Settle in for the night

The Sun Hotel sits inside a charming 16th century coaching inn, with its interior decor seamlessly blending the old with the new. All 32 of its beautifully appointed rooms come with contemporary en-suites and lots of mod-cons to help make your stay feel that little bit more homely. Sip on your favourite cuppa thanks to your handy in-room tea and coffee-making facilities. There's also free Wi-Fi to keep you connected, plus a friendly reception team that's always on hand to help sort out any niggles.

You'll have a choice of plush double, twin or single rooms to slumber in after dark. Before you settle down though, why not pop down to the cosy residents' lounge for a relaxing nightcap? Getting to the Sun Hotel couldn't be easier too. You'll find on-site parking near the entrance, while Hitchin railway station is less than a mile away.

The Sun Hotel makes a wonderful base for exploring the market town of Hitchin. It’s particularly well-known for its music venues - including the award-winning Hitchin Folk Club - and has a lovely range of shopping and dining venues. Want to immerse yourself in some local history? Enjoy an excursion to Knebworth House: a handsome Tudor manor that was once the home of famed Victorian novelist, Sir Edward Bulwer Lytton. There’s also the option of picking fragrant blooms at Hitchin Lavender Fields or swotting up on your Roman history at nearby Welwyn Roman Baths.
