3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great location for a hotel, smack bang over and above the sea front with good views of the harbour. However the hotel is dated and the rooms reflect this, with the hand basin in the room and the shower/toilet 'cupboard' was a little cosy for our liking, however the shower itself worked well. Staff were very helpful however beware that... More

Have not stayed in the hotel but visit the bar daily when staying in the area, which is quite often. Sitting in the closed in terrace with panoramic windows there is a spectacular view of the harbour and St Ives Bay. The bar staff are usually quite friendly and amenable. However, the cleanliness of this area could be better, but... More

From the moment we arrived, we couldn't have been made more welcome . The food was great, breakfast, lunch and dinner, though sadly the excellent specials were not mentioned. Though the rooms are expensive, they are normal for St. Ives at that level. Our room was beautiful and immaculate, with a balcony and view over Porthminster beach. Location convenient for... More

This room is truly terrible. The bathroom is so small it's impossible to bend over at the sink to clean your teeth with the door closed. Access from the hotel is unsafe and unsatisfactory down a steep metal staircase covered in unpleasant AstroTurf. It was even more dangerous as it had rained heavily, so the steps were slippy. When we... More

The hotel has a roof terrace which is open to the public, and it is a lovely place to sit, overlooks St Ives Bay and harbour - drinks are a little expensive, but the view is worth it on a sunny day. There are sunshades if needed. Haven't stayed at the hotel, but the roof terrace is well worth a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pedn Olva, with the sea only thirty feet below and flanked by golden sands, is founded on blue-black granite rocks on the southern shores of St. Ives Harbour and Bay. Contemporary, romantic and breathtaking are but a few ways to describe the Pedn Olva, with its 29 distinctive bedrooms, restaurant, bar, terraces and outdoor heated swimming pool that make it an ideal stay for a getaway break, special meal or relaxing lunch. The plethora of windows facing the sea allows our guests to be as close as you can get to floating on the sea without leaving dry land. A safe haven for watching winter storms in front of a granite open fire, or seeing dolphins and seals playing in the bay from our sun drenched terraces. ... more   less
