I have had the pleasure, albeit a lonely one of having free accomodation , YES FREE! provided at Byfords during the last 3 months of lockdown. I am a manager of a local nursing home having to travel in from Cambridge and for the last 4 years have been a genuine paying guest when working. With the closure of hotels due to Covid, I was facing a 170 mile round trip to get to work. That is until Byfords stepped in with this incredibly generous gesture. Given a key to come and go. Living off takeaways unfortunately but , without this place to stay I would not have been able to support my staff and residents. My home has remained Covid free, but in the event of an outbreak I would have self isolated at Byfords. I cannot express enough how incredibly grateful I am for this support and I wish you all well with the re-opening and hope to return soon as a paying guest on holiday.

We had a 2 night winter warmer stay in room 9. The room was very clean, warm and comfortable with a huge bed and a lovely bathroom. Upon arrival we had a complimentary coffee and cake in the cafe which was a nice surprise. We had a meal included on the first night, afternoon tea the following day and breakfast included on both mornings. All the food we ate was delicious and very good quality. The staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful. This was our first stay at Byfords but definitely won't be our last.

Spent two nights 9/10 Feb at Byfords. What a great place to spend some time, even with the worst weather raging outside. Welcomed with tea and cake and smiling faces from all the staff. The room we had 16 which was huge with the room and bathroom the same size, wow. The Breakfasts, Lunch and Dinners were great all served by attentive staff. I will return to this super place again and a very big thank you to all the team at Byfords for making our stay so special.

Stayed overnight in Room 7 and although the room is lovely, well furnished and spacious - noise was an issue and if I were to return I wouldn’t wish to stay in that particular room again. The staff on duty and in particular the receptionist were fantastic and couldn’t do enough for us, very friendly, helpful and courteous. Unfortunately we were unable to dine in the restaurant due to sewage problem so unable to comment about the ambience but normal service was resumed at breakfast which was both plentiful and of good quality. As I write this I am still awaiting a response from the manager with regards to the noise issue and sewage problem. Unfortunately both those issues left us feeling tired and deflated after having looked forward to our stay so much and a little short changed in that we were unable to enjoy the ambiance and experience as a whole.
