We had a lovely relaxing family weekend at the Orwell, the food was fabulous and the service was friendly. The pianist added a unique feel to the dining experience and there are many of Felixstowe's attractions within walking distance.

What can I say about the Orwell hotel! Our car broke down and our phone was out of charge no phone boxes (apart from emergency only) So we called into the Orwell hotel and asked the receptionist if we could use their phone to get in touch with our breakdown service. The receptionist would not hear of our paying for... More

The lunches are remarkable value. Yesterday I think was the best ever!! Starter beautifully cooked scallops served with crispy bacon, black pudding and pea puree, this was followed by battered cod, the batter so crispy I ate it all, mushy peas and excellent chips. As if this were not enough pudding was an individual bakewell tart with such crispy light... More

We attended a wedding here so decided to stay the night. Room 218 Standard room was spacious, quiet, with double size comfy double bed, plus tea making provisions, trouser press & the wardrobe had enough hangers & a hair dryer provided, kept inside it. Clean bathroom with bath & overhead shower. Sadly we found (too late to do anything) only... More

I have visited here many times now on my holidays in Felixstowe. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The library and snug under the staircase are charming. I have always had a delicious pot of Assam tea on my visits which you get plenty of for the money. On my first visit this holiday I decided to have a... More

We stayed over at the Orwell Hotel for two nights. View impressions count and the reception staff pulled out all the stops. The lift scared us a bit when it wouldn't budge so we told the receptionist and they sorted it out (luckily I was able to prise the door open). Our suite (room 231 Harry Richards) was massive. Adorned... More

A Golden Wedding celebration held in Lordship's Library was expertly managed, service and food were excellent. Whilst the bedroom was a little tired, it was comfortable and clean. Very very squeaky floor!

We had a one night stay at the Orwell Hotel as we attended a Charity event there. From the moment we arrived staff were friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The room we had was fantastic - modern, clean and spacious, the food excellent. Considering there were over 200 people at the charity event everything flowed to perfection.... More

Stayed here in one of the upgraded rooms overlooking the gardens, a very modern and spotlessly clean room with all the facilities. Hotel is very classy and reflects an age where courtesy and service were paramount. All the staff were very attentive and well dressed, no jeans here! The chef offered to cook us something different and was very open... More

I recently stayed here and found the hotel to be friendly and welcoming. The decor is classic and the twin room I had was a lovely size. Everything worked, it was nice and clean, comfortable beds and with tea and coffee making facilities. The only downsides were that the room was a little tired and was so incredibly hot, even...
