Just back from another wonderful weekend here. It really doesn't get any better than this. Superb accommodation, fantastic food and wine. What makes this place really special is the people from the moment we arrive to the second we leave we are made totally welcome. It simply isn't possible to fault anything. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you...

Had a lovely time here great place and staff. My partner had the roast beef which was the best roast dinner we've had anywhere, beef was melt in the mouth tender, potatoes crisp but fluffy inside, two spot on yorkshires, perfectly cooked veg. If had to be picky and I really am - the gravy was just a bit on...

This hotel is extremely well run and pays great attention to it's guests putting their interests at the top of all they do. The room was light, airy and decorated with great taste. Beds were superb and very comfortable. Duvet thickness was just right and we had the quietest time we have ever spent in an hotel anywhere. All the...

Popped in for a quick couple of drinks before lunch. This is a very cozy hotel if the evidence of the bar is anything to go by. Comfortable bar, open fire, and very friendly staff. Good couple of pints of Adnams. The food looked good and we will eat here again next time. Great location aswell just up the road...

The hotel was very quite and cozy, it didn't feel like a hotel but felt like one bedroom house. The staff at the restaurant was very helpful with providing breakfast (since I needed to leave very early). Really enjoyed my stay there.

I am sick of the sight of burgers in brioche, pulled pork, things served on planks or slates and being asked is everything good for you guys? The Crown and Castle has a lovely menu of classic food with a modern twist and the service is excellent. I had a crab tart with the thinnest possible pastry and my husband...

I've reviewed this hotel before but it really does get better and better. We had a superb room overlooking Orford Ness. Slept so well, wonderful bed and so quiet. Dinner was a perfect meal for early Autumn. Crab tart with rich saffron custard, perfectly cooked pheasant with puréed and baked celeriac, kale and a rich sauce. Dessert was a proper...

Hotel restaurant might have been understaffed as it was October but the restaurant service was very slow indeed. We were given an apology and a main course free but found the experience very disappointing.

It needs to be said we are a proper restaurant which carefully selects the best local ingredients and cooks each dish to order. We are not a pub and do not use a microwave to preheat cooked dishes so customers can be served within minutes of sitting down. You were served promptly with your drinks and had to wait less...

Just got back after a three night stay at the C&C in room 31 (the one with the bath that overlooks the castle in case you wanted to book it too!). Room spotless and well appointed as always, and waking up to the sun coming over Orford Castle is well worth it! Service welcoming and cheerfully professional, and the food...

Thank you for your very complimentary review. Leo (the lion) had broken his paw and a few other ailments. He was an old chap and had manfully guarded our restaurant for 15 years. Our good friend Roger Hardy very kindly offered to heal Leo and he is not resting at home after his operation.
