Always helpful, friendly and an all round amazing venue.
As a local florist, I love getting a wedding booking for the Sun Hotel. I've seen the venue from both sides, as I've been a bridesmaid here myself. The Hotel looks beautiful and it's ideally situated right beside Warkworth Castle. Everything always runs like clockwork and the team are super friendly and efficient. I rate them very highly indeed.

Exactly as I wanted
Zoe & Staff, just a little note to say a great big thanks to you all for making our special day so fantastic from start to finish. From the day of booking to the day after , everything was perfect and we can only thank you all for that. Zoe, I know I wasn't in touch a lot but everything was exactly as I wanted worth waiting 25 years for.

We had the most amazing day ever. Someone said to me yesterday that they bet I would like to do the day again and I said actually I wouldn't because it was perfect and trying to do it again would never be as good. You can't repeat perfection.

We celebrated our wedding on 26/08/17. Zoe and the team were absolutely brilliant from organising it to decorating the room. The food was delicious and the room we stayed in was fab. Everything was faultless and made our day so memorable. We can't thank you enough, we loved every minute of it.

The day we dreamed of
5* We would give it more if we could. Me and my husband can't thank Zoe and her team enough for everything they did to make our day all we dreamed of and more. Zoe is the best at her job and she is a lovely person inside and out. Thanks again for the best day ever!
