We booked the family room (number 17) for our daughter's Leavers' Ball event this weekend and I am sitting in the room right now writing this review, resting on the king size bed, having just had complimentary coffee and cake. We have been using the restaurant for years most weeks, so we know exactly what breakfast and any other meals... More

Another trip to Norfolk & another excellent stay at Byfords. Great friendly & welcoming staff. Superb bedlinen, towels & monster size comfy bed. Lovely dinner & best breakfast in Norfolk I reckon. I am a regular at this small groups various Inns & wish their formula was more widespread. Wifi good, character rooms & surprisingly quiet, although Holt is 'quiet'.... More

We stayed at Byfords as a last holiday before the birth of our son. Had a very pleasant stay - charming staff, nice rooms in generally very good condition. The only criticism we had was a mattress that was starting to show its age a bit as it was rather soft and a little unsupportive - giving my wife and... More

Byford's describe themseleves as offering posh B&B. And this is an accurate description. First of all the positives- wonderful, helpful staff- excellent breakfasts- fabulous bathroom (we were in room 7, but I think others were similar)- excellent food in the evening (reviewed pub across the road- Byford's was so much better)- and lots of little touches (the free tea and...

Recently stayed here for two nights with my partner. We were greeted with complimentary cake and coffee on arrival which was a lovely thought and put a smile on my face. The B&B is lovely with a bakers at the front full of yummy food - cake, croissants, pasties!! We stayed in room 12 which is classed as a 'double'... More

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.
