A lovely hotel with a traditional feel. We stayed in a double room and it was lovely, four-post bed and exceptionally clean. Just over the road from the town centre and a short walk from a number o local pubs which you must visit!

A lovely quirky old property - actually a combination of many old properties spread over several levels and across the (pedestrian) street - joined by a fully enclosed walkway. It is better than their website suggests; I had visions of a glorified pub with rooms, but it is significantly better, and it has an excellent restaurant. The staff are all... More

Lovely characterful hotel. We stayed for two nights Friday and Saturday during the science fair. Room wasn't great and looked really tired for £110 per night. Two bulbs needed replacing in lights above the bed, bathroom door wouldn't close, one of the convenient electrical sockets wouldn't work, the bed creaked terribly. Even turning over in the night you'd wake up... More

We wanted somewhere just to go and remember our dog Louie who ended his days today. It has been a while since I've been to the Angel and Royal and we have had some amazing experiences there like when they did a meal with a celebrity chef and they even won an award for the toilets. The greeting from Sam... More

Good car park, the hotel especially the rooms in the courtyard, need a serious upgrade, carpets dirty, cistern in bathroom needs repairing, the bed was very hard & room very warm.

Stayed for the weekend to attend a party locally. Very interesting and historic inn. All staff were pleasant and helpful. Only problem was the breakfast staff - mostly young people with one "older" woman. I asked a young lad for the tea to be changed, as the order delivered was wrong . . . 2 different members of staff asked... More

We visited the Angel and Royal for one night and we were pleasantly surprised. As my wife is disabled I asked for a suitable room and we were given room 107 with a walk-in shower room. This room wasn't within the main hotel section but a few yards along the mews. A couple of issues such as a bulb blown... More

Polite welcome at 2130 hrs on the Thursday evening. On my own, room top of hotel third floor. Nice & clean. Not that large but adequate for one. Really glad the windows were open as the room was very hot. The outside temperature wasn't that bad either! Good English breakfast. Awoken by bin men at 0630hrs in the courtyard area!... More
