4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

Booked the hotel because of its location......this did not disappoint!! Opting for a balcony room (room 32) we had views over the harbour and town which were well worth our 6 hour journey to St Ives. The rooms were fresh and clean. Housekeeping were attentive, coming into the room every day to change towels clean the toilet and re make... More

The hotel is perfectly situated to enable viewing of the adjacent beech and St Ives bay. The views are stunning. Our room was compact but very cosy with all usual amenities and a beautiful shared balcony (white glazed partitions between each room with access to go around) it still felt private and we had no issues with any neighbours. The... More

The benchmark is pretty high at St Ives and Pedn Olva comes a fair way from hitting the standard. Reception staff were friendly but other than that, the place is a little run down, bordering on shabby. The rooms are small, the balcony rooms have little privacy from each other. The beds are soft, I stay in lots of hotels... More

Although we have never stayed in the Pedn Olva as guests, on our last two visits to St Ives - where we take a short break biannually - we have been to dinner at the restaurant for that ‘special meal’. The setting, right against the sea with views across two of the town’s beautiful bays, is superb and is more... More

This hotel restaurant has a wonderful position overlooking the sea and nearby beach and the food was very good. However, the staff are useless. They were talking behind the bar when we tried to get served and we had to interrupt them as it would appear that their conversation was more important than service. None of the used crockery and...

We didn't stay this year as all the balcony rooms were sold out for the nights we wanted. However, whilst staying with friends in St Ives we called in for lunch ad sat on the terrace in the sun. I had a large halloumi salad, which was delicious, but tiny- glad I didn't order the small! We'll be back!!

My Husband has already given a review for this hotel which we stayed at two days ago, so I will not say much. A number of things he forgot to mention was that in fact this hotel is owned by a brewery St Austell brewery in fact, he had also failed to mention they own and run a number of... More

Having travelled all over the world and stayed in numerous places, I don't normally write Tripadvisor reviews all the time unless I feel I have some thing to say that will be of real benefit to others. My Wife and I live in Cornwall and the reason for this review is that the Hotel in question is in St Ives... More

We are returning guests to the Pedn Olva every year, we love everything about the hotel, the location, the food and the great service we get from the staff, we book room 23 every year as it's the largest family room and right near the pool, the kids love it. The beds are so comfy and it really is the... More

The Pedn Olva hotel has always been a favourite of mine to call into for a refreshing drink but on a recent visit I was very disappointed with how scruffy the upstairs balcony was. The tables were covered in dirty plates and glasses and the flooring was smelly , rain soaked and quite disgusting. Due to this I will not... More
