Certificate of Excellence
The Primrose Valley Hotel has been a part of the St Ives community since 1908. It is a delightful 9 bedroom Edwardian building idyllically located only seconds away from Porthminster beach and just a flat five minute walk to the Harbour and centre of St Ives town. With its convenient location, on site parking and homely interior we believe it's an ideal place to spend time away and to re-engage with the simpler pleasures of life.

Such a lovely boutique hotel. Although room was on the small side it had everything we wanted. The breakfast was very good and nothing was too much trouble for staff. We will definitely return in the summer!

This B&B is well situated right off the Porthminster Beach and steps away from the wonderful Porthminster Beach Cafe. It is a solid 10 minute walk into the main touristy area but that also provides some refuge from the masses. The breakfasts were superb with...More

Thank you for this review . Our sea view rooms are spacious but the two large suites do not have sea views.
