Travellers' Choice
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 30 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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent hotel, best location walking distance from train station, amazing view from the rooms the Restaurant has best view of the sea view the food was fantastic, the hotel staff very helpful friendly. Beach is in the back garden of the hotel. St Ives is probably one of the best location In Cornwall. Hotel Pedn-Olva is in the best location in St Ives. The town centre is few minutes away from the Hotel. Will visit again in summer 👍🏻

We had sunday lunch here, it was one of the nicest we've ever had, and that's saying something. Couldn't fault it. The meat and vegetables were cooked to perfection and the Rhubarb and apple crumble was delicious. The waitresses were all very helpful and friendly. Amazing views from our table. Would highly recommend

Amazing Sunday roast and excellent service. We booked for Sunday roast 2 adults and dog ( this place is completely dog friendly) we had roast beef and all the accompaniments it was delicious. No added surcharge for tips which a lot of places in St Ives seem to doing unfortunately ( although by law you don’t have to pay it) Crystal the waitress was amazing and very attentive. Thanks best meal of the week

We ate here two evenings running because we loved the easy, relaxed atmosphere and the general warm ambiance of the bar & restaurant. The food was very nice (especially the fish & chips and the Malaysian prawn curry). The staff are great plus it's fantastic to be able to enjoy views of the beautiful beaches & harbour.

Had a table for lunch booked as a birthday celebration. Lush G&T and fabulous ambience and views of St Ives. So why the 2/5 mark? We opted for the sharing platter at £23:50. When it arrived it comprised of 1/4 baguette 3 pats of butter 1 thin slice Serrano ham 1 small wedge of cheddar cheese 1 pickled onion 6 olives I slice of courgette 1 slice of aubergine 2 small stuffed red peppers A sprig of rocket with some small tomatoes We challenged the manager who agreed that there was not £23:50 worth of food on the platter. But did not offer any recompense. Sadly we declined the platters and left. I would like to think the other meals were better value for money so I cannot make comment on that.

Fabulous views over St Ives bay with a sea facing room, so relaxing lying in bed listening to the waves breaking over the rocks below. Two nights was just not enough, I would have loved to stay for longer and I look forward to a return visit. The staff were friendly and helpful and I enjoyed dining in the restaurant.
