I've stayed in several hotels in Grantham over the last 10years while I attend the British Model Flying Championships at Barkston Heath. This year was the first at the Angel & Royal and it won't be the last. There was a bit of confusion at first due to a mistake in my email address but that was overcome.
The hotel is small, 36 rooms, but with a long history. As a result it is not cold and clinical as are many larger hotels. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, particularly Sylvia on reception. We had booked the breakfast option and found the selection to be very wide and the amounts very filling. A plus when you are going to spend all day on a windy airfield.
A major plus is that the hotel is very animal friendly, particularly dogs, which was why our friends and fellow residents switched to the Angel.
Another big plus is it's location in the centre of Grantham. We could walk to our favourite restaurants rather than having a taxi journey.
The only negative point I can make is, due to it's age and layout, that it is not very friendly to anyone with a handicap. There are a lot of stairs and no lift. This may rule out some of our friends using the Angel next year.
I can make no more higher recommendation of this hotel than to say that we are already booked in for next August bank holiday weekend. less
