Having booked a balcony cabin we were very disappointed in the size of the room. It was very, very small & the picture on hotel website is very misleading. There was nowhere to place your case, the stand the hotel provide to rest your case whilst unpacking had to kept in the small bathroom throughout the duration of the stay.... More

The food is good and the views are superb. This is also a nice place to stop for a coffee and gaze at the sea. Or go onto the upper deck to relax with a drink in the sunshine. I didn't stay at the hotel but I have eaten there often and stopped for coffee even more regularly, it is... More

We stayed a night here and everything was fantastic! The view from our balcony, room 29, looked across the harbour with the waves below. It truly is the best location in St. Ives! The bar staff were very friendly and happy to chat and the breakfast was top quality with a very comprehensive selection. It really was a treat to... More

It's tradition on arrival for a day trip to st Ives to make first port of call here! With stunning views over st Ives, lovely terraces to sit and relax on its just a perfect place to sit and unwind in the sun. I would imagine staying here in the rooms would be lovely.

Managed to get a table on the day for 8 which isn't easy in St Ives...and was sat in the main restaurant overlooking Porthminster Beach. The food, service and staff were all fantastic and very reasonable I thought. Would visit again.

Visited on the 21st of July. We have enjoyed visiting the roof top terraces in recent years, to have a drink, relax and take in the stunning view. This year however, we found the terraces to be sub-standard. The tables were covered in empty glasses, half eaten food and rubbish strewn around the floor. The smell from unemptied ash trays...

Stopped for a drink here on a hot summers day and sat on the roof terrace seats. Plenty of outside seating with really stunning views right over the sea and across to St Ives bay. Is popular but seats and tables become available quick as there are so many so you won't wait long - One of the best sea... More

First off, this hotel is in an amazing location - very close to the main harbour restaurants but just so slightly removed in the warren that it feels like an escape. The location is wonderful. So are the staff. The focus on customer service is wonderful, and all staff were pleasant, helpful and went out their way to help -... 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
