Don't Panic, there is good news at the end! We have stayed here twice before, both well before it was taken over by Marco Pierre White, and on both occasions it was fantastic. We had our honeymoon there and this trip was to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. There were several problems this time but all due to a lack... More

We came here for my birthday in 2012 and had such a fantastic time so came back for my fiancé birthday looking forward to the excellent service and food we had last time and the menu is now a single page and the hotel dirty. Unless they have a serious overhaul we certainly won't be back

Lavenham is delightful but we were very disappointed with our two-night stay at The Angel. Shower out of order on first night (one of those things and put right later), but both bedroom and bathroom could have been cleaner. Carpet on the staircase up to the bedrooms was frankly disgusting and not a great greeting for a new guest. Poor... More

Set in the historic market place of one of the country's most picturesque towns, when you sit outside this hotel, with a drink in your hand after a good meal on a warm Summer's evening you really do feel a connection with the past. We enjoyed the meal, I loved the Adnams ale that was on draught and we had... More

We visited here for Sunday lunch for the sole reason that we couldn’t get into the Swan. We envisaged that as it was owned by a world renowned chef, the food would be worth shouting about. Sadly, this was where our expectations started to slide down a slippery slope. We opted for Sunday lunch, this is a set menu of... More

This is a place which shows off our classic history, and great regarding the value for money its calm, homely, clean, the worn bits add to the true charm of this place we have visited many times and will continue to do so just like a boomerang I will keep coming back.

The room was good but I definitely think the place needs some money invested in it. The stairs and corridors are quite shabby but the dining room was pleasant. The staff were very friendly and efficient but unfortunately the menu was very disappointing - no choice of starter but majority of meals served with chips.

My wife and I stayed here for one night only which was one night too many! We had high expectations which were sadly not met in the slightest. The rooms were of the most basic and awful standard. I am sure MPW wouldn't stay here. He is however quite happy for other folk stay at this hovel and take their... More

Marco Pierre White lends his name to both the restaurant and the hotel: the restaurant is OK but unexciting; the hotel is really very poor and devalues his brand. The staff (who are largely young and inexperienced) are willing and enthusiastic, but the fabric of the hotel needs investment. We didn't get up until 9.00 on Saturday morning, by which... More

Awful awful experience. I have stayed in better camp sites. Disgusting dirty room, tiny wardrobe, two wire hangers. Dinner appalling, breakfast worse. Bar staff indifferent, asked for recommendation for red wine, told it was up to me to decide. Garden needs tidying up, it has the feel of a nasty park.
