My wife and I stayed in Room 2 for 2 nights for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. It was a truly fantastic weekend. There are 2 things that makes Byfords stand out from everywhere else: 1) The staff: Everyone is extremely friendly, and goes out of their way to make you feel welcome and individual. Nothing is too much trouble. I... More

We stayed a few weeks ago with a couple of friends who rave about it. However, whilst the staff were very good, the room was at the most average. We stayed in Room 2 which was ok but as soon as you opened the window we were overcome by flies. The shower gel etc was also not replenished. Breakfast was... More

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at Byfords. We have shown a local game keeper your review, he has scheduled us in to take a look at Room 2 and see where the flies you mention may have come from. Thank you for informing us. More

Byfords in Holt (Norfolk) describe themselves as a 'Posh B & B' and, if they stuck to being that, they would be very good. The staff are very attentive, friendly and unfailingly polite. However, the modern trend to increase revenue income at all costs has meant that seemingly every square foot of the place is devoted to raising money. There... More

Having stayed here a couple of times and really liked the location and great facilities in the rooms including the biscuits! This time however they were let down at Breakfast by poor staff..... The rooms and front reception are good but the staff in the restaurant let it down. So I think they should keep attention on the detail otherwise... More

I had a wonderful overnight at Byfords a few weeks ago. My boyfriend and I had been to Byfords several times before for meals and to check out the produce in the deli (which we love), but staying over was a new experience and was way beyond our already high expectations. The cleverly chosen decor from quill and pen to... More

I've been to Byfords on many occasions since I have friends living very close by. It's definitely the place to go or either morning coffee, a light lunch or afternoon tea. Last weekend, however, we stayed for a couple of nghts in Byfords and we were truly NOT disappointed. Of the many hotels I've stayed in, Byfords' facilities, decor and... More

Great B & B in Holt, Norfolk UK. Set above their Restaurtant and deli this "Posh" B & B is simply perfection from their stylish and spacious rooms beautifully designed to fit into todays world to their sensitivity to their historical roots of the building. Spacious rooms with really comfortable beds, plus all conveniences that you could wish for. Important... More

Thank you for your kind words what a lovely description of a stay in a Posh B&B bedroom. Rooms 2 and 3 are very similar to Room 1, we recommend these if you are looking to stay with us again and would like to try a different room. Kind regards The Posh B&B Team More

We stopped for one night for our wedding anniversary and during our stay were greeted warmly by every member of staff, enjoyed a complimentary afternoon tea and a very pleasant evening meal in their relaxed, casual restaurant which was popular with both residents and locals.

We recently had a wonderful stay at Byfords.....breakfast was excellent, dinner good, room exceptional and the location extremely convent for shops, restaurants and galleries. We were lucky to also have one of the front bedrooms which overlooked the high street. I thought this might be noisy but it wasn't. Great stay.

1st class room with extra special touches especially the cookie jar on the landing! Much better having fresh milk available for tea making in the room & having bottles of water if needed. Lovely tea & cake provided on arrival also a lovely touch. Can't wait to return to Byfords again, this made our wedding anniversary even better.
