About the hotel

The Sun inn has a large garden and inviting playground, we'd like to feel we offer the ideal watering hole for parents with young children, doubly so because we're a stone's throw from Coate Water Country Park, much loved by walkers, boaters and fishermen alike. The Sun Inn is a real family favourite - especially in the summer. Parents can sit back and relax while the children run around on our large lawn, or entertain themselves on the slide and swings.

Our thatched summer house is also perfect when the sun's at its brightest and you'd prefer to sit in the shade. Although the new rooms we offer are seperate from the pub they still feel very much a part of it as they sit in our large garden. Built to a very high standard we offer a range of rooms to suit all types including doubles, large luxury with roll top bath and walk in shower, twin or adjoining rooms and 1 room that has wheel chair access and bathroom suited as well. Please be aware that the hotel is set in the large family garden of the pub and can be noisy until late at night on a hot day. Breakfast is included in the price and is served from 7-10. 30 am Monday - Friday amd 8am-10. 30am Saturday and Sunday Now as a guest at The Sun Inn you can use the gym and pool facilities at the Holiday Inn opposite

Sun Inn - Superior Room + Breakfast

The room was excellent, other than the shower tap handle came off.

The down side was the breakfast. One table had 3 Kilner jars half full of muesli, cornflakes and sugared cornflakes. Both the flake jars were manly full of “dust” due spoons being continually plunged into them. Only one jug of milk, so no choice and one jug of orange juiced, with a tray of ½ pint beer glasses. Finally of the table was a plate with some apples and oranges on. Breakfast was ordered, scrambled egg with smoked salmon but the salmon was a cooked piece of salmon, flaked and scattered over the top. It came with some toast but no butter. Also a full English was ordered with several items that had been cooked for a long period before serving, the egg was half raw and no toast, this had to be requested. No preserves or anything extra. Have had better.

First stay

Rooms in a separate annexed behind pub, although heard just a little noise from pub garden, but not at all disruptive.

Rooms were of a very good quality. Only negative was that the small windows had curtains only, nets were needed as people could pass by your room and look in. So I had to close the curtains and put indoor lights on. Breakfast was not memorable. Choice of 3 cereals, orange juice and fruit only. No loose sugar for cereal. I asked for sugar and got sugar lumps. Cooked breakfast of choice, I had scrambled eggs and they were dry. Coffee served in a mug and far, far too strong, despite asking for not a strong one.
