Stayed for business, would come back for holiday!
I was staying for work but would happily stay for a holiday, what an absolute gem! The room I had was fabulous with everything I needed, including big fluffy towels and spotlessly clean. Plenty of parking and a good wi-fi signal in the room just capped it off to be perfect. I enjoyed my evening meals, plenty of choice even though they are operating a limited menu at the moment. My one disappointment was the size of the pudding portion - very small (I had the posset). The steak pie on the next night was scrumptious and big enough that I didn't need a pudding!

This is a little gem located in a place where you just wouldn’t expect to discover such hospitality and quality, if I receive a response from Expedia regarding the booking issue which was nothing to do with the Sun I will certainly return.
