The New Year package including 2 nights bed, breakfast, dinner and a 7 course New Year Celebration Dinner was excellent value. Champagne...

Having spent another Christmas at the Sun Bay Hotel just have to say how much we enjoyed it again. Meeting up with people who have stayed before was lovely. The service was still first class, food was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Already looking forward to next Christmas!!

Never commented on Tripadvisor before but then again I've never experienced such friendly service and attention to detail. Nothing has been too much trouble for the staff. The rooms may be a little beyond their best but they are clean and comfortable. This is great place to chill out and relax. Brought two dogs who were made to feel as...
