We spent 3 nights at Ivanhoes, in a VERY small room with 2 twin beds that gave us little room to move. Beds comfortable, pillows not so. Room was clean and no issues. We CBs (many of us :) often opt for small pensions and guesthouses and this delivered the exp. we were looking for. Met some fellow house guests incl. two well travelled, savvy ladies from Texas who helped make our stay in wonderful Port Antonio a great exp. (Hello Sandy and Vicki!!). The proprietor of Ivanhoe's, Mrs. Lorna Burke, is a character for sure, sufficiently aloof but friendly enough to chat when you make the effort. Free WI-FI work's well on main floor with spotty coverage on 1st and 2nd floors. I used iPhone FaceTime to connect with family :) Breakfast available for a fee and served with a bit of old fashioned flair. Expect a surcharge for a 2nd cup. Parked my rental vehicle right on the street without issues. We would stay again.
