We stayed in room 11. Which is the family room consisting of two single beds and a double with an ensuite bathroom. Staying with our 2 teenage children it was cosy but comfortable enough for our 2 night stay. Pro's: clean and fresh room with nice crisp white bedding (and big comfy marshmallow-like pillows), ample good quality towels and nice... More

I stayed in Room 8 for 4 nights. A single room which, for a change, was not a cupboard! Lots of room, crisp and clean towels and linen and a spacious modern bathroom with toiletries provided. Plenty of storage, tv, hairdryer, refreshments and imkrmation pack. At £42 per night with a superb breakfast included was excellent value. If I had... More

We stayed in The Nook as part of a wedding present, we were in room 6, yes it was small but as we were out all day did it matter? Not a jot! Breakfast was lovely with several choices as well as a continental choice, if I had to mention a fownfall it would be the lack of noise reduction,... More

We stayed in room 6. This is a single room with a double bed squeezed in. Sitting in the dining room was not a pleasant experience. The tables were squeezed in far too tight. The owners could improve on the one hour given for breakfast and extend it at weekends. As most people on holiday would like a lie in... More

Was expecting a lot more. Found the room on late Rooms as we were in Wadebridge and wanted to revisit St Ives as we hadn`t been there for a number of years. Was unable to book on the late Rooms site so rang the "Guest House" directly and was told the only room available was a "superior double" at an... More

A thorough inspection of this property revealed nothing to concern the Inspector. Indeed, the quality of breakfast napkins (starched linen) epitomised the attention to detail at this property. Granted, it involves walking up a hill from town and the car park could be tricky to the owner of a large car but these are minor points which cannot be changed... More

We had left it a bit late to book our stay and after ringing a few places, the guys at The Nook worked wonders to fit 5 of us in. Easy to find and tucked away from the main drag, it has everything you need for a B&B. We arrived rather early and they had our rooms ready by 1030... More

St Ives was heaving when I stayed there in early July 2014. As pretty as the place is, the crowds in the summer evenings are more than I can face so I was glad to be staying slightly out of town at the Nook. My room was a single and I am a big bloke so it felt rather "tight".... More

fter struggling to find somewhere we happened on the Nook. It is a nice place and not too far to walk into St Ives. Our room (No 4) was tiny and felt a bit hemmed in. It was very hot aswell which didnt help. Breakfast was very good and the staff super and welcoming. Parking is very tight but we... More
