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!

We stayed for 2 nights. Clean property, a good breakfast, warm room (if a little too warm but better than being cold!). Lacking attention to detail in the rooms so far as consistency of bathroom products, tea/coffee items, and local information but a good location for St Ives and Porthmeor and South West Coastal Path. Just to reiterate other reviews... More

The king sized room was large enough with plenty of storage but the shower and shower room was very small. Shower was poor and the hairdryer could only be used near a mirror with an extension lead. The room looks nice with new bright curtains and matching cushions on the bed, unfortunately the mattress needs replacing. Turning it only marginally... More

Excellent place to stay and explore Cornwall. Room very clean and tidy. We booked 2 rooms for Easter. Prices was acceptable and service... Amazing. Very helpful all the time. Ready to advise where to go where to eat. Located 8-10 min from city center - close enough to go there whenever you want far enough to allow you have a... More

Very helpful and caring staff, lovely newly furbished fresh & clean rooms with extremely comfortable beds - great breakfast and dining room - only con was that breakfast only served 8.15 - 9.15, extending to 10am would be an improvement.

Nice & convenient for St Ives however it's on a hill so if walking is a problem it might not be for you. It does have parking which is a real bonus especially in St Ives. The room was clean & plenty big enough although the shower not great but that's not a criticism more of an observation. Breakfast was... More

We had a really comfortable and enjoyable stay in the Nook last week. Couldn't fault the welcome, cleanliness and high standard of room. We were treated as though we were the only guests in the hotel....in fact we WERE the only guests there at the end of the season but they still laid everything on for us, even an extensive... More
