The Location is definitely the number one reason for booking this hotel. Right on the coast, one side has views of the harbour the other side views of Porthmister Beach and you can move around the outside bars and restaurant to get which ever view you want. We had a cabin room with balcony which gave a fantastic view. However,...

I left my wife doing round 2 of the art galleries, so arranged to meet her here.... good decision! Had a really well kept pint of Tribute and sat on the terrace overlooking the harbour. We had already eaten otherwise the menu looked tempting. Free wifi (St Austell brewery). The hotel has a good location close to the lifeboat end...

Pedn Olva is about a five minute walk from the harbour and Fore Street towards the train station. As its it of town a bit, it's somewhat quieter and there were tables available for lunch on a warm sunny Friday in July. The staff were very accommodating as there were nine of us and the food was rather good too....

We tried this hotel for lunch as our usual haunt was closed. The menu is fairly varied and I'm sure would have something for everyone. We chose the calamari to start followed by the beef and lobster burger. We were impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the attentiveness of the waiting team. We could not fault the portion...

We have stayed here before so are aware that the rooms are very small but the position of the hotel is superb. We chose a room with a balcony this time, we were not aware the balcony was shared either side, but this did not affect our stay. Our room appeared even smaller than our previous stay and there was...

Could not be closer to the water whilst staying at this hotel.Magnificent views from every room. Comfortable accommodation though our bathroom was tiny. My biggest complaint was the unreliability of the wifi system. Living overseas and needing to be in touch with business is important and Internet falling out regularly was very frustrating .

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
