First visit with friends who have been many times. Room was lovely, pretty garden room with a little terrace to sit out, delightful. Easy for us as one of us has problems with walking. Room also had a large walk in shower which was a great help.

We did not stay in the hotel but enjoyed Sunday lunch in the restaurant. 5 star service. Very helpful friendly staff. We all chose the roast beef. It was truly delicious.....lovely starters and a good selection of desserts. This was not our first visit to the Crown and Castle and will definitely not be our last!

This is the place that everyone else who runs a hotel/guest house should visit to see how to run a top class hotel. I couldn't fault it. The food was brilliant, the room was very comfortable and the staff were such a great bunch of people - thoughtful, smiling and so helpful without ever being intrusive. Orford is a lovely... More

Thank you very much. We did think at one time of running classes for would-be hoteliers in the Winter months. Regrettably, although we try very hard, we are not perfect and fought shy of telling everyone else what to do. What works for us would work for most people if they are nice and in a lovely location like Orford. More

We were lucky enough to be upgraded to the room with a view and what a view it is! For me, this very comfortable hotel was made exceptional by the little bit of extra effort that all the staff put into making our stay a happy one. The restaurant is, well, outstanding for Suffolk and they have a great wine... More

We loved our spacious Garden Room and our dog, Poppy, received a wonderful welcome, as we did from the very friendly staff. The food was excellent and the decor and object d'art beautiful. Thoroughly recommended.

This is a copy of a note that I sent to the restaurant. Self explanatory really. "I represent the noisy rabble who inhabited the private room yesterday lunch time. We were well looked after.
