We were greeted with complimentary cake and drink on arrival. In this case appearances are deceptive. The accommodation of 16 suites is very well appointed and comfortable. Had nice breakfasts and one dinner. Good food. Young friendly enthusiastic staff. Fast Wi-Fi.. With "Norfolk passport" 10% discount. Byford's is quirky and recommended. Nice expensive tourist shops in Holt. DFC Ireland

There's no doubt that this place is lovely but for the price it sets itself up as being a bit more special than it actually is. The beds are very comfy but the rooms are small. In our room we could hear a lot of noise from other rooms and could clearly hear kitchen staff shouting to each other and... More

Thank you for your honest review. If you ever find yourself our way again perhaps one of our 'Posh' rooms would be more suited to you, our larger rooms. Rooms 16 and 3 in particular are our largest. We also have 3 large rooms at our pub The Kings Head in Holt as they are rooms above the pub the... More

The rooms are interesting, comfortable with good facilities. Breakfasts excellent - kippers outstanding. Service first class too. Dinners were variable - some good, some rather pallid and served on cold plates. I have dined here three nights in the last 6 months and enjoyed one meal. Some of the dining chairs had no padding - so sitting on them for... More

This was our 3rd visit to Byfords and it didn't disappoint. The staff were invariable helpful and charming. The rooms are first class. Although there is a background hum from some equipment somewhere it didn't affect our enjoyment. We will certainly go again.

I booked two rooms for my wife's birthday as she had always wanted to stay at Byfords. I added a bouquet of flowers and a birthday cake for arrival and they were both fantastic. The room we had was big, spacious, enough room for a spare bed for our daughter. They had left a bath toy and a fruit smoothie... More

This was our second visit to Byfords and it didn't disappoint. The room was lovely, well furnished and lots of thoughtful touches like candles in the bathroom to fresh milk and bottled water on the landing. We had bed, breakfast and evening meal. The food was very high quality and pretty reasonably priced - ours was included in the overall... More

Stayed here on business locally and was really very glad I did. My room was large, warm and very well furnished. The en-suite had a huge bath and a wet room together with different shampoo and soap from the ordinary. The B&O TV in the bedroom was fun but a bit too dated for a hotel charging £120 for B&B....
