Good points. Location is great, pretty much in the centre of Bury St Edmunds right opposite the lovely Abbey gardens and ruins. Outside of the hotel looks delightful. View from our room at front of hotel was over aforementioned gardens and ruins. Service was polite, pleasant and helpful. Both evening meal and breakfast were very good. The downstairs bar is...

Visiting a friend & resident of Bury yesterday , we were walking through the town , I mentioned food saying I wanted quality , something fairly light because of the weather and civilised surroundings - not fast food. He said there was ONE place , he walked me through the town from Abbey Street to The Angel . It was... More

Lovely quirky place, but blinking expensive.....didn't really check out the prices of cocktails, as you only pay at the end, which is a nice touch, but can catch you out as the cocktails are expensive ha ha !! worth a vist though as its a lovely place for a couple of drinks

It was an In & out trip to Bury, so not really took time to "discover" the Hotel. Reception staff i meet were very friendly & helpful. My room (008) was good with a big Bathroom and correctly furnished. No safe or mini-bar, but a coffee machine & modern TV.

A good time of the year to visit this ancient inn. Outside it's smothered with rich green creepers and groaning with the weight of magnificent hanging baskets. Inside, however, it's showing its age. It's old enough to have hosted Charles Dickens. The plumbing has been updated since, but the floorboards creak wearily. However, the service is sprightly enough and the... More

My friend treated me to lunch here on August 13th, my birthday! We had traveled to Bury St Edmunds on a coach trip and never having been here before we weren't sure where we were going to eat. However my friend's sister lives in Norfolk, and had been to the Angel before, so we went and looked at the menu... More

A four star hotel but has a need to be redecorated in parts. In our room, the bathroom had paint which was cracked and coming off walls in several places, there were marks on the walls which looked like they needed a good clean, the overall look was tired and shabby. The only reason we stayed here was the location.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This Georgian ivy clad 4 star boutique hotel and restaurant in Suffolk surprises with a twist of urban chic. Our Suffolk hotel is right in the heart of Bury St Edmunds town centre and everything is just a step from here. Explore winding, cobbled, shop filled streets and a plethora of ancient architecture on the doorstep. Once inside, The Angel Hotel is a curious contrast of comfy contemporary design with touches of exotic grandeur. Warm leather sofas vie for your company in the lounge, which is filled with curiosities, pop art, eccentric oddities and cool vintage furniture. It is a hotel of many different aspects all artfully blended together into an exciting package and the bedrooms are no exception. The Angel Eaterie has a great reputation and dining here is a culinary treat. Take the steps down into the decadently curious Wingspan Cocktail Bar & Lounge located in the 12th Century vaults under the Hotel. Wingspan is the perfect location to meet with friends, for pre-dinner drinks, or simply to relax after a long day. ... more   less
