The Angel Hotel :-
The Angel Hotel is privately owned and has been closely associated with the historic town of Midhurst and neighbouring Cowdray Estate since the 16th Century. It is a fine example of an old English stage-coach inn, sympathetically restored and upgraded. The hotel retains its heritage behind a neo-classical facade and many quality architectural features from its Tudor origins.
The front of the hotel overlooks the town and to the rear, behind flower filled courtyards and peaceful rose gardens, lie open meadows and the atmospheric ruins of Cowdray Castle.
The 28 bedrooms are all individual in character, some with four poster beds, separate sitting rooms, original fireplaces and views of the beautiful gardens and Cowdray Castle. All have ensuite bathrooms and many have wireless broadband.
The Angel has a choice of function rooms from the more formal Court Room to the garden room in the walled garden or the elegant Cowdray Room. We can offer the perfect surroundings for Weddings, Conferences and Dinners.
Try the Angel Hotel's highly acclaimed modern bistro for appetizing lunchtime snacks or it's delectable evening menu. In the relaxed and friendly environment of this popular restaurant, the Angel's chefs produce traditional dishes with a contemporary twist.
WHY IT BECAME "BAD LUCK" FOR THE GROOM TO SEE BRIDE BEFORE THE CEREMONY
Until relatively recently, brides were considered the property of their father. Their futures and husbands were arranged without their consent. The marriage of an unattractive woman was often arranged with a prospective groom from another town without either of them having ever seen their prospective spouse. In more than one instance, when the groom saw his future wife, usually dressed in white, for the first time on the day of the wedding, he changed his mind and left the bride at the altar. To prevent this from happening, it became "bad luck" for the groom to see the bride on the day of the wedding prior to the ceremony.
