This time, my fourth stay here, there was a chaise longue in my room - delightful! I could lie there, have a cup of tea with fresh milk from the nearby fridge - and read and not mess up the beautifully-arranged bed. Great space and marvellously large bath. In the room there were lots of architectural and antique furniture details... More

this place oozes history, love the ambience and the setting. The food and the extensive menu were superb. The service has some catching up to do to match the overall experience. Exec Chef Richard runs a great kitchen. Hope to return.

Another lovely weekend spent in Holt and North Norfolk, with Byfords adding its touch of magic. As well as the gorgeous rooms (and bathrooms), the shop and restaurant are lovely. The restaurant was able and willing to cater for my allergies. We have decided that room 2 is our favourite, with views to the front of the building, it is... More

My husband and I returned on Sunday (12/07) from a one night stay at Byfords. It was a wonderfully relaxing experience and I feel I have been away for longer. The rooms are tastefully decorated with real attention to detail from the tea selection, comfy bed, luxurious bath and beautifull Fire place -.we stayed in room 3. The evening meal... More

This well established premises offers everything a family on holiday requires. We have often stayed here and usual use the Post Bed and Breakfast which never fails to please, however this time we thought we would try the self catering flat which sleeps 4 adults and 1 child. We are equally impressed with the self catering, and can relax giving... More

Love Byfords, we've stayed several times and it's always been good. Rooms are just what you imagine for a country retreat, bathrooms always luxurious. Breakfast is ample and tasty. The nicest thing about it though, is that the staff recognise us, even though we only go once or twice a year, and welcome us back.

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

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
