St Ives Harbour Hotel & Spa
Just steps from famous Porthminster Beach, a short stroll from postcard-perfect St Ives harbour, the St Ives Harbour Hotel & Spa is idyllically positioned in arguably the most charismatic town in Cornwall. Fully renovated in 2018, and with jaw-dropping views out to sea from many rooms, this 52-room gem is also now rightly considered one of Cornwall’s best boutique hotels, and the perfect Cornish seaside getaway.
For those craving a sea fix, most rooms come with sea views. Some come with private balconies. For foodies, the hotel’s HarBAR Kitchen, Bar & Terrace restaurant serves fresh, locally-sourced and seasonal food, showcasing the finest regional dishes and flavours – and terrifyingly indulgent desserts. Signature dishes include Moules Marinere, Harbour Fish Pie, and a sumptuous home-made seafood burger. The hotel’s vibrant bar serves up a casual and contemporary all-day menu plus an inspired drinks list, featuring some of our favourite local brewers and distillers alongside our signature cocktails and an eclectic selection of wines.
For those seeking renewal and revival inside, the hotel’s luxury spa features four seven treatment rooms, a swimming pool, a hydrotherapy pool, a sauna, a steam room, an indoor relaxation area and outdoor sun terrace, and a fitness centre.
If, however, you’re looking to spend your time outdoors, it’s steps away from the beach, close to watersport centres offering surfing and coasteering, and close to the excellent Tate Art Gallery. The hotel is well-positioned for exploring not only St Ives, but other charming nearby Cornish seaside towns including Hayle and Penzance. The world-famous Eden Project is just 45 minutes away by car. On request, the hotel can prepare you a sumptuous picnic to take with you, or arrange bike hire.
