Stayed here for one night, found the rooms were large and well decorated. The reception area is lovely, especially like the 3D Fire, nice touch. Breakfast was lovely, although only open from 8-10am on a Sunday which was disappointing. Made it down in time but found that the self service drinks were deliberately not being refilled, even with 45 minutes... More

I can only apologise if you found my attitude on Saturday to be less than courteous. I believe you are the gentleman who had a problem with a previously booked taxi and I did explain, quite correctly, that the taxi firm is an entirely different company to ourselves and we had no control over the taxi's arrival. I did also... More

We stayed the weekend for a family function and had a ball. Lovely comfortable room and the hotel looks well decorated and maintained. Food was tasty and there was lots of it. Great staff and service.

I stayed here last week. Following the worst week I've ever had, staying in the Stormont hotel, I decided to move to the Ivanhoe Inn & Hotel. I was staying in the area for business and was very stressed. Staying here was a delight. Receptionist was very helpful and the hotel was a great hide away from the pressures of... More

Ate here with a family group of 10. First thing i have to note is how much the renovations have transformed the place, really cool and modern. The restaurant was totally full but the service we got was first class and very attentive even though it was so busy and there were so many of us. The menu had a... More

I had the pleasure of attending a big family event in the Ivanhoe last week and it was superb. As an expat I hadnt been there since the late 1980s and couldnt believe how much it had changed! Genuinely transformed from what I remembered! Modern, efficient and a warm welcome on the way in via reception. We were looked after... More

Attended a birthday party here. Food delicious and generous portions, served in the room. Deserts worth going for! Paula was very welcoming to all the many guests. New decor is bright, clean & modern but still relaxing. Obviously a lot of thought has gone into it.

So disappointed, I have been going to the Ivanhoe since I was a child, I love the new decor but it's lacking in experienced staff and service. The staff are very disinterested and the service is really slow, I had went for lunch I had to ask someone to take our order after waiting after half an hour, the food... More

Me and my partner attended a party in The Ivanhoe so we decided to make the most of it and stay the night. On arrival we were greeted by a lovely receptionist. We requested a quiet room (light sleepers) and she was only too happy to help. The rooms are quite big but cosy! We decided to have dinner in... More

Hot buffet was excellent: Beef Goulash, Chicken a la Creme, salads and vegetarian options all a great hit. Staff very friendly and efficient. Went back for Sunday Lunch the next day and again great food in very pleasant surroundings served by fantastic staff.
