We usually stay in another B&B in Bury, but for this trip needed to be in the town centre so chose this hotel. The location was excellent, right in the town centre, and there was parking at the hotel (something missing at our usual place).
The staff were extremely helpful - when we told them we were having a late night so would probably miss breakfast, they offered to bring it to our room at 9.30am! And I'm not talking toast and croissants - this is the only B&B I've stayed in which brought a full English hot, delicious breakfast to your room!
The room (14) was very small, however, barely room to walk around the two twin beds, but very clean. The communal areas were dated, but the room was newer although the old fashioned bedspreads let it down. We found the room quiet throughout the night.
We were delighted to see a newly refurbished bathroom, however, were disappointed to find extremely low water pressure, I could barely get the soap out of my hair with the dribble coming out of the shower.
Then when we went to the main bar area to check out, there was an intimidating group of men sitting outside drinking (at 10.30am) who we had to pass, and who made us feel very uncomfortable, but this could have been a one-off.
All in all, we would definitely stay here again, the location and parking are what makes it worthwhile, as well as the amazingly helpful staff.
