It is a lovely 15th century property (lovely to look at from the outside that is). No main entrance, just some back door. No way to drive near it, no parking nearby. No permanent reception only when you are lucky. Hard to get anything up those narrow stairs. I would only recommend it to young couples, not elderly people or...

We booked a room with a 4 poster bed for a Friday in July for a friend's wedding, and called ahead to double check we would be OK to check in at 12 noon instead of the 1pm time on our booking email. No problem I was told. Turns out it was a problem and a very big one. En...

We stayed at the Sun hotel on 31st July for a hen do (4 females). We shared the Marlow Room and when we got there, were greeted by a friendly girl. Then, it all went downhill. At 5pm, I went downstairs to ask for an iron and there was NOBODY in the hotel!! No other guests! Nobody at reception! I...

I have read the other reviews with interest. I was meant to be staying at a more expensive (branded) hotel around he corner, but as I had left it late I couldn't get in. In place I booked into the Sun Hotel on a Wednesday evening in late July and was far from disappointed. Whilst it was quiet, I found...

We booked this hotel as a last-minute treat for ourselves and my in-laws. The day before arriving, my mother-in-law was taken ill and couldn't possibly come. I phoned to inform the hotel, and spoke to someone so vague I don't think he understood what I said. He didn't even ask for my information. Upon arriving we discovered that the message...

We did not have a good experience at The Sun. Our room was crapped, dated and dirty. Filthy toilet, stains and dirt on childrens duvet and tea spillage left for us to mop up on top of fridge. We were there 10mins and then left and explained we could not stay in the room. We ended up staying at the...

Great location and great building, so what is wrong? Inside the furniture and decor is not in keeping with the style and age of the building. All thought-out the building, it's old, it's new it's the wrong period, shame as this place could be fantastic. The bathrooms are all very nice. It's quite expensive for what you get, but the...
