A pleasant place to stay on the hill out of St Ives, approx 10 mins walk to the town but 15-20 mins back! A very friendly welcome. We had room 1 which was spaceous, clean and well furnished. There was no heating in the shower room which meant that towels did not dry easily. Breakfast was good with a nice... More

My wife and I stayed at The Nook mid-week in late September. We were greeted on our arrival and shown to our room, even though we were early. Our greeter was very helpful and answered all our questions and gave us a couple of good dining recommendations. Our room was a good size with enough storage space, a coffee and... More

Just finished a 3 night stay at the Nook. The room was a good size and nicely furnished although the bed was too soft for my personal taste. The owners were friendly and they offered to give my the run down on St. Ives which wasn't necessary as I had visited before. Breakfast finished at 9.30 which if you like... More

We were given a warm friendly welcome, the room was clean and comfy with modern decor. The room had TV and free wifi and hot drink making facilities.The breakfasts were great with lots of choice. Unlike most other guest houses in St Ives there was on site parking which meant we didn't need the car at all.

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
