Just enjoyed a wonderful three night stay at The Sun Inn as a special treat for my wife's birthday.
Everything about our stay was absolutely impeccable. Our room was faultless and with small but thoughtful touches such as excellent homemade biscuits each day and fresh milk supplied in a small vacuum flask right through to the complementary colognes and moisturisers etc. I had elected for the dinner, bed and breakfast deal and we were both very impressed by our first evening meal in the hotel restaurant and are happy to say that the standard remained very high for the duration of our break. We can testify that the AA rosette that the chef and his staff have earned is certainly deserved and quite possibly they should have earned at least a two rosette rating.
Whilst certainly not that cheap, the well chosen wine list offered us a choice of some very good bottles of quality wines which we certainly savoured. In addition to the great wines we enjoyed I found the three real ales in the bar to be of exceptional quality, all sourced from regional breweries and very well kept indeed.
Finally a mention to all of the staff at the Sun Inn who all made our visit all the more pleasurable by their collective friendly demeanor and attentiveness, all without any trace of snootiness which can sometimes afflict other hotels. We would both highly recommend staying at The Sun Inn and certainly hope to return before too long.
