Super hotel with fabulous restaurant with great food for both dinner and breakfast, friendly service, relaxed atmosphere. Hard to find, but lovely location, can walk to the broad, plenty of parking. Excellent disabled rooms suitable for elderlies. You can even bring your dog.

Lovely hotel with impressive barn dining room tucked away on the edge of Oulton Broad. Stayed two nights (very good deal) (wish it could have been longer) booked at very short notice (two Hours) Arrived very late but staff very helpful and welcoming, Very comfortable room although radiator needed bleeding and with snow outside room was a little cold, luckily had rad key on my key ring and was soon very comfortable. Excellent breakfast, Lovely grounds and surroundings would definately recommend and would like to return sometime in future

We booked this hotel at short notice to join our Son who was staying with his family at a nearby holiday park.

From the initial contact the service was helpful and polite.

The receptionist recommended a family room that has one double and two twin beds. This was perfect for us with one of our grand children.

The room was large and clean although the furniture and decoy is a bit dated.

We returned from our days out on both evenings with all of the family to eat at the hotel. The choice of food was good and well prepared. Our children loved the " chocolate burgers "
The staff were very helpful in adapting the menu to our children requests.

Car parking is plentiful and secure.

The garden are very large and well kept and very close to the Broads.

The new owners have extensive plans to update the hotel in the coming year and this will improve what is already a good place to stay.

I would not hesitate on returning to this little gem.

We had our wedding at the hotel and had most of the guest stayed for the weekend
The service from the staff from morning to night was first class. Will the wedding coordinator was the key to the fine running of our event and his guidance with all the staff was first class. The food is of five star + and fantastic value for money.
We both have been to this hotel on many occasions and would highly recommend it for a romantic break or over night stay. Ivy house has just been taken over and on talking to the new owners on our stay there. They are intending to improve the hotel up to even higher standard.
I wish the new owners all the best in there venture and we look forward to coming back in the not distant future.

To day I visited Ivy House country hotel for afternoon tea. The hotel has recently been taken over and is under new management. We had a lovely tea sitting in the summer house surrounded by beautiful grounds on the edge of Oulton Broad. I was very disappointed when I visited the hotel before it was taken over but the attention to detail under the new management could not be faulted. We were met by one of the new partners who spent a great deal of time explaining all the changes that are afoot. - conservatory, refurbishment of guest rooms, a new bar, new menus, wooden garden furniture placed all over the grounds.etc.The Hotel will certainly raise the game in Lowestoft. I personally can not wait to see all the planned improvements, it will I am sure prove to be a real asset to this area. Thankyou Ivy House and Keith for a very enjoyable afternoon - we will certainly be back and will recommend you to our friends and colleagues.
