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 faÁade 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 Hotelís highly acclaimed modern bistro for appetizing lunchtime snacks or itís delectable evening menu. In the relaxed and friendly environment of this popular restaurant, the Angelís chefs produce traditional dishes with a contemporary twist.

KISS THE BRIDE
T he kiss dates back to the earliest days of civilization in the Middle East. A kiss was used as the formal seal to agreements, contracts, etc. In Ancient Rome a kiss was still being used as the legal bold to seal contracts. Hence the obvious use of the custom at the end of the wedding ceremony to "seal" the marriage vows. It also originates from the earliest times when the couple would actually make love for the first time under the eyes of half the village!
