I was just paying a flying one night stay to the Pedn Olva, but, like my previous visits, wasn't disappointed. As usual, my room had a stunning view out to sea and across to St. Ives harbour. The sea was crashing on to the rocks below my room and I spent a lot of time just watching that. There were... More

I visited the restaurant of this hotel with a friend for lunch on a cold, cloudy day in January. The views are stunning and we sat overlooking Porthminster beach. The staff were friendly and efficient. Sadly the food, when it arrived, wasn't very good. We ordered fish and chips as we were looking over the beach. The fish wasn't particularly... More

We have just returned from our second stay at the Pedn Olva and I can highly recommend it. Great location, very helpful and pleasant staff, nice rooms though the standard room on our first stay was a bit small with a very small shower room but the great view of the sea made up for it and a lovely breakfast...

We had a great weekend here for both of our birthdays. We stayed in a standard room which was small but perfectly formed and beautifully fresh and clean. The bed was very comfortable and the view was amazing. Dinner in the restaurant was perfect. The service we received from Jess and Jamie was the best we have had in a... More

Enjoyed the view over a coffee. Staff ok but couldn't order a scone and butter on its own. Yes I know its not on the till and you can only have a scone as a cream tea but it can't be that difficult to do. Small things can sometime make a difference, in this case we will just go somewhere... More

We booked a last minute weekend break direct with the hotel and received a good DBB rate (dinner included on the first night). We parked in the station car park above the hotel and when we checked in we were given a car park pass for a numbered space. Our room was number 28. A small but beautiful room with... More

The hotel and the restaurant are beautifully located in St. Ives. Stunning views, plenty of seatting spaces inside and on the outside (just watch out for hungry seagulls!). The food was quite tasty but overpriced for what it was. The wine selection was ok. The service was quite slow as well. However if you are in the area it is... More
