Like some of the other reviewers l have not stayed at this venue but the service in the restaurant has prompted a return visit to St Ives. On a stormy November evening the hotel staff were fantastic with nothing being to much trouble even to organising a taxi for our return to our hotel. At the moment this hotel has... More

We didn't stay in the hotel, just went for a meal in the restaurant. What can I say... perfect that's what. Perfect from the original phone call to the moment we left. The way we were shown shown to our table upon arrival made it feel like a special night. The restaurant setting is very nice... clean, well set out,... More

Been two days in a row. Very friendly staff, impressive venue and as it's St Austell brewery it's fantastic drinks. If you can get a table next to the window you will definitely enjoy the view of St Ives harbour and I'm sure when it's warmer sitting on the terraces will be great. Only disappointment on second visit which amazed... More

We were delighted with our decision to book this hotel, which was new to us - from the reception staff to the chambermaid everyone made us very welcome. Rooms pretty basic but everything very clean (our bed was small for modern hotels) - but the price was good. Very pleased with the food - wonderful breakfasts and great bar/restaurant dishes....

This hotel was an absolute highlight of my year, and my family's. We loved every single part of the time we spent at Pedn Olva and plan to return as soon as possible! The location of the hotel is awesome, with views all the way around the bay. It was great to sit in the heated swimming pool and watch... More

We had dinner here on our one night in St Ives and sat on the terrace with a great view out to sea. The food was good quality although nothing special. The bar is well-appointed and enjoyed the local lager.

Four of us went for Sunday lunch and it was absolutely gorgeous. Three had the Sunday roast and were really impressed with the quality of the food and portion sizes. I had a steak, and that was great too. One of the group was on Slimming World and the waitress went way above and beyond to ensure that the meal... More

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
