“superb breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2012

We had visited Faversham a few weeks earlier on our way back from Canterbury and we had a drink and meal at the Sun.We decided to return to explore Faversham further and we stayed at the Sun.We arrived at noon but our room was available immediately so we could dump our things and start exploring.There is no parking at the pub but there is a public car park opposite the rear entrance so parking was not a problem.Our room was well equiped although small.We did not eat dinner at the hotel but found a superb Indian restaurant nearby.The full English breakfast the next morning was superb and we really enjoyed sampling the local ales in the many pubs of Faversham!

Room Tip: we stayed in room 7 which is a little small but has everything you might need

Rooms are not all large as some reviews suggest, but all are of a good size and the whole building is well maintained. Staff are always friendly and helpful here and cannot fault the quality of the food. Excellent breakfast in particular. As you would expect in Faversham, cask ale is well kept and the wines are a fair price. Inn is in centre of town with a conveninet pay car park behind it. Stayed here twice now and will not hesitate to use it again for visits to this part of Kent.

Room Tip: Rooms in outer builidng, 7, 8 and 9, all appear to have electric space-saving wastepipe systems, whi...

The Sun Inn is a great place to stay if you want to sample Shepherd Neame beer and Kentish food. The dinner we had in the pub was excellent quality and really good value for money. The breakfast was equally good but the only thing that let it down was that they served instant coffee rather than cafetiere coffee.

The room was spacious and they were accommodating for our needs of a travel cot and young children are most welcome.

Another minor point is that parking is not ideal as the carpark closest charges between 8am and 6pm but in the grand scheme of things this was not such a big deal.

The pub / hotel combo works well with the beer and food downstairs excellent and the rooms upstairs also very good. We stayed in Room 2 above the pub which was a good size with a comfy bed and a fantastic shower. The service was also faultless and nothing seemed like too much trouble. An excellent base for the Shepheard Neame brewery tour which is five minutes walk away. The only thing which stopped me giving this hotel five stars was the noisy extract fan in the bathroom which did keep us awake after using the toilet during the night until it shut off again after around 15 minutes.

No idea why this superb pub/restaurant/hotel ranks 3 of 4 hotels in faversham. Sublime food (best ever tasted in pub) massive rooms with beams, comfy beds, and the nicest staff you could hope to meet. Avoid Judds Folly and stay here, you won't be disappointed

All I can do really with this review is echo all of the positives previously written about The Sun Inn. If you are looking for somewhere that offers good pub accommodation in a grat traditional pub setting then you really do not need to look any further. The Sun Inn is a pub full of character with comfortable rooms, helpful friendly staff and a great breakfast. Perhaps one thing that, in my humble opinion, would improve things a little is the overall cleanliness of our bathroom, it is just begining to get a little 'tired' in certain areas (i.e. dirty tiles around the bath, missing screw covers to taps and shower control). Not a major problem for me but I could imagine some reviewers really marking a good pub down because of it. Regardless, on the whole I would have no hesitation in recommending The Sun as a good place to stay for pretty much any occassion.

Room Tip: Pot luck with regard to rooms really. Personally I would favour the rooms above the actual pub itsel...

We recently stayed and the rom was clean and tidy. We stayed in room 7 which is situated in the old grain store. The bathroom has a macerator which not only makes a loud noise when you use the toilet but also the shower and sink. We also noticed that it made a noise when the bathroom in rooms 8 and 9 were used. Large car park behind pub where you pay even for Sunday. Centrally located.

Room Tip: Do not choose rooms 7,8,9 if you are a light sleeper
