Thank you for your review of Ivy Hill. As mentioned we are a lovely 3* Hotel that is situated next to the A12 between Chelmsford and Brentwood as published on our website. Please accept my apologies if other guests had disturbed you during your stay. Although this is out of our control, I do hope you brought the matter to a member of our team, who would have tried to help with this situation. I am pleased you were well looked after and I hope the noisy guests do not stop you from returning when you are next in the area and perhaps next time you try our restaurant Bartellas during your stay. Jason Bartella Managing Director
