Perfect location and (we booked the Suite) very spacious and modern room with every facility, we were even able to borrow free DVD's at Reception The bathrooom was particularly luxurious and very relaxing. The location is idyllic, close to the beach, the putting green, the beach cafes and bars, and is only a 5 minute walk into St Ives. It... More

Location is everything with this hotel. Parking is also a massive bonus. Good breakfast and nicely decorated rooms. we were in room 9 and this is rather small. The sink is situated outside the bathroom as there is not enough room inside. The sink is very large and there is a problem with the hot water flow. By the time... More

Another excellent stay at Primrose Valley and our thanks to Jake and the staff for making us so welcome. The hotel is perfectly situated for us with parking right above Porthminster beach and only a short walk into the town. Room 6 is really spacious and comfortable with a huge bed, power shower and a great view of the beach... More

We recently stayed in Room 3 at the Primrose Valley. Very difficult journey in to find the hotel as it is down a steep narrow lane with little signage. The hotel faces the train tracks and a tennis court, with a view of the sea beyond. On arrival, we were greeted by half dead plants and an univiting outdoor space... More

Had a great week looked after by great staff. My hubby likes his bacon burnt and usually it takes a couple of tries before the chef gets the message - but not here! His breakfast was perfect every morning, as was everyone's breakfast. Our bedroom had a big bow window with a settee and had a great view of the... More

We spent four nights in May in Primrose Valley Hotel. The friendly and competent staff made our stay very enjoyable. The breakfast with locally grown foodstuffs was excellent. The Hotel is centrally placed and close to the beach. We will definitely return.

Wonderful welcome, lovely surroundings, excellent breakfasts. Good sized bedroom but slightly cramped shower room - maybe we were unlucky. Near to one of the best beaches and best restaurant on the beach in Britain.

Recently stayed for a long weekend with my wife, and we were well looked after. Any queries were dealt with promptly. It is a very quiet and small hotel, ten rooms, so after an evening out, we'd be the only ones in the bar, and had a great laugh with Jake and Kim on their respective nights. We didn't pack... More

We stayed here recently for our post wedding 'mini-moon' and I think it is safe to say that we have mixed feelings. Positives first. The hotel is really near to the beach and to St Ives. Breakfast was really nice and it was fantastic to see the locally sourced ingredients were a real selling point. They knew it was our... More
