Stopped for lunch and couldn't have had a more warm a welcome.; service excellent. Food fantastic - especially the crab & leek on toast and the potted shrimp.

if you only ever have one creme brulee before you die - have it here! Fabulous!

It's particular nice to get a lunch review because I am sure a lot of people think we only serve 'proper' food. We know our 'smart pub lunch' is popular and, hopefully, it's because the food is casual but cooked with as much care as the a la carte in the evening. Anyway, who can resist really good fish and chips! Thank you very much for this report and we hope to see you again soon.

Home from a fantastic and relaxing Easter weekend at our favorite place.

Once again the accomodation was great, the food and wine never dissappoint and the staff are the icing on the cake.

The atmosphere is relaxed and the sevice outstanding, a perfect balance.

Tim, David and all the restaurant staff worked tirelessly over a busy weekend, as I'm sure the people behind the scenes did, you should all be very proud.

Finally, thank you for all the Easter treats although the bunny finding was the highlight!

Can't wait for the next time.

I'd had a stressful week. I needed something to look forward to. A little treat away from home to draw a big fat line under the tribulations of work and prepare me mentally to enjoy a bank holiday weekend at home. A nice place to stay, good food and wine and somewhere that wouldn't mind if the dog came too. It shouldn't be too much to ask, should it? I set about Googling, more in hope than expectation. Then I found this place. And it had a special offer. I phoned, thinking there was no chance rooms would still be available at such short notice, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that they could accommodate us and the dog. After that the pleasant surprises just kept coming: the lovely warm greeting at reception, the fuss made of our almost-blind dog who could not have been made more welcome, the impeccable service by the friendly and helpful waiting staff, the delicious dinner, the fabulously comfortable room, the magnificent breakfast and the civilised check-out time. We just loved it. We're already planning to return.

Room Tip: We stayed in a garden room, because of the dog, but were in no way disadvantaged by this arrangement...

Lovely hotel, stayed in main house. Very good breakfasts, food cooked to order, evening meals also good. Beds very comfortable, good nights sleep. Orford is a nice village with small shops and nice work down to the water front. Try boat trip up the estuary.

Room Tip: We enjoyed having a room in the main house. Better house room was very spacious , with a nice large...

We have been regular visitors to the C & C since they started. We endorse all the comments on its excellence made by our fellow visitors and feel that there is little more to be said. We can only add our admiring recognition of the high standards consistently maintained by management and staff. A truly remarkable hotel.

This was out 3rd visit to the Crown & Castle and it was every bit as fabulous as our previous stays. Nothing is too much trouble - the staff are very friendly and attentive but definitely not overbearing! We have always stayed in a Garden Room and these are spacious, comfortable, and excellently appointed - great bathrooms!

Room Tip: The Garden Rooms all have private sitting areas outside which face into the garden and benefit from...

Thank you so much for your very kind report. We are particularly thrilled that you have endorsed the Garden rooms as being spacious and well appointed. Putative guests are sometimes concerned that they might be cold or less comfortable than the main hotel rooms, which is not the case. We look forward to seeing you again.

The hotel is set in a very interesting part of Suffolk. We stayed one night and did a boat tour although in summer two nights may be better with more open to see such as th Ness.

The room was well appointed with a clear thought process going into all the detail. Bed was really comfy and there was no noise. We had a regular room which was not large but ok all the same for size.

The food was great and very good value. The wine a little heavy on price but great quality. The warm and helpful staff made the visit very comfortable. Well done to the whole team led by Ruth, David and Tim.

Truly relaxing and will be back again.
