Staff excellent struggling against the odds,working hard and welcoming and cheery in the circumstances.Good choice of breakfast,disappointing dinner,although crab soup very good. Limited menu.no Wifi... More

What a let down. Starter of avocado still in skin with no means of scooping it out covered in supermarket rocket leaves. Ordered 2 steaks but we were into the starters before they discovered they had no fillet steak. Changed to sirloin steaks that were served over cooked with over cooked frozen fries. What a shambles only redeeming feature was... More

Bathroom was grubby and had a stale damp smell. Dinner menu looked great, alas three items were unavailable and my chicken dish was under cooked. The waiting staff were professional... More

Having just returned from a one night stay at The Angel I firstly have to congratulate the staff who were simply great. Both members of staff at the bar greeted us warmly with big smiles and my wife and I were then shown to our room by a female staff member who was incredibly professional. The room was very clean...

We do not need to add anymore to the recent reviews. A very disappointed visit. It was a real shame for the staff who we're trying their best, with apparent no backup. The town and countryside we'll worth a visit, but find an alternative hotel.

We came to stay on a two night deal at The Angel. After reading the reviews we arranged with the hotel to be booked into room 9 as we wanted a quite room and that seemed the best one. We arrived Saturday afternoon to be told room 9 was taken, not a good start!! We were shown to room 2... More

Beautiful setting in historic Lavenham, myself and my partner were looking forward to a plush relaxing weekend away. After a fairly brusque welcome we were shown to our room. The back stairs carpets were so stained black it was positively Victorian! Breakfasts were the saviour, main meals were ok, not what what I would expect of the Chef whose name... More

This historic hotel, set in a beautiful village centre, needs abundant TLC - for example, the dated carpets, particularly on the stair case, were black with decades of filth. We would definitely not stay here again.
