My wife and I have stayed at this hotel many times over the past few years. The location is excellent and all the rooms offer lovely views of either porthminster beach or the harbour. The rooms are small but perfectly adequate although I would not want to stay in one for more than a couple of days as storage space is limited. Some rooms do have a balcony which is good if the weather is nice. The food is ok but I would suggest you take advantage of the great restaurants in St Ives rather than eat in the hotel. The staff are helpful although customer service could be better. In summary the hotel is perfectly ok but gets a good rating due to the excellent location.
- 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
