"The hotel was in a good location but unfortunately the room was extremely small with a tiny en-suite. The rooms were not cleaned to a very high standard and the towels were not changed at all during a four night stay. I specifically requested a disabled or ground floor room but was given a room on the second floor that they stated could not be changed. The wheelchair would not fit into the room as there simply was not enough space around the beds. There was a lift but it could only take two people at a time and was not always working! The meals were poor and you had to order your evening meal at breakfast time. This was apparently according to the staff to avoid wastage but it is a ridiculous policy. For example my sons pizza was sent out extremely burnt and was not edible .I said it was fine, we could wait whilst they cooked another one but the waiter explained that they couldn't cook another one because they did not have one as it was not ordered on the morning. I we then said ok chicken nuggets or anything would do but the waiter explained that all he could get instead was vegetables .On another occasion I did not get a dessert because although I had ordered on the morning I was informed that they had " counted wrong" and did not have enough so I was just offered a coffee instead. I said I would have any dessert but apparently they had none spare of anything due to their morning counting system. I have never known anything like it. I would go back to Skegness but never to this "hotel". I have never experienced such poor standards of service ever before !"

"just got back from a national express holiday at the sun hotel.We had a really great time and met some very nice people.The rooms were very clean,warm and comfortable and the food was well cooked and very tasty.JAMIE the barman/bingo caller/waiter and porter was brilliant and could not have been more helpful,he was always smiling and nothing seemed too much trouble for him.We would definately recommend this hotel and we are hoping to go back in the summer."

"just returned from 5 day break with national holidays.this is one of the best hotels we have stayed in in this country. tina and mark are the best hosts and their hotel provides comfort and very good food and is in a great location. the bar area is very good well stocked and "normal" prices for drinks and entertainment as well.what more could you want.will most certainly be back."

"I was happy with my wholoe experiance of the Sun Hotel as when I arrived I was greated off the coach by a member of staff and we was asked to gather in the bar. We was then given a talk by the owner to inform us of all the fire exits and saftey precautions by doing this I felt well informed about the building and what to do in what case. The room was spotlessly clean and had all the essentials for a perfect holiday, the room was spacious and comfy. The meal were excellent it had lots of choice and the quality was great. You wont be hungry after a meal at the SUN! Thanks, I will be returning!!!!"

"Went for a 2 night stay here and we were really disappointed. The room was very small and gloomy,it would have suited a single bed rather than a double because there was hardly any room to move around.There were also too many "DO NOT" signs scattered around the place it didn't make you feel very welcome. The food was terrible,I have never tasted anything so bland and tastless in my life. It's a shame really because the hotel is in a good location."

Well worth it!!!
"I have recently got back from a holiday which my accommodation was at the Sun Hotel in skegness, I am very happy with the level of service that i recieved when visiting. I was welcommed in to the hotel by the owner (Tina), she then went through all the fire produrces and everything we needed to know to be safe during our stay. We then went upto our room to find our cases had aready been taken up to the room this was suprising as i have travelled with nation holidays for a long time now and this is the only hotel that has taken my cases. Dinner was served at 6:00pm, and it just got better and better, we had tons of choice on each course, so their was something to suit everybody. We was asked our breakfast menu at night so we didn't have to mess about sorting it in the morning because it was all ready for us, the also asked us our evening meal for the night time the next day, and this was good because then again our meal was ready for us when we went in the resturant. I carn't thanik this hotel enough for the kindness and genoursity they showed us while staying at this hotel."
