I do not normally write many reviews online and in fact this is my first on Trip Advisor (although I have been using the great reviews on here for years). I stayed here this month (based on the consistent 4-5 star reviews seen on here) I enjoyed it so much I found myself looking to book another few nights back in this hotel, that is when I saw the negative review on the hotel below. Having enjoyed my stay so much where the staff did there absolute best to make my anniversary mini break for myself and wife the best in our 13 years married, I feel the least I can do is write a review from my personal experience whilst staying here (rather than what I would assume would be the personal attack below?).
We did not have lunch in the hotel as we wanted to experience other options locally especially as we wanted to be out and about exploring the beautiful castles and countryside nearby, the manager was even kind enough to make personal recommendations on local alternatives to eat at. We did however have breakfast and dinner on both days of our stay. The service was personal and friendly and food was delightful and very well priced, as a professional chef for a London based hotel I feel that this is the one area that I can review well. I also (being a little OCD) will not eat anywhere less than a 4 out of 5 on the governments health and hygiene food compliance scheme, the Angel received a 5 out of 5. This led to my only criticism of the hotel which was they should be advertising even more about this as not enough people are aware of the “scores on the door” system (http://www.scoresonthedoors.org.uk/business/angel-hotel-west-sussex-560167.html).
Our room was well maintained, very clean and was as expected (from the many other reviews on here) full of character, I am however unable to comment on the other rooms having only seen this one, but it was at the front of the hotel and although the high street was busy the noise was nicely muted inside. We will be returning for our anniversary again next year.
On return I will come back and write another response to inform of any changes.
