Ivanhoe House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 9 Manly B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Julie and Roger really looked after us well, they are very caring hosts. the breakfasts were well presented and more than adequate. The room was clean and comfortable and suited us just fine, although it might be a bit small for some. We enjoyed being able to park our car and walk to the centre of Manly through the very attractive Ivanhoe Park. The secluded patio felt like being in a rainforest, and was great for breakfasts and an evening drink.
We will recomend Ivanhoe B & B to our friends. Hilde and Dave, Davistown.

We had a wonderful stay at IvanhoeB&B. The room with separate entrance and en suite bathroom is nice and clean and the little balcony with a nice green view is perfect to have a relaxed breakfast or a good-night-drink. Great and rich breakfast with wishlist for the next day The hosts are generous helpful. We got well suited advises to explore the environment; felt very comfortable and spoilt. Thanks a lot. It is a very good option to stay in this quiet, by Julie and Roger perfect hostet B&B for a stay in Sydney. Taking the ferries from and to Sydney make the stay even nicer. We highly recommend IvanhoeB&B.

Stayed four nights. Very clean and well appointed rooms. Great hosts and breakfasts. Much better than staying in an overpriced hotel in Sydney. Being able to park the the car for free is a bonus. A fifteen minute walk to the ferry terminal and you can be in Sydney in no time at all.
Only down side was the room being smaller than we would have liked. However a small price to pay for the convenience and we would recommend Ivanhoe B&B to others thinking of sightseeing in and around Sydney.

I stayed for a week and could have stayed a month! Woken up by chorus of birds each morning and fern filtered light. Breakfast on the patio and then off for a surf. Julie and Roger are great fun and nothing is too much trouble. The location is great, five minutes to ferries, restaurants, everything!

Thanks a bunch, will definitely be back soon!

Great place to stay.

As always the service was excellent, with a warm, friendly welcome and everything ready for our stay.
The rooms (bathroom, living/bedroom) were clean and fresh and although not huge, great for a beachside/sightseeing holiday. The breakfast of fresh fruits, juices and toast was just what we wanted. Eating on the patio was a perfect way to start the day.
The location at the top of Ivanhoe Park is quiet and pleasant with a delightful walk down through the English-style park into Manly. We particularly liked the personal, friendly touches; the cleanliness and the comfy bed.

Thank you Julie & Roger for a delightful B &B.
We appreciate your attention to detail as demonstrated in the decor, clearly presented local information and the yummy self serve breakfast - especially the fruit salad.
My husband and I attended a conference in Manly in Nov 2011 and Nov 2012 - we're planning to stay here again for the 2013 conference - much prefer this rather than an impersonal hotel.
We've stayed in the Garden Room twice. Dappled light filters in through the trees and the birds sing. We appreciate the quiet and the privacy.

Recently we had some renovations carried out on our house. We moved to the B & B, Ivanhoe House, for a short time. The price was right, given the more expensive options around Manly. The location was perfect for us - away from the rabble of nightlife in Manly but an easy walk to restaurants, the beach and the harbour. The bus and ferry are so handy. It was quiet, peaceful, leafy and convenient. Our room was spacious, well-appointed and clean. The service was wonderful, cheerful and non-intrusive. Our room was cleaned and tidied each day and fresh towels were provided daily. We loved the breakfast of fresh fruits and freshly squeezed orange juice, with a variety of cereals, toasts and eggs if required. We were very comfortable during our short stay, very pleased with the service and value for money and have recommended Ivanhoe House to our friends.
