Donegal Town, Ireland
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Great hosts at the Ivanhoe Guest House. Very welcoming. A very nice room, sea view, with lovely bedding. Would stay there again when I visit Falmouth. A bit out of town but very close to the train station so not problem getting to town. Very close to the port . Excellent breakfast.

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...

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.

Clean and pleasant accomodation with very helpful, friendly staff. Only too willing to make your stay carefree, even giving us a lift to the station. Recommened for those who prefer B&B to impersonal hotels.

Dorchester, United Kingdom

Our hosts were wonderful; welcoming and accommodating, willing to help and provided a lovely, clean, comfortable room. Both double bed and single provided. Breakfast was excellent, tasty and plentiful with home made jams. Ivanhoe is located well for access into Falmouth and beyond; it allowed a slow walk round Pendennis Castle and a drive exploring the local coastline and countryside....

My second stay here. It's conveniently located to walk to shops and beach; very clean, service friendly; breakfasts excellent. The room was comfortable with some nice touches like tissues and heated towel rail. It's great value for money and I will be staying again.
