Perfect venue for a perfect wedding

Staff were great and always available to answer any queries we had prior to our big day, manager was amazing and made sure to facilitate to all our needs. Our day ran smoothly, food was yummy and was able to cater to our guests who had dietary requirements also allowing us access to the rooms the night before to be able to decorate was an added bonus! Thank you Ivy

The beautiful day to remember

Our beautiful winter wedding was made extra special by the lovely staff at the Ivy Hill Hotel. From enquiring, all the way through to the big day, they looked after us & made the whole experience stress free! Many of our guests stayed overnight and were also impressed with the cleanliness & brilliant hospitality of the Ivy Hill. I will certainly recommend this venue, and look forward to coming back & celebrating future events at this wonderful venue.

Amazing experience for our Intimate Wedding

We had a small intimate wedding at the Ivy Hill Hotel last year, and even with the covid restrictions, we still had an amazing day! Nothing was too much trouble and the staff went above & beyond to make sure that we had a day to remember. The venue is beautiful and picturesque. Me and my wife are looking forward to visiting for our one year anniversary. Highly recommended venue! Thank you Ivy Hill!

A flawless day

Dear Libby & Team, Charlotte & myself would like to thank you for making our wedding reception so special. We found it lovely how from the beginning, you were prepared to help us make our reception as we wanted it. Your willingness to let us mix up the package menus a little to create what we believed would be the best menu for our guests (and what we liked!) was appreciated. The lemon meringue pie, although this dish is a favourite of ours, it was the best we've ever tasted. Many of the guests have commented on the quality of the food. Please pass on to our team our grateful thanks for their courteousness & assistance to all our guests and ourselves, to create what we can say was a flawless day. Please also pass on the very positive comments to your chef on duty that day and his kitchen team. The meal & buffet was a job very well done and it delighted everyone. Guests that stayed overnight really liked the rooms too and the superb breakfast the next morning. Thank you again for a well run, efficient and pleasing wedding reception at Ivy Hill Hotel.
