I would highly recommend the Crown and Castle if you are looking for a relaxing unpretentious place to stay in Suffolk. Lovely rooms, delicious food and welcoming staff. It is also well worth exploring the Orford Ness nature reserve and taking a walk out to the Lighthouse.

My partner and I have been there twice now. We love it. Every little detail is thought about. The rooms are clean. There is tea and coffee with hand baked biscuits left in the room. The staff are charming and knowledgable. The food in the resturant is also great. I would love to go back again.

I returned with friends to celebrate their 50th and allow our dogs ( brother and sister ) Some time together. It's also so nice to come to a quality establishment that gives premium accommodation were the dogs are welcomed and celebrated.

As a birthday treat some friends took me for Sunday Lunch to the lovely restaurant within this establishment and what a treat it was. On entering both the decor and ambience were first class and the staff were friendly, courteous and attentive. The four of us had pre meal drinks/cocktails and our orders were taken while we relaxed in the... More

After visiting Orford castle we decided to stop for a quick drink at the Crown and Castle. We sat with our drinks outside at the back and really enjoyed it. The place had a really good feel to it. What I could see as i first walked in to the pub was that it looked really nice and had a... More

Uniformly excellent standards throughout during our recent stays.The owners excel by ensuring that, rather than resting on their not inconsiderable laurels,the overall quality continues to evolve gently in a manner entirely in keeping with the relaxing nature of the hotel.The dining room has benefitted from a recent makeover-the larger tables are much appreciated and seem to make life easier for...

Just returned from celebrating my birthday (again!) at the C&C. This has to be one of Britain's best dog friendly hotels .....if you bring your pooch you need to ask for a best garden pet-friendly room. Beautiful lodge-style rooms in the garden. Pooch will be very well catered for and for those doggies who are restaurant trained there is a... More

no need to repeat what others have said about the first-class garden rooms, food and service. the 5 night deal is a very good idea, enabling you to do your own evening meal thing on 2 nights. Don't miss the "bon mots" in the info and menus, particularly the reverse of the breakfast menu. It's a scream!

Booked the hotel for my wife's birthday treat. The bedroom was stunning with a view out over the river. Everything in the room was perfect together with the little extras such as a flask of cold milk for making tea etc. Bathroom also excellent. Dinner was superb as was the breakfast. Adnams beer on tap and brilliant helpful staff. Also... More
