We say

Old Orford hands will remember when this was an indifferent local pub with a handful of rooms upstairs. Then it was taken over by the original TV hotel inspector, Ruth Watson, and gussied up in a contemporary style that brought it into the modern age and firmly onto the boutique hotel map, and although not the local hangout it once was there’s no better place to stay overnight and enjoy Orford’s gentle and unhurried air. As you might expect of one of Watson's places, the service here is fab, and the hotel's eighteen guest rooms, in the main building and outbuildings, are stylish yet simple – perhaps more so than you might expect. Naturally, the ground floor restaurant  is a destination in itself, and the hotel offers good value, dinner-included breaks if you plan to stay more than one night. .
