Our overall experience at the Sun Hotel was very disappointing!! We are never ones to complain or make a fuss, but when checking out there was no one on reception to speak with. We got locked out of the hotel for an hour and a half in the pouring rain because someone had locked the main door from the inside in the early hours of Sunday morning. The emergency contact couldn’t care less, nor did he try to apologise for all the inconvenience. He was at one point going to break in through our hotel room window!! This caused a huge concern for us. With all the commotion it woke up the people staying in the room next to us, who then very kindly came downstairs to unlock the main door. The shower facilities were terrible too. The drain was blocked with hair and gunk, and the water was freezing cold - but again, there was no one in reception to speak to. If we had paid a lower price in the region of around £50 for the night I’d expect a few problems. But when paying £95 for such a terrible stay, we feel a bit annoyed and cheated!! Especially due to the fact it was meant to be a treat for us, and a chance to get away from a very stressful situation we are currently going through.

At the center of Canterbury, easy access to bus station, shops and train station. Staff was accommodating. Cleanliness was alright. Toilet acess wad quite difficult.
