The Sun Hotel is very clean, the bed was superbly comfortable and the breakfast was was good. The staff are helpful and friendly. If staying here though avoid the attic rooms, 31 and 32 I believe. There are lots of stairs and in room 32 there is some limited headroom. The facilities are excellent. One drawback, the drinks are overpriced... More

Very centrally located hotel with amazingly quiet rooms. The way to the rooms is like a maze of stairs. There is no elevator so light travel is preferred. The breakfast is OK but not much more - coffee is extremely weak. If you arrive late you have to call and wake someone up.

In fact, all the staff we we encountered were friendly yet professional, and available to answer any questions if needed. We had a Luxury Room,... More

Stop over on long north to south journey. Wonderful location in city centre. Safepark car parking metres away. Wonderful friendly bar. Beautiful clean and comfortable rooms. Fantastic breakfast. But above all the friendliest, most helpful, genuinely nice staff EVER.
