What a fabulous place although a little expensive if you don't use a break deal. We stayed in room 6 with very low beams. Lots of character but you needed to concentrate! The staff were superb and so friendly. I don't readily recollect when we have ever had such a warm welcome. We will definitely stay again

We have stopped and eaten at Byfords Cafe many times and said we would come back for an overnight stay - we weren’t disappointed. On arrival the Receptionist was friendly, helpful and informative. Our room was very nice - it was at the back of the building overlooking the small residents car park. It had a nice feel to it, very clean, comfortable double bed and two leather chairs, en-suite bathroom with both bath and shower, and modern TV with Sky. We didn’t need an excuse to eat in the cafe but the complimentary tea and cake offer was very welcome. The staff at breakfast were very friendly and attentive. The choices for breakfast were very good we went for the full English breakfast cooked to order and it didn’t disappoint. On departure the Receptionist was very friendly and helpful and we couldn’t resist buying products from the well stocked deli. We will definitely be back

I've been here many times before, and it used to be great. However last the 2/3 times it's gone downhill. Today they messed my order of half a pizza and salad. The manager then apologised saying she had put the order through wrong, before critising the kitchen staff saying they were young and inexperienced, which came across as unprofessional. She also added that they had forgot the onion chutney and pine nuts and that she would get that and rectify the order, which she never did and I couldn't be bothered to ask again as there were numerous other customers simulataneously complaining over thier orders. My partner had the fish finger wrap, which had overcooked / burnt fish fingers which were rubbery and not very nice. Byfords was our go to in Holt but sadly we have agreed that following two bad experience in a row that we will no longer eat at Byfords.

We really enjoyed our stay, wish we could’ve stayed longer. We weren’t lucky enough to nab a space in the hotel car park (there are about 8) but there is a car park nearby which was £7 for 24hrs which is reasonable. Our room was at the back, so quite quiet, the bed is very comfortable and although the room is a bit small, it’s very well appointed. Fresh flowers in the bathroom is a nice touch, as is the voucher for a cake and a cuppa. There isn’t a bar as such but we were able to get drinks brought to the room. Breakfast was lovely and although there isn’t a buffet because of covid regs., anything from the menu was brought to the table with a smile. The staff is perhaps the best thing about the place, absolutely everyone we encountered was friendly, personable and happy which was so nice to see and experience.

Dreadful service for brunch Seems to operate for sake of its staff who are uninterested and untrained Three attempts to get a menu , interminable wait for food . If they are understaffed then they should let people know - clearly no management oversight taking place Disappointingly we had travelled some distance to go to Byfords following a great visit a few years ago There do look to be other places to eat in Holt that are in a quieter spot and hopefully better run
