Wonderful guesthouse - I could not be happier with my stay. Wonderful staff, lovely breakfast and a nice quiet area, a bit off the busy town. I liked the outside patio and the lounge for chilling in the evening, and my room was small but functional - I had no need for more. Nice power shower and excellent wi-fi.

Staff very helpful. Rooms very clean and good facilities. B&B is at the top of hill (fine for me) but would require transport (e.g. taxi) into St Ives for less mobile people. Breakfast is only served for 1 hour (8.15 to 9.15) in the morning.

I stayed here for one night on a flying visit to St Ives, it isn't central but some people will see that as a bonus. Spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. Very quiet at night. Not for the unfit/infirm as it is a 10-15 min walk uphill, although I loved the fact it was only a few minutes downhill to Porthmeor.... More

Not central but worth the 15 minute walk from the town centre (up a steep hill) The Nook is a wonderful spotlessly clean little hotel. Rooms are well furnished with everything you would expect to find in much larger hotels even down to a refridgerator and DVD player. Breakfast is faultless as is the overall experience.

Myself and Boyfriend stayed here for 4 nights. It was lovely we had a deluxe double room as we were there for 4 nights and it was very spacious, the bathroom was quite narrow but it was fine as there's only one of you in there at a time anyway! The owners were fab, very welcoming and polite. The breakfast... More

It was a last minute decision to go to St Ives over the bank holiday weekend so would be slim picking in terms of affordable accommodation. The Nook is a modern ten plus room BnB, quite modern looking with very friendly staff. We stayed in family room 11 which overlooks the back garden. There is a double bed with two... More

From the friendly staff who welcomed us upon arrival to the comfortable relaxing room The Nook was a wonderful experience. We arrived mid afternoon to a perfectly clean room. The facilities for the size of the hotel were great even with a bath tub you could relax in. The view from the room was over the roofs down down into... More

Overall, 'The Nook' offered us a really great stay. With a modern, quiet and well-equipped bedroom (we stayed in room 5), quiet surroundings and friendly owners, my partner and I left deeply impressed and thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay in late April 2016. While the serving time for breakfast could have run a little longer than an hour (8.15... More

I first had to change a 2 night booking to just one night. I then had to change my arrival time. The Nook staff accepted these changes admirably. The room was decorated to a high standard and breakfast was wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble. I can recommend this B&B wholeheartedly.

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
