“Fab Food. Excellent Service. Beautifully refurbished.”
Reviewed 12 February 2013

Returned today to The Angel Hotel at Abergavenny. The lunch was really excellent. Wonderful, reasonably priced Menu, excellent choices & when food arrived it lived up to our expectation. Gorgeous Cawl, Fab Cod Courjons, Crispy Chips & a really gorgeous Chocolate fondant pudding.Dining Room is lovely, light & open. Beautifully furbished. Toilets are excellent. Exceptionally clean, beautifully decorated & disposable hand Towels lovely. The staff of the Hotel provide an excellent service. Janet who is in charge of the Dining Room is really exceptional, a delightful lady who offers superb customer care together with a delightful Argentinian lady who looked after our table. All together The Angel Hotel at Abergavenny is a super venue for lunch and we intend to return. A firm favourite.

The website and branding for this hotel suggest it will be a good, contemporary take on the classic british inn. In some respects it does OK, with nice decor in the public areas, a warm fire to take the chill off, and a good selection of real ale. 

But as soon as you take the stairs up to the bed rooms you step back in time about 30 years. The carpets and decor are old fashioned, and my room felt in need of an update. Everything is clean and in working order, and you'll not find a better place to stay in this town. But overall the room was not what i expected from the other reviews or the angel website.

The bar / restaurant has a rather confused food offering. It is one where there are dozens of things to choose from and very little you fancy. I really wanted classic fish and chips, or a steak pie... incredibly neither are provided. I settled for cod goujons with chips and chilli dip... which was OK but no great shakes.

If you need a place to stay in Abergavenny this is your best but overall I was a little disappointed.

Whenever we return to South Walse we will always stay in the Angel! Facilities are excellent and the staff are extremely friendly. The Angel is not a hotel from a corporate chain - rather a friendly hotel which is full of chatracter

The food is also of the highest standard, whether it is a delucious indulgent evening meal, or the wonderful breakfasts!

Absolutely wonderful food, attentive staff and elegant surroundings - the perfect combination for a romantic meal. We will definitely go back here when in the area again, having spent a fabulous weekend in Wales.

2 nights, delightful, comfortable, Cosy but luxurious and hotel staff the best I have known anywhere. Located in the centre of town, the hotel is a hub for locals too and this gives the hotel quite an atmosphere. All in all perfect, a treasure and highly recommended.

I highly recommend Afternoon High Tea at the Angel Abergavenny for a special treat! I took my wife there for a birthday treat and it was a fantastic experience. You can tell that the savouries and patisseries were home made and the quality and quantity was exceptional. I now cannot wait to go back, and next time I hope to include an overnight stay, the hotel looked great.

We stayed at this lovely little hotel for my 50th Birthday. What a gem. All the staff we encountered were very pleasant and extremely helpful. The pub and the quality of its food were great. If the crab toasts are still on the menu, they are a must.
