The Chantry Hotel is conveniently located, a short walk from the centre of Bury St Edmunds. It has a reasonably sized car park for the size of the hotel. We arrived earlier than the scheduled check-in time, but our room was ready.
We had booked a deluxe double room, which was on the ground floor in the annexe (room 18). It was a good size, with a comfortable double bed, nice exposed brick fireplaces and a comfortable separate sitting area, with a very clean sofa, a chair and small tv (there was a larger tv in the main bedroom). The bathroom was small, with a good sized - although not particularly powerful - shower.
Breakfast was good, with very good poached eggs and local bacon & sausages.
The main part of the hotel has a little bar area, which we didn't use
There were a few small points which could be improved:
There was quite thick dust on the heated towel rail in the bathroom and on the light switches - although the rest of the room seemed very clean.
We were only given one set of towels so had to ask for more.
There was no shelf space at all in bathroom, although there was a small cabinet/cupboard.
A coffee table in the sitting area would be a good addition.
WiFi was free but didn't work with the code in the information booklet - we did mention this the next morning, so hopefully it will have been sorted out now. We could, of course, have reported it when we were trying to use it, but it was late-ish in the evening and we weren't desperate to get access.
The room prices in the information booklet in our room were outdated.
