Why We Love This Hotel

  • The hotel sits in 21 acres of gardens, lawns, ponds and marshes within the Broads National Park
  • The 2-AA-Rosette Crooked Barn Restaurant is in a converted 16th-century thatched barn on the banks of Oulton Broad
  • Popular seaside towns Southwold and Great Yarmouth are less than 30 minutes' drive away


Ivy House Country Hotel is close to the coastal town of Lowestoft, and sits on the banks of Oulton Broad. Its 21 acres of grounds include gardens, lawns, ponds, marshes and a thatched barn.

The hotel is in the Broads National Park, and you can stroll into the town of Oulton Broad directly from the hotel's gardens. The park is full of scenic waterways and wildlife, and has plenty of walking and cycling routes, or you can travel through it by boat and moor up to explore the nearby villages and waterside pubs.

The hotel is a 10-minute drive from Lowestoft's promenade, and beyond that the sandy beaches south of the town offer plenty of options for coastal walks. Local attractions Africa Alive!, Pleasurewood Hills and the seaside town of Southwold are within 25 minutes' drive. The coastal resort of Great Yarmouth and the Suffolk Coast National Nature Reserve are less than 30 minutes' drive away.

Eve's Bar & Lounge has panoramic views over the gardens, ponds and over to the Broads. It's a great spot for a cream tea, a pre-dinner drink or a bar snack. You can also order a hamper to enjoy at one of the many picnic tables within the grounds.

For fine dining, head to the Crooked Barn Restaurant, which holds two AA Rosettes. Head chef Keith Parton serves a menu of local and seasonal ingredients in the characterful 16th-century barn. 

All guests get homemade biscuits on arrival.

Other Comments
The offer was great value for money, however if I was to go back and pay full price I think my expectations would be higher eg, the staff were very nice and friendly but, some feedback 1). Being told that last dinner orders was 8 pm due to staff wanting to leave on time to enjoy their bank holiday is not something I would expect a high end establishment to mention... this did not impact our experience but i think put the focus on the staff rather than the guest. 2). Restaurant prices are high end and the food itself was up to expectations ( though bread and even possibly an amuse Bouche would have added to it) but the service was ok rather than excellent and the attention from the staff mostly disappeared toward the end of the evening as they were clearing up and setting up for the next day. We even had a blast of music during dessert which made me think they were trying to hurry us along. Again if you charge these prices then the service needs to match. Breakfast was good, though the yoghurt had run out by 9.15 am when breakfast was between 8.30 -10 am which is unexpected. I really did like the place and location and would really like to recommend this to a relative for wedding but hope the service meets expectations.

On arrival we were made very welcome and also our little dog. Everything one could want was in the room even a blanket water bowl and biscuits for the dog.
Other Comments
We had the option of eating in the restaurant but also a table was reserved in the bar restaurant if we wished to bring the dog in. Everything was superb.

The room was lovely, the food was great but there was no ambience or atmosphere and apart from one evening waitress who was brilliant, the young staff appeared to have had no training whatsoever
