Just back from a long weekend at this superb hotel with what must be some of the best views anywhere.
All the staff are first class, really friendly and very helpful - Michael the waiter is an absolute gem, never stops smiling!
Hotel is nicely contemporary in its decor and we stayed in a beautifully decorated room with incredible views of the harbour and out to sea. Same views in the restaurant/bar, where we watched seals while having breakfast.
Quality of the food is first class and scallops and brill at dinner were cooked to perfection and very well presented - I've paid double what it cost at alleged top end restaurants and it hasn't been half as good. We didn't even bother exploring other restaurants in St Ives, we ate in both nights. Whoever their chef is, they're a real find.
If you're looking for a superb value, relaxing break in a very stylish, warm and friendly hotel with charming staff, this is the place to head for.
- 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 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. ... more less
