We had an awesome two day break in this cosy little retreat. Excellent customer service from the lovely staff. Great food and facilities. Will definitely be staying again :) Awesome swimming pool and spa facilities with some free herbal tea thrown in for good measure :)

We came here for one night- on a Sunday in November, as a treat from me to my husband for his birthday. The hotel has had a revamp and honestly looks gorgeous on line, with chic beautifully decorated bedrooms and bathrooms and a funky pool & spa. The location overlooking Porthminster beach in St.Ives (it used to be the Porthminster...

We found the room noisey as it was on the front no double glazing. Breakfast ok if you get there early as we found the cold buffet was not refilled. we...

I had read some reviews that were less than complimentary about this hotel..........they were wrong! Our room was spacious, the bathroom large and immaculate, the beds so comfy. We did not have a room with a view, but the dining room and terrace more than made up for that. We breakfasted every day overlooking the Porthminster Beach, dined on the...

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. The 46 bedrooms offer complete comfort and some of the Superior Bedrooms have balconies - a perfect place to relax over a morning coffee with the papers or afternoon tea watching the boats sail by... ... more   less
