We were staying here as it was a family 50th birthday party in Bordon, about 10 miles away. The location did throw us a little bit, as although we knew it was a way out of Alton town centre, our mobile phone signal decided to take a holiday (mentioning no networks by name!) and I'd not printed out the details. Anyway, once we'd carried on down the road a little we found it (difficult to miss it!), parked up and checked in. The receptionist was friendly and efficient and told us what we needed to know about breakfast times etc.
Our room was down a rather warren-like succession of corridors, but we eventually got there; it was, admittedly, a rather compact room, but frankly, for the amount of time we were going to be there (just an overnight stay and we were going straight out) it was absolutely fine. It was very clean, obviously newly kitted-out; the bathroom, again, was very clean, new and modern.
There have been some comments about the noise travelling quite a lot in this hotel. We did hear some noise from our neighbours, and from the shower in the next door room, but it didn't disturb us at all once asleep. The bed was comfortable, as was the room temperature.
Breakfast the next morning was a bit manic; we were some of the last to arrive, but there was still plenty of food available (the breakfast bar is a sort of "help yourself" carvery-style). Not sure if the staff weren't expecting quite such a breakfast stampede, as the coffee and orange juice did keep running out, but they were definitely working hard to keep up!
The morning receptionist again was very chatty and pleasant when we checked out.
I would recommend the Angel to others on the basis of our visit as we were very pleased with the service we received and the quality of our stay.
