Outdated Facilities.

However luxuriously adorned, some visitors have found themselves at odds with malfunctioning or dated facilities. Noisy faucets, inoperable televisions, and uneven ceilings are a few grievances reported by previous guests of The Sun Hotel and Tea Rooms. Additionally, Wi-Fi connection and speed have been reported poor.

Cramped Sleeping Arrangements.

While the bedrooms are well-kept and held to a stately standard of decor, some guests have expressed their discontent with the cramped room sizes. Reports indicate cabinets inconveniently placed, resulting in limited mobility. Wardrobe space is also quite scarce in most rooms.

Cleanliness Is To Be Desired.

One’s overall experience at The Sun Hotel rarely fails to impress, however, the hotel’s standard of cleanliness may not suit the preferences of all guests. Smudged bathroom counter tops, frayed carpets, and nicked desks are among the minor cleanliness issues. Some guests have also reported finding object left behind from previous residents.
