The Nook has a quiet location 10 min walk uphill from the town. It is a 4 star rated hotel (more nice B&B) with a large TV area downstairs and a breakfast room next to it. There is also a patio out the back if the weather is good although is onlooked by terraced houses. The rooms are not very...

We arrived and were shown to a TINY room, which the guy admitted was normally only assigned to people staying for a night or 2, and we were staying for 5. There was only a bed and a chest of drawers, but no dressing table or chair. We had to store half our luggage in the car just so that...

We decided to finish a week of campervanning with a stay in The Book before heading North. As we were on a budget, we stayed in Room 6 (one of the smallest rooms), which suited us well as a base to lay our heads- clean and well-maintained. It was great to be able to check in at our requested time...

Stayed here attending a course at the St Ives school of painting. Single room, spotlessly clean with a great ensuite shower and a good choice at breakfast. It is at the top of the town, so expect to do some walking but a bonus is that they have parking..which is great in St Ives!

Lovely, centrally located, hideaway within easy walking distance of St Ives centre, with the added benefit of on-site parking. The hosts were lovely and very accommodating. A great find, I will definitely return.

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights and had a lovely stay. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast was really good value for money. Our room was not the biggest but was to a very comfortable standard and had everything we could wish for. The only negative I can think of was the mattress...

Booked in January for two nights in July. I thought £110. per night was pricey and I still do. Very clean and well decorated throughout. Very friendly staff. Nice lounge with TV, outdoor patio and pleasing breakfast room. Very nice breakfast served. Wi-Fi was good. We had room 10 which the website describes as cosy. I guess that is code...
