Birthday lunch - great value and good quality served with a smile. Really enjoyable visit - can thoroughly recommend. The scallops were beautifully cooked and melt in the mouth. Husband rated the seafood broth which looked to be a meal in itself!

Stayed for one night bed and breakfast. Our room was excellent, and the view was second to none! The staff were all lovely and the bar was very cosy with the fire burning. Breakfast was great. The only downside is that they haven't got a car park and you have to use the nearby station pay and display car park.... More

We often visit this Hotel and are blown away by its superb location. Each room has the most amazing sea view and we have not found another Hotel that can rival it. The Staff are very approachable and friendly. And smoked haddock for breakfast is worth trying.

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
