Booked a two night DB&B deal with sea view room and champagne on arrival. You have to offload your luggage from the main road into St Ives but hotel staff very helpful and even parked our car. Hotel is Victorian and a little tired on the outside but all public areas were homely and warm with great sea views. We...

Loved this hotel. The setting is beautiful. The rooms are lovely with super king size beds and crisp white sheets. Facilities are great and would definitely like to visit again. Only thing they could do with updating is the carpets. Enjoyable easy walk into town.

We stayed in one of the suites and it was very comfortable and the views were spectacular. The restaurant was well situated with great views across the bay and into St Ives.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review I am pleased that you enjoyed you stay in the Hotel Bedroom and your breakfast. Your experience in the Restaurant does appear to be out of character with our normal service and food quality, but be assured I will investigate with the team. Kind regards Peter

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.
