The Orwell Hotel

Close to the town centre and just metres from Felixstowe Railway Station, this impressive Victorian hotel is rich in original charm and traditional character, with free parking for guests. Originally dating back to 1898, the Orwell Hotel is a traditional, old-fashioned hotel, which underwent a major refurbishment during the autumn of 2003. The property was initially built for Lord Tollemarch. Today, the spacious public areas are wood-panelled and traditionally decorated with a wealth of charm and elegance.There are 58 en suite rooms, all of which are tastefully furnished. Westerfield’s Restaurant has an elegant atmosphere and offers both a table d’hôte and an à la carte menu. Felixstowe is an Edwardian resort and, like the hotel itself, it still retains much of its original charm. The town features beautiful south-facing gardens, many attractions, safe beaches and a paved promenade. The hotel is just a mile (1.6 km) from the town’s port, and is approximately 30 miles from Harwich.

Please note that on certain days functions are held at the hotel and this often involves music being played until midnight. Guests can contact the property to check if they are any functions scheduled during their stay. Check-in between 12:00 and 14:00 is available for an additional charge of GBP 20, whilst before 12:00 costs 50 GBP. This is subject to availability. Guests are required to show a photo identification and credit card upon check-in. Please note that all Special Requests are subject to availability and additional charges may apply.
