“Better than ever”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Returning to this historic hotel for a three-night visit after a gap of several years I was happy to find it even better than I remembered. Room and service were faultless and I felt there had been a definite ratcheting-up of quality in the restaurant. The two dinners I had there were quite excellent and exceptional value for money as well.

This hotel looks beautiful with Farrow and Ball type paint schemes, orchids and great designer style. We found our executive room lovely if a bit small with slightly irritating touches like no bedside tables, a fancy shower which took ages to drain but everything is new and stylish.
Where it scores really highly is the terrific food. Just delicious at dinner and breakfast. Super service and very reasonable. Book in advance as it is full of locals coming for dinner, drinks and afternoon tea.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review.

I am sorry to read you would have preferred the bedside tables instead of a headboard shelf. I have also made our maintenance team aware of the slow drain in the shower.

I am pleased to read you enjoyed your delicious dinner and breakfast. I will make sure your comments are passed onto our team regarding super service.

We hope to welcome you back again in the near future.

Kind regards,

We stayed here for 1 night whilst celebrating our anniversary and my husband's birthday and we were suitably impressed. We had a lovely room which was comfortable, quiet and extremely clean with an en-suite bathroom/shower which, although was somewhat dated was again extremely clean and had everything we wanted. We had booked a meal in the restaurant and have to say it was the best service and food we have had in some years. The staff were very attentive and helpful from arrival and breakfast was very good indeed. My husband said that the bacon, in particular, was the best he'd had and the black pudding was excellent. We will certainly go again.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 2nd floor which was probably why it was quiet as, if you were on the 1st floor...

Cocktails band supper in the Foxhunter bar area never disappoints. Visited Saturday evening late with my husband and daughter. The mojitos are the best I've ever tasted, and the service provided by efficient happy staff make this more pleasurable.
The food was delicious, and I recommend the scallops.
It's hard to beat in the area which is why we keep coming back!

We thought we would have a 2 night break in Abergavenny having driven through recently.The hotel is an absolute joy.Situated in the centre of the busy market town it is within easy walking distance of all local attractions.The staff were incredibly helpful,(offering us an umbrella when the rain started unexpectedly),and knowledgable.There was a wedding reception on the saturday night(which we were informed of before we booked)but we were given the assurance that we would not be disturbed as our room would be away from the celebrations.I had one of the best nights sleep of recent months thanks to a really comfortable bed and the location of the room.Both breakfast and evening meals were excellent(the house red and white wine offer superb value for money).Congratulations to managers and staff,we will definately return.

Just come back after a short break. Booked a one night stay bed and breakfast for a friends sons wedding evening party. At the Angel Hotel. We arrived and found the car park to the rear of the hotel easily and parked up. We went to reception where we were given a friendly welcome. Our accommodation was in The Mews which was a cute mews cottage at the back of the building.
It was a lovely sized room with a super kingsize bed,en suite facilities, crisp white bedding and muted decor, a quiet reflective space and being at the back very quiet. The function room where the wedding was held was a charming room, with its own bar attached ,a lovely venue for a wedding , the buffet a hog roast was absolutely smashing,service was attentive and courteous.
The rest of the hotel was lovely with charming quiet spaces for guests to relax. Breakfast was lovely with a wide choice from cereals,fresh fruit,pastries and full English breakfasts, and many more choices on the morning menu. Also breakfast 8 -10am and they also did a late breakfast which is great if you want a lie in.everything was lovely and clean.staff pleasant. Our only regret was we were not staying longer. I think we will return at sometime in the future

Room Tip: The mews at the back of the hotel is very quiet

My mother in law brought me here for lunch. I had the Vietnamese pulled pork burger and she had the crab starter. Really delicious food! We sat in the courtyard on a sunny day which was lovely. I had my 9 month old son with me and I can honestly say, they had the best changing facilities I've seen yet. Staff were also extremely friendly and helpful. Will come again!
