This is the most dog-friendly hotel I have stayed in. The have five dedicated garden rooms for dog owners to stay in with their dogs. There is a pleasant garden for human and dog use accessed by a rear door from the room with some private outdoor seating outside each room. The room was large, clean and light. In the... More

Meeting with friends for a birthday surprise meal, we have the private room for the eight of us which was nice although you do also miss out on the atmosphere of the restaurant. The service could be better when in a separate room, you do seem to be forgotten which is a shame, we have to hunt staff out a... More

A remarkable attention to detail is at the heart of this very, very good restaurant/hotel. Everything has been thought through, clearly by people who know what guests (with or without dogs) want and how to provide with the maximum efficiency and minimum fuss. Two dinners and two breakfasts (no buffet,a rare treat), were all of the highest quality, local food,... More

What a nice title to your review! Thank you very much indeed. All the more generous as there were a couple of things that didn't entirely meet your approval. We are really pleased you liked the food and wines but sorry you didn't like all the artworks. (Incidentally, the 'cat cartoon' in your bedroom is a Louis Wain and, yes,... More

My self and three friends came across The Crown & Castle hotel for lunch. We sat outside and were impressed by the surroundings and the staff that served us. The food we had was excellent. We then asked for a tour of the hotel with a view to coming back at some stage to stay. The female member of staff... More

Thank you so much for coming to have lunch and for your very nice comments about your 'tour guide'! We know a lot of people who start off with a casual visit to Orford, end up eating here and quite often come back to stay. It's very satisfactory! Anyway, I do hope you will return for a longer visit and... More

My wife and I stayed here in June for 2 nights. We chose the hotel for its coastal location, the food looked good and because it took dogs. In the end we led the dogs behind but they would have been very welcome and catered for. The garden rooms are excellent with small verandas / patios with lawn in which... More

We very much like the reasons you chose to stay at the C&C, namely our coastal location, good food and the fact we welcome dogs. Hopefully, there will be a next time and you will bring the latter with you. We are so pleased you found everything to your liking, from a comfortable room, dinner, 'super' breakfast and the Arran...

A professionally run hotel and restaurant. Clearly a lot of thought has been put into the smallest detail, this combined with the visible and hands on management makes for an enjoyable experience. Lovely bedroom (no. 1) with a great view of the river and sea beyond. A very pleasant dinner is served in their restaurant and a good breakfast with... More

Thank you so much for your very kind report - particularly welcome as you are such an experienced traveller. We are very pleased you enjoyed your room, the food and, of course, the village itself. Orford is a very special place and it is always lovely when people recognise its unique ambience. Thank you again. More

Where to start? It almost goes without saying that the food is outstanding. The only problem was seeing the agony on my husband's face as he tried to decide between three equally tempting main courses! I'm a non- meat eater and the fish was so good that I ended up eating it twice a day - try the undyed smoked... More

Thank you so much for your lovely review, not least the eye-catching title! We are delighted that you enjoyed the food (especially the fish - it is something we actively promote, being on the coast), rooms and service. It was a delight to look after you and we hope to see you again soon. More

We stayed here for 2 nights to play golf as well as visit the locality. I had tried to book other places but none looked as good or weren't available so I went with the TripAdvisor feedback despite the rather high price for B&B. Well, it was delightful! The place is charming; our garden room was comfortable with a nice... More

So glad you like our tin! Thank you very much indeed for taking a chance on us. We are delighted everything came up to standard, from the village itself to breakfast, dinner and our staff.
