If you want somewhere that you can truly and totally relax, enjoy great food, with a view to die for. The you would be very hard pressed to find somewhere better than the Pedn Olva. I've stayed in the Wescot room several times, and I am still blown away by the bright turquoise seaview that fills the whole window that greats you when you open the door to your room. With the smell of the salty air and the sound of the waves breaking on the rocks below your window. Only to be broken by the distant calls of the gulls. The staff are very friendly and helpful, without being in your face all the time. The local award winning local real ales are great, and I don't normally drink real ale. The breakfast is hot, fresh and of very good quality, from local produce. Whether you care to enjoy it from the terrace or from within the breakfast room, the view along the beach towards Carbis Bay is more than I could ask for.
No it's not the cheapest place around, but certainly worth the money, and they do some GREAT out of season deals too.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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 29 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. ... more less
