I was in the area for a conference and Ivanhoe was the perfect spot for me. It is lovely and quite, away from the main roads and surrounded by trees.
I was able to walk in one direction to the conference and then come back, refresh and walk the other way to restaurants and the beach. Everything I needed was within 20 minutes walk.
The owners were very accommodating and offered fresh breakfast if I wanted it.
The bed was very comfortable and amenities lovely and clean.
I'll be back for sure.

Hi Katie It was great to welcome you to Ivanhoe House. Loved the fact that your incredible morning energy spurred me on to take my morning walk. Thank you for taking time to review our B & B, we really appreciate it. Good luck with the Pilates and we hope to welcome you again.

This is a great spot if you want to be away from the center of Sydney. Buy the unlimited transit pass and you can take the ferry back and forth as much as you want. But Manly itself has enough charm and things to do that you can spend a couple of days locally. The hosts are excellent. Breakfast is a little different from most B and Bs. You fill out a menu card the day before and they stock the items while you are out. The only hot thing you can have is boiled eggs which you make yourself in this cute little contraption. The advantage is you can eat whenever you want and there is plenty of food. The verandah room has a great place to sit and enjoy the outdoors. I highly recommend this place. The hosts have thought of everything and they are lovely people who can help you get the most of your time in their area.

Room Tip: If you like to sleep late or are light sleepers you may need earplugs because of the morning birds.

First found this gem in 2010 and spent a couple of breaks here. Back again in January 2014 and everything still excellent. Julie & Roger are great hosts and all the little touches they provide go towards making your stay very special. Stayed in the Verandah Room this time and it was so peaceful and relaxing. Hope to get back again on my next trip.

We spend about a week here. It was great for us as everything is in walking distance (Beach, Warf, Corso). It is a pretty quiet and peacefully location to go back to after a busy day on the Beach or Sydney. We really enjoyed to sit on the nice balcony with a glass of wine or a beer, it was great. Also the sleeping room is comfortable with everything you need. On top of that the bath is renewed and in a very good condition. The host’s Julie and Roger where very nice, helpful and welcoming.
Definitely we would recommend this B&B to everybody we like.

We arrived at the Verandah Room on Boxing Day and stayed for 6 nights for the 1st week of our honeymoon and were delighted with the beautiful location and the cleanliness and size of the room- which looks bigger in real life than the pictures. We were so pleased that the excellent reviews we read before booking had lived up to reality. Roger was so welcoming and friendly, giving us lots of helpful tips about transport and vantage points for New Year's Eve. He even gave us a Manly tour in his car and took us up to North Head and was pretty handy with the camera too! We can't thank him enough for the kindness he showed us. Unfortunately, we didn't get to meet Julie but we're saving up again already so hopefully one day we will! The house is just beautiful as is the park it faces (we enjoyed spotting the parrots and bats) and we really enjoyed Manly town and beach and the lovely ferry ride in to Sydney. I would definitely recommend this accommodation and location for anyone lucky enough to be visiting Sydney.

We first came here in March and decided then that we'd like to stay here again for the New Year celebrations. The room was available for the 5 nights we wanted, so we booked it right away. Really, it's all been said already, by others and ourselves. The location is terrific and it's hard to believe that you're in town when it is so green outside your door and the birds and insects are calling. As before, Roger was very welcoming and helpful - unfortunately, Julie had had to go back to the UK for a while to help her mother - and he coped very well (10 out of 10 for the former teacher).

Room Tip: Only two to choose between! We stayed in the Garden Room both times and liked the 'greenness...
