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...

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...

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...

Our greeter was very helpful and answered all our questions and gave us a couple of good dining recommendations. Our room was a good size with enough storage space, a coffee and...

Just finished a 3 night stay at the Nook. The room was a good size and nicely furnished although the bed was too soft for my personal taste. The owners were friendly and they offered to give my the run down on St. Ives which wasn't necessary as I had visited before. Breakfast finished at 9.30 which if you like...

We were given a warm friendly welcome, the room was clean and comfy with modern decor. The room had TV and free wifi and hot drink making facilities.The breakfasts were great with lots of choice. Unlike most other guest houses in St Ives there was on site parking which meant we didn't need the car at all.
