I spent 5 days at No 1 while attending a workshop at nearby Bernard Leach Pottery ( a must see for everyone coming to St Ives). Simon and Ann are the most welcoming, caring and attentive hosts one could find. The accomodation is very charming, cosy and beautifully decorated both in the shared areas and in the bedroom My room... More

Literally just walked in the door from a weekends stay at no 1 for my partners 50th birthday. it's absolutely stunning, especially at Christmas. Relaxed, stylish, clean, luxurious, beautiful toiletries, towels. They catered for every request, were discreet, helpful, throughly genuinely nice people, and natural hosts. I cannot recommend highly enough a stay. I would love to go back.

We booked as a special 'without the kids' couple of days and No 1 gave us a really luxurious break.The room was lovely with many delightful touches and the breakfast...what can I say? Just stunning. Every detail clearly thought about and the whole experience was a very lovely one indeed.

We stayed for 5 nights in October. A beautifully decorated place. We had the room with the sea view. It had a window seat so you could perch yourself there and enjoy the view that opens up through a gap between rooftops which actually makes it quite charming. Comfy beds, crisp bed linen, power shower with high end toiletries. The... More

Having read some reviews I was much anticipating my trip to No 1 St Ives, whilst worrying that maybe it wouldn't live up to them! No fear. The house, the breakfast and Simon and Anna all add up to a truly blissful experience. I felt as if I had known them for years within the first few minutes. So helpful... More

We stayed for one night in October and were delighted with this B & B. Anna and Simon were perfect hosts, the breakfast was delicious, the rooms lovely. Highly recommended - the best place we have stayed in St Ives.

Had the pleasure of staying here with my mum for a couple of nights in September. Comfortable beds, great shower & fab breakfast, however it's Anna & Simon's hospitality that made the stay so memorable. Loved the chats at breakfast & would definitely stay here again.

We concur with everything which has already been written about the lovely No 1. Simon and Anna were more than kind and attentive when we stayed last week and made our holiday truly unforgettable. I especially enjoyed the big, comfy armchairs and little table in room1 where we could drink our evening coffee and sample the homemade shortbread biscuits. The... More

Greeted with umbrellas to shield us from the great British weather, we were welcomed into this chic little number. Stylish surroundings, beautiful garden, great room, wonderful shower with great products. The breakfasts were top notch; homemade bread, homemade granola, local preserves, dairy etc and the full English was delicious. But what makes this place special are the hosts; attentive, friendly,... More

Every one seems to have the same as us. This B&B is a little gem. We felt thouroughly spoilt by the hosts who. The rooms were gorgeous. Breakfasts sublime. There is so much attention to detail. Couldn't of asked for better. Anna and Simon make you feel like close friends rather than guests. We will definitely be back.
