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.

Simply NOT the best !

Hotel is 'quaint' and has character but in need of updating if you are unlucky enough to get the wrong bedroom. Unfortunately the Hotel staff are not the most helpful, especially if there are any problems. I would certainly NOT stay in this hotel again as there are many better hotels (value, character and service)in the town

I stayed at this hotel at the begining of September and what can I say. Superb, the staff are all really friendly, I didn't have to worry about anything and the meal in the Vaults restaurant was brilliant. Food and service. The setting is amazing.
