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....

Before we set off we knew that Byfords would have to 'go some' to justify the price tag. The room did not disappoint and was genuinely of a very high quality. The room was large, light and airy and the bathroom was superb. The fittings and attention to detail were great. The rooms felt genuine - not themed, not OTT,... More

Dear Dubdog, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay in our Posh B&B. I am so pleased that you liked the room. You are right the Vi-spring mattresses are soft, we use the popular 'medium spring' from their hotel range. Should you come back to North Norfolk I can recommend our sister B&B at 'The Pigs' in...

Had a night to ourselves and Byfords was perfect. Gorgeous food, friendly staff, lovely rooms and very relaxing! Perfect for a night or two away. I probably would not take the kids as I think it would ruin the relaxed atmosphere, but for couples it is perfect.

Pleased to read that you enjoyed the get away Louise. Should you decide to bring the children another time we have a family room in the B&B (Room 17) or a self catering apartment. We hope to welcome you back. Kind regards Rebecka More
