The hotels location & view from its restaurant & bar are outstanding.
We enjoyed an average/good meal one evening. It is reasonably pricey but then it sits in one of the best locations in St Ives (in my opinion), being right on the waters front, able to view the entire bays without being swamped by the hundreds of day trippers in high season.
We were particularly impressed with the breakfast on offer, although service varied depending on the staff on duty. Reception service was excellent.
Our room, opposite the pool & sun deck area, was a disappointment. These rooms are well equipped but very small, with the bathroom being more of a bath closet than a bathroom. The door & window opened straight opposite to the pool, which is great if you don't mind having no privacy or peace & quiet. All 3 mornings of our stay we were woken early by our neighbour choosing to smoke & cough right outside our room, with our constant requests for her to choose one of the numerous other seats in the pool area being ignored.
I would recommend this hotel for its bar & outstanding location but not for the hotel room we stayed in by the pool.
- 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
