The view from the wide bay window could not be bettered, looking out directly over the Sea. We could easily reach everywhere in St Ives within minutes. There was everything in the room that we needed including slippers and white towelling bathrobes. Similarly, there was everything we could wish for for breakfast too: traditional English breakfast, continental cold meats and...

We stayed for three nights in February. The staff were friendly and extremely attentive, nothing was too much trouble. The food was extcellent too. Our cabin room had a balcony directly over the rocks and waves. The sound of the sea was fabulous, as were the views across the harbour of St Ives. The room was small but had everything...

Our stay at Pedn Olva was thoroughly enjoyable - very clean, comfortable room, friendly helpful staff, lovely food, and what a fantastic situation, right on the rocks! We loved it. Despite the bedroom heating failing, & the engineers being unable to fix the problem immediately, the staff quietly and quickly produced electric fires. It's not cheap, but it's worth it....

We visited for a late Valentines Day celebration. the staff were exceptionally friendly, helpful and welcoming. Our room was beautifully furnished and immaculately clean. It was a little small, but there's not much the hotel can do about it, as it's built into the rocky cliffs. The views are simply terrific - we had a balcony room, which I would...

An oversight with an order resulted in the manager giving us both a drink on the house which was a very nice gesture and quite unexpected.Will be back again, and always...

We had visited for lunch last year and had a great experience, so visited again. However, there was no consistency compared with last year. Portions smaller. Apparently due to a change in the Kitchen team???? A comment was made to a very ignorant waitress, who ignored our complaint and just passed it off. However, when mentioned our issue to a...

We visit the Pedn Olva regularly as although it's a hotel they welcome you into the bar for a drink and have some of the best views across St Ives to enjoy. If you don't want to take in the spectacular sea, beach or harbour views then you can site by the roaring fire. The staff are always very smiley...

We stayed just one night on a cold rainy. The hotel was lovely and warm and cosy and welcoming. Great views, lovely log fire and the room was clean with lovely views. The hotel is in a wonderful position to appreciate St Ives.

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
