Stayed here for one night very clean and large bedroom and bathroom, had a good nights sleep with free parking and a substantial breakfast to see us off on our trip home. The price was very competitive with other b and bs in the southport area.

We found the owner very helpful and obliging, he allowed us to park our car long after we should have vacated as we were there for the airshow. A decent breakfast served as requested. Location is good for town and beach. Good off road parking. Good value and an enjoyable experience. Recommended for a short break.

My train ticket was purchased and being as flexible as possible on my times and with the help of my senior rail card the price fell from £65 return to just £11.23 on the outward journey to £8.50 on the return. This did mean travelling when the train companies were slack mid-week and over the lunch time period. The journey... More

Location, parking and price are all good and very much as the website would have you believe. The WiFi is very fast for a small local property and was a very pleasant surprise, and the shower was hot and fairly powerful which made for a nice wakeup. Unfortunately we had to leave at 5:45am to get to a triathlon in... More

Photos on the website looked nice and so were some of the reviews, but our room was very, very dated and a bit grubby. Seeing as the guesthouse was full, I didn't see the point of trying to get moved. Breakfast was ok. I suppose you get what you pay for....so next time We will dip a little deeper in... More

How can Location get a score of 2 - we are 5 mins walk from Lord Street and 7 mins to the station. If we are not close enough to your chosen venue that's not our fault - we are where we are and there is a location map on the website. The room occupied by you is of Victorian... More

My mum and I stayed last night in room 6. Bit of a trek up the stairs though. It was a lovely twin room. Very clean and nicely decorated. Beds were comfortable and the room was nice and warm as it was a bit on the chilly side outside. We were allowed an earlier check in than the permitted time... More

We were in Southport for a 3 day dance festival and booked our stay here just by reviews. We were delighted when we booked in and were greeted so warmly and saw how charming and spacious our room was. Every small detail to make it a comfortable stay was there. Very comfy bed, pretty bedding, a wardrobe and drawers big... More

We used trip advisor in selecting a suitable guest house to stay in Southport and read all the reviews before we made our decision. We have just returned after spending two nights(January 5th-7th. 2015) at the Ivydene. Our experience was a particularly good one. The proprietors were especially helpful and went out of their way to ensure our comfort and... More

My friend and I stayed at the Ivydene for one night whilst we were visiting some friends in the area. We booked online and the photos and reviews looked ok for the price we were paying. However these did not mirror our experience. We were met by the owner (I presume ) as he did not introduce himself and although... More

WOW !! At Ivydene we take the condition, cleanliness and management of our guest house very seriously and for some reason which is beyond me this witch hunt is totally out of order and grossly exaggerated. While I have better things to do than respond to trivia I will attempt to address all of the issues mentioned. 1 If I... More
