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.

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....
