The Angel tries to be all things to all, and succeeds brilliantly. Locals use it as a lunch and dinner venue and an evening tavern. So food availability is flexible (see website) and the quality is good. As well as a bar menu, there is an Italian restaurant, which also does takeaway pizza. Good selection of beers including Adnams. The... More

Having made many trips to Suffolk this was our first stay at the Angel Hotel, three nights 30th April to 3rd May and we were not disappointed at all. Our room although having no front facing windows was lovely & cosy, very clean and quiet, even though we were not far from the bar & restaurant area! All of the... More

Stayed in this hotel for a wedding in the village. We had a twin room with en suite bathroom, the bathroom was lovely. We had requested that the room did not need to be changed/ cleaned as we wanted to use the room to get ready. So my one complaint would be why paint the windows of the rooms outside... More

My friend and I stayed here at the weekend as it was convenient for a wedding we were attending in the area. From the moment we arrived the staff were friendly and helpful, taking us straight to our room, which was spacious and comfortable with a large en-suite bathroom. We had booked a table at the in-house Italian restaurant. The... More

My husband and I and my 88 yr old mother spent two nights here last weekend (a Friday and a Sunday, as they were fully booked for the Saturday) and enjoyed our stay; the beds were comfortable; staff friendly and the breakfast superb, the components of which are sourced locally. We had dinner on each night in the Italian restaurant... More

Reasonably priced and family friendly restaurant a short drive from Southwold. Extensive menu in the Italian restaurant and lots of choice in the more general bar menu. Friendly staff , good food and lots of choice for children. Nice to see children offered child sized portions of adult food as well rather than just a 'children's menu'. Best place we... More

Hello Fiona and thanks for your kind words. Very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit and can now spread the word far and wide. I fear that a lot of people can miss out on places like ourselves by heading, blinkered to the coast. There is a lovely hinterland to the Heritage Suffolk Coast area which deserve greater... More

This was my third visit to The Angel. Although the room my wife and I had on the last visit was rather tired, this time we had a newly refurbished room which was superb. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon to be greeted by the sounds of a jazz band playing in the bar. This is a regular event. We... More

Friendly staff, good food (dinner and breakfast), nice rooms, good wi-fi, easy parking. Just right. I'd go back. Easy access to Minsmere, Southwold etc. A pretty, quiet, country hotel in a quiet, pretty, country town.

I stayed at the angel as a two night business stay. The room was a little tired around the edges but clean and comfortable. Service and the food was good and very tasty and well made, however from a business traveller standpoint the hotel was slightly let down by a lack of wifi access in our room, as the range... More

Hello and thanks for your complimentary review. I am pleased you enjoyed your recent stay and appreciate your kind words. Expectation is such a difficult thing to predict.
