Stayed for three nights for a short break. Ideal quiet position for walking into Bury St Edmunds or for driving out of town avoiding town traffic. On site parking was useful. The room was clean and comfortable, staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent- lots of choice. Free wifi was good - available in all areas. Would stay...

We decided to stay at the Cannon based on trip advisor reviews rather than the usual chain hotels. The people at the Cannon were lovely and breakfast was great. Our room was small, which was ok for one night but the bathroom was not good at all. The extractor fan made a terrible noise but switched off on a timer...

Stayed in room 7 clean and tidy, my only complaint being as I am getting into old boy territory the mattress had seen better days, not good for a bad back zero support and...

Went for lunch mid-week. No problem getting a table although the place was reasonably busy. We had a sandwich which came in a homemade roll with a medium sized portion of chips. Good quality but felt it could have been marginally cheaper. Was not impressed by their own brews but there was a decent enough selection of beers and ales...

Pie was great, service was friendly from local young staff. Beer was a wee bit underwhelming/ samey and the place just seemed a bit lacking in character. Christmas party season was well under way so perhaps we didn't get the best impression.

lovely hotel for a weekend get away. Restaurant is excellent for an evening meal, and the location is perfect for exploring Bury. Breakfast options take some beating also. We will definitely be coming back soon.

The atmosphere in the Old Cannon was great, the staff showed us to our table and their attention to our needs was first class, a bottle of house wine was promptly brought and a carafe of iced water put on the table with all the necessary glasses, Our order was taken and the food arrived promptly, unfortunately the roasts were...

It was a mid week business trip and I wanted to be close to the town centre and close to the main roads, and not a big hotel chain. The Old Cannon offers all this and more. The rooms were adjacent to the pub, I could park outside (just) and the rooms were well appointed and clean. Full Sky TV...
