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 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

Ted B, Owner at Ivydene Guest House, responded to this review

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

My husband and I spent 3 nights here whilst visiting family. Twin room was ok but beds weren't together and mine was particularly hard and lumpy. Hubby and I swapped for the next two nights. We like to watch TV when in bed at night but this wasn't possible as you could only watch it from one of the beds.... More

My wife and I stayed at the Ivydene for 3 nights while attending a jazz weekend at the nearby Talbot Hotel. After an initial hiccough with a bed that my wife found too firm, quickly resolved the following morning when Ted and Tonja produced a spare duvet to use as a mattress topper, our stay was very comfortable. Everything was... More

The guest house was absolutely lovely. The owners were very friendly and breakfast was well cooked. Our room had everything we could want, the beds were very comfy and the car park in front was very handy. The rooms were quiet and the guest house was just a short walk from the main streets and the sea front. Would stay... More
