“Lovely Clean Friendly Hotel - near East Lancs Railway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Stayed here for one night whilst we had a meal on the East Lancs Railway Red Rose Diner... Both Helen and Russ were very friendly and helpful; the room was modern, warm and clean and the breakfast was excellent. There is a modern courtyard at the back with seating and decking for if the weather is warm and facilities to warm and eat your own food in the dining room. We will definitely stay here again.

I have just spent a week on business in Bury and was fortunate enough to choose Castle House B&B for my accommodation. I stay away regularly on business and always choose B&B over the large hotels.
PLEASE DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE PRICE as Helen and Russ run a fantastic business here. Breakfast is freshly prepared, the rooms are very comfortable and nothing is too much trouble for the hosts.
I was made to feel very welcome and enjoyed my week here.
The location may not look fantastic on Google maps but again do not be put off by that. It is a very quiet area at night and only a short distance form the town centre. They also have their own car park.
If you are eating out I can recommend The Jewel in the Crown (Indian restaurant) only half a mile away and the Shoulder of Mutton Pub in Holcombe (less than ten minute drive up the hills with stunning views). The best Steak and Ale pie I have eaten by a very long way.
Thanks Russ and Helen for your kind hospitality during my stay.
I am due to go back to the area in a couple of months time and will definitely stay here again

We had a one night stay at the Castle Guest House in early June . From the moment we arrived
and until we left the both Russ and Helen made us feel most welcome . The room allocated to us
had recently been refurbished , and had the added bonus of an en-suite . Our breakfast was cooked by Russ and would equal if not better any served at a top hotel . In Russ and Helen you
will find two warm and very friendly people who go the extra mile to make you feel at home .
Thank you Alan and Janet

We had a very pleasant 2 night stay here. Friendly, accommodating people. We arrived later than expected and this was no problem for them. We had everything we needed and a recently, excellently refurbished bedroom, with comfy bed and ensuite made this a great value place. There's a pretty court yard to the rear and private off road parking. Breakfast was good, couldn't fault it. It may not be in the prettiest part of Bury but its in short walking distance and its an easy journey on the tram to and from central Manchester.
We'll definately stay again when in the area and will happily pass on the details to friends.

I've stayed in a few guesthouses and hotels in the area as I have been working in the area. The Castle Guest House is easily the best of the reasonably priced guesthouses. You could stay in a town centre hotel but they are no better than this and are much more expensive. For the money you can't do better - it's well decorated with modern, well appointed rooms, a really nice private courtyard, smart dining area with great breakfast and very friendly and helpful staff. It's in a quiet area too and it has a private car park.
