The spa was also lovely, clean and had friendly, helpful staff....

It's difficult finding a good room/ hotel to stay in with a dog! I expected a sub standard room as I was a dog owner, which is tantamount to being a leper! Wrong! A good room, comfortable and very clean. Staff that were friendly and helpful. It's a difficult place to park in St Ives, this hotel has it's own...

We love the views from the sea facing rooms. St ives is a lovely destination all year around. Sometimes the service in the restaurant can be slow. The fish served at breakfast time is wonderful. All in all a good hotel.

During a recent return visit to the Harbour Hotel, St Ives (15/05 to 20/05/14) with my elderly parents we encountered poor service in respect of room cleanliness and low standard of food.

On the 30th April 2014 33 Mark Master Masons from all over Cornwall attended the 91st Tregenna Mark Master Masons Installation diner at this hotel.

My husband and I stayed here at the end of March. It was a special indulgent treat for us. The initial check-in was pleasant however we both felt very disappointed with our sea view room, the window was so dirty you couldn't appreciate the sea view, it evidently hadn't been cleaned for quite sometime.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
St Ives Harbour Hotel & Spa is perfectly positioned directly above Porthminster beach boasting stunning views across the water. Watch as the waves lap against the famous Godrevy Lighthouse in the distance and feel your troubles disappear. Explore the local harbour, as you meander through the cobbled streets, and then return for dinner at the Terrace Restaurant, serving up seasonal and local food, along with stunning sea views. The Harbour Spa provides the perfect hideaway, as you indulge in a soothing treatment and then unwind by the pool, gazing out to sea from the comfort of a lounger!
