We have been staying at the Nook 3 or 4 times a year, for the past 5 years, whilst on shortbreaks to Cornwall, from Bristol.
Ever since the very first visit John and Joan have done nothing but make us all fell very welcome. We have been so impressed each time we visit that we have, on separate occasions, taken my mother and the in-laws for a stay at the Nook; to "show off" our prize find!!
All the rooms are always spotlessly clean and well appointed, with everything you need for a relaxing, comfortable base for the duration of your stay. The whole hotel was fully refitted the close-season before we first visited the Nook and every close-season since the owners (John and his wife) undertake redecoration, carpeting and repairs where needed.
We have stayed in room 2 and room 11. Room eleven is a family room, with beds for 4 guests, while room 2 is a large double room that has the benefit of a sofa-bed, which, as we only have 1 child, is perfectly acceptable. Room 2 also has a sea view from 1 of it's 2 windows!
The breakfast selection is superb, with everything from cereal through to a full English, with the likes of croissants and salmon completing the roster! Whatever you choose, it'll be quality produce and will taste delicious!
John and the team do a great job - we look forward to seeing you again soon!
1 or 2 reviewers have mentioned that they thought the Nook was a bit pricey - well, we cannot find anything close to this standard, with on-site parking for anything like this price! And believe me, we keep looking; just so that we can feel smug about what a good deal we're getting!!
