Popped in here for lunch with our two dogs while visiting St.Ives. Staff are very friendly, food is excellent and well presented. Overall thoroughly recommended - great choice on the menu and the view finishes off the whole package. 😊

We loved our stay and were so excited on getting the room as we had not done any prior bookings. We just tried and since this was off season so found a room at very reasonable rates. Best part is the location right on the sea edge and one can hear the sae waves hitting the beach/rocks which is such...

We arrived in the freezing cold to be met at reception with a lovely warm and friendly welcome. We were shown our room along what seemed like a rabbit Warren of stairs and turns. When we opened the door the most amazing views were the first things that you noticed. We stayed in room 19 and from the bed you...

I stayed for 2 nights and loved it. The staff were brilliant and thoroughly spoilt me. I had a single room with a fabulous views across the harbour. It was very clean and well equipped. The food was superb! I would definitely recommend and intend to stay there again! 😍

We stayed for one night only (unfortunately). The staff were excellent, as was the breakfast. Our room (I believe it was the last one available and booked on the day) was rather small but very clean and comfy with a wonderful view of St Ives harbour. There was also a shared patio type veranda outside with good furniture. We did...

Thank you for taking the time to post your review of your recent stay at the Pedn Olva. As you mention our rooms are compact, unfortunately with our unique location comes the issue of not being able to extend to provide larger rooms. However the view, I think, more than makes up for the room sizes. Having said this we...

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
