Sundial is a family business built on personal attention and caring service.

Our response to this pandemic is dynamic; we will continuously review it, following government guidelines and industry best practise. However, what will not change is that we will continue to be the same can-do people who love to look after our guests, and we will maintain the spirit of hospitality whilst ensuring a safe and relaxed environment.
