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...

We stayed for 2 nights and were really impressed by many of the small touches that make a stay special. We had booked one of the smaller rooms which was as described on the web site. I know it's only detail but things like good sized soap in the bathroom and really nice chocolate biscuits and fresh milk in the... More

We so enjoyed our stay, which was a dinner, bed and breakfast. So peaceful, and quiet. The room was excellent, very clean and amazing attention to detail. The dinner was delicious with so many choices. The staff were super attentive, and we felt very well looked after. The restaurant is cosy and informal and we just felt relaxed and very... More

Truly lovely stay and wonderful meal for us with our pooch. All three of us made very welcome and comfortable. Food extremely good. Next night at Le Talbooth also good but we kept talking about the wonderfully relaxed but high quality Crown & Castle. Nice to see Ruth working the floor on a Friday evening. Beautiful doggie walks straight out... More

We decided to have a birthday treat at this lovely hotel. We were both delighted with the room and especially the fantastic food. It was a most relaxing experience and would stay there again. The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly.

Met up with family here for a luncheon. Very impressive. Lovely area outside for lunch, great choice of menu. No parking for non residents though, so be aware. Well worth the effort in finding and experiencing as you won't be disappointed. Good food with good prices as well.

We are delighted that you and your family enjoyed our Smart Pub Lunch (available Mon-Sat inc.) As you know we serve this outside on the terrace when it's warm and sunny enough, which is not always the case on the East Coast! (It's normally the sea breezes that prevent al fresco lunching, rather than rain.) Thank you for mentioning the... More

Looking for a short break from work and from parenthood, we booked into the Crown and Castle for one night. First impressions were fantastic; we had a garden room with own patio for relaxing in the sunshine before dinner. The hotel is a short walk from both the castle and the quayside. We decided to forego an Adnams at either... More

We are so pleased you had a 'perfect break'. Thank you for the great description of the C&C and its location. Thank you, too, for more good descriptions of the food – often guests will say it is great but don't specify exactly what they had. It's always useful, I think, for putative guests to know what's on offer. I... More

For a peaceful stay in an area famous for its castles and fish restaurants Orford cannot be missed! The hotel provided luxury chalet accommodation complete with a terrace adjacent to a private garden which was filled with butterflies and swifts. The breakfast, cooked to order, was magnificent and dinner in the attached Trinity Restaurant was sublime - with different menus... More

It is really nice to get a review that doesn't just praise the C&C, but describes and praises other features of Orford and its environs, too. Thank you for both.

I booked a night's stay to celebrate my partners 50th birthday. We are locals to Suffolk and have eaten at the doggy table several times before but it was lovely to stay too and we had a wonderful relaxing break. Difficult to find anything to fault really. It is expensive but worth it for a special treat.

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

Thank you so much for your very positive view. I am glad you found that humans were equally as well looked after as our doggie visitors! It's a shame you didn't have dinner with us but perhaps if you come again you will. As long as we have notice at the time of booking, we can offer a really good... More
