What a difference a day makes! Yesterday we had the terrible disappointment of sitting in Harrods having afternoon tea, and today having made the same order at the Angel Hotel in Guildford, we were very pleased with our experience.
We ordered 2 cream teas, 2 prawn sandwich teas, 1 lamb sandwich, 3 pots of Earl Grey and a pot of coffee.
Service was professional with waiters and waitresses dressed accordingly. The environment is relaxed with low sofas and tables set in a very comfortable panelled lounge area. It is warm quiet and friendly.
- The toilets have one towel to dry your hands on – totally inappropriate
- There are two fires which are gas coal effect and neither was lit, despite it being the time of year when this should happen
- The bread for the sandwiches was the cheap sliced variety, although fresh and pleasant.
- Because we have eaten there before, we know that it is not consistent. You can get something one time and not the other.
We would definitely go back to the Angel Hotel as it offers a warm refuge that is reasonably priced in the centre of Guildford. The service is professional and courteous and the place is clean.
If you have been to the Angel Hotel then please let us know what you think.
