Having made a bit of a geography error we needed to find somewhere to seat 7 at short notice on a Sunday afternoon. Normally this is a nightmare, however a local recommended Byfords and they were not wrong. You enter through the delicatessen part of the shop front, you can't book so queue at a counter to be seated. We... More

Lovely old building offering smart "standard" rooms and deluxe "posh" ones. We stayed in a standard room (12) which had lots of space but overlooked the rear car park. The en suite was small and we found the shower temperature impossible to regulate, but had lots of instantaneous hot water and a good sized bath. Fresh lilies perfumed the bathroom.... More

We always make it to Holt at least once a year for some pre-Christmas shopping, lunch then on to 'Thursford Spectacular' which was brilliant again this year. Lovely choice of shops which have that something different for a present. Lunch is always at Byfords where we know we will get a good meal at a reasonable price. This year was... More

Lovely B&B rooms above Byfords restaurant and bakery/deli. Can't recommend highly enough. Have stayed in both room 1 and room 2. Well appointed and comfortable. Breakfast very good and also had evening meals here too. Food is okay but, while not quite to the level that the property deserves, don't let that put you off. Wonderful Holcombe beach and seal...

On arrival we received a very warm welcome. The receptionist showed us to our room which was so warm and cosy with lamps on, classical music playing, and fresh lilies in the bathroom. The scrumptious shortbread was a very lovely touch and the secret supply of toffees along with candles in the bathroom was just so special. The bed was... More

When we visit Holt we invariably have lunch at Byfords. It is not the cheapest place but you know you will get quality. We had soup and half a sandwich and both were good. Service is excellent as well. As ever on our visits we bought flapjacks as we think they are the best you can get.

We booked for one night midweek - we appreciated the warm welcome and personal touches in the room. Lovely toiletries. Comfy bed. Dinner service was not the best sadly but breakfast was very nice. Holt is a lovely town and Byfords at its heart.

My friend and I checked into the Posh BnB for a single Saturday night. Our room was on the ground floor and was a perfect room for a short break, with large, comfortable bed; tea and coffee making facilitates including (heaven) a mini bottle of fresh milk for your beverage, as well as a reasonable selection of fruit and herbal...

Room had huge bed, bluetooth speakers in bathroom/room, sky TV, tea making facilities, huge bath and shower room.

Walked in on a Monday evening to be seated within a few minutes. Menus explained and the complimentary bread, olives, nuts and off we went. So we choose small mussels and 6 items off the grazing menu. The drinks took a while to come, I don't think the waiter was familiar with wines! Good arrived and just fitted on the... More
