Stayed in the Tuscan room as once again it was only for 1 night. Breakfast was superbly presented, and the bed wonderful. The amenities available rival those of a high-end hotel property. Am a picky customer and couldn't fault anything.

Ivy on Glenelg is a spacious B & B, generously furnished with a large en suite, kitchen, washing machine (no dryer) and all the ingredients to have a light or full hot breakfast. There is off street parking and the cottage is far enough from the main road to avoid any traffic noise. We were met on arrival by the...

Thank you Geoff333_13 for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for doing so. We hope your trip to Tassie was excellent.

Fabulous B&B. Ivy is well situated to town centre and tourist attractions. The B&B has it all including breakfast and afternoon tea. David and Irene are the hosts. They are welcoming, intelligent and very informative regarding local attractions and Tasmanian history. A B&B experience that's a must.

We cant speak highly enough of our stay here. We were very late arriving - almost 11 pm - and greeted warmly by our host. The apartment is gorgeous and very comfortable and quiet.

Thank you for a beautiful place to rest our weary heads after an incredible day at my sister's wedding. Ivy on Glenelg is simply stunning, with old world charm, tucked away as a hidden gem in the small town of Campbell Town. Every conceivable detail was taken care of during our one night stay. We were supposed to go out...

A beautiful must stay location. We stayed in the Doctor's Wing for 2 nights - self contained, spacious, historic and so well equipped. We're greeted by a roaring fire, berry compotes, and all the facilities you could wish for topped off with generous warm hospitality from David and Irene. Access to the farm and pet animals was a added treat...

The Ivy on Glenelg is a historic building in a town already steeped in history. We stayed in the Doctor's Wing which was a fully self-contained, incredibly comfortable and cosy place to stay. The room arrangement is a little odd in that the entrance room leads into the first bedroom (with a single and a double bed) which you have...

Thank you Gordon D for your review. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay. We have tried hard to maintain the historic feel but add discreet mod-cons. The girls (hens) work hard to produce what we think are absolutely the most beautiful eggs. Thank you for finding us.

Beautiful and comfortable old world charm. A welcoming beacon for a very wet miserable day. Everything, plus more was provided. A definite home away from home.
