We were recommend this hotel as dog friendly and it was certainly that. We had a garden room and our dog Ben was left a bag of cheese tasties. Staff were all very friendly and the food was very good. The attention to detail by the managers was very good. Our waitress spilled some coffee onto the sauce and the...

The Crown & Castle is located in the centre of Orford and a short walk down to the quay, a particularly attractive spot. The three days were well organised with much attention to detail. The staff very attentive and friendly and the food was excellent and a great wine list with highly amusing comments by Ruth Watson. Our room (3)...

We booked a 'Festive Flop' break as a present to ourselves to recover from the 'stresses' of hosting Christmas and dust away the cobwebs before the New Year. As Orford is only 1 1/2 hours drive for us, and given that we love the Suffolk coastline, the Crown & Castle ticked the boxes for our mini break. We arrived on...

We booked for a fixed 3 night New Year deal. Looking at previous reviews and the Crown and Castle website we had high expectations for a relaxing stay. We were particularly pleased that we could take our dog. The website describes the Crown and Castle as a restaurant with rooms, although interestingly, on Ruth Watson's Wikipedia page it is described...

We went back for a 2 night stay, having been before when we had a dog. The welcome, the service, the food, drink and rooms were all as good as we remembered. The owners and staff are approachable and will do all they can to accommodate your requests and needs. We will definitely return. Not forgetting Orford is such a...

We wanted a good lunch away from the pre-Christmas crush, and that is what we got. A dog friendly table in the bar was set up for us, with a comfy throw, water bowl and treats for the dog. The food was full of flavour and a bit different to the usual choices. Staff very welcoming. A lovely real fire...

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...

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...
