Crossword Genius

Reporter’s accommodation is delightful (5)


I believe the answer is:


'delightful' is the definition.
(both can mean pleasant or nice)

'reporter's accommodation' is the wordplay.
'reporter's' indicates a 'sounds like' (homophone) clue (report can mean to speak something aloud).
'accommodation' becomes 'suite' (as in a hotel suite).
'suite' sounds like 'SWEET'.

'is' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for sweet that I've seen before include "Dulcet - dessert" , "Candy item" , "Melodious, not bitter" , "Pud" , "winning" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
