    Nice check-in however noisy pipework meant a restless nights sleep. No cooked breakfast offered so assumed buffet style only.

    Deserves more stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Great weather, even greater service. Room was really nice, and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is definitely worth more than the 3 stars it has. I would highly recommend the Sun.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Room was ok, but too warm: with windows open there was a lot of noise from the car park. Whole place is in need of decoration, particularly corridors with their 70s magnolia woodchip. Worst part was breakfast - not ready at 8.15. Had to wait 20 mins for order to be taken, the additional 20 mins to arrive.Ordered coffee and eventually a box of instant sachets arrived with two jugs of hot water. Brekfast room is not attractively positioned with a view of air conditioning and loading bays of nearby retail buildings. This hotel has great potential but for the moment it's massively disappointing.

    Christmas break, literally No room at the Inn !!

    Where to start ? 1. the unanswered phones, and "broken" answerphone. 2. the unattended reception area (was 11pm), took us 40 minutes to find someone who worked at the Hotel. 3. the booking, a double room for two nights, and only a single available. 4. When found, the temporary Duty Manager was incredibly helpful and managed to source another location for us to stay for these two nights. Thank you Joe. We have complained to Greene King who have informed us that there is a new General Manager who is addressing these issues. Hopefully the next time we visit the area this unpleasant experience can be overwritten with a better one.
