This was the first time we have visited Cornwall, as part of our summer road trip we chose Primrose valley for its location and chilled out decor, Oh how we were so happy when we saw our room with a brilliant sea view beautiful neutral colours and beach feeling decor, the guys at the hotel are so chilled and welcoming...

We had a two night stay and this is a great location. Close to beach and more important the walk into St Ives is flat, no hills.All staff very friendly, food good. Room excellent.Able to park your car outside, which is a great plus in St Ives. Will come again. Graham & Christine

We had a fabulous week's holiday at the Primrose Valley Hotel last May. It was our 3rd stay there as we love it that much. It's in a great location only a 2 min walk from Porthminster beach which is where we spent most of our time. It is also a short walk from the harbour where the restaurants and... More

We had room 5 which was gorgeous and had a view over the stunning Porthminster beach. Breakfast was first class and staff all welcoming and very accommodating. Called back to the hotel in the afternoon to be treated to... More

a very nice establishment, nice decor with a contemporary style! the breakfasts are excellent! however if you are on the third floor the air temperature is very warm even when only 15 degrees outside, there is no air conditioning & you can't sleep with the windows open or the seagulls will keep you awake all night!

We had a fabulous week's holiday at the Primrose Valley Hotel, tucked away but a stone's throw from Porthminster beach and a short walk from the harbour. The room (Room 5) was fabulous (with a great bathroom, both bath and shower) and the entire hotel is relaxed, stylish and beautifully refurbished. The daily cakes were a real treat and the... More

I booked this B&B via TRIVAGO and the recommendations on TRIPADVISOR. There is a narrow steep hill that you need to go down to get to the hotel. It was pretty daunting as the public use it to access the beach and if you are unlucky to be going down or up the hill and there is a oncoming car.....well... More

Looking light, fresh and casually stylish following a refurb this is a superbly run hotel. Everyone we talked with were friendly, helpful and efficient but special mention must go to the excellent Ollie and the wonderful cakes made for guests each afternoon. We stayed in room 3 which is a good size room and bathroom with small balcony overlooking St... More

Well where can I start? From arrival to departure this stunning hotel had everything! Comfortable beds, spotless rooms and fantastic breakfasts! The homemade cake available every afternoon was amazing too. This hotel is situated right on Porthminster beach so location wise it cant be beat. The care and attention provided by Ollie and Jason was second to none. Thank you... More

We were in Room 8 and spent a sleepless night due to the screeching of seagulls at the side of the building which was unrelenting throughout the night. Closing the bedroom window did not help and made the room too hot. A room change was not available and as a solution we were offered ear plugs. We then decided not... More

Hi Alison. Please can you write a fair review of the "Hotel" rather than just how you slept that one night in a sea side town with sea gulls in it! The gulls are a protected species and we cannot control them. Some nights they are quiet and some nights they are noisy. You describe room 8 as modern and... 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
