This is a great place to hold a business event. The Centre is nestled in a great setting, beautifully landscaped. The rooms are very clean and very up to date. There are some rooms with no elevator access so ensure you do not get one of these if you do not a long walk back to your room. The outside patio area with firepit is a great place to socialize and network.

Scenic, peaceful location. Great food and service, very accommodating staff. Meeting room facilities are a bit small, but adequate. Rooms are small, smell musty and could use a renovation. The single elevator only goes up to the 4th floor; guests must carry their luggage and walk up stairs to the 5th and 6th floors.

We booked 2 rooms for 5 people and were told that a roll-in bed can be used for the 3rd person. The bed was too short for 6" tall person, room was very cramped. In fact the other room was longer by 1 foot 15' vs 14 ', but the shorter room was assigned to the party of 3. We experienced problem with the drainage in the bathtub, hence taking shower was a bit challenging since the water was draining slower than the water coming from the shower head.

I felt that the elevators could be cleaner, as well as the flooring just outside the elevator on the main floor.

Other than that, we loved the place, and loved our stay there. Breakfast was fabulous, served in true London style.

My best friend was getting married. They had reserved a bloc of 20 rooms. I booked through those 20 rooms 6 months ago at least and I don't understand how it took 45 min to check in and 50 to check out. Also I don't understand why everyone was spread out every where in the hotel and not asked if there would be accessibility issues since no elevators reaches 5-6 level! One had a baby and couldn't even take her stroller and had to walk 15 min to get to her room carrier all her stuff and the bucket... Read more

I went to Ivey spencer through a wedding party. I felt the rooms were too old and small. There was no wifi access and the hotel was more or less aggrevating to manoeuvre. We were a large group yet we couldn't be in a close proximity and you put the future bride and grooms across the hall from each other

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at ivey Spencer. Rooms were tidy if a little small - would recommend against large luggage. Entire hotel is also not accessible to individuals with disabilities. You would have to specifically request a room with elevator access, additional space etc. That's the trade off though for the historic feel of the building. Grounds are beautiful.
