    Room was cramped, dusty and bins had not been emptied from previous guest. Bedspread stained. Attic room, sloping roof not suitable for anyone over 5'6" and stairs difficult to negotiate with luggage. Breakfast adequate, mould in jam on breakfast table.

    We enjoyed our short stay at the sun inn. We would recommend it to couples wanting a relaxing walking break.

    There was no soap in the bathroom.

    Beautiful village with peaceful atmosphere, very laid back and relaxing. The inn was very centrally placed and each room modernised and unique, if small.

    Bar had been modernised an d did not quite have the atmosphere of a country pub.

    The room was beautifully decorated, bare stone walls and beamed ceiling. The sisters who run the hotel were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. Was a bit disappointed that we didn't see the resident ghosts, maybe next time! Will definitely visit again.

    The hotel has a terrific location in Hawkshead, Cumbria in the heart of the Lake District.

    The room was cramped and cold--no heat at all on a night when the temperature dropped into the 40's outside. We checked out early. One of the owners helped us find another room nearby.

    location, room, breakfast, service, friendliness - everything was really good

    The rooms were amazing, specially for an Inn. We had 2 rooms booked in our party, a deluxe and a standard and were both well laid out and the interiors were beautiful.

    No atmosphere in the pub downstairs. Most of the staff were polite but we found one of the staff members with not the best people skills.

    The proprietor, Di, Emma and Becky, were all very friendly and accomodating, as was Simon who helped run the bar. The "Inn" was set in a lovely quiet location with everything to hand, shops, chemist, small supermarket etc... The Sun Inn was very clean, the food was fabulous, we enjoyed our full english breakfast each morning and chose to dine there on the evenings too, would definately stay again.

    beautiful room and the young man who looked after us was very friendly and helpful

    bar area is a bit clinical - not too welcoming

  • Older travelers

    We arrived to a very warm welcome by one of the lady owners. Our room was lovely, nice four poster bed and very comfy. The room was quite small but had everything we needed and was modern but still had an old world feel to it. As we were the only ones staying that particular night they were very flexible with the breakfast time which was great. The breakfast the next morning was very good, in fact one of the best we have ever had - plenty of it too. For the rate paid we thought it was excellent value for money and we would definitely recommend the Sun Inn to anyone looking to stay in Hawkshead. The staff were so friendly and welcoming too. Couldnt fault it really and we would stay there again if in Hawkshead.

    We found the prices of drinks in the pubs in Hawkshead to be expensive. We had spent 2 nights in Grasmere and found it quite reasonable there.

    Location fantastic, room decor lovely, modern spotless bathroom, huge comfy bed, breakfasts were good, although not overly fussy. also booked the four poster room for in-laws which was just lovely, bags of charm, lovely double shower.

    Views from room, room freezing due to bare walls and chimney, but character of room made up for this and the staff did put a heater in the room straight away.
