The rooms and breakfast are the best. The evening meals are disappointing. Being Norfolk and near the coast I would have thought local dishes like mussels in season, pork and game would have been on the menu.

We stayed at the end of November for two nights..we had room 14. Which was lovely very spacious and a huge bathroom. We did feel that when paying 200 pounds a night for the room, we shouldn't have to go along the corridor to get milk out of a fridge for our tea and coffee...also bathrobes would have been nice......

Just back from one night stay to enjoy the fabulous Christmas lights and lovely independent shops in Holt. Byfords never disappoints with its laid back luxury, relaxed but excellent food and friendly service. Our room was cosy with wood panelling, leather sofa and a very comfortable bed. Bathroom as always was huge and well equipped. A great way to get... More

The staff are extremely friendly and nothing is too much trouble. However to make this a balanced review I would make the following comments. Our room was large, warm... More

The original buildings are very old but careful restoration means that it all works yet retains the atmostphere of an old building.
