We only stayed one night at the Nook and wished we could have stayed longer as it was great and would have loved to have seen more of St. Ives. The service by the owners was great and they were very helpful. The room was large, clean, comfortable and nicely decorated and quite modern. Breakfast was included and again really... More

Found this B & B on trip advisor and found this to be a clean, comfortable B & B. Breakfasts were OK - plenty of choice - would like to have seen free range eggs on the menu. The only reason we would not stay there again is we would try to find somewhere that had a view. But in... More

It was a little walk into town, but in the evening we got a taxi which was really cheaper considering st ives is quite trendy! the breakfast at the nook was... More

We arrived at the nook on a sunny September day and we not disappointed in our room. Modern decor, very comfortable and recently decorated. All mod cons including a great shower, a generous sized room with an extremely comfortable bed. Breakfast was excellent and would suit all tastes. The location is ideal, just about a 10 minute downhill walk to... More

Stayed 3 nights over a long weekend to explore St Ives. When we booked we were asked what time we'd expect to arrive, and on turning up we were given a warm welcome and a brief summary of some good tips (don't drive into St Ives, restaurant suggestions, good pubs etc.) along with the normal 'breakfast is at...' stuff. We... More

From arrival to depature I could not fault The Nook. John was lovely and very friendly and helpful. We initially stayed in Room 10 for 2 nights which had sea views and was clean, bright and fresh. We decided to stay an extra night and was moved to Room 5 which was a little bit larger, still bright and airy.... More

We been going to St. Ives for 20 years, and stayed in lots of places and hotels, but the Nook has to be said is great value for money. It's well run, very comfortable, very clean. What I like best is the host is there if you need them, but not in your face, and you're made to feel very... More

We considered 'The Nook' a lucky find. It is off the main 'drag' near the top of the hill. We arrived and parked no problem,which is a big plus in St.Ives. The facilities were explained to us and we were taken to our room. The room and bathroom was very comfortable and clean.The room is not spacious and the sea-view... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights as we were attending a local wedding. I would class this as a modern guest house, rather than a hotel. It was very clean, with all mod cons and the room and bed were comfortable, apart from the heavy duvet, which you didn't need because the heating was on in the... More

We stayed 2 nights at The Nook. We enjoyed our stay. The hotel is a little out of the way, and not close to the town area or water at all, but its a nice walk down and a cheap taxi ride back. Our host was very friendly, and accomodating. Our room was a decent size. They only change towels... More
