After a 6 hour drive from Scotland for a local wedding, we were welcomed by the friendly landlady, Pat. After a short cheerful chat, she showed us to our room which was clean and comfortable. There was plenty of room for us to put our travel cot for our little monster and with his special dietary requirements, Pat happily obliged...

We stayed two nights and enjoyed our stay. The breakfast was delicious. The proprietor, Pat, cooked exactly what we wanted. Everything was fresh and tasty, the bacon was the best I've ever had. Pat is very chatty but we enjoyed hearing her stories as we ate breakfast. The room was fantastically clean with tea and coffee making facilities and biscuits....

Thank you for this lovely review, having read the previous two you have restored my faith in what I do. Hay-ho! you can't win them all. The delay in responding has been due to me taking a break from business originally intending to retire for good. I have however had such a positive demand for B&B I am about to...

This was the worst place ever. Exhausted from the journey to get to the UK, my husband, myself and our 12 year old daughter were crammed into a small room with very little space to walk, or unpack anything. The room was located directly above an obviously popular street and the noise was horrible. As the weather had just turned...

Machelle M from California. How could one forget this family whose unsuspecting Father in law arranged their stay with us and was so looking forward to his Son’s and Granddaughter’s visit from the US. They arrived and transferred their belongings to the bedroom, this room is not huge neither is it small, we have had numerous comments about how comfortable...

Unfortunately, due to traffic delays, I arrived late for check in (11-00pm) for a 1 night stay, full of apologies for the late arrival. My reception was to say the least, unwelcoming, unfriendly, arrogant, offensive and insulting!!! Over the last 45 years, I have travelled the world and stayed in all types of accommodation ranging from first class to lowly...

Dorking Lynne : reference the photo!, this person was very much a man but no gentleman. The reservation was made through Booking.com who invite reviews from people who book with them, interesting that it came through TripAdvisor. Our website and Booking.com booking confirmations did state the final checking in time was 10pm and Breakfasts at the weekends were from 8am...

We stayed for 3 nights, had the double room, which was nice, although you can hear the main road in both your bedroom and whilst having breakfast downstairs. Host was very accommodating, driving to messingham to pick up a bunch of flowers and generally being helpful with the local area. Location good, highly recommend eating in 'the swan' in particular...

this is one of the friendliest places I have stayed in, and I have travelled the length & breadth of the country staying in many places from top hotels to B&B's. I will also say that this is amongst the cleanest and maybe the cleanest of them all. the attention to detail is super and breakfast not to be missed!...

Very clean and quiet B & B -the single room I booked is small but everything needed is to hand and there was a nice view of the tidy back garden. I had to leave very early but I was given coffee fresh orange and toast as I could not wait for the 7am breakfast.

The Ivy Lodge is like home away from home, the rooms were clean, we had everything we needed and were even able to eat our takeaway in the dinning room where the owners brought plates, knives and forks and condiments, perfect! Thank you for the effort that went into making this an enjoyable stay.

Cosy and comfortable B&B hotel with most welcoming and friendly hosts. Excellent breakfast. Easy to find and well signed. I was made to feel most welcome. I did have the small room but it was as I say clean cosy and comfortable, and that came as no surprise as it was described to me when I booked it.. Very good...
