It is a sad fact that despite being well travelled we had never been to St Ives before last week! Our family had taken a house for eight higher in the Town and suggested that the Pedn Olva would be better for us as my wife has slight mobility problems.
Built on the side of a cliff the Hotel has obviously grown over the years to cope with the terrain as everywhere has to be accessed by stairs!
Our room was described as a deluxe cabin and was of reasonable size with a little sitting area overlooking the sea and a door leading to a shared balcony. We were lucky with the weather so were able to walk into the town and also spend some time on Porthminster beach.
The Pedn Olva is not cheap but neither is it outrageously expensive. Drinks and bar meals are good value. The restaurant offers quite imaginitive meals and service is friendly if not particularly consistent.
Parking can be a problem so I would recommend pre booking a space which costs £8.00 per day and is on the council car park a short walk away?
Overall a good Hotel which could do with some minor attention to detail to make it great!
- 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
