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

If you are looking for a friendly welcome and superb breakfast go no further than the Ivanhoe. The hosts Gill and Donna can not do enough for you. The rooms are spotless and the facilities of the rooms are on a par to a 4 Star hotel and more. We found it very convenient for walking into town, coastal walks... More

Our second stay at this lovely guesthouse. A beautiful, warm welcome from Donna and Gill. The rooms are spotless and beds very comfy. Breakfast is delicious and there is a great choice of homemade jams and marmalade. We look forward to returning.

Ivanhoe is special - our room was immaculate and comfortable - every detail well thought out. I particularly liked the fresh milk in the fridge! Breakfasts were delicious - with a great range of choices including pancakes which my daughter loved. As a vegetarian, I really appreciated the wide choice available and Gill's homemade jam must be tasted. The atmosphere... More

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

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
