“Rip off hotel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2010

Same as the previous reviewer, I arrived at the hotel only to be told that they wanted another £50 onto the booking cost.New owners blah, blah.not accepting bookings from the previous owner etc. Obviously the new owners are not that keen on getting business or getting repeat business (this was going to be my 4th stay in a couple of years).
Needless to say I refused to pay the extra and found an alternative hotel.
I will not be going back to this rip off hotel and I would advise anyone planning to stay here to keep phoning in case they have decided that they want to take more money off you.

The new owner of the ivy rooms cancelled previous bookings to make more money from new customers,we booked back in Dec.through Booking.Com along with a booking for March for 4 guests.When we stayed in March we were informed the Hotel was now under new management but our booking would be honored at the price quoted but would cost more in future, this was fine but this week we received an email from booking .com to tell us this was no longer the case, the owner said we would have to pay £35 more, even after i offered to pay between the 2 prices.
Is this the way forward for the new management team fleecing the customers so watch out if you are considering spending cash at the ivy rooms be warned Scrooge is back in town.
