We had been here lots of times before and enjoyed the meal, service and location, so to celebrate our wedding anniversary we booked for a special meal. What a mistake!!!

Although we weren't staying here, we were welcomed for morning coffee, and enjoyed a fantastic view across Porthminster beach, from one of the many terraces around the hotel. Waiter service second to none. We have promised ourselves a stay here in order to enjoy everything they have to offer.

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
