Angel Hotel 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, is done in 19th-century English style (the bed is small, however). 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, overlooking the abbey's main gate, has Modern British dishes and a decent wine bar. During Bury Festival in May, jazz events are held in the cellar Vaults restaurant.
