Warm reception (as always) from Donna and Gill, who made us feel at home from the start. There are many places to stay in Falmouth but we always head for Ivanhoe because we always enjoy our stay there. The lounge is well-furnished and comfortable and the breakfast always excellent, with adequate choice. The entire guest house is impressively clean and... More

We stayed in Falmouth for 3 nights over the Easter bank holiday. Staying at the Ivanhoe is great value for Falmouth and I would recommend it to anyone. It is the only guesthouse in Falmouth that I have stayed in more than once which says it all! The hot breakfast menu is extensive (full english, vegetarian, kedgeree, english muffin with... More

Stayed at the Ivanhoe Guest house for 4 nights. 3 of the nights were in a single room and the fourth in a double when joined by my wife. Both rooms were spotlessly clean and well equipped. Extras included a fridge in the room with milk to make a hot drink from the good selection of teas, coffee and hot... More

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.
