Ok, previously booked another hotel 20 mins walk away, disgraceful, so we went walking and by mistake, we came across this place, like a mirage.....on the horizon. This cannot be a hotel I said to the wife. On entering, it's fantastic and the girl on reception was so helpful and polite, she deserves a pay rise. Shown to our room...

This hotel has lovely roof terraces with fabulous views of St Ives beaches and is therefore a favourite stop of ours on the walk down into St Ives town . Perfect on a warm afternoon for pre dinner drinks. They serve a Cornish gin in enormous glasses that looks the business and tastes pretty good too. However, if the weather...

​After loving my 3-night solo stay in 2015, a travel compadre and I decided upon the 2016 Christmas 2-day package plus an additional night of 23rd December. We decided to each book sea view rooms with balcony. The package included all meals, the highlight of which was, naturally, Christmas lunch. Quite often I find that the better restaurant tables are...

Me and my other half did really appreciate staying here in the hotel. The views was absolutely magnificent and beautiful from the terraces and the room we stayed in. Everyone welcomed us both in from the entrance to the end of our stay which we was very disappointed to go. The receptionists was very helpful from the check in and...

Stays here over Easter, overwhelmed by the view when we walked into room 16. The room was a really good size and clean. Easy walk into the town and harbour. The only issues with the room was we didn't have a balcony and the windows didn't open very far plus being situated under the bar we could hear people walking...

Lovely place and just had drinks. Very welcoming and allow dogs in bar area. Would definitely visit again. Would go to eat next time. Very relaxing sitting by open coal fire. Would be lovely views over the sea in the day.

I stayed here for one night but wished it was more. The room was fairly small and the bed was a standard double. Normally this would have ruined my stay, but the view from the bed / room was amazing. And although the bed was small it was comfortable. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The rooftop bar is...

We've eaten at Pedn Olva regularly and never been disappointed. The Sunday lunch is worth a try, sirloin Sunday roast was delicious and they do children's portions too, which my 5year old soon cleared the plate. The staff are always friendly and welcoming, particularly good with my 4yr old who wanted mussels. They were brilliant at bringing out a children's...

We went to the Pend Olva for breakfast, expecting stunning views and promised quality locally-sourced food. The first element did not disappoint, the second certainly did. It's not easy to mess up scrambled eggs, but these were tasteless and of a strange, wet consistency - I'm sure they were, as promised on the website, locally sourced but that is meant...

After reading your review last night, I was most disappointed to read your comments about our breakfast. Our scrambled eggs are cooked in a very traditional way in a saucepan with free range eggs, a touch of cream, butter and seasoning. I can only apologise if it wasn't to your liking. I have revisited with my Food and Beverage Team...

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
