Back for my annual visit to the a Pedn Olva, I wish it could be more often like it was a few years ago but with a partner living in Japan the purse strings are stretched. As always an excellent visit this time with my partner who got a warm welcome as I did particularly from those who remembered him... More

Spent 3 nights in the suite (state room) and totally bowled over by the fantastic views of St Ives. Could not fault our room. Would definitely visit again. We dined on the first night of our stay and wasn't overly impressed with the food, however, there are some very good resturants within easy walking distance.

We stayed at Pedn Olva for four nights at the beginning of December. The view from our balcony was stunning as was the view from the dining room. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious, second to none, the best we have ever tasted. A wonderful hotel and we hope to return.

Many thanks for your review, following your return visit. Unfortunately we no-longer have a “set” tariff, we offer a best available rate on all our rooms and packages, depending on the season and availability. The £12 a night you were quoted for breakfast, would be to change from a “room only” package not including breakfast to a “Bed & Breakfast”... More

The hotel is small and friendly. Do not be fooled by the outside-it is clean and welcoming on the inside! We stayed two nights in a small cabin room -very cabinesque-with a balcony and WONDERFUL view of the Atlantic; st Ives: and Godrevy light house. The sea was directly below the balcony!! Food was good and location superb. We will... More

I needed a quick night in a hotel in West Cornwall and happened on the Pedn Olva. I paid only £53 for single occupancy of a double room, so I wasn't expecting it to be marvellous, as it seemed rather cheap (it is November though!) What a surprise. The hotel was beautifully situated right above the sea, with fantastic views... More

Sat outside on the terrace in 3 inches of water. Sun was blazing. Overlooking a disgustingly dirty swimming pool. We Ordered cream tea and two coffees. Cream tea arrived 5 mins before coffees and it was terrible. A timble full of solidified clotted cream with minimal jam. Scones were so dry and no plates!!! On the plus side the coffee... More

Thank you for your review. We appreciate you taking the time to pass on your comments. Due to our location and experiencing high volumes of horrid weather lately, we do advise customers that our terrace areas will be soggy. Subsequently we have taken the decision to close all outside terrace areas. As there is minimal demand to use our pool... More

Can only comment on the food. We visited on Saturday lunchtime. Quite quiet, fabulous views across to St Ives. Very friendly staff and service was remarkably quick. Food was good and my wife thoroughly enjoyed her winter warmer cocktail. You pay a little bit more maybe but it's worth it for the view. We will certainly visit again, it must... More
