My idea of relaxation does not involve staying in hotels, particularly in the UK. I've had the dubious benefit of having had to travel considerably for work so now would rather get up very early or drive home at night just to have my own home comforts. And to be honest I often think you find that someone else has... More

After the slightly alarming title of your review it was a great relief to find that did NOT feel as if you were treated like a second-class citizen! Thank you for having enough confidence in your friends' recommendation to try us out, and surviving what sounds like a horrible journey without turning round and heading home. We are really pleased... More

The Crown & Castle is my idea of a perfect small hotel....relaxed but very high standard. We had a mid week deal which made the cost very reasonable , full price for a best room might get a bit steep.

How nice that the C&C is your 'idea of a perfect small hotel'. That is very nice to hear and we thank you for the compliment. We are also glad you thought your Best House double was 'perfect'. I wish we could offer January deals throughout the year but unfortunately nice rooms, good food and good service require serious financial... More

Just had two nights at this lovely hotel, everything about it was just what we were looking for in February. The staff were very attentive without being overbearing , well appointed room with lovely views. The food was delicious, locally sourced. I would definitely recommend it to friends and would love to go back. Also lots to see and do... More

We stayed in one of the two best terrace rooms and had a beautiful view of the castle from the terrace. The hotel is decorated to the highest standard and the staff are all very friendly and accommodating. We had dinner booked in the restaurant for 7.30 and were invited to review the menu in the bar at 7 which... More

We have just returned from the most wonderful two night break at the C & C. The food was excellent, the staff brilliant and the accommodation superb. Every detail appears to have been carefully thought about. Would not have any hesitation in recommending this beautiful hotel

Suffolk is our favourite easy getaway from London; we really enjoyed our 1 night stay at the Crown and Castle and could have happily spent several more days next to their open fire, glass of wine in hand. The room (we went for the 'Better' room) was large, warm and comfortable, with a lovely view of Orford Castle. I am... More

Thank you very much indeed for writing such a positive review (particularly the bit about our not being chintzy)! We are so pleased you enjoyed your first stay with us and hope you'll return even when the log fire is not ablaze. Orford is lovely in the summer, and you can swap the sofa for the terrace! Thank you again... More

We have just returned from our fifth or sixth stay at this supremely laid back hotel. We have enjoyed breaks here, with the dog and without the dog, in high season and in low season, at weekends and in mid-week since about 2008, but the standard of service does not vary from consistently very good. From the comfortable rooms, to... More

If you like great food, a warm welcome, a luxury from things being just so, come here. The best example of how The C&C conducts itself is the story of their exceptional marmalade, chosen after a tasting session from a local producer who cooks this delicious concoction in open pans, which stops the fruit steaming and allows caramelisation. This attention... More

Thank you very much indeed for your complimentary review. We really appreciate it. Thank you, too, for the marmalade story although I have to correct one detail: it's not made locally but by Wendy Brandon in Pembrokeshire. Sadly, we have not been able to find anything of the same standard that is Suffolk-made. (One thing you have to look out... More

We stayed with friends at the Crown and Castle for two nights with our dog. Really good place to stay if you want a dog friendly stay. They have garden rooms that you can let your dog into a shared garden area and the room and hotel are set up for a dog friendly experience. The one area I would... More
