We stayed here on a Saturday in June as it was only a stones throw from the restaurant we had a reservation in. The hotel is very central and as well as an allocated space in the hotel car park there was on street parking directly outside. Essentially a pub with rooms. The standard of decor in the public rooms... More

We were part of a group of six couples visiting BSE for a National 3 league fixture with the local club. All managed to get rooms booked in the Bushell, all had comfortable accommodation, a good dinner on the first night, excellent choice of breakfast in the morning, and although the rooms had different rates, they totaled our overall expenditure...

We ate on the saturday evening the pub had a large table... More

Just popped in for a bite of tea before the theatre. Had a slider board, now I know what a slider is, I've decided I like them. Very tastey and good value at just under a tenner. Ideal for two people wanting a small meal or one if you're a bit of a guts. Was intrigued by the deep fired... More

If you're looking to stay in a pub type setting in Bury, this is the place to stay. Great rooms, great pub and friendly staff. Bob especially went above and beyond for us - always willing to help and nice to talk to. The food is great, especially the breakfast. I hope to be back soon, I consider this place... More

I was alone and was given a double bedroom which was very clean and comfortable, with a nice large walk in shower. The breakfast was of a high standard and at £60 for the night, this presented good... More

Stayed for one night on Saturday just gone in room six which is in the main building above the bar and overlooking the street but had no problem with noise. Some might think the room is a little small but we had no issues with this. Everything is in the room that you might need, iron, ironing board, hairdryer, tea/... More
