It's the attention to detail that makes this place so special. The staff are so friendly and thoughtful and nothing is ever too much trouble. Room was spotless, temperature easily controlled and the beds were very comfortable.

I have stayed here several times over the last month and chose it over a bigger chain hotel as I wanted something a little different, and this listed building fit that profile. This is a small family run establishment with 12 rooms and you wont have lots of staff running around the place all the time, there is a bell...

My friend and I met at Bury St Edmunds as it is halfway between where we live. How pleased were we that we booked into The Chantry! It's a spotlessly clean, fabulous and charming little hotel with everything you need for a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. Our twin room was perfect, lovely white linen, very quiet and did I...

I'm so pleased to find this gorgeously restored Georgian hotel right in the heart of Bury-St-Edmunds. I'm already dreaming up reasons why I need to come back and stay in this hotel again! My room was extremely comfortable and to top it off there was a stunning 4-poster bed, see pic. But best of all they serve a fab veggie...

Situated in the centre of town with its own large car park, The Chantry Hotel is perfectly situated to enjoy the delights of this lovely town. This is more an upmarket guest house rather than a hotel per se. Maybe in modern parlance it would be described as a boutique hotel. But whatever you call it you won't be disappointed....

My wife and I usually stay at The Angel Hotel when visiting a friend who lives near Bury St Edmunds but, as there were no half board special offers there this time, we decided to look for an alternative that is centrally located. The Chantry has a small car park of its own located between the two old buildings that...

I enjoyed my experience at the Chantry immensely! The room was generous, wonderfully furnished and equipped, very comfortable and clean. The bathroom, however, was even more outstanding - not only spotless, but also quite huge and fitted with separate shower + a claw foot tub! I certainly enjoyed that :) Also, I appreciated the fact that although I was there...

This is a small bed and breakfast hotel with a cosy bar close to the Cathedral. The rooms are comfortable and the staff are friendly. This is the 4th time I have stayed here with friends and I have already booked another stay. This place is a gem.
