The Google “blurb” says “Serene, rustic-chic rooms in a boutique hotel offering free cooked breakfast & beach views”, and that’s a good summary. A comfortable room, a place to park (even though we arrived early and room wasn’t ready), a good breakfast, and a short...More

Superb location by Porthminster Beach. Very friendly hosts and a lovely and tastefully decorated property. Our beautiful room had a balcony overlooking the beach and town together with an attractive ensuite. Would thoroughly recommend Primrose House.

About
Description
Primrose House has been a part of the St Ives community since 1908. It is a delightful 9 bedroom Edwardian building idyllically located only seconds away from Porthminster beach and just a flat five More minute walk to the Harbour and centre of St Ives town. With its convenient location, on site parking and homely interior we believe it's an ideal place to spend time away and to re-engage with the simpler pleasures of life. Less
