“2nd visit - excellent again.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

Our second visit to the Angel & Royal and the same experience. Genuine hospitality extended by all staff from beginning to end. Our room this time was even better (214, staying on April 11th & 12th), with an unusual split level design - 5 steps leading from a living area to the bedroom and 1 step up to the bathroom area. Very spacious bathroom and spotlessly clean throughout, as was the entire hotel. Breakfast is cooked to order and extremely good quality. Again, the level of service is first class, with old-fashioned values the order of the day. So this review is in total contrast to the recent one by a ‘1st time reviewer’ on TripAdvisor, who has not really explained anything, although how good to see that the management have followed up his concerns. Giving a 1 star without providing any evidence is poor reporting and let’s hope the return visit will see an enhanced review.

Grantham is a nice enough place and the local pubs were very cheap (amazingly cheap in comparison to London prices). Additionally, there are excellent rail links to Nottingham, Doncaster & Leeds if you want to break up the weekend. If you do stay in Grantham, in my mind there is only one option – enjoy the history and hospitality of the Angel & Royal.

Everyone makes a mistake or two but not learning from it is not acceptable in business especially when your customers are affected, so with too much more let me just say that breakfast time and the Angel and Royal is not a good experience at all and make sure you ask for everything more than once they might get it!!

As a member of the local Round Table, we always have our meals at the Angel for the last 10 years. It never disappoints.

Great place for food, so much atmosphere and the food is top notch. I also have many clients who stop at the hotel overnight, and none have ever complained.

Therefore, when I wanted a meeting room, i thought i would try the Angel. Not disspointed. Hot coffee, Great food, nice room. Decent and fair prices. Nice people who care. Air Con if required.

You cant go wrong with the Angel and Royal

First impressions when we finally found the car park (no signs to say at back of the hotel on a one way system!) was a bit grubby, but inside impression changed instantly. Lovely building lots of history & clean & tidy. If you like modern decor this hotel is not for you, room was nice & clean plenty of room but so hot even in March that we found it difficult to sleep! Overall good stay, lovely restaurant, helpful friendly staff

We booked a short break at the Angel and Royal for our wedding anniversary courtesy of Tesco clubcard vouchers. Our first impressions of this old Coaching inn were very favourable. Check-in was quick and efficient. We stayed in Room 103 which was split into two areas, a small sitting room with sofa, TV and hospitality trolley and a slightly larger sleeping area with a feature bed and surprisingly another flat screen TV. These areas were separated by a corridor containing a good sized immaculate bathroom. Our bedroom was directly opposite the kitchen and we were concerned the noise from the extractor fans would disturb our sleep so we closed the room windows which made it very stuffy but at least eliminated the noise. The second night we remedied this by turning off the radiator and opening the window and the noise from the fans was minimal. The light carpet in our room was marked and we couldn't decide whether it was stained or just marked with footprints. The bed was very comfortable. Sadly we were disappointed with breakfast, the toast on the first morning was cold, the scrambled egg overcooked and the sausage tasteless. On our second evening we dined in the magnificent Kings Room restaurant and the service we received from the restaurant manageress was excellent and the meal absolutely delicious. On the whole we enjoyed our stay at the Angel and Royal but probably will not stay there again as we have seen all the attractions in the area which we set out to visit.

The hotel is clean and the staff friendly.

If you are not so mobile you will need to ask for a suitable room. There are no lifts and it's a bit of a walk and up stairs to the rooms.

Wifi in the rooms doesn't work - only in public areas and not great there.

Food is good and reasonable value.

Lots of history, nice bar and restaurant; good parking at rear. I stayed for a business meeting; the meeting room was great and the food superb. Hotel room a little too small for my liking; but clean and quiet. Very good location; and would return for business stay but not with the family.
