The only thing that could really do with improvement were the restaurant staff were very inefficient. The were very slow in taking our breakfast orders and meals were slow to be served. The...

My wife and I stayed at the St Ives harbour hotel while on holiday in St Ives. The hotel is in a fantastic position, with stunning views, and a short coastal walk in to St Ives. The staff were attentive and very efficient, however we paid £220.00 per night for a very small double room which would have benefitted from...

Having just returned from a 4 day stay (that is all they could offer at this time of year) I have to say the Hotel was excellent.

As far as I am aware, this is the only four star hotel in the lovely town of St Ives. In previous years we have rented a house or cottage on the island, not stayed in a hotel. I think we will return to renting our own accommodation in future. The hotel itself is nicely turned out and the staff...

Call me old fashioned, but I do like to tell the truth! The Harbour is a seriously nice old hotel that's been given a stylish 'boutique' makeover. A spectacular elevated position above Porthminster beach so some great views from inside the hotel, the spa and from the huge sun deck. Decent food, a relaxed atmosphere and the staff are friendly...

Stayed here for 3 days in July. The hotel staff were excellent , helpful, cheerful and actually seemed to enjoy their roles.. The management should be proud of them. Good food in a stylish restaurant, bedroom was attractive with a superb view , drinks were reasonably priced. Good Spa facilities. Well worth a visit.

St. Ives Harbour Hotel dates back to the Edwardian era and located on The Terrace, one of the main roads into St. Ives and just over half a mile from the town centre.

St Ives Harbour Hotel & Spa is perfectly positioned directly above Porthminster beach boasting stunning views across the water. Watch as the waves lap against the famous Godrevy Lighthouse in the distance and feel your troubles disappear. Explore the local harbour, as you meander through the cobbled streets, and then return for dinner at the Terrace Restaurant, serving up seasonal and local food, along with stunning sea views.
