As a restaurant, the food is excellent as one might expect as Marco Pierre's name is associated with it although by all accounts from staff, he rarely visits. Therefore the proud boast of “Marco Pierre White The Angel Hotel” is a little misleading in my view. However, we had dinner on one of our two nights stay and the quality, style and presentation of the food was very good indeed. The full English breakfast, which to my shame I had both mornings was about the best I've had anywhere. We stayed in the family room, which is in a separate building next to the hotel and the entrance to which is directly from the road. It is very small for a family room and in dire need of refurbishment. It was clean enough but that's about all that can be said. It had tired furniture and fittings and the bathroom was nothing special. We were woken at 06:30 on the second morning by a van that parked right next to the window of the room to deliver food to the hotel to a room (kitchen or store room), which is directly behind the family room. It sat there for half an hour with its hazard warning lights turning the room into some kind of sleazy disco as the lights flashed relentlessly through the gaps around the curtains, not to mention the constant clatter of unloading. Immediately next to the room, there is a short cut from to the main building for guests which is routed through an area of the hotel which is normally used by staff and is extremely dirty and frankly, smelly! If you arrived through this entrance you would probably leave immediately. I would definitely eat here again but unless some major changes were made to the hotel, I would not stay again.
