Not Classified  Inn Ratings explained
1 King Street, Frome, BA11 1BH
First recorded as an Inn in the 14th century, the Archangel has an excellent reputation for its vibrant atmosphere, warm hospitality, top quality cuisine and quirky yet first-class accommodations.

The ten bedrooms are decorated in deep, rich purples and golds and include luxurious details such as sumptuous velvet curtains, zinc roll-top bathtubs and gold Florentine headboards. Facilities include flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi and Branche d'Olive toiletries.

The restaurant is built into a centuries old hay barn adjacent the main house. Ancient stone walls are simply whitewashed and embrace a free-floating glass mezzanine cube. The Archangel serves top quality food using the finest locally sourced ingredients and the stylish bar gives a buzzy atmosphere offering the finest local ales and original cocktails.

The Archangel is located right in the centre of Frome, a historic market town with cobbled streets. Bath is only 25-minute drive from the Archangel.'

There are Pay and Display car parks within walking distance in the town centre which offer free parking after 6pm.

Quirky with Exceptional Staff and Customer Service
The Archangel was recommended by a Frome local and also a customer of mine which I welcomed and booked accordingly. Situated in the centre of Frome Market Town, The Archangel is pretty much what is say’s on “The Tin” (otherwise known as their website!). We were welcomed by (unknown to us at the time) Eve, The Manager and without any fuss swiftly booked us in and showed us our room (8) in the courtyard. The Room is quirky, well apportioned, and spacious and has all amenities required although no outlook from windows being on ground floor in middle of town (not an issue). Complimentary Soft Drinks in the Mini Bar was a hidden plus! We had an early evening drink in the bar which is well laid out and attended too by very sociable staff. Our downside to the stay was that the room was inefficiently sound proofed and the noise from the quests / clientele in the courtyard and bar was overwhelming. We called reception and left a message voicing our displeasure at not being able to sleep due to the excessive noise level from the courtyard. Breakfast was very good, continental choice was minimal bit the cooked breakfast was excellent and fresh coffee the ideal start to the day. At checkout we answered the receptionist question on whether we had a good stay with the feedback on the noise from the previous night. Eve (The Manager mentioned earlier in review) was standing within earshot and immediately made it known that she had picked up our voicemail from the previous night and explained the whole situation regarding the excessive noise levels the night before. The issue was explained and managed very professionally and we left The Archangel promising to return in the future. Full marks to Eve and her Team, Excellent Customer Service is hard to come by these days – owners take note ;-)

Had a great stay! Welcoming, comfy room and good value for money
Had a really lovely stay, staff were welcoming and the room was comfortable and clean with some nice touches, but a little hot, even with the fan on all night - could do with some air con. Breakfast included and was very nice, all in all very good value for money, and would definitely stay again and recommend to family and friends.

Great pub
Loved our room, especially the huge bath. Great food and lovely courtyard. Room 1 a bit noisy in the wee small hours as overlooked the street. Other than that its fabulous - we've stayed three times so it must be good!

Will definiately stay again!!
This hotel was gorgeous, the staff were lovely, and the food was out of this world. I was a little disappointed with the room but that was because of late rooms being misleading. We will stay again but we will book direct with the hotel

Very enjoyable stay
Prompt and friendly welcome. Good sized bedroom; comfy bed and a good night's sleep. Shame about the dirty footprints on the light coloured carpet and could not find a room thermostat to up the heating a little. Had a superb evening meal in the restaurant and the breakfast was freshly prepared too. Would stay here again.

Fabulous and fascinating
From the moment we arrived until our final checkout we were made to feel welcome by all staff.
The inn was completely fascinating from a historical perspective and we were delighted to be offered an upgrade at no additional cost as the inn wasn't full booked.
Our entire stay was delightful and we shall definately return.
