We booked a last minute two night break, staying in a garden room. We had several meals in the restaurant during our visit, every meal was delicious and the service was first class. The reason for the marking down in the rating of this hotel was due to the room, it was not as clean it should and quite easily...

Thank you very much for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed the food and service, and are distressed to hear about housekeeping not being up to snuff. Needless to say, when we read what you had said and went to check the room, the cobwebs had gone. But it is not acceptable for so many things to have been...

Have waited a long time to visit the Crown & Castle in Orford as I have heard so many great reviews of the hotel. The hotel is a beautiful 17th century building and in great shape, the inside is just as wonderful and you feel immediately at home, log fires and sofas to sink into, nice little bar and reception...

We must admit to being biased. We have stayed at the Crown and Castle before… on numerous occasions. Previously with our two dachshunds, and this time on a three night stay for just the two of us for a change. We had a lovely time with some very nice weather thrown in free of charge ! As usual service was...

From start to finish everything here is perfect. The staff are friendly and attentive without being obsequious, the food is interesting and delicious with enough variety to suit every taste and to a standard worthy of any award. Highlights included a fantastic carpaccio and beautiful fresh fish (not unreasonable since we're at the coast!) The wine list is extensive and...

Thank you so much for your delightful review. We are so pleased you and Eddie enjoyed your stay. Even more pleased that you understand we try hard to make everything comfortable for everybody and that can involve some guidelines. We hope to see you again soon but can only provide fostering, not full-scale adoption, we regret!

We visited today for lunch (Monday). It was cold and grey with some rain in the air, really not very pleasant. We (6 people) were booked in for lunch at 1230 and the Crown and Castle had taken a deposit from me of £120.00 against our arrival approximately three weeks ago (despite the fact that we were the only people...

Thank you for your appreciation of the food and service at the Crown and Castle. Our staff are indeed wonderful and I am glad your party felt well looked after.

Recently spent one night with dinner with my husband which we had booked as a birthday celebration. On arrival we were very pleased to receive a free upgrade to one of the hotel main rooms which had a lovely sea view. The room was very nice. We later had a very pleasant pre dinner drink in front of an open...

Thank you for mentioning the free upgrade we offered you on arrival, which had a value of nearly £100 and allowed you to occupy the room you wanted but did not book. We are more than concerned, however, that you believe we were in some way to blame for your stomach upset. As you attribute this to local, freshly smoked...

My wife and I popped in for lunch last year.
