Extremely comfortable place to stay with very friendly owners. A super breakfast and spotlessly clean rooms. Short walking distance to the town and nearby restaurants. An excellent Bed and Breakfast .

Firstly I will apologise for my late review! I stayed in September this year so has taken me a while but had always intended to post my comments. I think it's all been said already but Donna and Gill were both very friendly and helpful. Happy to chat and offer advice/information when needed, but not intrusive. I thought being given... More

My wife and I spent a week going through southern England, and we stayed at both hotels in London and another B&B. This was by far the best place we stayed. Donna and Gill were wonderful. The breakfast was awesome, the room was clean and homey, and they treat guests extra special, from advising attractions to giving coupons etc. The... More

Our first trip to Falmouth; booked 2 nights at Ivanhoe based upon consistently good reviews on TripAdvisor - and upon arrival knew immediately that we'd made a good choice. This small and friendly B&B is just a short walk from the town centre, in a quiet location with easy parking on the road outside. Our room was spotlessly clean and... More

Me and my family have been coming to stay here for the past 8 years, my parents initially visiting me at uni, and since graduating I have been coming back either by myself or with my boyfriend to enjoy my home away from home. And that is exactly what the Ivanhoe is. Donna and Gill could not do more to... More

We recently stayed at Ivanhoe when visiting our son and found it to be the most welcoming and comfortable place I could have hoped for. Donna is simply charming and nothing was too much trouble for her. She made us feel so welcome and was a real pleasure to meet. The breakfast was just lovely (credit to Gill) and the... More

We have been walking the coastal path every September since 2003. The Ivanhoe is by far the best B and B we have stayed in. Great breakfast every morning, spacious comfortable rooms. Close enough to the shops pubs and restaurants to be able to walk in but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. Gill and Donna are great... More

Hi Richard, What a great review! We are delighted with your comments and so pleased you had a good stay with us. I would like to say relaxing, but when you consider the distance you covered walking the coastpath around from Mullion to Falmouth over 3 days, you've probably gone home for a rest!

You never quite know what you're going to get when you book accommodation, but this guest house surpassed all our expectations. Set in a beautiful part of Falmouth, it is quiet and peaceful, but only minutes walk away from the hustle and bustle of the docks, harbours, shops and eating places. There was a very warm welcome from Donna, who... More
