We booked our room at quite short notice for a relaxing getaway at the end of summer and couldn't have made a better choice! Primrose valley has a lovely peaceful and relaxing vibe, the overall beachy feel of the decor is spot on and with clean rooms, spotless bathrooms, lovely breakfasts and friendly staff it was a perfect short getaway....

We attended St Ives for a friend’s wedding in the Harbour Hotel and Spa, which was a steep but, simple five minute walk above the Primrose Valley Hotel. We chose the Primrose Valley hotel from what seemed a high quality hotel for a romantic weekend getaway, not just a simple bed for the night; therefore it cost an above average... More

Location was amazing - next to the beach. When I mean next to I mean next to. Own parking which is essential as its a nightmare to park anywhere in st ives. We got upgraded to room 4. Make sure you stay in that room - best room we've ever had.... Sounds sad but it was and we've been to... More

From the moment we had arrived we was made to feel very welcome which was lovely. Breakfast was fantastic and loved the little cake bakes that was made for the guests to help themselves... More

The hotel is in a great location, just a two minute walk from Porthminster beach. The room we stayed in (number 6) was light, comfortable and really clean...best of all it had a sea view, we loved waking up to the sound of the waves. Breakfast was excellent- a great range of choices and all local, tasty produce. The daily... More

A gem of a hotel nestled in the valley leading to Porthminster Beach St Ives and overlooking the beach and St Ives. Everything a hotel should be - elegant clean comfortable and quiet in a brilliant location with extremely helpful staff. A special mention for the complimentary cake provided every afternoon in the dining room. It is not a budget... More

A great hotel for St Ives. It's literally 30m from the beautiful beaches of St Ives, the branch line train station and only 5 minutes from the towns shops and restaurants by foot along the costal path. We checked in quite late but the checkin was quick and easy. They waited up for us :) Quirky place to find, down... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Primrose Valley Hotel has been a part of the St Ives community since 1908. It is a delightful 9 bedroom Edwardian building idyllically located only seconds away from Porthminster beach and just a flat five minute walk to the Harbour and centre of St Ives town. With its convenient location, on site parking and homely interior we believe it's an ideal place to spend time away and to re-engage with the simpler pleasures of life. ... more   less
