We stayed at the Angel hotel last week. It was the only hotel to have availability on the night we wanted, we now know why!
We checked in okay. The barmaid who took our money up front, asked us what time we wanted breakfast, we said between 0900-1000 hours?.
Our room overlooked the main street, which seemed to be the local race track for the youths of Helston racing their loud cars around the town until the early hours. Our room door did not shut properly. The shower in the room was filthy, no hot water and it came out a little faster than a drip. The plumbing was also questionable as everytime someone in the building flushed their toilet the rest of the rooms could hear it. The beds were uncomfortable and the room was badly in need of redecorating
After an uncomfortable night, we thought we would at least get a decent breakfast. How wrong we were. We arrived at 0950hours(breakfast until 10.00 according to the hotel staff from the previous day) and found the hotel locked down; the bar was locked and so was the reception, we could find no staff members to speak to, eventually a rather rude duty barmaid told us that as we did not come down on time, everything had been turned off and that she should have finished work at 0900hours. My wife asked if we could have a cup of tea, but even this request was refused. She then shut the door in our faces and stormed off. She did not even seem to want the room key returned.
In short, avoid this hotel like the plague.
