All 40 rooms face the sea and the views are spectacular. Our room looked out towards St Ives Harbour, and the restaurant looks out over Porthminster beach. Our room was comfortable if rather small. All the staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was rather mixed. My traditional English breakfast was perfect. My wife had smoked haddock with a poached egg.... More

We have stayed at the Pedn Olva before, not because it gives the best value for money, or that the food is anything special, but it, is most definitely, the Location of this Hotel, built into a rock, right on the beach, that commands the high prices that it charges. The Car Park is quite a walk away, and comes... More

Booked an evening meal at the hotel restaurant for 11 family members. There were issues with the food service, but the staff's attitude was perfection itself. Ok, the chef's may not have had their best night, but the way the situation was dealt with, would make Gordon Ramsay proud of this team. You are bound to get the odd moan... More

From booking in to leaving was a great experience...staff so freindly. Took less than a minute for me and my lurcher ( Wolfy ) to get on beach. Porth Minster. Watching the sea from our room was boss. Breakfasts were great my girlfriend loved the place( Tina ) our dog refused to leave ha. Can't wait to go back.

Went in here for coffee today. We sat at one table and it was filthy, crumbs sugar all over, so we moved to another. Again dirty and still had cups from the previous customers! The place was nearly empty so not as if they were busy and couldnt keep on top of things.You have to order at the bar and... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights in September. The location, the hotel,the bar,restaurant and food are excellent. I would definitely recommend. The rooms are very nice but not great, you certainly pay for the location and views.definitely not pushchair or wheelchair friendly.staff are great and very helpful. Had a great time but if I'm honest,slightly overpriced

The location of this hotel is definitely the best thing about it and it is certainly excellent in that respect with wonderful views. We had room with a sea view and use of a terrace which was lovely. However, other than the friendly staff, that's all that was good. The room was expensive especially in view of its size (very... More

Location is unbeatable both on the terrace or inside over the rocks looking over to the harbour and St Ives bay. Inside the air was a bit stuffy but the terrace was comfortable and caught some late sun. Rich jam, enough cream, decent tea, scones a little average shop bought. The service was friendly and efficient although possibly a little... More

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.
