This is without a doubt the best B and B we have ever stayed in. Beautiful room, comfortable bed and all those little extras like a fridge in the room, which was a bonus. Terri is an amazing host and nothing is too much trouble, will definately be back.

We haven't stayed at a B'n'B in quite a while and our transition was made most comfortably courtesy of Terri's fine establishment. The accommodation is great, decent sized rooms, nice beds, warmth, plus an ensuite bathroom. I had a minor gripe with the size of the shower recess, but that was hardly enough to shift it from a 5 star... More

I stayed there for three nights with a work colleague and were made to feel very welcome. The rooms were clean and well stocked with all the usual things. It was good to have multi-way mains adapters for all our chargers etc and WIFI was free and at a good speed. Breakfast also was good, whether continental or the full... More

Let me start with the explanation why we have chosen to spend 8 days in Bury. This very nice small town is in the center of Suffolk and from there you can visit - using public means of transport - within less than an hour a lot of interesting places. We arrived at Heathrow and took the underground train (Picadilly... More

We stayed with Terri for about 3 weeks when we first arrived in Bury until we could move into a flat. The rooms are lovely and clean, and Terri was very welcoming and friendly. Because of other bookings she had we had to change rooms a couple of times which wasnt a problem. She went out of hr way to... More

I traveled to Bury St. Edmunds with my family last month, and we booked two rooms at The Hamilton House. We couldn't have been happier! The owner was wonderful and so welcoming. She even let us check in early which we were VERY thankful for after traveling overnight. The rooms were spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The location... More

Wonderful welcome with a pot of tea and home-made walnut cake when we were feeling so tired. Room was comfortable and warm. Breakfast fantastic, especially the delicious strawberries and blueberries. The owner Terry is a lovely person.

We have stayed here on several occasions.The location is excellent - close to the center of town and the bus station, and only about a mile from the railway station. Rooms are decently equipped and very clean, breakfasts are very good, prices are reasonable and the overall value is excellent. The owner Terry is very welcoming, friendly and helpful. There...

From the initial phone call to leaving Hamilton House the hostess went out of her way to help on what was supposed to be her day off! Very friendly welcome without being overbearing - I agree with the other reviews below. If you want a cheap and stress-free place to stay within short walking distance from Bury St Edmunds train...
