I have known the Angel hotel for many,many years, having been born in Bury St. Edmunds and in my teens and early 20s worked at the Angel Hotel. It is steeped in history and is said that Charles Dickens stayed there when it was a coaching in. There is( or was in my day) a stained glass window depicting Mr Pickwick. There are rooms named after Dickens, Louse XV and a vault/cellar/grillroom. Many famous stars have stayed there when they have been visiting the Theatre which is a beautiful theatre to go, own by Greene King brewery. This hotel has seen a lot of changes over the years but has always been run by local families. First the Gooding Family and then the Gough family. It overlooks the wonderful Abbey gardens, The Athenaeum,, the Cathedral and the Norman Tower.In the 60's stars, including Vincent Price, Ian Ogilvy stayed there whilst making the film "Witchfinder General" . This hotel is certainly worth a visit. and is central for all your sightseeing.As it is a listed building things like double glazing etc. are items over which they have no control.
