We stayed in a dog friendly room in this hotel overlooking the beach with reasonably easy access to the beach. However the room was very small (two single beds) and hardly room for two dog beds and certainly no room for luggage! The room overlooked the hotel pool which was closed when we stayed there as it was out of... More

A 3 night break to distract my daughter from her upcoming GCSE results, and what an amazing break it was! The cabin room we had was perfect in size for the two of us, but one thing we didn't expect was the amazing views! From the bedroom stunning views of Porthminster beach and from the bathroom St Ives harbour. The... More

Wow! What a view from the bar or roof terrace! If you are nearby you have to pop in for a drink or good just to take the view in. The bar staff are very friendly and serve good drinks. The outdoor rattan furniture could do with replacing as it has become very saggy which makes it uncomfortable to sit... More

Food lovely, staff great but overworked and no time to clear tables or clean up dining room floor between day time meals and evening dinner service. Took over an hour for our main course to arrive and no staff in site to chase it up. Felt like walking out on this occasion. When staff were seen they were rushing around... More

Myself and my husband booked one night her for a special Anniversary treat on a Saturday night. Our room was lovely and the views were stunning. We had the evening meal and breakfast and couldn't fault it at all. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The pool was gorgeous for swimming in, overlooking the beach and sea. The 2... More

On family recommendation we had a breakfast at the PednOlva hotel this August. The view from the dining bar was spectacular. That was the only positive. The welcome was non-existent and the service was slow and uninterested in our custom. The food promised much on the menu but when it arrived delivered very little. Bland, minuscule portions, vastly overpriced. Won't... More

We've been to St Ives many times over a number of years and the Pedn Olva is always the place we look forward to and visit first to sit on the roof terrace - the best views around by far. For the first time we have been disappointed. Tables dirty with uncleared glasses and plates everywhere on the three times... 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
