I stayed in this wonderful hotel about 27 years ago. I loved it then and we loved it even more this time. Wonderful location, excellent rooms, and you also get a full breakfast cooked to order. The whole staff is friendly and the hotel is located a short distance from the downtown area. We loved the Green King Dog and Partridge pub just around the corner. Totally in a safe location, central to everything.

We checked into the Chantry Hotel for two nights recently. We were tempted by the reviews already on Trip Advisor and we were really glad we did. Lovely room, very clean and well decorated and maintained (not easy in the Tudor annex). Breakfast was all that we could ask for and all the staff contributed to a lovely few days in Bury St Edmunds.

On route to Norfolk this was a stop off in Bury St Edmund's. 14 room hotel right in the centre of the town.
Arrived early parked free expecting just to leave bags in reception. Shown to our room in the annex. Now normally I get the jitters when the annex is mentioned. Up the steep staircase to our room which faced the street, Furnishings bright and a huge comfy bed and even managed a sofa as well.
The town was grand and after a few sherberts retired to a good nights sleep. Breakfast was just the ticket catering for all tastes and appetites

We stayed at The Chantry Hotel last week and we couldn't have found a better place to stay. The hotel is an attractive Georgian property, beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly and helpful and gave us a warm welcome so we felt at home straight away. The room was extremely comfortable, well furnished and well stocked with lovely fluffy towels, toiletries and tea and coffee making facilities. The beautiful historic town was within easy walking distance and we were able to visit many places of interest, leaving our car in the hotel's own walled car park which is situated directly behind the hotel. The Abbey Gardens, Cathedral, Theatre Royal and the Greene King Brewery Museum tours are all within a short walking distance.

Breakfast was delicious, a good assortment of cereals, fruit, yoghurts were on offer as well as a good choice of lovely cooked breakfasts. There is a comfortable lounge area downstairs with a bar and outside seating area at the rear of the property.

Thank you for such a wonderful stay - this lovely hotel is very highly recommended !!

A great location in the centre of the town with very useful parking facilities. A very pleasant hotel with good decor, good breakfast. All round reasonably priced for service. We would recommend it to others

We have just had a very good experience staying at The Chantry. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the building spotlessly clean and well decorated. We had a simple standard twin room but it had all the things you need to make your stay comfortable and was clean and well appointed.
Breakfast was excellent; varied and well cooked. There was ample free parking at the back of the hotel which was a bonus.(One of the reasons we chose this hotel).
There was always hot water for a shower and tea and coffee facilities were always topped up daily.
One point for reference and is not meant as a criticism is that in this wonderful fine weather we are having it would have been nice to have a sheet on the bed rather than just the duvet so I could stay covered and cool.
The hotel is only a few minutes walking distance from the Cathedral and the town of Bury St Edmund which is a wonderful town to visit.
I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel and would gladly recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter

Just an overnight stay as visiting RAF Mildenhall but the room was beautiful.
Lovely big bed and immaculate bathroom really made it a lovely stay. Breakfast was great - good choice of cold buffet and a fully cooked breakfast if you wanted. Literally a 5 minute stroll into the centre and a good choice of Bars and Restaurants. All of the Hotel staff were great and would recommend this hotel highly.
