“Lovely, well-kept hotel - highly recommended”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2013

I normally stop in more modern hotels, but was pleasantly surprised by the Angel and Royal.
It is immaculately kept, has some lovely quirks and a fantastic charm.
Great attention to detail with rooms which are beautifully and spotlessly presented.
Everything's been thought of for you from car parking at the back with a code to get out, wi-fi codes given out and a generous supply of coffee, tea biscuits etc in rooms.
Staff friendly and keen to help and the food was excellent.
Superb location right in the town centre as well.
Only a brief stay, but hugely impressed.

We stayed at this hotel using our Tesco hotel vouchers. Other hotel chains had told us that they had no rooms available once they discovered we were using our hotel vouchers but Best Western were brilliant! They went out of their way to find us somewhere to stay which ticked all our boxes and we were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was great, we had a wonderful suite which was fantastic and their car park offered secure parking which meant we had no worries about the car either. We had a lovely and relaxing weekend and would definitely recommend this hotel.

Nice old fashioned atmosphere (it is an ancient coaching inn), with very comfortable accommodation. Stayed overnight in a lovely large twin bedded room on second floor with teenage son and small dog. Room had a lovely high ceiling, with two windows and a good sized ensuite bathroom. everything clean and tidy. We arrived late due to Easter traffic but were instantly made to feel welcome and sat down to a very nice dinner in Bertie's Bistro (the main restaurant was shut as it was a Thursday night). Breakfast the next morning was equally good. Service for both meals was efficient, helpful and polite. Checkout was equally efficient. For its price bracket it is excellent and would definitely return again or look out for other hotels in this chain.

I stayed here for only one night. The lunch served in the bar was fantastic value for soup, sandwich and a few chips and the real fire crackling in the fire place added to the sense of history. This hotel is reportedly the oldest in Britain and you can sense it (in a good way). My room, 302, was clean and spacious with a generous size TV, super comfy bed and powerful shower. Lots of refreshments were available on the tray. I didn't eat there in the evening as its so well positioned in the centre of Grantham that I decided to stroll out and found a different eatery. Breakfast was well presented, a good size and served with a smile; what else could you want? The room rate was very competitive and excellent t value for money. Try it!

Historic hotel with huge rooms, I had a lovely suite of bedroom, sitting room and bathroom - all to myself. Apart from a few stains on the carpet the room was charming and comfortable.
Breakfast was excellent on my two night stay, I had a great neck of lamb casserole for one dinner but a disappointing 'local Lincolnshire sausages' on another.
The staff on reception and in the bar/dining room were friendly and helpful. Great secure car park to the rear of the hotel
I would certainly return to this hotel if I needed to visit the area again.

Took the dogs for a break on enight in Grantham. So sad to see so many empty shops. Hotel was a bir tired and carpets needed a hoover and clean. Room comfortable and warm. Went to the hotels Bistro for a drink and noticed that the windows on the outside hadnt been cleaned for a long time, and the shelf next to me called for me to write dust me, not seen a duster for a while! Breakfast was goof though nice sausages and bacon eggs cooked well. Nedds some tlc.

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay at the Angel & Royal Hotel, as parts of the hotel date back as far as 1203 the building is a little unorthodox, however we do find that our guests usually love its quaint nooks and crannies & roaring open fires as it is all part of its historic charm although it does result in dust appearing as if by magic daily. I am very surprised that in contrast to our former guests you have found our cleanliness to be at fault, as this is something we really pride ourselves on.
