Fodor's Review

Artsy, laid-back, and genuinely friendly, this little gem occupies an 18th-century building in the village of Orford, 10 miles east of Woodbridge. It's run by Ruth Watson, who made a TV career out of visiting the country's worst hotels and turning them around. It's just as well then that this place is so pleasant and smoothly run. Many rooms have bathrooms with sunflower-size showerheads, and the garden rooms are particularly spacious. The Trinity Bistro focuses on Modern British fare, including fresh fish and local Butley oysters. In warm weather the outdoor terrace is a great place for grandstand views of nearby Orford Castle. No children under eight are allowed.
