Stayed here for 3 nights in July/August 2014 to celebrate my 40th birthday. The hotel is fantastically located - near the train station, adjacent to Porthminster beach, and a very short walk into the town. We had a balcony room. The rooms are quite small but well designed, very comfortable and decorated well. The balcony was a good size and the view was simply stunning; St Ives town to the left, Godrevy to the right. We saw a seal below our balcony one evening. The food at breakfast was always delicious and varied each day. On our first morning the service was slightly erratic - no-one seemed to be available to tell us where to sit, whether it was table service etc - but on the second and third mornings there were more staff around and the service was good. We did not dine in at the hotel apart from some cheese and biscuits one evening which were local and delicious. The hotel is a little expensive but probably comparable in price locally, the location and service more than make it worth it. We would love to visit again!
- 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
