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.

May 2015 my friend and I stayed at Ivanhoe Guesthouse where two very pleasant ladies, Donna and Gill, greeted us and made us feel very much at home. Their home is beautifully decorated, lovely and clean, and very comfortable. Bed Linen, towels and two bath robes spotlessly clean. We had a small fridge in the room where fresh milk was... More

The room is clean and pleasant. The breakfast is more than delicious and the location is great. But why is Ivanhoe guesthouse so special? Two reasons: Donna and Gill, our hosts! They are so dedicated to their work, that you really feel at home in their guesthouse. They are helpful and sincerely interested in their guests. That's why we felt... More

Great place to stay, clean and tidy with welcoming and helpful hosts. Good breakfast choices with homemade jams and marmalade for your toast. The provision of dressing gowns in the bedrooms was nice, since my room was not en-suite, although i had exclusive use of an adjacent bathroom.
