Fine but can be noisy in wrong room and no Air Con.

10/09/2018 paulcA777QS, West Horsley, United Kingdom

Hotel is very popular as we had to pay upfront in the Spring for a late summer stay. We paid more for a deluxe room but sadly it was the nearest to the A12. Cheaper rooms are round the back but frankl... more

Thank you for your review. I am pleased you had a wonderful time staying overnight at our hotel. We are only a 3* hotel and do not claim to have air con, but as you mentioned we do provide fans in all of our rooms during the warmer seasons. Thank you for awarding us with 4 stars, I hope when you are next in the area you stay with us again. Jason Bartella Managing Director

Fantastic party venue!

Thank you for the review. It is wonderful you all had a fantastic time and the birthday boy celebrated with his friends on the bouncy castle and inflatables. The room looked amazing, which I am pleased you also agree. For those that don't know, the room hire for a child's birthday party is fantastic at only £350 and freshly produced children's buffet from £11 each, makes the Ivy Hill a wonderful venue to host birthday celebrations. We hope to see you again soon, perhaps for a family celebration at Christmas. Jason Bartella Managing Director

Thank you for your reply. I am pleased you had a wonderful time staying overnight with us and found the food and service from the team to be excellent. Out bedroom confirmation letters and emails state our checking in time of 3pm and if required we can offer an early check in from 12noon, at a charge of £25.00. For guests who choose not to pay the charge, we offer an alternative which is to pre-register their bedroom and we offer the service of leaving your luggage with us for free. I hope when you are next in the area, you come and stay with us again. Jason Bartella Managing Director

Decent hotel

25/08/2018 Aberjoodles, Aberystwyth, United Kingdom

This is a decent hotel which despite the proximity to the A12 was very quiet. Rooms are fairly well kitted out and are being upgraded. Ate in the restaurant, both dinner and breakfast very good. Wine ... more

Thank you for your review. I am pleased you all had a wonderful time staying overnight at our hotel. When requests are made such as interconnecting rooms, we do our upmost to enable you to have these facilities. We are only a 3* hotel, so as you mentioned we do not claim to have air con, but I am pleased you were comfortable with the fan that are provided in all of our bedrooms. Thank you for bringing to my attention of the maintenance issue, which I shall pass on to the team. We hope you return again soon, were you could perhaps also dine in our restaurant Bartellas for dinner. Jason Bartella Managing Director
