First class food and service! beautiful cosy fire on a very cold evening!
My first visit but definitely not my last!

I really liked this place and will go back.

Went for a birthday weekend and both us two and the dog were made to feel really welcome.

The location is perfect. Orford is lovely with plenty of eateries, walks and curios.

The pressure on a celebrity venue must be enormous but these guys manage it with complete aplomb and in their own unique and humorous style. There are a lot of 'notes' but I sort of liked them.......

I enjoyed the restaurant. It is worth it's 2A's. Well organised and a good local menu.The wine list is really well stocked and very good value.

It is an exceptionally well run establishment which manages to give a personal touch even though it obviously has a high occupancy.

Breakfast was fab and the staff are delightful

We had a wonderful weekend at The Crown & Castle in November 2012. We arrived later than planned after having some car trouble, we had called ahead to explain our situation as we were concerned about missing our dinner reservation and were assured we had nothing to worry about, they would seat as whenever we arrived. We were greeted in the car park by Tim, the manager, who straight away offered us a room upgrade to one of the garden rooms (we'd booked a good house double). After showing us to our room and helping with our luggage he promptly returned with a canister of fresh milk. None of those small plastic pots of long-life milk here! It is the small things like this that make The Crown & Castle so special.

The food at The Crown & Castle is delicious. Dinner was great, one of the best meals we've ever had and breakfast was perfect. They use local produce and everything is great quality and really fresh. They have a great wine list to suit all budgets and you can enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the bar by the open fire.

Our room was really nice. The bed was very comfortable and we both had the best nights sleep we've had in a long time. The room was spacious and very clean. It rained the whole weekend we were there so we didn't make use of the small private terrace, overlooking the garden, but imagine it would be lovely during the summer months.

The staff at The Crown & Castle are second to none. They are so friendly and attentive and go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. We've never stayed anywhere with staff as great as the staff at The Crown & Castle.

We cannot say a bad word about The Crown & Castle. We would definitely recommend it and can't wait to go back ourselves.

We took family there for a festive meal and, as always, it was all wonderful - drinks, food, service, decor. If we didn't already know the food would be great, it would be hard to move away from the cosy real fire! Good menu choices and portion sizes just right, not teeny and precious nor oversized for the sake of it.

My husband and I recently returned from a two night 'Festive Flop' break at this wonderful hotel. We were greeted by the friendly staff after a somewhat fraught journey from Kent and shown to our room by the lady herself (co-owner Ruth Watson) which was a surprise; not to say an added bonus! Having watched her tv programmes avidly and owning her very useful diet book I am a bit of a fan and am pleased to say she practices every bit what she preaches! She took a great deal of time explaining the various aspects of the room & bathroom etc and seemed genuinely concerned about us. This was further reinforced by every member of staff we came across;as their website says this is a hotel that actually likes its' customers!
We stayed in a room in the main part of the hotel, and had been upgraded (also a very nice surpprise) to one with a view of Orford Ness. Superb bed, great attention to detail (fresh milk-UHT milk in plastic is one of our pet hates) fabulous bathroom with enormous shower and lovely toiletries. The food in the restaurant is fantastic and everything is done without show or pomp or any of the nonsense that often abounds in this standard of hotel.
This was our first visit and we're planning our return!
Many thanks & Happy New Year
Sara & Pete

Thank you very much indeed for this lovely review. I (Ruth) am glad to hear I came up to scratch with the welcome (just as well)! We are very glad to hear you enjoyed the facilities, particularly the bed, and enjoyed the food. Best of all, thank you for 'getting' that we try and do things properly but without any pretentious rubbish attached. We look forward to welcoming you back.
