Our stay at No1 was just magic!! Like one of the other review states, to put a simple ditto, whilst referring to the other reviews, would simply not do justice to the experience that we have had! We read the reviews, which were all very excellent so our expectations were quite high and still were surpassed completely. The stunning scenery,... More

We stayed two nights at No. 1. First off, what truly makes staying at No. 1 a delightful experience were the proprietors, Simon and Anna. They went out of their way to make our stay and visit to St. Ives a memorable experience. They showed us the ins and outs of the property and room when we arrived, helped us... More

We just loved it here! We were excited about our arrival to St Ives and No1, this was our first family holiday to Cornwall together, we had read all the excellent reviews are were really looking forward to it.

Is simply writing "ditto" to all the previous reviews too easy? Perhaps but it's hard to think of anything else to add to the glowing reviews previously written. My husband and I have stayed in numerous B&B's and No1 is simply the best. The sleeping room, the food, and inviting common space are all topnotch. But what really sets No... More

We've recently stayed for 3 nights at No1 in st Ives. To start I must mention there is a certain amount of hesitation when booking the top rated B and B. high expectations and glowing reviews usually leads to a certain amount of disappointment. However our stay at No 1 very pleasantly surprised us by meeting and exceeding our expectations... More

I rarely give 5 Stars but No1 deserves them and more. Great hosts, fabulous room (pure cotton sheets - ah! luxury!) The breakfast had a great range and all top quality with locally sourced fruits, meats and fish. Very stylish design throughout with some lovely art works on display. We shall definitely be returning.

Anna and Simon made us very welcome in their lovely home, which has been beautifully and stylishly refurbished. The wonderful breakfasts certainly got us off to an excellent start and the very comfortable bed provided a perfect end to the day. They have created a very friendly atmosphere where you may well find yourself lingering over the breakfast table enjoying... More

Anna and Simon are so welcoming... The breakfasts...yum..the little thoughtful things and the bedding...the towels...shall I go on? Its location is just right for a gentle saunter into St Ives. A great base if you are travelling further afield. Stylish and luxurious, quiet and calm. Lovely garden area. Will be returning.

If you don't like the sound of the following then No1 St Ives is probably not for you: Two warm, friendly, helpful, hosts called Anna and Simon. A Beautiful house, tastefully decorated to high standards which is so spotless you couldn't find a speck of dust if you tried. Puffed up cushions on two cosy, comfy sofas in the Living... More

The excellent reviews say it all! We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience of staying at No1 St Ives. First class food and accommodation at a great location. The hosts, Simon and Anna, were cheerful, helpful and thought of every detail to make a stay there special. We have already recommended this bed and breakfast establishment to friends and family.
