i am with Colin291 and wholly second his review. This is a perfect hotel where the staff really care about their customers. Like Colin we have stayed at many (often more expensive) hotels in the UK but only here have we experienced customer focussed care of the highest order. Our lovely garden room with outside terrace was fabulous. Great bed... More

The Crown and Castle markets itself as 'A restaurant with rooms' and we were not disappointed with our dining experience at both dinner and breakfast. The food, predominantly locally sourced or from specialist producers, was high in quality, superbly cooked and tastefully presented. The waiting staff worked hard to provide the best service. Breakfast was cooked to order, which was... More

we dropped in for lunch on our way home from Southwold and were very glad we did. This is a very welcoming, hotel with excellent staff who cannot do enough to ensure you have exactly what you want. We sat outside originally but the wind got up so we went inside and there was not problem with changing our able... More

My husband and I spent a weekend here to celebrate his birthday. We stayed with our dog in one of the garden rooms. It's hard to convey the friendly welcome and subsequent amazing service we received. We have stayed in some incredible hotels around the world and yet here in Orford we experienced probably the best service ever! Without question... More

The Crown and Castle is a brilliant example of how paying attention to detail delivers a superlative result. It has the handwriting of Ruth Watson all over it from the exquisite bedside chocolates sourced from the continent (as opposed to a stale chocolate hobnob) through to the bathroom toiletries that my wife consumed (figuratively). Superb cuisine for dinner with locally... More

After seeing the veggie menu we both chose from this selection. This was probably the most interesting veggie selection I have seen for a long while. I had chilli linguine and my partner the puy lentil cassoulet. Both were fab. The crackling potatoes to start were a great tasty mix with cheese and pesto. A Campari sorbet to finish off... More

Having reserved a table visited as a non resident for Sunday lunch.A warm welcome and it was good to be offered a selection of sherries for a pre-lunch drink as I find this is a very underrated tipple these days. They are renowned for their roast beef but on this occasion we had the fish which was excellent . We... More

Just spent a really relaxing weekend at the Crown and Castle. It is a fantastic hotel offering a real escape from the busy lives we all lead. The staff are so helpful and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We had two amazing meals in the Trinity Restaurant as well as generous made to order breakfasts. Will definitely be... More

Having had to cancel a holiday we were desperate for a break by the sea and chanced upon the Crown and Castle. It was all just right from start to finish, the room to the food, the service - everything, we could not have asked for a better break. Just lovely.

We have eaten many times at this great hotel but decided to make it our base this time for three nights since it is 'dog friendly' establishment. It couldn't have been better. Everything has been thoughtfully put together to provide the perfect country retreat. The room was comfortably furnished and spotlessly clean and the staff couldn't have been more friendly... More
