Stayed at Pedn Olva Hotel in the middle of june. Had a wonderful room fell asleep and woke every morning to the sound of the sea. Lovely breakfast, very friendly, helpful staff. Big thank you to Steve, who went above and beyond the call of duty and carried our heavy case up the steps to the car park.

This was our 3rd time at the Pedn Olva and once again we had a lovely relaxing 4 nights stay at this friendly, laid back but professionally run hotel. Our room, number 30, was on second floor with its own balcony and full width, floor to ceiling windows which gave us fabulous views of St Ives Harbour. The sound of the waves lapping on the rocks beneath our window was so relaxing. The rooms at the Pedn Olva tend to be compact due to the quirky nature of the building and our double room was no exception. However the views more than made up for this and the room was attractively decorated in neutral colours with a small but completely adequate shower room. We had a flat screen TV and hairdryer and tea and coffee making facilities were provided along with good quality Cornish biscuits. We had breakfast each morning on the outside terrace overlooking the gorgeous Porthminster beach. Lots of choice available at breakfast which was excellent. We also ate at the hotel each evening rather than trawling the streets of St Ives for a suitable restaurant. We were not disappointed as the food was without exception, imaginative and delicious, along with reasonably priced wines. What better place to linger over your evening meal than Pedn Olva's dining room watching the sun set and with the waves lapping beneath the windows. Service in the restaurant and bar was good and all staff were friendly and helpful. During the day the outdoor terraces provide plenty of options for enjoying a cool drink or relaxing on a sun lounger near the swimming pool overlooking the sea. We will definitely stay again when we are next in St Ives.

Today on a day trip to St Ives we passed this place walking from the train station. Having looked at the menu we decided it would make a good place for lunch. We were not disappointed! Opting to sit inside due to it being sightly breezy we had a wonderful panoramic view and food that just hit the spot - Chicken skewers and Cornish crab & prawn toasted brioche. Now looking in to staying there next time we are down this way.

Don't think I have stayed closer to sea without being in it. Wonderful sea view. Weather was absolutely gorgeous so strolled down to beach at 07.30 and had a morning swim. Breakfast on terrace overlooking beach and sea. Breakfast absolutely gorgeous and nice selection including eggs benedict.
Swimming pool small but heated and decking around hotel great for an outdoor beer. Room 16 apparently is the one to go for.
Not to forget the staff were brilliant.
Photos attached are from terrace where we ate breakfast. Brilliant when you have weather in Cornwall.

Room Tip: We didn't go with kids but there were quite a few around.
