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

Stayed here for one night on business. For a three star hotel this place, is a welcome overachiever, in B and B land of Lowestoft. 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.

We spent 2 nights at the beginning of August. We were impressed by the standard of fittings in the hotel and the dining room appeared to be a beautifully converted barn complete with rafters. Unfortunately dinner on on the Friday night was a big disappointment. I had overcooked fish accompanied by even more overcooked vegetables and lumpy potatoes, my daughter's... More

We arrived to a wonderful flower bedecked car park. Our room was large and faced out on to the garden. We could walk into Oulton Broad and also walked along the edge of the broad from the hotel. The gardens are a delight with room for drinks and relaxation. We had drinks in Eve's Barn which is a delightful oak... More

Love it here. Perfect venue on a Summer's evening, lovely grounds. Food excellent and staff friendly and polite. Would recommend you try it. Refurbishment has been done to a high standard. We have been here several times and have always had excellent food and service.

The room, we stayed in No 12 but I believe all rooms are the same, they have recently had a major upgrade, the room was massive with a very comfy king size bed. The room was spotlessly clean with plenty of toiletries, a good selection... More

The main rationale for choosing the hotel was its location and the disability room for my sister. Both our rooms were large and very well furnished with particulary big bathrooms. Rooms could do with being a bit better soundproofing as a TV somewhere kept me awake from 6am. Food, both breakfast and the evening meal, was excellent and the service... More

Room was spacious and bathroom was also a good size, both were very clean (always a bonus). I have stayed in quite a lot of hotels recently and I have to say the bed at Ivy House was quite possibly the most comfortable I have slept in for a very long time. The cooked breakfast was simple and very tasty.... More

Having seen the recent press announcements covering the new ownership and mod's to the Ivy House and given that we are always looking at somewhere "new" for dinner we booked for dinner last Saturday. We were very impressed as the location, gardens, staff and food were all excellent, the only downside being the price of the meal which was slightly... More
