Best Western Angel Hotel, Chippenham. Room spacious and comfortable, a little old fashioned by using keys for entrance to bedrooms rather than key cards, also as weather was bad we had to use waterproofs to get from bedrooms to reception / dining. Parking can be an issue as space is limited and no public restrictions for access. Staff very helpful and excellent food. Do not expect high quality coffee - it is normal hotel standard! Collapse

Several buildings are blended around a quiet Gladstone garden. Car par is at the rear and it takes a few minutes to locate Rebeption at the Front. Rooms are comfortable. Restaurant and snack meals are good value. We were unfortunate in that the Receptionist was not welcoming and officious. We did not let that put us off. However, a 10.30 am phone call from the Receptionist on our departure warning us to be out by 11 am was abrupt and left us feeling we were a nuisance. WILL NOT RETURN. Collapse

I was really surprised that a hotel of this standard had rooms that were not cleaned properly. My room was in the old part of the hotel and very comfortable. The skirting boards had not been cleaned for months as the dust was clearly visible. The tea tray had not been cleaned from the last occupant but worse than this was that the bath had scum round the sides. I did sleep well as it was quiet. They mentioned that bath robes were available on request but it would have been nice if they were already in the rooms. Location is the centre of Chippenham which is what you pay for. There was a swimming pool, a nice courtyard area and parking. The reception seemed a bit temporary but it was an interesting historic building. I ate dinner and breakfast at the hotel which was of high quality. This hotel could be great. Collapse

My arrival was not an auspicious start. I stood in reception for fifteen minutes while the only receptionist on duty was taking a very long and involved phone call. She didn't even have the courtesy to acknowledge my presence! Another guest was queueing behind me and in the end they went to the bar and asked for someone else to help. Eventually I was checked in and went to my room - which involved walking all the way back across the courtyard the way I had come in from the car park! Speaking of which, you need to register your car on a tablet in reception or you will get a parking ticket! My room was OK. It was on the third floor with a dormer window with very heavy curtains sort of draped onto a rail on the wall. It was not possible to fully close them because they had hooks hanging out at the rail end. There were many cracked tiles on the bathroom floor which didn't seem to be very clean around the edges. The bath, the basin and lavatory were all stained and looked like they could do with a darned good clean. The housekeeper obviously decided to either not replace or even wash used drinking glasses or else to wipe them out with a very dusty cloth. Likewise the coffee mugs. I do not think that this hotel ever actually replace these with clean ones because there is no lift so everything has to be carried up and there was no evidence of clean crockery when I did see the housekeeping staff. I made a point of manually washing everything before use. The shampoo, conditioner and lotion in the bathroom were only replaced once during a five night stay. A bit paltry if I may say so! I went for breakfast one morning at 7.00am (which is when they start although I would prefer it to be earlier). I helped myself to a juice and then sat and sat and sat. After being ignored for ten minutes I left without breakfast. I tried again the next day and was served. I asked for two rashers of crispy bacon and two fried eggs. I was given just one rasher and two eggs which were skidding around my plate in a sea of oil. Really, really greasy! Almost un-eatably so. I mopped the grease up with a paper napkin. I tried one last time and ordered again two rashers of crispy bacon and with two poached eggs this time. I again received only one rasher and two very under-done over-runny and very watery eggs. I can poach eggs better than that! My terms included breakfast but if I had paid almost £13 for it then I would have been very, very disappointed. The juice tasted watered down and the coffee (served in a cafetiere) was pretty awful and tasteless! The toast was fine. My advice is to book room only and grab breakfast at one of the many places just outside the front door! Considering the price of this hotel I think they could do better! The only really positive thing I can say is that it is convenient for the town centre. Collapse

Stayed here for a couple nights when we visited longleat and other places. Very nice hotel, get in nice grounds and in a good part of chippenham with the high street/ pubs and restraunts within walking distance. We stayed in their Lowden suite which was very spacious and cosy, the room had a tv with freeview as well as a I pod/ iPhone docking station. We had a bed and brekfast package, and the breakfast was of a very high quality and served by friendly staff, we didn't use the bar or order any evening meals or room service as the menu did seem rather expensive. The hotel also has leisure facilities such as a pool which we didn't use in the end as you have to Pay extra to use and for the size of the pool, we didn't think it would be worth using . Overall this hotel deffently impressed us alot better than other hotels we stayed at previously and would deffently wouldn't rule out returning in the future. Collapse

The Angel is one of the few hotels in the country we have visited for a second time. We returned for a weekend break as it is most convenient for visiting Laycock and Bristol as well as the town of Chippenham. Once again we found the hotel to be an excellent place to stay and this time being the summer it was most relaxing to just sit in the rose garden and enjoy the flowers and calm surroundings The swimming pool is clean is a gem and only a short distance from the rooms in the newer part of the hotel. The breakfast menu has a wide variety to choose from and the service was very efficient with the food arriving hot. We ate a very delicious an evening meal in the restaurant although the desserts were a little overpriced for the type of dishes offered. We had a ground floor room with a window opening on to the garden as opposed to a first floor room last time. Ground floor rooms have the advantage of not having to carry cases upstairs and if you also have a garden view that is an added bonus Collapse
