It was our first visit to Cornwall and St Ives was delightful. The hotel staff were very welcoming from parking our car through to restaurant / bar service. Comfy room with lovely decor and fantastic view of the sea. Great to be able to have a swim during our stay. Food in the restaurant was delicious - we would definitely...

Stayed here for a wedding in October. Fantastic venue, great terraces and views with easy access to the beach. Good food in the restaurant the night before and excellent breakfast - great views from the restaurant. Reasonable room rates for wedding guests. Only criticism is there were no full length mirrors in the rooms.

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.
