The Old White Lion
This is the cheapest B & B in the area and we have been told that it is comfortable and the food is good. It is not star rated. Please note it is a basic pub with a busy and noisy bar so until closing time I should imagine it would be 'lively'.
Castle Guest House
3 Star hotel with pool and gym etc. is located just of the Bury exit of the M66 and 5 mins drive for the Mind & Body Centre About a 20 minute walk and the best local hotel for facilities etc but they do have wedding parties on during the weekend and we have been told they can get quite disruptive sometimes.
3 star Premier Inn - Town Centre location 3 mins walk from the Mind & Body Centre.and less to the metro station brand new hotel with air conditioning, on site restaurant and within walking distance of a great choice of eating places.
The hotel is conveniently located near to J3 of M66, next door to The Paper Mill public house and restaurant. Other attractions in the immediate area are Megabowl, McDonald's, Pizza Hut, Asda Superstore and Fankie & Benny's restaurant. This is an out of town complex of eating places and Supermarkets so you would need a car. They have some good price deals.
The Travelodge is 2.5m from the picturesque market town centre of Bury, which is famous for its open-air market, which is open on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and features local produce and traditional cuisine.

There are many roads along there where you will be able to park for free.
