Certificate of Excellence
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.

Super hotel, staff extremely friendly and helpful. Loved the view from our bedroom even when the wind was blowing. Nothing was too much trouble and we were in a party of 13 ladies. Comfortable beds and wonderfully clean bathroom.

Lovely hotel in a very special position. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Fantastic views of the sea and St Ive’s from all parts of the hotel. Great food and welcoming atmosphere especially around the fire. Watched seals playing from our balcony. Shall be returning.
