Stayed at this beautiful guesthouse this week during a business trip. I have previously stayed for pleasure but it is perfect for both. Comfortable, homely, relaxing and quiet - nothing is too much trouble. I was sent on my way each morning, to work, with a fabulous breakfast to keep me going. Highly recommended and I will certainly be back... More

Really enjoyed our stay at the Ivanhoe with Donna and Jill. Beautiful accommodation and breakfasts and the overall atmosphere great. Nothing was too much trouble for the girls and they made us feel really welcome. I would definitely recommend the Ivanhoe, 10 out of 10 on every level. Looking forward to returning soon. :0) Carmel, Eddie, Rose and Pat.

Just returned from our second visit to this fantastic guest house. The best mushrooms and scrambled eggs ever tasted, look forward to our next visit. Excellent facilities and very friendly chats with Donna and Gill and thank you for making us so welcome. Ideal position for exploring Falmouth, very clean and had everything we needed.

From the super friendly owners to the lovely well equipped bedroom to the lounge which is so unusual in a b and b - to the dining room which is so charming it could be in a shelter magazine. A perfect vacation.
