We had been walking the SW coast path and Ivanhoe was AN ABSOULUTE TREAT at the end of our stay in Cornwall. We had a lovely spacious room with a very nice ensuite bathroom and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The breakfast was absolutely gorgeous, since we were staying for four nights, I could try all of the... More

We had a Lovely stay at the Ivanhoe, we had the Family room for 4 nights, the food very good (Excellent), especially the Pancakes. When we got there, we was told it was Falmouth week, so it made it a very good 4 days for us. What can I say about Gill & Donna, well they are very Excellent and... More

I was looking for accommodation close to both town centre and beaches, with wifi, tea making facilities and a good breakfast - and this is certainly what I got at Ivanhoe. Donna and Gill were extremely friendly and helpful, remembering everyone's names and their particular likes and dislikes. The room was comfortable, spotlessly clean and the whole house was furnished... More

When searching for B&B's in such a wonderful town as Falmouth, you inevitably get a bewilderinig choice and you pretty much have to 'take a chance' and just pick one. Well, quite a few years ago I made one of best decisions ever by choosing the Ivanhoe, and I have since enjoyed many happy stays there. The warm welcome I... More

Stayed here on a short break to Falmouth. Gill and Donna were excellent hosts very welcoming and friendly. Our room was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and the mini fridge with fresh milk for tea and coffee was a nice added extra. Fabulous traditional cooked breakfast or alternative varied menu with an excellent choice of delicious home made jams and marmalades.... More

Gill and Donna were really friendly and could not have been more helpful. They gave us a lot of useful information about the Falmouth area and local events. The guesthouse was spotlessly clean and well kept throughout. There was plenty of choices for breakfast and the bathrobes were a nice touch. The Ivanhoe is close to the beaches and to... More

Out stay at Ivanhoe Guesthouse was a very pleasant experience. Donna and Gill looked after us very well and are delightful hosts. The artwork, the self made jams and the friendly chat during breakfast greatly add to the positive atmosphere of the guesthouse. In short: we highly recommend Ivanhoe Guesthouse!

This is how a B&B should be run. Good position, immaculately clean, friendly welcoming people & attention to detail. It makes such a difference when the operators are happy and enjoying their business. Perfect place for our 3 day stay visiting the Cornwall sights.

Donna and Gill were great hosts and couldn't have been more welcoming. The room was lovely, and the guesthouse ideally placed for both the beach and town, and just a few minutes from the station which was handy for us as we were on foot. We were a little surprised not to find a veggie B&B in such a veggie-friendly... More

I had phoned a couple of B&B's in Falmouth and then phoned Ivanhoe and knew straight away that this was going to be the B&B we booked because Donna was very friendly and welcoming from that first phone call - they say don't they that you know when someone is smiling on the other end of the phone and Donna...
