soak in. Staff and owner exceptionally friendly & professional, genuinely welcoming to our dogs, who thankfully rose to the occasion and didn't disgrace us!

Lots of noise from Kings Arms opposite in the early evening but no worries, all silent by 10.30pm through to 9am.

Food uniformly excellent, breakfast sausages and kippers outstanding. Only suggestion for improvement would be to have more 'gastro pub' style dishes for walkers in the evening. Although the £29 (3 courses) main menu was beautiful and actually good value, it was 'fine dining' and perhaps a little too fussy and elegant after you've walked 15k. The other choice was bar snacks menu, which again had tasty food on it but snack size (avg. £5) not meal size,

KL town itself was great - picturesque with little shops and set in a fantastic landscape. Blessed with 3 hot sunny days we went swimming in the Lune just under Devils Bridge - so nice and clean and fun.

Forget Cornwall - we're going to head north for our mini-breaks now!

That is what we like to hear - head North.. life is better in the North!

We take your comments on board and have made some amends to our bar snack menu, it now includes fish & chips, which is something I would love after a 15k walk!

Thank you for this lovely review, we look forward to seeing you again.

Best wishes

Conveniently situated in the heart of Kirkby Lonsdale, The Sun is the ideal location for a few days (or longer) exploring the Lune Valley.
Every member of staff is well trained, courteous and efficient, and each could not do more to make your stay enjoyable.
The food is excellent and the wine list extensive. For those preferring beer, the bar offers some local real ales as well as lagers and cider.
Kirkby Lonsdale offers some beautiful walks and local shops selling varied produce.

So many tempting hotels to try in this town, but The Sun Inn keeps drawing me back, and never disappoints. Personal touches, and nothing seems too much trouble.
Love it so much I'm going back again tomorrow night!

We just stayed for one night en route to the Lake District and chose it because of fantastic tripadvisor reviews. It was every bit as good as we expected. The bedroom was delightful, comfortable and had been very successfully modernised. We weren't disturbed by the church bells and didn't need to use the ear-plugs provided. The evening meal and breakfast were outstandingly good and service was excellent. Steve was very efficient and also very welcoming, and has the gift of making everyone feel like a special guest. We would have liked to stay longer.
