“Worst Value For Money Hotel I have stayed in”
Reviewed April 15, 2006

Not the hotel's fault but if you stay on a Friday night you will be subject to the noise of "boy racers" using the surrounding roads to race around accompanied by sirens blaring police cars. Not much sleep as a result.

The restaurant did not meet up to expectations - ordered steak very rare and turned up well cooked after a considerable wait. In the restaurant in the morning the toast was stone cold and rubbery.

Charged £1.40 for a Times newspaper which cost £1.10 and did not get the supplements!

Room very dated and shabby and, a silly point I know, but the toilet paper was cheap and nasty stuff - not what I would have expected from a room costing £85 for the night.

Overall, very disappointed and will not be returning.

I have stayed here a few times recently. It is a very comfortable hotel with helpful staff.

The creaking floorboards in the bedrooms are a bit annoying but I guess for some folk this adds to the charm. The common areas are very nice and contemporary. The only drawback is service is sometimes slow at breakfast, and portions of haddock could be a bit more generous.

Our group regularly attend the Rugby League Challenge Cup Final, this year it was held in Cardiff. Accommodation in Cardiff was impossible to find, so we hit the internet. This was our first experience of Abergavenny and The Angel Hotel. The hotel staff were wonderful, dealing with our requests and questions in a friendly and cheerful manner. The rooms were clean and well appointed (I've stayed in far worse and paid more). The public areas (bar, lounge and foyer) were clean, comfortable and very welcoming. The restaurant was well appointed and presented, each table laid with fresh white linen, sparkling wine glasses and spotless cutlery. The food itself was excellent and the choice of wines sufficient and reasonably priced. All this was while refurbishment and redecoration was underway (even the decorators were pleasant).We enjoyed it so much we will be going back in May 2004. Congratulations to all at The Angel.
