We have just returned from a 5 day stay at The Nook and what a lovely place it is with on site parking. We were in room 4 which was clean and comfy with sea view and 2 windows so had a nice cross breeze. Nice breakfast room with a good choice of breakfast. All area's of The Nook are... More

Tucked away from any nosey traffic and pedestrians The Nook is a super Bed and Breakfast with a friendly team to greet and look after you. The accommodation is... More

Room was very clean and had enough space for it be comfortable. We have stayed in the Family Room however, Room 2 has good views of the sea. This place is... More

Stayed here attending a course at the St Ives school of painting. Single room, spotlessly clean with a great ensuite shower and a good choice at breakfast. It is at the top of the town, so expect to do some walking but a bonus is that they have parking..which is great in St Ives!

Lovely, centrally located, hideaway within easy walking distance of St Ives centre, with the added benefit of on-site parking. The hosts were lovely and very accommodating. A great find, I will definitely return.

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights and had a lovely stay. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast was really good value for money. Our room was not the biggest but was to a very comfortable standard and had everything we could wish for. The only negative I can think of was the mattress... More

Booked in January for two nights in July. I thought £110. per night was pricey and I still do. Very clean and well decorated throughout. Very friendly staff. Nice lounge with TV, outdoor patio and pleasing breakfast room. Very nice breakfast served. Wi-Fi was good. We had room 10 which the website describes as cosy. I guess that is code... More

Returned to The Nook once again. As always the room was spacious (room 4). Clean and comfy. Breakfast was nice and plenty to choose from. Walk back from the town is a steep incline and after a week just about got used to it.... The weather was good as not much to do when raining Overall a good stay once... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights just after easter. The room was clean, tidy and comfortable. Very warm welcome from Lynne, who was very helpful (as this was our first time to st ives). B&B has great location with only short walk into the town and beach. Breakfast was very nice!
