Our wedding at Ivey Spencer was beautiful!

Our wedding at Ivey Spencer was beautiful! The food was amazing and it has the most gorgeous places to take photos. 

You get the beautiful old Willow Room for the bride to get ready in. Then for cocktail hour you get the patio and the garden room. For dinner you have the dining hall, then afterwards for dancing you dance in the garden room and still have the patio. You also basically have your own washrooms in the hall. Lots of space and no need for shuffling things around throughout the night. 

Wedding Bliss

Our daughter celebrated her wedding ceremony and reception at Ivey. It was amazing. The grounds were absolutely beautiful for an outdoor ceremony and pictures. The options for guests to be in the lounge, dining room, Garden Room, or patio was the highlight for many of our guests who couldn't stop telling us that this was one of the best weddings they had attended. The food was just incredible, from the appetizers to the main dinner to the gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches and candy bar for late night. The staff definitely made the day even more memorable. They went above and beyond to make sure the day ran smoothly, especially the event coordinator Caitlin Price. She was our angel that day. Every staff member, though, was professional, friendly, and helpful. The guest rooms were comfortable, clean, and very inviting. I can't say enough about how much I appreciate them. Weddings can be stressful but the staff at Ivey were there at every turn to make this event so much easier to plan and implement.
I would recommend it in a heartbeat!

Excellent Service All Around

Over The Top Service

"This hotel is a real gem. In the heart of North London. You are in the city just minutes from everything but you feel like you are at a country retreat. Surrounded by hundred year old trees and acres of well maintained grounds. You don't hear the squeal of fire trucks or emergency vehicles. You have both the old century building blended with the new buildings. The staff are accommodating and friendly. This will be our go to hotel for London."

Lovely Hotel Option In North London

"While the Centre is close to Masonville Mall and hospitals in north London, it’s well off the road in a park- like setting with beautiful grounds to enjoy a walk or picnic. The pineapple rosemary water and apples in the lobby were a nice touch, and room was well decorated and cozy. Staff were friendly and helpful and there were lounges and buffet meals offered throughout. Lovely decor!"
