“Christmas market overnight stay”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

The Bushel is in an ideal position as it is only a few minutes walk to the market place, shops and Abbey. Room was very comfortable and the bathroom spotless, never been in a such a big shower. as big. Staff were really helpful and friendly, it was a nice touch to have mince pies in the room. There are plenty of alternatives you can have as a cooked breakfast.

We went to the Bury St Edmunds christmas market which was excellant. And we wanted a centrally located hotel and to be fair the Bushel fitted the bill perfectly,all the shops and stalls were within a five minute walk. The hotel or more accurately a pub with rooms was ok our room, number 7, was small with little draw space but it was clean and the bathroom and shower in particular was good. My big disappointment was the service i accept it was the xmas market and a town centre pub and so very busy but none of the staff made much effort to be friendly, we were residents for 2 nights, there for breakfast in the morning and evening meal on the Friday night, drinks on Friday and Saturday but nobody acknowledged that, no conversation, they did their job ok but no more. And when we came to leave on the Sunday we waited 10 minutes for someone to come and finished up going into the kitchen area to ask for help .
Shame really a little more affort and it would have been very good at the Bushel.

Room Tip: Room 7 was nice but its over the bar and very near the main road so can be noisy

Came with 4 male friends on a week day night, the atmosphere was great, nice and welcoming however the team were a bit sower faced but the food was great.... Come on team a smile goes a long way!!!!!! Really nice decoration, nice toilets smelling fresh which is a change for a branded chain pub well done as people do judge by the cleanliness of the toilets 100% for me

Always worth visiting the Bushell for great atmosphere, great food and great service. We go on Saturdays for drinks and food with friends. Our relatives have stayed here and loved it. The staff are brilliant and the british food platter is excellent quality and great value.

Stayed at The Bushel a couple of months ago for a work colleagues leaving dinner. Although this was held at a different location in Bury we were impressed with our overnight stay at The Bushel, so much so that we booked a room for the Friday night over the weekend of the Bury Christmas Market.
Although there was plenty of food on offer at the market we decided to save ourselves for the evening when we had a table booked for dinner at The Bushel. We were not disappointed with a good selection on the menu. There is a good selection of beer and the staff are a credit to The Bushel as nothing was too much trouble.
The room was clean and very well appointed and to top off the stay a fantastic breakfast sent us on our way home on Saturday morning.

Very friendly staff, room was relaxing and comfortable. Very good decor throughout. Breakfast choice and quality very good. Hotel very well located with easy / free parking. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Had room 7 at the front. Very quiet, smallish but very comfortable.
