Negative Reviews

Substandard breakfast.

Many guests were not impressed with the breakfast at this location. Guests describe it as basic at best and poor otherwise, and suggest that at times there were missing elements that should be standard, such as jams.


A number of guests note that the Dragonfly Hotel Bury St Edmunds is dated and looking a bit worn and tired. Significant renovations to the decor would likely go a long way in improving the experience in this regard.

A14 traffic noise.

While not a huge issue as reported by guests, nonetheless some may be a bit turned off by the traffic noise which can sometimes be noticed coming from the A14. Its proximity to the hotel thus acts both as a boon and a bit of a negative for anyone that is particularly sensitive to such vehicular noise.
