The Crown and Castle

What our Guests Say

“The surroundings were terrific, I bought fresh bread from the bread shop, fresh home smoked cheese, ham and kippers from the smokery and couldn’t believe the paper shop was in the town hall with an honesty box. What a place to live! I am so fortunate to have found you.”

“I had high hopes for a perfect stay – and I wasn’t disappointed. Every detail of the C&C is infused with a practical elegance, and every task carried out with a friendly efficiency… something that’s surprisingly rare!”

“Orford is a foodies heaven and so beautiful. The C&C is the jewel in its crown!”

“We just wanted to say a big ‘Thank You’ to all the staff at the Crown and Castle for making another of our stays at this hotel a wonderful experience. Great food, wine, room, beakfast, ambience, and of course, great staff to boot.”

“Could not have asked for a more perfect place. Quiet, restful, tastefully decorated. Excellent staff and the food at dinner was world class!”
