On a recent hot day we sat outside and enjoyed a very pleasant and reasonably priced lunch. The staff are friendly and helpful, and I do not know of a more pleasant outside area to have lunch in St Ives.

We arrived to find we had a beautiful view from our room looking over the whole of St.ves and St. Ives bay. Our room was situated right above the rocks so we could hear the waves lapping over them and going to sleep that night with that sound. Next morning got up to a large selection for breakfast and yet...

Great service and location on the way back to the railway station. Pricey hotel drinks as expected but food looked amazing and will definitely book a short stay here after what we saw from our short visit.

Enjoyed a nice meal with my wife. The staff were great. Had a sandwich which was good. The views are amazing, sit on the roof terraces to enjoy these. Only a short walk to the town from here. The food was reasonably priced

Away from the noisy sea front of the harbour we found this excellent hotel. We sat in the restaurant at a table with panoramic sea views and enjoyed an excellent meal. The staff were attentive without being pushy.

Visited in early April and had a room with a sea view balcony. Although the room was quite small it was very imaginatively designed and decorated - so this was not an issue. The staff were very welcoming, sorting out car-parking etc. Nothing was too much trouble. We ate in the dining room in the morning and evening. In the...

We have been visiting the restaurant of this hotel for 10 years now. The service today was impeccable and the food - what we received- was very good quality. However, we ordered the sharing seafood platter for £26. When the dish arrived, it was barely enough for one, let alone two - and certainly not worth the price tag. I...

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
