Top B&B
Very clean, tidy and well run B&B. Although the room we had (No. 4) was not massive it did the job for two of us for a two night stay and gave us a peaceful night's sleep each night. Very comfortable and clean throughout. Bathroom was also clean and had a good shower which was warm and powerful. Nice lounge to sit in and relax if required. Breakfast was very good with a range of yoghurt, cereal and juices before a hot option of full English/vegetarian/omelette/eggs etc. Sampled the full English, omelette and scramble eggs and salmon and wasn't disappointed at all. Everything was well cooked, brought to the table not long after ordering, plentiful and tasted great. It certainly set us up for each say we were there. Car parking was available although advisable to notify the B&B in advance to secure a space - more relevant in the busier summer months. We could just about make out the sea from our room over the top of neighbouring properties. Only think missign was a dressing table that perhaps could have fitted in alongside the chest of drawers in the room. St Ives itself is only a short 10 minute stroll from the B&B although does involve a steep hill - although this would likely apply to most accommodation in the area with the nature of St Ives being hilly - even the town itself. The biggest asset to the Nook was the staff. We received a very warm welcome and left to feel that nothing would be too much trouble. All in all we had a great stay and would definitely return
