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

After a hectic period at work I was looking forward to a few days away with my partner! Upon walking into our beautiful room you could be mistaken for thinking you've walked into someones flat! The room was gorgeous. The bed was cloud like and extremely well dressed and clean! The kitchen and bathroom was immaculate looking, like it had... 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

I have stayed at Byfords a handful of times over the past few years, and after not visiting for a couple of years we went back as a family member bought us a Byfords voucher for Christmas. We stayed for one night on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis in room 14 and it was lovely. The room was very... More

I stayed here on business and just wished it was for pleasure with my husband! The room was exceptional (number 6 in the eves), lovely bed, fabulous bathroom. I simply can't fault anything.

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

We stayed for one night in this "Posh B&B" and it was fabulous. The room was immaculatlely clean, beautifully set out, fresh flowers and candles in the bathroom (sublime), shortbread to nibble on and complementary tea and cake in Byfords if you so wished. The Staff was friendly, effecient and knowledgeable. Noise was a very small issue on a couple... More

We spent two nights here in the run up to Christmas, in a King size superior room (room 14). The room itself is lovely, a really good size with a big bed and modern look. The ensuite is very large, marbled but with under floor heating which is fab! The bath is enormous and double ended so can fit two... More

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. Some rooms are noisy due to people talking loud in the reception area, roof extract fans that run all night, and hand dryers... More

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......
