The young man that served us our meals in the Hotel was very attentive and an excellent member of the staff. He made the meal times a real pleasure although rushed off his feet he maintained what has to be the very best service possible. Room 5 was very noisy from plumbing in the adjoining rooms so possibly better to... More

We went to the restaurant for a (late) Sunday lunch - 3 of the 4 staff that served us were excellent but the 4th was rather off-putting in his attitude. The food was well presented but, to our taste, was rather lacking in flavour / seasoning

Loved the setting of the Ivy - a delightful arrangement of lawns, ponds and no traffic noise. Lovely spacious bedroom, and breakfast was excellent. Particulary liked the fact that a footpath alongside Oulton Broad was at the foot of the garden. Would go again.

Excellent country feel hotel, converted barns and outbuildings. Excellent for an independent hotel. Architecture and country surroundings superb. Low beams. Room are excellent, chalet style. Excellent furnishings, staff great except sometimes reception. Breakfast is of excellent quality with wide choice. Evening meals also excellent cooked by award winning chef.

A very nice place to stay whatever your purpose. Lovely gardens to sit in on a sunny afternoon and very close to Orton Broad, which is walking distance via a path along the canal. All the rooms are spread out throughout the grounds. A word of warning though. It is possible that there could be a party right on your... More

It's been a few years since we were able to go back to The Ivy House and we were really looking forward to seeing all the changes and improvements. We weren't disappointed! So nice to meet members of staff who remembered us and to enjoy the truly wonderful food once more. The grounds were looking as good as ever and... More

Our family stayed very recently at the Ivy House Country Hotel and from the moment we arrived we were greeted with smiles and made to feel very welcome. With two young children we had a family room that was very spacious, exceptionally clean and very accessible; plus free WiFi throughout the hotel. We dined there for the first night and... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay recently with our two dogs. Always great to find clean, dog-friendly hotels. Very friendly staff, lovely food and wine and the accommodation was very comfortable. We would definitely visit again.

After 7 hours of a long journey from Newcastle, we did arrive into this very nice hotel in Lowestoft. The place is big and on the country side, the staff is super friendly and the bar has fantastic food!
