I booked the suite in this hotel as a treat for my wife's birthday and it did not disappoint. The suite consisted of a large double bedroom with large king size bed, a very well appointed bathroom and a sitting room. The fixtures and fittings were high quality and all fully functional with adequate lighting within the bed and sitting... More

The new owners of the hotel were lovely and in their short time of ownership have made many positive changes! We absolutely loved our week away! The room was spacious and decorated nicely! The bathroom was a big plus as was the location of the hotel! We will definitely be coming back!

We stayed here for one night which was a Saturday. We had a room on a deal, £76 which we thought was cheap but we were told our double was going to be a small room. We were met by the owner who showed us straight to our room. The room was bigger than we expected with a small en-suite... More

We stayed here for a few nights in April and had a good time. The day we arrived was the same day that new owners had taken over the hotel, so there was a bit of commotion, but nothing too bad. The room was comfortable enough, and the cooked breakfasts were very good, with local produce used. It was very... More

I would definitely recommend this hotel. It is perfectly situated right near Porthminster Beach and only a short walk into St Ives. It is near the small train station as well, which has the best coastal views that I have ever seen from a train. The hotel itself is modern and clean and the staff are friendly and very helpful....

The Primrose Valley hotel is brilliant. We arrived and Jake was the most amazing host. I had taken my sister away for her birthday and booked a twin room. When we arrived Jake checked our room and unfortunately this was made up as a double, he rectified this and as soon as possible. Nothing was too much trouble. The hotel... More

Stayed here for one night and found it to be a lovely little boutique hotel. The modern decor was lovely, everything was very clean and fresh. The location is great, being one minute from the beach and five minutes walk along the sea front path to the main harbour. The staff were really very friendly and helpful. The locally sourced...
