This used to be a hotel. Great location, great staff, good food. A disaster that it is now a pub with rooms. Ok, stay here for the good points but..... Be prepared to not only pay full whack for relatively small rooms but you need to accept that " the rest of St. Ives can bring their families in and dominate the bar and lounge at the most popular times" .
You can't sit anywhere after dinner for a coffee or night cap until after 10/10.30pm. Even then you can expect there to be families around.
What a shame!
You can always come out of season and we presume life at this lovely place will be back to normal.
- 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
