Oak Room Restaurant
Oak Room Restaurant - Angel Hotel, Abergavenny


The Angel Hotel, Abergavenny has been awarded 4 Silver Stars by The AA, following on from the accolade of winning the AA Hotel of the Year for Wales award at the end of 2016.


The AA gives a maximum of 5 stars to hotels which offer a “superior level of quality” and “high standards of hospitality, service and cleanliness”.


The achievement comes as part of The Angel’s dedication to offering excellently maintained facilities, attentive staff and a consistent standard for quality cuisine. The Angel has become an integral part of Abergavenny and the local area, continually supporting local suppliers alongside helping the food and culture offer of the town to flourish, with the opening of a sister property ‘The Angel Bakery’ and through showcasing local artwork around the hotel. The Angel’s team are all part of a continuous training and development programme, with special focus on exceptional service, hospitality and comprehensive food knowledge.

The hotel’s smart Georgian façade houses 34 stylish guest rooms, The Oak Room restaurant, The Foxhunter bar, three private event spaces and The Wedgewood room, where the hotel’s decadent afternoon tea (which has held a UK Tea Guild ‘Award of Excellence’ since 2008) is served.

The hotel is located in the heart of Abergavenny’s market town, a short walk from the castle and Linda Vista gardens.

Also, The Telegraph, one of the UK’s leading broadsheet newspapers, has named  Gladstone’s Library in their list of ‘10 amazing properties that prove you’re wrong about B&Bs’.


The article describes Gladstone’s Library in Hawarden, Flintshire as a ‘glorious and historic place’…not just a B&B but a peaceful, restorative retreat’. It goes on to praise the Library’s ‘convivial company…delicious local food and lovely staff’ summing up the atmosphere as one of ‘sheer old-fashioned decency’.


The accolade comes just one week after the Library was featured in the New York Times in an article titled ‘A Refuge for Liberal Values Beneath a Stern Victorian Gaze’. Read the full feature here.
