All the staff are friendly and helpful, great facilities but only limited hours that we could take our 4 year old daughter swimming. Fab breakfasts (didn't have lunch or dinner there as we were out all day) would highly recommend...

Four days in a superior double overlooking the sea at St. Ives Harbour Hotel was a brilliant idea as a bit of R & R for my wife and I. Nice room, good room services and the parking system (doorman takes/ brings your car to/from the private garage areas over the road) was excellent- a nice touch. The restaurant served...

My husband & I stayed here for two nights with our 4 month old baby. We loved the hotel.

I booked the Harbour Hotel & Spa as a last minute break, so didn't do masses of research, but seemed good value. Having the name spa in the name conjures up a certain expectation and it isn't quite as it seems but in many ways so much better. I was originally in a room by the road on the 2nd...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. The Harbour Spa provides the perfect hideaway, as you indulge in a soothing treatment and then unwind by the pool, gazing out to sea from the comfort of a lounger! Enjoy an indulgent afternoon tea, cocktail or light lunch on the alfresco dining terrace and soak up the sea air and sensational views.
