"Website states mineral water available in executive room, which was not the case and reception confirmed had to be purchased from bar. No shelve in shower for shampoo or gel. Bathroom decoration was a bit tired. The restaurant food and service were excellent and the grounds are nice."

Overview

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 and have a picnic at one of the many picnic tables within the grounds.

For fine dining, head to the Crooked Barn Restaurant, which holds an 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.

Stayed a couple of nights in a standard courtyard room. It was comfortable room, with a big bathroom, but did overlook the courtyard rather than the gardens. The gardens are lovely, with lots of bird life, even in February, and lead directly on to the path by Oulton Broad. Dinner in the Crooked Barn was great and breakfast in the sun room good too.
