Penny Street Bridge

If you're looking for some luxury, great food and fantastic rooms, then you'll find them all here at the Sun Inn.

I stayed in a deluxe room that was spacious, beautifully decorated and came equipped with a wonderful bathroom that just oozed lavishness.

In my opinion, this is one of the most perfect hotels in England and one that few compare with.
