We stayed in Room 1 at Byfords for our wedding anniversary. What a gorgeous room, and a fantastic stay. Everything was absolutely faultless in terms of luxurious comfort, customer service, great quality food, thoughtful additional touches... This was possibly the nicest mini-break we have ever had. Other establishments: Watch and Learn!

We know the Norfolk coast well and wanted a stay of three nights in order to visit close friends. Byfords Posh B&B was recommended by people who had stayed so we asked for one of the best rooms and we were delighted. So much thought has gone into the splendid design of the room and the en suite and the... More

We stayed just one night at Byfords and wish we had been able to stay for longer. A lovely comfortable room, excellent dinner and friendly helpful staff. Shall certainly look forward to a slightly longer stay.

We booked a couple of nights stay at Byfords because we were coming up to check out Voewood House as a wedding venue. We arrived fairly late, but this was no problem, and we were checked in efficiently and politely. Our room was good, but to be honest I don't think it lives up to the standard that I now... More

Fantastic stay, Byfords has a magically relaxed feel to it the minute you walk through the doors. Typical Norfolk style building in brick, flint & oak, it's homely and cosy but somehow manages to feel light and airy as well. The 'posh' bedrooms are wonderful with huge beds and the bathrooms are something else. From the moment we arrived we... More

From the moment we arrived, we felt relaxed at Byfords. The place has immense charm with its wooden beams and old brick walls. The booking process and welcome at reception was very warm and friendly. Our room was above reception, yet we didn't hear any noise from other guests. The room itself was amazing - very spacious, comfortable bed, nice... More

Booked for 2 nights after reading all the reviews and thought I put my penny in. Decided to throw caution to the wind and not worry about the price (me thinking what else I could buy with the money and back to the times when I didn't have any). It may of been because of everything closing at 5 or... More
