“Very nice!”

We had booked this for an overnight stay in July with relatives! It was very friendly and comfortable! I especially enjoyed the wine and cheese spread they offered! Quiet and just what we were looking for that night!

Room Tip: Higher floors off the main level from the porch area, room tended to be very bright all night due...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

The Angel of the Sea is located across the street from a nice section of beach. Downtown Cape May is about an easy 20 - 25 minute walk. The hotel Is decorated in a Victorian/Angel theme, which might be a bit much for some.

Our room was quiet and comfortable. Maybe a little small. It came with a queen bed and an ocean view, for which we paid extra. Because the window opened on a porch where people walked or sat, our choice was view or privacy. We chose privacy.

There is WI-fi service and TV's in the guestrooms. As others have noted in their reviews, the TV in our room was small. This wasn't a problem for us.

Morning coffee was available in the lobby at 7:00 AM. If you want tea or decaf, you need to find someone, ask, and then wait. Breakfast consisted of a choice between an egg dish and waffles, pancakes, or French toast. All were good, but nothing special. Afternoon tea at 4:00 offered a nice selection of excellent cake, cookies, and other pastries. Wine and cheese was at 5:30. I don't drink, so I can't comment on the wines. The other guests seem to enjoy them.

Room Tip: There are great ocean views and ample seating on the porches. Paying extra for a view of the ocean...

Overall we had a wonderful stay and the Inn exceeded our expectations. The breakfast was very good with a good assortment of choices. They provided beach chairs and beach umbrellas. The Inn is a half a block from the beach. They offer tea and pastries at 4 PM and wine and cheese at 5:30 PM. The Tea was wonderful but we never made it to the wine and cheese.

Room Tip: We had a deluxe queen and we loved it.

Not being familiar with the bed and breakfast type of hotel, I had low expectations. They were exceeded. We stayed just one night but availed ourselves of all the hotel had to offer. They have tea at 3:30 and wine and cheese at 5:30. Breakfast is from 8 - 10. Very friendly staff which were very helpful during our stay.

We stayed in angel suite 24 which is $350 a night during the high season. Not cheap but the experience was unique. Highly recommended for a romantic getaway. The Victorian theme runs throughout the entire hotel.

Great access to beach and they provide towels, bikes and beach chairs. They also have an outdoor shower which we used on our last day prior to driving home.

Appears to be many repeat visitors. All of the guests we spoke to had been at the inn many times.

Not sure I am a bed and breakfast fan as I tend to like the big resorts, however, I would recommend angel of the sea for a special weekend with your special someone.
