I cannot recommend this hotel enough. Our room had a 180 degree view of the sea with comfortable beds, tea and coffee facilities and a bijoux bathroom with shower but no bath. The views from our upgraded room were incredible - see photographs. A dynamic scenery observing the St. Ives harbour shared with working Cornish fishermen and tourists playing on... More

We only visited here for a drink and a bite to eat but the terrace here is one not to be missed. In the sunshine it's a great place to sit and while away a few hours. Had a cranberry sauce and Brie sandwich on one occasion and it was absolutely delicious, the amount of Brie on it was super... More

Every year a few of us meet up, our usual thing is to go to a burger bar. Whilst reservations are not accepted we usually get a table in 30 mins or so. This year the wait would be 90 mins. Why not try Pedn Olva, we did. We had to wait a short time for a table, but was... More

I have never commented on another reviewers comments before as I feel all views are subjective - however I must do so on Dawn B's remarks on the breakfast. Having been in catering for over 30 years I can categorically state the mushrooms are FRESH! Enough said on that - we booked for 3 nights although only staying one, coming... More

Late review from a while back (2013) as were going to St Ives again and hope to stay here at least a night so reminded me. We were actually on our Honeymoon and the place we had booked into was a dump so we carried on to our favorite place - StIves. We were desperate as it was 10pm and... More

Just had a brilliant stay at the hotel. The location is excellent and the views are amazing. When we arrived our room should have been ready by 3pm but the guy on reception checked us all in took us down and left me and my friend outside our unfinished room for 20 minutes while the maids finished it off( that...

Thank you for taking the time to post your review of your stay at the Pedn Olva. Firstly I must apologise about the wait outside of your room whilst housekeeping were finishing off as guests should not be shown down until the Housekeeper has signed the room off. After the initial bumpy start I am delighted that everything else was... More

We stayed at Pedn Olva Hotel for 4 nights in a family room, enjoying the spectacular seaviews from our room and from any other place at the hotel. Nice and heated outdoor pool, the food was very good, the service and staff were extremely kind and helpful. A perfect stay. On the last day we had to leave to reach... More

We asked for a sea view table at 7.30 but turned up early, no problems - shown to table, given menus and then had a great simple meal - service was spot on and very friendly - highly recommend - there is a great atmosphere.

We stopped in for breakfast Wednesday 12 August 2013 and settled up on the terrace. The view was beautiful. We waited for sometime, even though we had spoken to the desk staff we weren't told that we needed to order from the restaurant (still don't know if that is the procedure?). So, I ordered two Cornish breakfasts, after I wandered... More
