We rarely write reviews, but thought No 1 deserved a few lines. We stayed for 4 nights in August. This is like no other B&B we have stayed in before. Lovely stylish rooms and bathroom, a truly great breakfast spread and above all two great hosts that are very welcoming. A lot of thought has gone into making this place... More

We stayed with Anna and Simon at No 1 and enjoyed a full week in St Ives. Our hosts were charming and very helpful with not only restaurant recommendations but also with places to visit. A lovely room which was spotless and well equipped and we much appreciated Anna's home baked delicious biscuits on our hospitality tray. Breakfast ordered the... More

Another wonderful stay at No1 for 6 nights this time. Breakfasts were delicious again, such a wide choice! The large breakfast table and Anna introducing everyone leads to some lazy extended breakfasts with great conversation. We met some really nice people! Rooms are beautifully decorated and so comfortable. Most of all though, the welcome and attention to detail by Simon... More

I booked this B&B for my husbands 30th Birthday. From start to finish we could not fault this place...the room, the food, the location all 10 out of 10. Simon and Anna have got running a B&B spot on. Couldn't ask for better hosts. The choice of breakfast was great...the quality of ingredients was great as was Simons cooking. A... More

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. It is difficult to write down everything that was perfect about our stay but it really was! We are very grateful... More

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.
