My daughter and I couldn't stay where we usually stay but The Nook turned out to be a bonus! Hidden away in a quiet place at the top of a hill The Nook is a very clean, comfortable place with a modern feel. Our single rooms were small but compact with everything we needed with good quality toiletries (even a...

Instead of buying unnecessary Christmas gifts for each other, we decided to book a few days away for New Year. The Nook, whilst quite expensive compared with other guest houses we've stayed in, was first class. Staff very friendly, room was warm and cosy, very clean and comfortable and the breakfasts very excellent!

We stayed here for 2 nights. The room was lovely, clean and warm (if not a little to warm but that was soon rectified by letting in the sea air). Breakfast was nice. Very nice host. Parking available at cost of £2.00 per night. 10 minute walk to the harbour and town but 15-20 minute walk back due to the...

Cozy and clean B&B with a great breakfast, vegetarian option is also available! If you don't mind up hill walking (around 10 minutes from the town), it's really recommended! The owners are really helpful and friendly!

The main aspect that I loved about this b&b was the friendly and welcoming hosts and how comfortable and clean the room was! Breakfast was also very yummy and will definitely be back! Thank you so much

We recently spent a few days in St Ives and stayed at The Nook. On arrival, the owner of the B & B was welcoming and friendly. Despite being advertised as a double room, it was rather small with very little room either side of the bed, in honesty, it was no more than a single, with a double bed...

We took a small but functional room that was spotlessly clean and no issues at all. Just 15 minutes out of town, the walk into town takes you via some very steep but quant alleyways into the harbour area. The less able may struggle but it is only a £3.50 taxi ride back up to the B&B. The breakfast is...

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.
