We had an excellent stay at Primrose Valley Hotel. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The view from our room across to St. Ives harbour was beautiful. The breakfast each morning was superb with a variety of self-serve options as well as an extensive menu all-included. Great value for money, highly recommended.

We had limited options during half term and finally opted for this one which was fine if hard to find. They had parking, free wifi, not fast, and an excellent breakfast. As we were very tired of the full English we enjoyed the cereals, fruit, cheeses and breakfast breads on offer very much. We were close enough for an easy... More

The family who took over the hotel in 2015 made us feel hugely welcome and valued and were just lovely to chat to. There were so many little extras like free cake in the evenings (delicious). Really excellent customer care! We understand that they will be renovating in time for the 2016 season to make Primrose Valley an even more... More

I stayed at the Primrose Valley for a couple of nights recently and definitely plan to return. I was welcomed by delicious fresh brownies and friendly staff, and shown up to my room which had a lovely view out to sea. The bed was comfy and the breakfast hearty and it was literally a couple of minutes walk to the... More

Felt at home straight away. Lovely rooms and delicious breakfast with loads of choice. Homemade cake every afternoon to take up to your room and enjoy with a cuppa overlooking the views of the harbour. They kindlyblaundered a pair of very sodden jeans for us which was very much appreciated. Will definitely stay there again.

A three night stay at this lovely resort costs more than three nights in London so we were looking for something special. Literally a few minutes walk from the railway station we found the place to be modern and with a delightful room on the top floor. The bed was very good along with a modern bathroom, but with a...

We booked this hotel for one night as we were going to a wedding reception at Tregenna Castle and it was a bit pricey to stay there! This hotel was just down the road and I am so glad we stayed here. We had a double room with a balcony and sea view. Room was clean and spacious. The staff... More

The new owners are doing the place up so not everywhere is renovated but the places they have already done are superb. The public rooms are absolutely brilliant, very much a boutique hotel in the making. The room I had was on the top floor with superb views over the beach and sea. The room was spotless . Breakfast was... More

Lovely bijou hotel, enthusiastic, friendly and helpful staff, everything you could want from a breakfast, great location minutes from a beautiful beach and the Harbour. And to top that daily freshly baked cakes still warm from the oven offered freely to guests on their return from a hard day of holidaying.

We had a great holiday in St. Ives and stayed at the Primrose Valley hotel for 4 nights at the end of September. Our room with a sea-view was lovely - spacious and well furnished. The breakfasts were excellent with loads of choice. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful and we would fully recommend staying here.
