We stayed in room 2 overlooking the main street, the bed was really comfy, cosy room. But the evening meal was disappointing and the restaurant a bit bright - ate quickly and retired to room! Loved the bathroom with smelly salts and nice toiletries. It was a bit hot though and the underfloor heating in the bathroom not really needed... More

Lovely rooms, cosy and well decorated, fab bathroom and nice welcome tray with homemade biscuits. Good choice of evening meal and breakfast. Staff were helpful, adding extra bed to our room for our daughter.

Byfords in Holt in North Norfolk is a gem place in a gem town. As soon as you arrive, you get the wonderful smells of baking from Byfords bakery, then a friendly and very helpful reception, easy check in and then off to a lovely bedroom (we loved bedroom number 9). In the evening down to the bistro with 4... More

This is a boutique hotel masquerading as a posh B & B!! The rooms are cosy and full of charm with gorgeous bathrooms. A laden tea tray with milk and bottled water in a large fridge on the landing!! Marvellously comfortable bed, with gorgeous linen. The stairs are a bit steep if you have trouble climbing them, but then you... More

I booked four rooms and the apartment for a group of 11 girls attending a hen weekend. The staff could not have been more welcoming, helping me plan every last detail, being incredibly accommodating re the food (chef even cooked some dishes to order) and ensuring that we had a really lovely stay. They even let us book the cellar... More

A nice place, friendly staff, good beds, clean but... starting to seem a little dated, attention to detail in the restaurant has gone. ITs OK saying you have B&O tellies but if they are old and not even widescreen then best not to boast about them. Wifi last year and this was complete rubbish and both times we were given... More

Dear Alec, Thank you for your review. We are so pleased that you liked room 16 but sorry that our tech has let you down on this occasion. We are currently updating our televisions, we agree with you, our old B&O televisions are looking slightly jurassic these days! We have been swapping them since late spring with flat screens, as...

We arrived after a fierce summer night on the coast with high winds, torrential rain and freezing July temperatures. But the receptionist gave us a warm welcome, directed us to the car park and organised an early check in to our room. The room (12) over the car park with a view of the rubbish bins is well appointed with... More

Dear Steve, Thank you for taking time out to review our B&B. Our bin store is at the back of the building in our car park, so unfortunately this is visible from our back rooms, Standard Doubles, 9, 10, 11, 12 and our larger 'Posh' room 14. If you do wish to try us out again, just mention this to... More

I liked this place and the staff were really good and the room was great very thoughtful touches (sweeties, cookies, flowers) etc. But something doesn't sit quite right I think that people's reviews are a bit over the top. You are paying at least £175 for the pleasure and that's fine but I've stayed in better places. Downstairs is really... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the B&B. I am glad that you liked the room and noticed the little extras that go into a posh B&B stay. I have passed on your comments regarding the cafe to the front of house team. Kind regards Rebecka More
