This was our second visit to the Crown & Castle and returning after such a first rate initial experience is often dangerous. However, we were not disappointed and we definitely demand of ourselves another stay in the future. After a 3 night stay, with our dog, we returned home several kilos heavier (despite the fantastic walks in Orford and surrounding... More

Thank you to the really friendly team - we only stayed one night and would have loved to stay longer but even so, we both felt wonderfully recharged. Our dog was made to feel very welcome in both the garden room and in Trinity restaurant. Lovely garden room, great food and I too particularly loved the soap - I now... More

We are very pleased that you and Monty enjoyed your stay with us. We do love our canine visitors and it's as much a pleasure to make them feel welcome as their owners. Thank you for the compliments about the food, room and, of course, the soap! Arran Aromatics grapefruit soap IS quite divine. We look forward to welcoming you... More

We returned to the C&C for a 2 night break and found it to be just as good as when we visited 3 years ago. We had a Better House Double in the main building (no 7) with lovely views of Orford Ness and the castle (keep). The hotel had warned us on booking that the room is above the... More

It is particularly good to receive reviews from guests who are returning after a few years because it gives us a benchmark as to how we are progressing. So, thank you very much – and for all the useful detail, especially about room 7 being quieter than you had expected. (We just like to make sure that anyone especially sensitive... More

We booked a last minute overnight stay at the hotel for the Sunday of the Bank Holiday weekend. On arrival our room was upgraded to a best garden room which was delightful. Spacious, very comfortable bed and small patio area with seating to enjoy the view if the lovely garden. The lady on reception was extremely welcoming and helpful, indeed... More

We have just come back from a wonderful August Bank Holiday break at this super hotel in Suffolk. From the moment you arrive in the car park next to the sunny outdoor eating and seating area you are made to feel like a long established and cherished friend. Nothing is too much trouble and the professional yet friendly atmosphere created... More

I stayed at this first class hotel over the 2014 August Bank Holiday Weekend. What a lovely experience. I and my 3 friends could not find fault with anything. From the lovely welcome when we arrived, up to the point of departure every single one the staff were amazing. Customer service and satisfaction is put first in this wonderful establishment.... More

We were staying with friends about 12 miles away when we found that an old mate and his wife had taken over the pub so had to include it in our tour. Made very welcome, the staff are very friendly and efficient

Ruth Watson practices what she preaches. This place was quite simply outstanding, and the reason is two fold: attention to the smallest details, and first class customer care. There is plenty of specific detail in the other reviews on this page; suffice it to say that if these high standards can be maintained, it deserves its success and I can't... More

The Crown and Castle is a very well run, comfortable hotel in a quiet, village location. Parking is either on site or (free) in the nearby village square. We are staying for three nights, in one of the comfortable "garden rooms" and are enjoying ourselves immensely. We have had some excellent evening meals in the lovely Trinity Restaurant and the...

It is always good to get an objective review from a seasoned traveller (noting your previous 68 reviews) and we are very grateful you did not find us wanting. We always tell putative guests that our food is good but of course it's such a subjective, debatable subject as to what that actually means. It is a great compliment that... More
