We stayed there one night, during our trip from penzance to St Yves. They accomodated perfectly for our late check in in a very smooth way. Plenty of space to park. Easy to locate. Very central. Cosy and quiet. We got the groud floor room. Super spacious with a big bed, sofa, dressing, all kind of amneties and a very...

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.

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....

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...

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...
