    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 and 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!

  • Felicity Golding

    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 and made the whole experience stress free! Many of our guests stayed overnight and were also impressed with the cleanliness and brilliant hospitality of the Ivy Hill. I will certainly recommend this venue, and look forward to coming back and celebrating future events at this wonderful venue.

  • Lauren

    We had our wedding ceremony and reception here in February and it was perfect. Massive thank you to all the staff and events manager who met with us prior and was on hand all day to make sure we had everything. We had booked out each room in the hotel for friends and family and they all said how lovely it was. I cannot thank you all enough for all your help it really was the best day of our lives.

  • Mike

    This is in a lovely location and is absolutely perfect for any function. We have just had our wedding here and couldn't have asked for a better day. The staff were great and ensured our day went smoothly as expected. The Beautiful Gardens here made some lovely locations for our photos. We would recommend this hotel to everyone.
