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

We visited the Pedn Olva Restaurant, St. Ives whilst on holiday & thought it was great. The service was very good. We were served by Jamie, Claire & Camilla throughout the evening. They were very professional & good at their job. Very polite, friendly & genuine. We were impressed. The view from our table was the best. Sea views. Amazing.... More

The food was excellent. One of the best poached salmon I've had. Sensible portions meant 3 courses were doable and each one was excellent in both taste and display. The service was friendly and attentive but not overly so. Would happily go back. If you can get a table with a window view or in the day eat on the... More

I stayed at the Pedn-Olva with my husband this week, after arriving on the ferry from the Scilly Isles quite late. The hotel is perfectly situated in St Ives bay and overlooks the sea. We had a sea view room, which was very clean and comfortable. We ate dinner in the hotel, which was fine and the views overlooking the... More

We stayed here in a cabin with balcony. The staff were generally friendly and helpful. We ate at the restaurant and the food was good but the service was on the slow side.

This used to be a hotel. Great location, great staff, good food. A disaster that it is now a pub with rooms. Ok, stay here for the good points but.....
