The staff were all amazing, food delicious and views stunning, even the weather was fantastic ( that was not totally down to the hotel even though they put a request in). This hotel is perfect for a wedding with...

Our room was of good size, clean and with lovely views over the bay. The bathroom was also clean. The hotel is very well located, a 15 min walk into town (walk back...

We stayed here last month and loved it. We have been to St Ives a few times before but never stayed here... We don't be staying anywhere else from now on. The hotel was perfect, good location, good food, good spa & treatment. We can't wait to come back :)

Proper home from home. In the middle of all the St Ives attractions but has all its own facilities including Spa and pool. Lovely staff and comfy rooms. Food great, sleep well in big comfy beds and linen.

The hotel has been refurbished since we last stayed and we spent 1 night here with friends. Paid £129 DBB, which was good value. Enjoyed the spa but would have been nice if there had been room for overnight guests to relax on beds- seemed to be always occupied or reserved with towels by spa day visitors. Room we stayed...

Booked at short notice for a long weekend away. The hotel is interesting as it clearly has has "history", but has been made over in a contemporary style. It works! It does have the benefit of a valet car park, which is a real benefit in St Ives. Our room was at one end of the hotel, sea facing and...

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.
