We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ivanhoe House. The room was lovely, very comfortable and had great amenities. The service from Julie & Roger was excellent, this included fantastic breakfasts. It's a short walk to the restaurant and beach precincts yet is tucked away behind Ivanhoe Gardens in a quiet cul de sac. I'd recommend Ivanhoe House to anyone wanting... More

A really super B&B. It ticks all the boxes - clean and comfortable and just minutes from the centre of Manly. Hosts Roger and Julie have left nothing to chance to ensure their guests have memorable stay. Loved it!

Julie and Roger are very friendly and helpful with any information you need and anything you need of your stay. Lovely place, I stayed in the garden room which is like a small apartment, nice to have your own space. Manly town, wharf and beach is about 10 - 15 mins walk, and Fairlight beach is nearer still with its... More

We stayed in the garden room for 4 nights on our arrival to Manly. This was the first stop of our travels along the East Coast and to visit family. The location is perfect with a couple of minutes walk to Manly Beach along with a number of shops and restaurants and a few minutes walk to Manly Wharf to... More

What a lucky find! We thoroughly enjoyed our 8 day stay in the Garden Room.Ivanhoe House is ideally located in a very quiet cul de sac opposite Ivanhoe botanical gardens. It was just a short walk to Manly Wharf, town centre and the beach. The room is tucked away behind a little garden with a private patio area. We enjoyed... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay in Manly & this was a great base near the fantastic beach & buzzy restaurants but in a nice residential area near gardens & the sports ground. Only a few minutes walk into town, downhill, & good exercise uphill after dinner. Easy trip by ferry into the city & by bus to other suburbs.... More

My partner and I had a lovely stay at Ivanhoe House, they really go the extra mile to make you feel welcome and looked after. Despite the rain and disappointing weather we loved our time in Manly and would not hesitate to book with Ivanhoe again when we return. Thank you both so much!

This was my first stay at Ivanhoe House and I found it to be a wonderful oasis in the middle of busy Manly. Everything was spotlessly clean, fresh and comfortable. It was quiet which is important to me as a woman who has super hearing and hates other people's noise ( so intolerant of me I know!). I come and... More

Ivanhoe House will stay in our heart forever as a very important factor for making our Sydney visit so positive and memorable! We lived in the garden room, which was really a room enveloped by the exotic greenery of an Australian garden.Across from us was a beautiful park ( which looked more like a piece of the rainforest ! )...
