It was cozy and had everything needed for a pleasant and comfortable stay. I must say that it was very quiet and I had an...

Everything was perfect from arriving to being waved farewell by Donna and Jill. They both went the extra "mile" to ensure our stay was wonderful. They are both friendly and welcoming, breakfasts are superb and Jill's homemade jams and marmalades are delicious. We highly recommend Ivanhoe and look forward to staying there again.

I stayed at the Ivanhoe Guesthouse for 5 nights - it couldn't have been a better choice. The hosts couldn't have been more welcoming, the room was perfect and the breakfasts were scrumptious.
