My wife and I stayed for one night to see a band and enjoy some local walks. We found Gill and Donna to be genuinely warm and welcoming hosts who took an interest in helping us get the most from our short stay. The house is beautifully decorated throughout with a nice 'seaside' feel, and our room was a good size with a very comfortable bed and pillows. And it was so clean - not that I'm by any means a person who runs their finger along looking for dust, but I just couldn't help noticing that it was spotless! Finally, breakfast was plentiful and delicious, and of course I have to mention Gill's huge selection of home made jams and marmalades; we only tried one but it was delicious and no doubt all the others are too. We very much intend to return to the Ivanhoe, and next time for longer.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at the Ivanhoe Guesthouse during a recent Rabbie's tour. Perfect location, perfect hosts, wonderful accommodations. Easy walk to the beach and to restaurants, of course. Worth visiting repeatedly just for the amazing selection of homemade jams and marmalades! I'll be going back for some rhubarb/ginger, myself... for

We have just spent 4 wonderful days at the Ivanhoe. Both Donna and Gill were so friendly and welcoming and made us feel completely at home. Our room was very comfortable and warm with plenty of storage and tea and coffee making facilities. There was a small fridge in the room and Donna provided us with fresh milk every day which was a great touch.

Breakfast was excellent with a good choice of food including cooked breakfast, pancakes with maple syrup, kedgeree and a choice of Gill's home made jams and marmalades which were delicious.
The location is great for both the town and the beach.

At the end of our stay Donna very kindly drove us to the coach stop.

We recommend the Ivanhoe without hesitation and we will definitely return when next visiting Falmouth.

Thank you Donna and Gill for making our stay so special.
