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.

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.

Our second visit to this charming town and hotel. Once again my wife and I were delighted with the hotel. The staff were attentive without being intrusive.

Having been to Bury dozens of times before I have never stayed at the Chantry and am now kicking myself for missing out on this gem.
