Super hotel, excellent value in a fantastic location! We loved our stay here. Staff were really friendly, the WIFI actually worked (!) and the location was brilliant. Great value for money - would highly recommend!

A 2 night stay but I wish it were much longer. I had no idea where this place was as the website cannily omits to show any images of its surroundings or the hotel itself from the outside. Despite this oddity I responded to the monetary value (compared to the ridiculous prices of nearby Ped'n Olva) and we were not... More

Myself and my husband have just returned from a lovely weekend away at Primrose Valley. We stayed in the Suite which was really lovely and full of nice touches to make our stay special, including fresh milk in the mini fridge. The bathroom was amazing, very spacious with a fab roll top bath and a rainfall shower. We also loved... More

We have just returned from a two night break at this charming little hotel. We can honestly say it was just lovely in every respect. My husband took me there for my birthday, as I have been ill for over a year and it was recommended to us by our son who had stayed there recently. The staff, the bedroom,... More

This lovely little hotel was ideal for our overnight stay in St. Ives. Finding the lane in was a bit difficult, went back and forth a couple of times before realising the road down was next to Draycott Terrace. The lane also takes you down to Porthmeor Beach, turn left just before the beach cafe, drive for about 50 yards... More

Being greeted with the offer of a pot of tea was a wonderfully welcoming start to a short stay at this lovely hotel situated at the foot of a narrow, steep driveway under a railway line. The staff manage to combine professionalism and politeness with friendliness and attention to detail which results in a relaxing break where, in deepest Cornwall,... More

Once we found the hotel (make sure you have good directions) we were extremely pleased with our choice. Friendly staff for whom nothing was too much trouble, small enough to be homely but big enough to have a boutique hotel feel with quirky features, and a virtually flat half mile walk to walk to the centre of St Ives from...

This is a lovely quirky hotel. Everything was spotless and comfortable, food was delicious, service was efficient and friendly. Perfect location for a night away, just by the beach and the sea view was beautiful. Would definitely go back. We didn't miss the road in and yes it was a bit hair raising driving down the road, but how fab... More

Although on our second Groupon visit, we were still treated like royalty and nothing was too much for the warm and friendly staff. Our breakfasts and evening Cornish platters were tasty and beautifully presented with quality food. Our room, although a little small as it was in the eaves, was beautifully presented and held all that we needed. It had... More

The breakfast was superb and plenty off it, staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Decor and furnishings very tasteful. The only... More
