Fodor's Review

This nicely spruced-up former coaching inn in the heart of town has spacious, well-furnished rooms in modern and traditional styles. The Charles Dickens Room, where the author stayed when giving readings at the Athenaeum Hall nearby, is done in 19th-century English style (although the bed is small). The hotel is the scene of Sam Weller's meeting with Job Trotter in Dickens's The Pickwick Papers. Morning coffee and afternoon tea are served in the cozy lobby. The Eaterie restaurant, overlooking the abbey's main gate, serves good modern British cuisine. During Bury Festival in May, jazz events are held in the cellar Vaults restaurant.
