We stayed at Ivy Hotel last week for 3 days. It was brilliant. Somehow we got the honeymoon suite which was beautiful with a view to Oulton Broad. The room was very clean. The dining room is lovely with very friendly and efficient staff. We particularly enjoyed the interaction with Emma and Angie but they were all great. The food was very good. It was great to be able to walk onto Oulton Broad from the hotel. The covid 19 security made us feel safe.

The Ivy Hotel is located in a fabulous location in relation to the Oulton Broads, with an easy walk to get to the water. We had a Courtyard Room Room 8 which was a little dark but comfortable. Was surprised to see the old style trouser press and discoloured cream wall mounted hair dryer, but in working condition. Bed very comfortable. The evening meal was of a high standard as was the breakfast. Wine a little pricey by the glass. Great wedding venue, as restaurant area fully beamed with pretty twinkling lights.

Excellent hotel with rooms arranged in a selection of former farm buildings and new builds, some with views out to the water. Comfortable beds and everything spotless. Really friendly and helpful staff with special mention to Leeya.
Dinner and breakfasts of high quality served in the spectacular crooked barn restaurant. Countryside walks on paths at both the front and rear of the property means that you could spend a couple of days here without using the car. We WILL be back.

Room tip: A suite with a view is top choice

We purchased a voucher through travel zoo which included a generous allowance for a meal on the first night. We had a lovely spacious room which was very comfortable. The meal on the first night was so good we ate there every night. (Fillet steak was awesome) There's a lovely bar area for pre dinner drinks and the restaurant is really nice and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good with enough choice. The hotel is very covid friendly without detracting from the enjoyment of it. Its set in nice grounds and you can walk to Oulton broads, but its also a good base to explore the area. The town of Southwold was a great recommendation from a member of staff and is worth a visit. They had quite a few guests in the hotel and this added to the atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.

We had a couple of nights stay.

Good room upstairs in the farmhouse, comfy bed and plenty of room.

The hotel takes its COVID security very seriously, ensuring that temperatures are taken, masks are used where required and hand sanitisers are readily available.

The restaurant was spacious and socially-distanced seating arrangements are in place. Food was good - the full English breakfast was excellent.

Worth a mention was Emma the waitress, sommelière and all-round hard worker. ALWAYS happy, always helpful, she's a credit to the place.

We'll be back.
