Good base for attending a wedding
Good bed, nice to see large shower rather than a tiny cubicle. No problems with noise, though I went to bed quite late (midnight ish) if you were in bed at 10pm it may have been a bit different as the Sun is in the town centre. 10 mins walk from the station, so easy access, but hilly with large bags.

Overnight in Lancaster.
Overnight in Lancaster at The Sun Hotel. Very friendly and extremely helpful staff on reception: booked in no problems. No car parking at the hotel, but a secure car park on China Street, 5 minutes away. Stayed in room 24- very cosy! - and up several flights of stairs. Having said that, it was spotlessly clean and had the luxury of a cafetiere and ground coffee (no decaf) As this room is on the front of the building it was also very noisy. We ate in the restaurant and weren't disappointed. Burgers are huge and tasty, but the Cumberland sausage special was highly peppered. Soft bed and not brilliant pillows, again scrupulously clean. The bathroom has obviously been refurbed to a good standard but we were both at a loss as to how to get a constant supply of water, whether it be hot or cold! Instructions for use needed. Not very helpful at reception when I commented on it this morning. Apparently, I should have rung down to ask for help. Really??! Maybe they need to put a phone in the bathroom then!
