Warm friendly welcoming and efficient staff added to a smallish intimate hotel with character and easily accessible location just off the A12 all contributed to a lovely stay. Would recommend the Best Western Ivy Hill.

The room (superior) was large and comfortable with a sofa and tea tray. However, the bathroom was absolutely tiny and I would have expected a fridge in a superior room. It was... More

Another excellent Sunday afternoon tea. Very relaxed what better way to enjoy the sun than with a glass of prosecco and too many cakes! Service as ever (this is my third afternoon tea here) was excellent, very relaxed atmosphere. Very clean tea and coffee excellent. Sandwiches excellent.
