Stayed in this Hotel earlier this week for the first time. Excellent accommodation, first class food, staff well trained and very good value. How Hotels used to be years ago, some rooms may need a coat of paint, but it's still a great Hotel. Fisherman251

Recently back from a long weekend with a group of friends we stayed at the Orwell for 2 nights. Ideal for Felixstowe, situated at the end of the high street, 10 mins from the sea. The staff were wonderful, always available to help, special mention of Kostas, the day manager, who greeted us Friday

Food very good although staff could probably do with a bit more training - not a problem though. Room perfectly adequate, with bathroom better than we'd expected. Lovely and quiet Would certainly go back.

Lovely hotel. Great character. Rooms clean with added perk of water in room. Staff excellent and bent over backwards to assist in my dietary requirements. Great for gluten and dairy allergies. Only bad point need to learn how to cook gf toast.

Whilst this hotel is a little dated, it is clean and the staff cannot do enough for you. With it being at the end of the main street it is ideal especially for the elderly, no hills to climb unless you want to go down to the seafront, There are lifts to all floors, the breakfast will set you up...

Our party was given our own dinning room which was beautiful as were all the other rooms we saw - quality ans style from the Victorian era.

facilities nice and clean, quiet pleasant surroundings made welcome on arrival by reception check-in was easy, breakfast was very poor and rushed which I was not happy with you got the feeling that the waitress's just want you to leave as soon as you could so they could stand around talking between themselves...
