Great Service. lovely breakfast that really does set you up for the day. The bed was a little springier than we are used too but comfortable and clean. Lovely hot shower

Barrie, gb1 night trip
Fair 4.0
Lets start with good bits - breakfast. Bar and dining room has the decor of a doctor's waiting room and the atmosphere of a morgue. That's too much of a problem as there are other places to eat and drink in Pooley Bridge. The main issue was the room (Twin room #9 and I suspect that 7 and 8 may have the same problem. They are located over the kitchen with the extract system attached the the wall, so it is noisy and you can hear the voices of the staff in the kitchen. Just what you want 7:30am when everything is turned on. There was also an issue with the hot water - it never got more that luke warm, often cold. Service is quirky, for example latest breakfast is at 9am and you are supposed to complete a detail order form the night before. The worst part though was that we mentioned the above and our issues were dismissed out of hand! I will be avoiding this Inn, as there are better in the village with much more modern approach and surroundings

Well worth considering.
We were only there for one nighty, but I enjoyed the experience. The place has character. I was impressed with the attention to detail, from the items provided in the room to the superior breakfast, which was freshly cooked and well presented. The garden area was also immaculate, with lovely flowers around the border. The bed was very comfortable. I liked the fact that it had it's own car park. Nice view from our room. I would be happy to stay at The Sun Inn again.
