We were guests at a wedding which was an amazing day. The food and staff we great! At some point I lost my bracelet and didn't realise till the following day. After calling the hotel to see if it had been handed in, they called me back shortly after saying that there was no sign of it but took my...

We found that the comfort and facilities were excellent and the staff very friendly and welcoming - much better than the norm. The breakfasts were well cooked. Our deal included dinner on the first night which was from a special menu. My only criticism here would be that most of this contained cheese, cream or yogurt and, being allergic I...

My wife and I stayed after a function, not something we’d normally do, one of us would abstain from drinking and drive home as it’s less than an hour away, however, this time we thought we’d treat ourselves and what a good idea it was. The room was well furnished and of a great size, certainly big enough for us...

Great stay as usual. Just of the A12 so handy for getting into London or heading to heybridge where my offices are. Always clean and always friendly staff. Sometimes a bit pricey compared to other best westerns

We booked to accommodate a visit to family, without wanting to stay on their doorstep. A very cosy and comfortable hotel that made you feel welcome as soon as you arrived. It accommodates multiple meeting rooms so can be quite busy on weekends with birthdays, weddings etc not to mention meeting groups during mornings and afternoons. Therefore weekends can be...

My husband Rob and I chose The Ivy Hill Hotel to hold our wedding. We booked it over a year ago and the whole process and professionalism of all staff leading up to the day itself was faultless. The day itself was amazing. We had the best day as did all our guests. We wanted to say a huge thank...

Easy to locate directly on slip road from A12, signed on A12 when travelling East. Room and furnishings good, staff friendly and happy, which always helps! Restaurant modern but cosy, food good and reasonably priced. Nice pre-dinner lounge/bar. Breakfast served in dedicated room, excellent service with good food choice. We would recommend this hotel as welcoming, comfortable, and to a...

My wife and I celebrated our Ruby wedding, with a party for 100 people in the Margaretting Suite at The Ivy Hill Hotel. The whole event went faultlessly and I cannot thank the staff enough for their friendliness, professionalism and first class service we were given.

“We had a standard room. As we stayed on one of their special 2 night deals we were not expecting the room to be as good as it was.”
