I didn't realize that the Ivey Spencer Leadership Centre functioned as a regular hotel and was pleasantly surprised. Finely apportioned rooms with updated bathrooms in an traditional style building similar to those on the Western University campus. Gorgeous grounds. Can;t think of a better place to stay in the north of London.

I was so looking forward to staying again at this facility and wasn't disappointed. The staff are amazing (thanks Cliff and Ellen), the amenities exceptional and the atmosphere is very restful and calming. Love the free 24 hour Starbucks coffee stations - a huge treat for a weary traveller. We stayed for three terrific nights and look forward to returning... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Ivey while she toured Western, which is a 15 minute walk from this very attractive well appointed conference centre. The room was lovely. the service prompt, and the breakfast buffet massive, and healthy... the gym area is one of the best I've seen, with good quality cardio machines, free weights and pilates/yoga equipment....

Comfortable room. Spacious surroundings. Nice setting. Convenient to University Hospital and UWO. Great buffet breakfast. This is a relaxing spot to stay if you are visiting anything in North London. Classic. I had a little trouble getting the WiFi to work in my room consistently. I liked that I could open my window for some fresh air.

We stayed earlier this week at the Ivey Spence leadership centre and are definitely coming back. We got a very comfortable room on the ground floor with a queen bed and a cot added for our child. There was a big desk which is useful for business travellers I guess. We liked the setting of the hotel/centre ( the name... More

Nice lodgings attached to the University of Western Ontario business school. Nice location, quiet, well appointed, and clean. A bit institutional, but a good value. Skip the over-priced breakfast buffet. Moldy fruit, no freshly cooked options. Indifferent wait staff.
