3rd visit to the Angel & Royal and again same experience. This really is a throw-back to the days of honest, professional British service at its very best. All of the staff without fail were pleasant and offered a return smile without hesitation. Our room was again spotless, with the split level design much appreciated, although be careful if the...

Stayed for a week on business and really enjoyed the Angel and Royal. Very friendly staff, good room size, clean, good quality breakfast and plenty of it. On previous visits to Grantham I'd stayed at a 'chain hotel' on the outskirts but staying at the Angel made my visit far more enjoyable as everything is so accessible. Absolutely no doubt... More

we stayed just one night. Friendly helpful service, excellent parking facility, really interesting building, lovely meal, large, comfortable room, and we were allowed a late check out at no extra cost. Worth staying just to be in such a historical building right in the centre of the town. Just one small gripe - it did get a bit warm overnight... More

This hotel is reputed to be the oldest surviving English Inn, and the main façade was built approximately 600 years ago. Before then it had been a hostel for the chivalrous Brotherhood of the Knights Templar for over 200 years! It also hosted royalty when Richard III held court there in the King’s Room in 14 80. I facilitated the... More

Stayed a night in the wonderful Angel and Royal hotel in Grantham. Check in was quick and easy, the four poster room was fab (but a walk from reception!). Staff friendly, room and communal areas clean and a lovely real fire in the lounge. Nice local real ale on tap. Slap bang in the middle of Grantham, so plenty of... More

We shared our second Christmas in 2014 with family at this lovely hotel. Again a superb Christmas with lovely company, staff, and food. We were able to take our lovely Maine Coon cat with us again, they remembered us and made us all welcome. She even had a Christmas stocking from Santa! Would highly recommend this hotel, with a family... More

I really enjoyed my brief visit to the Angel & Royal, and not just because they thoughtfully provide stocks in the yard outside - presumably to punish errant wait-staff or irritating guests. It's a wonderful, rambly old coaching inn that has been carefully modernised and I have to say that it was exceptionally comfortable. My little suite was gorgeous -... More

Had to attend family funeral locally, stayed 2 nights. Nice old hotel with friendly staff, warm ambience and good food, though service slow (didn't bother us). But mattresses in need of replacement and old sash windows rattled a lot, so did not sleep well, otherwise rating would be higher.

Service is good, although the General Manager seems to do all the work!! The Hotel is a visit every American should make simply because of the history. BUT be warned - no lifts make journey to the rooms hard work and don't expect 4 star - this is a 2 to 3 star hotel at best. Breakfast is typical of... More
