    Our stay at The Angel was wonderful. The rooms were excellent, providing every requirement that a guest would need. The staff were extremely helpful and courteous and the setting of Bury St Edmonds is fantastic.

    We were just using the hotel for an overnight stay, it was the price which attracted us and the look of the hotel on the website, didn't know it's history until later ! The car park is quite small but the efficiency of the reception staff in checking you in and the speediness of the car parking staff in making sure that your car was safely parked in the hotel's car park was quite amazing, everybody was very polite and helpful. Definately recommend it as a great place to stay, great position in the town.

    Service very good. Beds and bedding gorgeous and comfy. Lounge was very relaxing, lovely spacious sofas- ideal for pre dinner drinks. Breakfast brilliant- I can reccommend the pancakes with berries! Handy location- can walk into the town just around the corner & Abbey gardens just opposite.

    Very attentive staff, comfortable room if on the warm side. Well positioned in city. Food and service very good especially suffolk grill for breakfast.

    Dining room ambience not compatible with rest of hotel. Seating (bench) not comfortable for eating. Music a little too loud.

    Very good

    The warm, friendly atmosphere of the staff and surroundings. The hotel had a log fire in the lounge, and on Sunday morning people could relax in their groups and read the papers, chat and have a peaceful coffee or drink. We liked our room 103, it was modern, tastefully decorated and furnished, with very comfortable beds.

    The hot water supply in room 103 was poor. It seemed to go hot and then cold, and once a bath was run, the water was cold for a long time. So much so that there was no difference between the hot and cold water supply. If this is a 'demand' system, it takes too long for the hot water to come through. Problem was shared by our friends in room 4 downstairs.

    Very good

    Lovely location and room.Comfortable room and public areas with sofas.Reception staff helpful (got us fresh milk quickly for tea in room)as were car park staff.Breakfast food good.

    Welcome at breakfast was non-existent and so not sure where to sit /what to help ourselves to.Staff at breakfast regarded us as an inconvenience and did not go out of their way to welcome and help at all. They even did not work out that we had not received our breakfast 30 mins after ordering until we alerted them.(it had been forgotten)The food and venue was good so this was a shame as this spoilt an otherwise very good hotel experience.

    Very good

    Met outside hotel and offered help with baggage. Helpful staff. Central location. Interesting furniture/decor.

    Room had scaffolding outside one window. A lot of stepa and stairs. Step inside door of room should have been marked.Not able to use bar in evening.

    The professional service and location of this hotel ideally served our purpose. The staff were most attentive and extremely helpful. The handling of the car parking was excellent and is definitely a USP of this hotel.
