Positive Reviews

A charming inn

Guests love experiencing the historic charm of this 14th-century inn. The exposed beams and other original features in the rooms provide an attractive backdrop and the pub area with its many craft ales is a delightful place to spend some time.

Excellent location

According to feedback, The Sun Inn's location is ideal. It's situated in Faversham's conservation area in the heart of the town. There are plenty of shops and restaurants to visit and popular attractions such as Faversham Market and Shepherd Neame Brewery are very close.

Excellent members of staff

The staff members offer a warm welcome and a high standard of service.

Negative Reviews

Varying standards of accommodation

It seems that the standard of accommodation varies from room to room. Not all the rooms are in the main building and one of the rooms is reported as being very small to the point that there is barely enough room to manoeuvre around the double bed. Temperature regulation also seems to be an issue with guests reporting that they found their rooms very cold and very hot.

Noisy at times

A few guests mention that they heard noise in their rooms at times. Live music acts play in the pub area on Friday nights and this was a source of disturbance for some so bear this in mind if you like peace and quiet.

Lacks an on-site car park

The Sun Inn does not have its own car park, which some guests found inconvenient. It seems that there is a short-stay car park behind the pub but it is necessary to purchase a new ticket early each morning in order to avoid a fine. A long-stay car park is a few streets away which avoids this problem but is in a less convenient location.
