Which was perfect as mum is disabled. Dinner was very good but would have preferred to have been able to mix menus and to... More

I took my elderly mother to the Ivy House for a long weekend. Many good things to say about this hotel - very friendly, knowledgable and courteous staff, truly lovely grounds from which Oulton Broad itself is easily accessible in less than a minute, clean and spacious rooms, and mum's room, adapted for use by the less mobile, was just...

One Night to enjoy the lovely Norfolk Broads. The location could not be better. The welcome was good and the room was very comfortable. We booked a table in the restaurant and liked the look of the menu. Maybe I'm spoilt living in Cornwall but the crab cakes are definitely something to avoid, very bland and seemed to be made... More

We only stayed one night but would definately have stayed longer. The hotel was in a lovely setting with Oulton Broads to the back, we stayed in one of the rooms set in a courtyard. The room was spacious, clean and very well maintained. Even with a spare bed added to the room for a 9 year old there was... More

We had a light lunch recently with friends in Eve's Bar which was very good with a lovely view of the extremely well kept gardens. The bar is light and airy with good decor and the service was also very good. We were able to enjoy a leisurely time chatting and were not hurried out as is often the case... More

Positives: 1.The grounds are lovely. 2. the rooms are spacious and very clean. I had a suite which was £99 for one night. Bargain. 3. The staff were all really friendly, when I walked through...

We visited ivy farm for a birthday Sunday lunch. The food was very good, and was bought out very promptly. But for us it was the staff who made the whole experience special. Nothing was too much trouble, and service with a smile makes such a difference. We would definitely visit again, thanks to all.
