Located right in the centre of Frome, the Archangel has an excellent reputation for its vibrant, warm hospitality, top quality restaurant food and quirky but first class accommodation.
First recorded as an Inn in 1311, the Archangel despite extensive renovations still reveals its medieval history with ancient beams and walls. Modern touches have been added such as suspended glass mezzanine cube, Italian-made mustard yellow chairs and zinc-topped bar.
Our 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 high quality linen, natural bath and body products from Bramley, a flat-screen television and Wifi.
Our Chef uses the best ingredients he can find and uses local suppliers so you can expect that the food is expertly crafted with a real passion for the British countryside. With a large selection of ales, wines and cocktails, the bar is the perfect place to enjoy a vibrant atmosphere.
We have many different events spaces and can cater for small or big events – from birthdays, dinner parties, team meetings or weddings.
We are proud to be part of The Epicurean Collection, a group of boutique countryside inns dedicated to the finest in British food, comfort and culture — all set in some of England's most idyllic locations. To join our online club or to book the perfect escape, please visit Epicurean.club
Archangel also has a Restaurant:
Archangel is part of the following Inspirations:
"Frome is an unexpected place, a busy, ancient old market town down a steep-streeted valley 13 miles from Bath. For years locals have said Frome is about to become the New Bath - but the old one hasn’t stepped aside yet.
When it does the Archangel Hotel will be a venue ripe for discovery. As a hostelry it was first recorded in 1311. From the outside Archangel is unremarkable, a low-rise whitewashed building on King Street, running parallel to the delightful boutique-lined Cheap Street (where you can buy yourself so much never knew you needed).
Inside the hotel you enter a low, glassed-over corridor from which bedrooms lead off in all directions. Five ancient buildings are actually linked together by this glass canopy, which means you might easily find yourself sleeping over an old barn or the inn’s former stable block. And at the end of the corridor up a flight of metal steps, a “free-floating” glass restaurant sits inside a massive ancient dovecote. “Freefloating” here means glass floors cantilevered from the ground so the medieval walls of ancient Frome are not compromised. It's quite something to behold.
Archangel's staff like clearly enjoy the building in which they work and they'll make you very welcome. They’re also very proud of their cocktail range by the way. But best of all are the hotel bedrooms, tucked away all over the place in this diminutive, bucolic, Falstaffian inn. Ask to see which are available; some of the best are up old narrow stairs you wouldn’t realise led anywhere. A door opens and hey presto: a big metal bath under the rafters and an even bigger bed.
So if your idea of romance is hiding away in a mediaeval inn with a cocktail or two Archangel may be the just place for you this February."
