Angel Hotel

A 500-year-old hotel and ex-coaching inn that's been at the heart of Guildford since Saxon times, with a cool Crypt Bar and a collection of ghosts.

With a history dating back over 500 years, and a guestlist that includes names such as Charles Dickens, Jane Austin and Lord Horatio Nelson, the Angel can justifiably claim to be one of the most interesting places to stay in Surrey. Located slap bang in the centre of Guildford since the Middle Ages, the former posting house and coaching inn now offers 21 bedrooms – ranging from deluxe doubles and twins with four-poster beds, through to the more modern 'Apartment', which is kitted out for self caterers. The stone-vaulted undercroft – available for private dining and banquets – dates back to the 1300s and still has the remains of the original spiral staircase, and the hotel serves guests drinks down here in the atmospheric Crypt Bar. They also have a good upstairs restaurant. The Angel is the final stop on the Guildford Ghost Tour, and among the ghostly apparitions that are said to be regulars here is the spectral figure of foreign soldier. 


You can get a deluxe double from £109 per night, or book the Apartment for £149. Look out for deals.
