We popped in on a Sunday Lunch time, there were only 2 other tables being used, and stood at the bar for 8 minutes (yes I counted) at the bar waiting to be served.. it was like a ghost ship.

Terrible customer service....... We arrived at 1.55 and asked if we could have 4 carverys. To be told they finish at 2 but they would let us. fair enough we got up and went to get it but the chef made it very clear to us all that he was not happy at all. By huffing and puffing glaring at...

I had room 119 and for a solo traveller it is fine as no wardrobe or real hanging space so had case open on bed and only one chair on room. Lighting was adequate to work but desk tight against bed. Then again room was only £50 for Friday night. The carvery was good for £6.95 although it was strange...

Dear tellitasitiz Thank you for taking the time to share your review of your recent stay with us with the TripAdvisor community.

Location and staff are great apart from the managers attitude on the telephone the following morning. I didn't get any sleep as the ceiling in my bedroom poured in water over me at 1.30 am on my bed. The night porter said that there were no other rooms available so I left at 4 am to get away from the...

If you want to sleep before an early start at work then choose somewhere else! Kept awake most of the night by people above and beside snoring, breathing heavily. Felt like you were sharing a room! Room was basic for the price, bed not that comfortable. There are other places to stay in the area so I didn't go back....

Thank you for taking the time out to share your recent experience at The Angel with the TripAdvisor community. I am sorry that you feel your experience was less than positive regarding getting a good nights sleep and I just wondered if you had approached the reception staff to request a change of room?

Given the many good reviews online, I had assumed that this hotel would be of a reasonable standard but please do not be fooled, this is by NO means a four star hotel. The mattresses in the rooms are 90% spring - I constantly had metal digging into my back throughout the night. My boyfriend had back pain for at...

This is the first time we have been let down by Trip Advisor! We booked a night here after reading mostly complimentary reviews and what a mistake it was. It was booked as we were attending a wedding nearby and needed somewhere to get a good night sleep beforehand. The room was ok, although I noticed that there were some...

Although located on a main road it's not that noisy that you can't sit and enjoy a drink outside in the sunshine. Staff and customer service excellent and very helpful. The carvery was as expected. The breakfast had a wide choice of hot and cold options. My only negative comment is that the lodge rooms need some upgrading and soundproofing.

Don't get me wrong this is not a bad place to stay, but it is a bit pricey. So far out in the sticks that they have trouble getting taxis and give you loads of numbers to try - or is just that they cannot take the trouble to get taxis? All twin rooms are in the separate annex and...
