Details

The Sun Hotel is located in the heart of the historic Herefordshire market town of Hitchin near Letchworth and Stevenage.

The Sun Hotel is a traditional coaching inn and first recorded only in 1575, although it probably stood here 50 years earlier. However, it only rose to prominence in 1741, when a local family by the name of Kershaw set up a posting service between Hitchin and London - the Hitchin end of the line being the Sun Inn's yard. Coach travel brought with it the risk of robbery; but the highwaymen of the time did not always confine their activities to the highway. In 1772 three of them held up the Sun Hotel at gunpoint, robbing and binding the landlord, William Marshall, and his guests and, before making off with their plunder, scratching their initials and the date on the brickwork by the door.

Today the Sun Hotel is a favourite with locals, businessmen and leisure travellers alike. Hitchin has many lovely half-timbered buildings, a museum and an art gallery. Nearby attractions include the magnificent Knebworth House, Woburn Abbey, Dunstable Downs and Luton Hoo. 

There are 32 comfortable en suite bedrooms. All rooms have TV, telephone, hairdryer, iron/ironing board and tea/coffee making facilities. Free Wifi. There are two feature rooms including one with a four poster also available. Wireless internet is available throughout the hotel.
