We've stayed in this hotel several times now whilst exploring the hills nearby and every time it's been fantastic. Some of the rooms are fairly small, but on our last two stays we've received a complimentary upgrade to a superior room with a bit more space which has been a pleasant surprise. The toiletries are luxurious (the White Company), the...

I attended a meeting held in a beautiful upstairs room where little tea lights changed the setting from a 'meeting room' to a lovely relaxed room. We have this meeting quarterly and I have to say the food last night was the best so far. It was so tasty, hot and beautifully presented. We had a choice of 5 starters,...

On arrival the first thing I noticed was the scaffolding at the front of the building, never a good start! But as I made my way inside the communal areas were all very pleasant, modern and light. I had to go and find someone at the bar to help me check in as there was no one around on reception;...

I recently stayed at the Angel for 2 nights on a business trip. It was interesting to compare with its sister hotel, the Abergavenny, at which I stayed some weeks ago. I much preferred the Angel. I liked its quirky character, its comfort and convenience. The staff were excellent, being friendly and attentive. But the high point for me was...

Visited a few times, different occasions. Met here a couple of times for drinks, normally busy and quietly bustling atmosphere but I don't really understand who it's aimed at. It isn't a lively pub full of youngsters or a quaint old pub with a few old folk propping up the bar yet it doesn't seem to sit in the middle....

This hotel is well located in Abergavenny. We stayed for 3 nights and the longer we were there the more at home we felt. The strengths of the hotel, for us, were the very comfortable areas downstairs for eating, or siting around, and the very friendly staff. Our rooms (which looked out over Lower Castle St) were rather noisy -...
