A wonderful guest house with fantastic rooms, with bathroom and all amenities including fan and iron/ironing board. Almost in the centre of town, with only a short walk to the Abbey (about 15-20 minutes from the station). Recommended for overnight stay in the town, or for using it as a base for the wider area.

What a gorgeous guest house. Just a few rooms but a wonderful welcome asked nothing was too much, even early breakfast on Sunday. A beautiful room full of antiques but excellent comfort and a great bathroom with bath and nice powerful shower. Cooked breakfast was delicious. Parking is also available and free. Stay there!

We were staying in Bury St Edmunds as we were singing at the cathedral over the weekend. Mrs. Pott made us extremely welcome, and was happy to serve an excellent breakfast early so we could get over to the cathedral on time. Really enjoyable stay.

Fantastic place to stay. Very friendly, comfortable, clean and homely. Honesty bar available. Ideally located close to all amenities. Lovely owner and breakfast was delicious. We normally like to stay at hotels and have stayed at the Angel previously but will DEFINITELY be returning here.

Ounce house is just lovely, from a warm welcome as soon as you step through the door to the moment you leave. The owner is a wonderful lady and nothing is too much to ask. Although I didn't have breakfast, it looked delicious and the other patrons looked like they were thoroughly enjoying it. Smarties on my pillow was a... More

We arrived a lot later than planned (nearly 11pm) due to traffic on the way down, however Mrs Potts greeted us warmly and showed us to our room. It was a large, comfortable room and very quiet even though it was close to Northgate Street. We had everything we needed and had a good night. Sleep was a little disrupted... More

Warm welcome, excellent room with all the home comforts including an excellent breakfast. Easy parking and walking distance from the centre and old town (try the One Bull Public House for dinner). Great to see hotels like this surviving. Highly recommend it.

What a lovely home to visit. A warm welcome, a most beautiful, spacious bedroom overlooking the pretty garden and lovely people. We were there only for a night and wish we had set aside more time. The beautiful centre of Bury is a very easy walk from Ounce House and there are plenty of good restaurants to choose from for... More
