We had a family room for just the 2 of us as it was a last minute booking and it was wonderful, spacious with bath AND sep shower, and a view to die for. The bed was super comfy and although next to the kitchen ventilation, it didn't bother us too much.
The staff MAKE this place so good - very friendly throughout and special mention to the good looking waiter James (oh he'll blush) for whom nothing was too much trouble.
Breakfast fresh and delicious (suggest perhaps one member of staff is the 'runner' to stop plates/glasses etc running out which was a small niggle). What I loved was that as the window seats became available, they were swiftly cleared so new guests could sit down and enjoy the spectacular view.
We had dinner one evening and the food was remarkably good, lovely menu with genuinely different and well presented dishes.
Location - well you can't get better; close to town, right over the sea AND its own swimming pool;
Can't wait to return - two blissful days wasn't enough!!
- 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
