The central location makes this place ideal for visiting Faversham (and do take a 30 min stroll down to the dock-yard - it's very picturesque, with plenty of plaques on walls explaining the history).
Unfortunately, the local council's draconian attitude towards cars and parking makes staying at the Sun Inn less than convenient. There's no on-site parking (as the pub is on a pedestrianised road), and the nearest car-park is time-limited - with the local "penguins" up bright and early to slap tickets on any car without a fresh ticket before 8 AM (we know, as we saw them!). We ended up parking in a street 10 mins walk away, which could be an issue for some would-be guests.
There were also some temporary problems with the TV - namely, dreadful picture quality (which should be rectified soon with a new feed, according to a note from the management). The wi-fi is also weak to non-existent. While these are hardly disastrous issues, they'd be less irksome if the management made some kind of discount available until they are rectified.
The room was pretty good - ok beds, shower etc. The breakfast was also pretty good (the haddock and poached eggs is recommended), though some of the crockery was a bit grubby.
Overall, an ok place with friendly staff but with a few issues that may leave some guests a little disappointed. Would we stay again ? Probably not.
