The St Ives Harbour Hotel was unknown to us before our visit. The name gave the impressions that it was close too or overlooked the harbour when in fact it has a magnificent view over the beach and sea. Our stay was wonderful. Winter maintenance had put the swimming pool and spar out of action so the management gave us...

This hotel has great facilities (spa, gym, restaurant, sea view). We were offered an upgrade via email after we made our booking (for one night) which we accepted, but when we arrived at 18:00, we were given the tiniest room possible. The "sea view" was across a roof top covered in moss and was pretty poor. We mentioned the upgrade...

Hotel is beautiful, make sure you get an ocean view-looks directly onto beach. Room and bathroom were both immaculate. Short walk to st ives centre (5 minutes). The spa in the hotel is great, with a terrace that looks onto the sea, and a pool. We had the 70 mins harbour reviver massage and would definitely recommend- Zoe was fantastic.

We chose this hotel upon the merit of the Salcombe part of this chain. As we arrived, the car park was empty, the intercom down. 10 mins after trying a man appears to park our car but with no Id. When it's established he actually works for the hotel, we let him park our car. We check in, key doesn't...

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. The Harbour Spa provides the perfect hideaway, as you indulge in a soothing treatment and then unwind by the pool, gazing out to sea from the comfort of a lounger! Enjoy an indulgent afternoon tea, cocktail or light lunch on the alfresco dining terrace and soak up the sea air and sensational views.
