A well appointed B&B with modern fixtures and fittings. We stayed for the bank holiday weekend and were delighted with the quality of the food and range on offer at breakfast. Locally sourced and / or ethical products are used and portion size is reasonable. Not cheap but we thought good value for money. Located towards the top of town...

I stayed at the Nook for 3 nights recently and we were greeted with a warm welcome, the breakfast is lovely and a wide selection on offer. It was our first time in st Ives and they offered us advice on where to go and what to see. I would definatley recommend this B&B and will be staying there again....

We stayed at the Nook for a week in August on a family holiday. Everything we could want was available if not already in our room. Location OK but don't wear flip flops in the evening if your walking back!! Great breakfast as well ;0) Many thanks John, Joan and team. See you next year. The Cook Family

My partner and I stayed here in June and on the whole had a very good stay. Arriving after 9pm, I had to wait for the owner to come and let me in as they don't live on site - this wasn't a massive problem as they only lived about 10 minutes away. Located about about 10 minutes walk from...

Great breakfast and the location although up hill from the 'hub' of St Ives, it was quiet and provided parking.our host and staff was wonderful,...

I have to say this is the nicest most relaxed bed and breakfast I have stayed in. The room was super clean. Decorated nicely, beds were comfortable everything was the way it should be. Breakfast was really nice both mornings they even catered for what the baby wanted to eat. I have to agree with people about the hill though...

Stayed 3 nights and couldn't find any fault at all with the basics - the room, the breakfast and general level of service are all excellent. The owner is (in my humble opinion, but I am perhaps a grumpy old s*d) a tad too friendly and chatty. I do have one thing to mention though. I accept that this is...

My wife and I have just returned home after spending 10 nights at the Nook and I have to say that everything about the Nook is top quality, the rooms, the staff, the location and of course the breakfast are all brilliant. We had to change things around a little at late notice, our fault, and John was more than...

Take a dash of contemporary design, the comfort of a good nights sleep, the friendliness of the host who doesn't wear a watch and the satisfaction of a very tasty breakfast. Mix that with the delights of an artist's paradise and you have a very cosy combination at the Nook in St Ives. Thank you and we hope to be...
