We are neither a country house hotel in the ruched-curtain, prohibitively expensive sense, nor a boutique hotel where cutting-edge design precludes hospitality – or functionality. Our aim is to offer a relaxing atmosphere with thoughtful, smiling service; interesting food with a British and authentic Italian bias; and simple but comfortable bedrooms with good beds. Orford itself does the rest.
