So glad I found this quiet spot in Manly; I could enjoy Sydney and then stay in a quiet spot close to Manly Beach but away from the fray. Julie and Roger went out of their way to make sure I had whatever I needed.

My husband and I have stayed at Ivanhoe House twice - once several years ago and again last month, when we attended a friend's funeral nearby. Julie and Roger are so friendly and made us feel so welcome each time, particularly on our most recent visit, arranging a cab to take us to the funeral and offering ice and sympathy...

I'm always so happy to arrive and knowing I'll be back in three months keeps me from being sad when I leave.

Our stay was very pleasant and comfortable, We could walk to the corso through the lovely park in only 10 minutes. Ivanhoe House is a very pretty place and we really enjoyed our time there. Julie and Roger were excellent hosts.

We had a lovely weekend in Manly and our accommodation was very comfortable and a great location. A lovely walk through the botanic garden to the beach. Quiet and convenient. Roger and Julie were very hospitable and generous and great to have parking.

We loved everything about our stay. Manly is such a nice location and Ivanhoe Bed & Breakfast is great! The rooms are very nice, comfy beds and a perfect atmosphere. The 5-minute walk to the city center was no problem for us. In the garden room wasn't good internet, but because we booked also the verandah room, we used the...

This was our third stay at Ivanhoe house bed and breakfast. Rodger and Julie are fabulous hosts, with excellent knowledge of how to get the best out of Manley and Sydney. The rooms are beautiful and tranquil yet located so close to Manley.

Staying in Manly

Neighborhood Profile
Manly
A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is a great way to experience Sydney Harbor Bay and the Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.
