My partner and I stayed stayed at the Ivy Dene for a couple of days, the room was spotless, bed clothes spotless and a very cosy bed. The breakfast was superb and the hosts Sue and David were most friendly. Overall we very much enjoyed our stay and would reccomend this guest house to stay in if ever you want a break in Norwich.

It was certainly good value the night I stayed but that's all. The Off Road parking is where ever you can find a space down a side road and it really wasn't all that clean. Despite the price I wouldn't stay again

Our stay at the Ivy Dene proved to be very comfortable and enjoyable. Dave the landlord made us feel incredibly welcome throughout and was extremely attentive. The rooms were pleasant and clean with comfortable beds and breakfast was very fresh and tasty. Ideal location for Norwich city centre. Parking a little tricky but permits provided so perfectly workable. Would certainly return, excellent value for money.

We booked the ivy dene through laterooms.com on 27th March to stay there on 13th of april. I even emailed them to reserve a parking place, received a reply to say parking had been reserved for us. On wednesday they phoned me and cancelled our booking due to being over booked,or was it because we were only staying for the one night !!!!! The owner said he would pay our taxi fares into the city centre,he said he would phone me the following evening to arrange this, DID HE CALL ME,WHAT DO YOU THINK. No more to say about this place,in case I get into trouble.

This great City Central place is not far from both bus and train stations, so access was easily achieved.
My Wife and I found this friendly guest house to be clean and very comfortable. The room which we stayed in was warm and the washing facilities were more than adequate with ample towels and soap substances.
When we arrived which was quite early on our first day, we were allowed to place our cases in the room we were allocated, this was excellent as we were 5 hours early from the designated check in time! This allowed us to enjoy sight seeing without having to endure carrying around our luggage, this in our opinion was a great bonus.
When we went down to breakfast it could not be faulted, in as much as " A warm morning welcome followed by fruit juice, tea or coffee prior to a very filling English Breakfast, or numeous choices of Cereals was to be had.
We found the owners Mr & Mrs David and Susan Prescott more than helpfull, makng our stay very pleasant indeed. When we are planning to visit Norwich again will have no hesitation whatsover in booking again to stay in this perfectly positioned friendly place and we reccomend this place to one and all.

Room Tip: Albeit close to the City centre all rooms are good due being in a quiet neighbourhood. Also the brea...
