My wife and I ate here on Valentines evening. We found all the food very good. Everything was tasty and we weren't kept waiting long despite it being quite busy. The service was excellent and drinks selection great. Will return.

Great food and service. Wheelchair accessible. Vegetarian options and selection of real ales too. Reserve a table in advance. Book a table near the back as the pub part of the Hotel gets very busy and quite noisy.

Can't fault this place. We were staying while attending a funeral so booked late and got last room, a 'mini double'. Small but perfectly adequate. Bed fabulously comfortable, great shower. All necessary facilities. The staff were very friendly, location is good and central. Cooked breakfast was excellent. Full marks!

Stayed with mum and daughter for a female empowerment session. Mum had just received bad news. Had a wonderful time and cannot fault the staff. They made it for us. Incredibly friendly. Great atmosphere and wine! We preordered breakfast and the eggs Benedict was gorgeous. Will definitely go back again (and again and again hopefully).

A couple of weeks ago me and a friend visited the sun hotel as we were recommended too. The staff behind the bar were lovely and the food was very good. I have not stayed at the hotel but have heard very good things.

The breakfast and evening meal we had was excellent and the staff super friendly and helpful. Only downside was the slightly noisy group of revellers who decided to have fun outside our window all night!!
