“Ivey's Best”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

For a last me choice it was the right one. Great option if you have business other the university. Service was great. Rooms very comfortable. Quiet and very peaceful settings. Also checked out the meeting and conference part. Very impressed.

For my purposes at UWO, the location was ideal, which is why I chose this hotel. The building itself is beautiful and a lot of the historical value has been maintained and the grounds are well-kept. The room was in pretty good condition, while it some of the furniture was a bit worn, the bathroom seemed to have been updated recently. Comfy bed, good AC system. The breakfast buffet in the morning was to die for.

The only real issue I could have had was the limited access to dining - the hotel dining room closes at 7 or 8 p.m. depending on the night, which is when I'm used to eating dinner. As the hotel is not central to downtown, this means a drive to track down other food. That was my only big issue.

This hotel was a great find! It was extremely easy to get to and was very beautiful. The coffee/tea stations were a nice touch. The bedroom and bathroom were both clean and well-appointed and we had a great night sleep. We will return to this hotel!

As the name implies this is not your typical urban hotel. This is essentially a very nice modern hotel with amenities attached to a Victorian Mansion, some of which has been updated and used for holding courses.

The best part is that the facility/hotel is located on it is a huge tract of beautiful secluded land in the heart of London.

The only way we ended up here was because my daughter had heard of it.....we never would have looked twice with the name.

Beautiful secluded grounds, great dining and unbelievable price for such a nice hotel facility.

Stayed 3 days and quite enjoyed it.

My family had a very easy and pleasant stay at Ivey. The staff was very helpful. It was a little out of our way to get there, but the value was certainly worth it. The night attendant even helped me out with canadian change, because our american credit cards are subpar. :)

Beautiful hotel, very clean and very Very friendly staff. No pool, but great outdoor space. There was a large wedding going on but they upgraded our room to be on the far side just in case there was noise
