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

We had a great time in this wonderful BnB. The breakfast was delicious (Simon's a superb Chef :-) ). The hosts are very friendly and helpful. Their suggestions for trips, dinner etc. are fantastic. The service is incredible- after mentioning that the mattress in our room was not in good condition, a brand new one was delivered immediately. We highly... More

Very good recommendations for tours and food and all we wanted to know. We felt almost like home, laughed a... More

"Number One in name and nature. We had a fabulous time in St Ives and could not have asked for a better place to stay anywhere never mind just in St Ives. Friendly but discreet hosts Anna and Simon kept a spotless establishment with modern amenities and decoration. We stayed in the twin room which was perfect with a fantastic... More

We travel a lot and have experienced hotels and B&Bs all over the world, but No 1 in St Ives, just a 10 minute walk from the harbour, has to be the best place we have ever stayed. From the moment you arrive, Simon and Anna welcome you into their home, take your bags up to your room and show... More
