We spent 3 nights here as part of my recovery from Chemotherapy treatment. We intentionally chose this hotel for the views, for it's proximity to the town and for the Spa - we were not disappointed with the first two. The Spa refused to treat me 'because of my condition' - was very disappointed. A lack of knowledge, experience and...

hotel situated in perfect location. great views of the bay. food excellent, staff extremely helpful, polite and courteous, excellent throughout. Please note, parking instructions confusing on website and make sure you book a 'sea view' room to avoid disappointment! Rooms vary, make sure you're aware of this when booking.Having said that, we'll definitely return soon!!!

We stayed just one night in a suite. The room was very comfortable with amazing views over the bay. A comfortable bed with lovely linen.

Family room was very comfortable, view was incredible from the room and the restaurant. Pool was a really welcome break after one of the many walks around St Ives. A few minutes from the beach and with a very friendly staff, we are looking forward to come back, specifically since our dog was also welcome!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
St Ives Harbour Hotel & Spa is perfectly positioned directly above Porthminster beach boasting stunning views across the water. Watch as the waves lap against the famous Godrevy Lighthouse in the distance and feel your troubles disappear. Explore the local harbour, as you meander through the cobbled streets, and then return for dinner at the Terrace Restaurant, serving up seasonal and local food, along with stunning sea views.
