Meals were of a very good quality and at a reasonable price in Bartellas & again, service was considerate and in good grace. Breakfasts (although not allowed...

We held a birthday celebration lunch for 20+ people at The Ivy Hill. It was planned several months ahead with the help of the hotel management, and we chose each person’s meal in advance from a varied menu that suited all our guests, including children and young people. The wine list is a good one. We supplied table plans and...

Beautiful hotel from the outside which continued inside. Warmly greeted upon arrival. We stayed in room number 8, double room. Great decor and the room was extremely clean and presentable (and hot!). A sparkling bathroom, sink, taps, bath and mirrors. Very comfy bed with big pillows and a thick duvet. Personally one of the best hotels I have stayed in....
