Fantastic place to stay with very reasonable tariffs. Handy to Manly and the ferry. Beautifully comfortable quality bed and pillows. Spotlessly clean throughout with wonderful home baked cakes supplied free daily. Run by the nicest of people.

A short walk up the hill from Manly Wharf is the cozy Ivanhoe House B & B, on a quiet cul-de-sac, just by a hillside garden park. We booked the lower, street-level unit (one of two), and found it to be very clean, comfortable, and cozy. Although there isn't a kitchen per se, there is a corner with all the... More

Conveniently located just a short walk from Manly Promenade and the Corso, the street level room we were in is private and secluded, a little bush haven in suburbia, with birdsong to wake you in the morning. Julie and Roger have obviously put a lot of thought and care into the well appointed room with lots of nice touches and... More

We stayed here for 4 nights at the start of our holiday - very nice place. Julie & Roger were very helpful and the location is great - just out of town which is a short walk through the botanic garden. Very clean and super breakfast in the fridge for the following morning. Definitely recommend!

Thanks Julie and Roger, we had a really good time there. The room was perfect for us, good location, cozy place and close to everywhere in Manly. We also really appreciate as it is located in a quiet cul-de-sac and at the edge of the Botanic Garden, very exotic.

Wonderful oasis in the heart of Manly. The service was excellent and the couple who run this guesthouse are delightful. Loved all the personal touches especially the daily gift of cake and the expresso machine!

This little BNB has become our first choice in Oz. Hosts (Ranger) Roger and Julie make it like a home from home. The proximity to the rugby field is a bonus, worth millions. The Manly dive centre and proximity to the centre make it my Oz heaven/haven. We will be back later in the year.
