As we had not stayed here before we had only booked in here for 2 nights thankfully as the bedroom was the worst we have experienced in many years.

Stayed here with my husband and 3 month old son for 3 nights. Has lovely views of the beach throughout, but especially in the dining area. Breakfast and dinner were just ok, not much of. a selection for either one. The spa was a good experience, and they have nice little gym with cardio equipment facing the beach.

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.
