It was clean and tidy and we was made very welcome when we arrived. We received parking as requested and we was given a map of the area. The room was comfortable and the towels were soft and very white. Bathroom very small but at the end of the day you are staying in a b & b and this... More

The Nook has a quiet location 10 min walk uphill from the town. It is a 4 star rated hotel (more nice B&B) with a large TV area downstairs and a breakfast room next to it. There is also a patio out the back if the weather is good although is onlooked by terraced houses. The rooms are not very... More

We arrived and were shown to a TINY room, which the guy admitted was normally only assigned to people staying for a night or 2, and we were staying for 5. There was only a bed and a chest of drawers, but no dressing table or chair. We had to store half our luggage in the car just so that... More

We decided to finish a week of campervanning with a stay in The Book before heading North. As we were on a budget, we stayed in Room 6 (one of the smallest rooms), which suited us well as a base to lay our heads- clean and well-maintained. It was great to be able to check in at our requested time... More

We have just come home from a short break in the lovely St Ives. We stayed at The Nook and I have to say what a lovely gem we have found. 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
