The Crown and Castle

What our Guests Say

“We tried hard, wearing our sternest critics hats, not to be seduced by mere delicious food and lovely wines. We considered the staff, the ambience, the room, every single damned thing and finally came to the conclusion that, despite our closest scrutiny, it was all as delightful as ever. How disappointing and no fun at all. Nothing to carp at, no teeny weeny niggles, just a really super evening that reminded us exactly why we always love visiting you. So thank you again. You perform that most difficult of tricks; to remain consistently terrific, but still inventive, always interesting and smiling to boot! ”

“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!”
