Brilliant position in a tucked away location, don't worry about the near by railway line, it's a tiny train and you wouldn't know it was there! Good value, booked through Booking.com The room was comfortable, clean with a great bed Ample and tasty breakfast Eco-friendly

This hotel has a great location but unfortunately I feel the rooms are very small for the price. We had the small double room which cost more than the budget double but was still very small. During our first night we were disturbed by what sounded like pipes banging and the hotel was very accommodating in moving us to another... More

The staff here went beyond in helping us explore Cornwall. Our room was beautifully appointed with an ultra comfortable bed and nice linens. Our breakfast was excellent which included home baked bread. We had a wonderful stay and would return!

While this hotel advertises it location on the beach, we had to crane our necks to see the water from the balcony. It does not have a lift! We had to lug our suitcases up the stairs to our room; no service available. One of our rooms was quite cramped and the shower sprayed water all over the floor. Food... More

We didn't get the double room with private decked patio we booked. Instead we were given Room 8 - the smallest double in hotel (according to the measurements in their write-up), with no outside space. They blamed it on booking.com, and refunded the price difference...but surely the price we pre-paid should have "matched" the larger room we wanted, not the... More

Stayed at Primrose valley hotel for one night. Very warm welcome on arrival with complimentary coffee. Staff very helpful. Peaceful location just a short pleasant walk to town centre with lots of shops and galleries. Hotel is very comfortable and breakfast was excellent. Will stay here again. Staff make all the difference.

This is a great place close to the sea front. My lovely well appointed room, had everything you had ask for and fantastic views across the beach. The breakfast was generous and very tasty, served by wonderful staff. Thank you to Jake and the team for a memorable stay in St Ives. My only negative is, I didn't stay long... More

On arriving we were welcomed by a lovely man who gave us a free coffee and took our bags to our room. The downstairs is beautiful and very posh! When we were shown to our room we were both slightly disappointed. We were paying good money for this room and it was just a bit too small. We did ask... More
