Cosy and characterful rooms

The hotel's atmospheric building dates back to 1705 and you'll still spot plenty of period features in its 15 elegant en-suite rooms. They've all been recently refurbished, so you can look forward to plenty of modern touches - from sumptuously soft beds and complimentary Wi-Fi to handy plug sockets in convenient locations to charge all your gadgets.

A collection of spacious family suites, lovely double rooms and cosy twins means there's a snoozing space to suit everyone at the Sun Inn. Visiting the area for work? Reserve one of the hotel's three meeting rooms and enjoy easy access to several nearby business parks. There are additional event spaces for hosting exciting celebrations too, whether that's a big birthday or a wedding reception. Not sure how to reach the Sun Inn? Langley Mill station is a 25-minute stroll away, while the M1 can be reached in less than 10 minutes by car.

As well as being a brilliant jumping-off point for trips into nearby Nottingham, Eastwood has plenty of attractions of its own. Learn about one of its most famous former residents at The DH Lawrence Birthplace Museum or the wonderfully preserved Breach House (the author's former home). If walking is more your bag, Shipley Country Park and Arboretum Park are lovely options. You're also on the doorstep of the Peak District National Park if you fancy discovering its many hiking trails and hidden heritage sites.

Tuck into tasty pub classics to round off the day

Why not head downstairs to the bar for a drink? Settle down in the same cosy space where, back in 1832, a group of railway moguls met to wine, dine and make plans to develop one of the country's largest railway networks. The Sun Inn restaurant also serves up scrumptious homemade food at great prices made from locally sourced, seasonal ingredients.

Book direct with us now and enjoy 20% off lunch and dinner at our hotel restaurant throughout your stay. T&Cs apply.

Please note we can only accept bookings for the same day until 9pm to ensure our teams have time to prepare for your arrival.
