Have been here on a number of occasions and visiting out of season has always been a feature of winter breaks in St Ives. Very welcoming and attentive staff. Reasonably priced light lunch of good quality from a decent menu would encourage us to return for an evening meal. Setting is as ever, quite spectacular.

This is a truly exceptional hotel perched right over the water with incredible views and the sound of waves breaking on the rocks below. Our room, though small was beautifully decorated and the space was well thought out with a neat shower room and wardrobes. Views over the beach were sublime and our balcony had the most amazing views out...

St Ives is one of my favourite places but I'd never stayed at this place until now. I stayed one night on a business trip and was I ncredibly impressed. There is no car park but the station car park is situated immediately above the hotel so no real issue. The receptionist was on her first ever day at the...

Great hotel with probably the best views in st Ives with its cliff edge position. My only concern is dogs allowed in eating areas. I am a dog lover but there are times and places, a romantic restaurant with dogs walking through didn't feel right.

Thank you for your review of your visit to the Pedn Olva. We are indeed spoiled by our location with its stunning views from every aspect.

The food is a bit pricey - for example fish and chips and mushy peas £13.50 - pie of the day £13.50, but vouchers are available and if you join the St Austell Brewery club you receive a voucher for a bottle of house wine during the month of your birthday. What cannot be beaten is the spectacular setting, with...

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
