Negative Reviews


Issues in a Few Rooms.

Guests felt that a few rooms located above the kitchen extractors were noisy. There was constant noise of something or the other. Also, on musical nights, one can hear the voice of musician in the room, which is not liked by the guests who want to take rest. The rooms are a little compact and not very spacious, but this was not a major issue with guests.


Wi-Fi Connectivity May be an Issue.

The Wi-Fi network is not very good in the rooms. At times, the network is almost not there. Also, the connectivity is there only in bar area of the hotel.


Pub Needs a Revamp.

The pub of Sun Inn can be refurbished to suit the modern age travellers. The décor may be updated and a few items like carpets may be replaced.
