Today on a day trip to St Ives we passed this place walking from the train station. Having looked at the menu we decided it would make a good place for lunch. We were not disappointed! Opting to sit inside due to it being sightly breezy we had a wonderful panoramic view and food that just hit the spot -... More

Breakfast on terrace overlooking beach and sea. Breakfast absolutely gorgeous and nice selection including eggs benedict. Swimming pool small but heated and decking around hotel great for an outdoor... More

Ideal for an afternoon or early evening drink on the sun terrace. Lovely views over the bay, friendly staff and good facilities. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend. Had the pulled pork burger to share with lovely mustard coleslaw.

Me and my husband have just returned from our mini moon at the Pedn Olva in St Ives and although we had a lovely break we were slightly disappointed with our stay. We booked the honeymoon suite and the view is absolutely breathtaking! The room was really lovely and so much bigger than the photos online. There is a lovely... More

We had a lovely meal here whilst looking out over the bay very friendly staff and very reasonably priced would recommend and would go back there. A well located hotel which is open to no residents for meals and drinks with picturesque views of st Ives from the roof terrace and restaurant.

We only came her for drinks but would love to stay. The terrace over looking the beach is lovely. The slightly pricey drinks are worth it for the view. Inside is also nice. A bit like a ship. Lovely place to pass an hour and catch the sun with a drink and fabulous view.

We were allocated a room with a balcony overlooking Porthminster Beach, the view was simply as good as it gets. The room itself was spacious and clean, as was the bathroom.
