Fantastic find
We had a wonderful 3 nights stay at The Sun Inn. The room was spacious and had its own bathroom just at the bottom of the stairs. Although it was above a pub and in the street it was always very quiet. The breakfast was lovely and the staff were always friendly and helpful. We will definitely be returning
