We stayed in the King’s Head accommodation which I think is cheaper than that at Byfords itself We had booked bed and breakfast and stayed in Room 2 which is set up for self-catering and had a kitchen and a very small table. The room was clean, well furnished (though without a safe) and very comfortable. The bedroom had a... 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....

We have visited Byfords for a few years now in which to have a meal. It used to be stylish and an in-place to be seen. We appear to have been given the same choice of dishes on the menu each time. Each time I've had the moroccan dish, in total, three times because the choice of menu so poor.... More

Visited Byfords as a recommendation from a friend. My friend and I decided upon the Eggs Benedict. As it arrived at the table, it looked and smelled delicious! Though my friend had far more hollandaise than myself. Unfortunately, I cut into my egg, expecting a runny yolk, only to find a completely hard yolk. This was the case for both... More

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

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.

We stayed for 2 nights as a birthday treat for me. We stayed in Room 14 which was delightful. Lovely comfy king size bed, exposed beams and luxurious bathroom. Thoughtful touches such as candles in the bathroom and throws on the lovely leather chairs made all the difference. We had eaten here previously, although we had not stayed here before... More

We stayed in Room 1 at Byfords for our wedding anniversary. What a gorgeous room, and a fantastic stay. Everything was absolutely faultless in terms of luxurious comfort, customer service, great quality food, thoughtful additional touches... This was possibly the nicest mini-break we have ever had. Other establishments: Watch and Learn!

We know the Norfolk coast well and wanted a stay of three nights in order to visit close friends. Byfords Posh B&B was recommended by people who had stayed so we asked for one of the best rooms and we were delighted. So much thought has gone into the splendid design of the room and the en suite and the... More
