This was our 4th holiday in St Ives in recent years and we only chose this hotel to help my 72 year old mother have level access to the beach, but after staying here recently we now wouldn’t go anywhere else.
The staff were friendly and efficient, but in a relaxed calm way and not forced. We had a deluxe room with balcony overlooking Porthminster Beach and although the room was fairly small the view and room facilities made up for this. We here a little concerned about the booking a “standard single” room for Mum but again, although small, it had a fantastic panoramic view of the harbour.
All public areas were spotlessly clean and had the added advantage of a panoramic view of the harbour to the Porthminster Beach. Breakfast selections were excellent as were the leisurely bar lunches after sunbathing was rained off. Our only possible gripe with this hotel, and something that we seem to find more often these days, is that dinner vegetables are not included in the price of the meal and the additions that we did pay for were very skimpy.
The next time we go to St Ives we will be booking this hotel.
- 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
