Historical Traveller Reviews of Primrose Valley Hotel
What a fantastic findfrom LondonRick
The staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming. The dinning room and lounge area were very relaxing. These areas have fantastic "coffee table" books and a great wine list, all very reasonably priced. The breakfasts were amazing, local produce perfectly cooked.
I love St Ives and have stayed at the Tregenna Castle and The Chyn Albanny-both adequate but the Primrose Valley is an exceptional little place and no more expensive with no chintz! I am already looking to book another weekend in Oct. I may sound very gushing but my only complaint is that I can only give it 5 stars-I want to give it 6!
A Delightful Stayfrom Cvaj
Great little hotelfrom palexri
Although Primrose Valley itself doesn't look like the sort of place you would find many primroses, the location is very good, requiring only a short stroll into town along the seafront and lanes. The other big plus is the proximity to Porthminster Cafe, our favourite eatery in St Ives and a great choice for lunch, tea, cocktails and dinner (trust me on all of these, as well as lounging around with a bottle of wine to hand when none of the above applied...)
The hotel itself is spotlessly clean, stylishly refurbished with the touches familiar from the interiors magazines and offers a delicious breakfast, carefully sourced from local suppliers. Service is friendly and prompt - the team obviously take great pride in the hotel and their product, and it shows.
We're delighted to have discovered the Primrose Valley - the best place we have so far found in St Ives - and look forward to our next visit.
Perfect Experiencefrom Holly29
First, the room. I am almost loathe to tell you how fab it was, because I want to go back and back and back and it might be booked the whole time. Three huge rooms, the biggest bathroom in the world and loads of fab touches like a great minibar, DVD player, a CD player which could play in the bedroom or bathroom or lounge or all three... The whole thing was almost bigger than my house!
Breakfasts are wonderful, with the hotel clearly being very proud of the local produce it uses, so it is all home made jams and locally sourced sausages and things. Yum.
From the moment we arrived we felt so welcome. We drove down the scary narrow road to the hotel and upon discovering we had driven from London, we were instantly offered tea and cakes to perk us up after the long drive. Location is brilliant - just above the beach and a five minute stroll to the main parts of St. Ives. St. Ives itself is just stunning - although a top tip is to make sure you reserve restaurants in the evening during busy periods like Easter and summer and bank holidays. I can recommend the excellent Blue Fish.
I loved it. I can't rate it highly enough. I stay at 5 star hotels quite a bit and although this isn't one, the clear love and attention to detail which has gone into this hotel make it a truly memorable stay. Enjoy!

Top Local Tips for St. Ives
St. Ives is not for the average tourist. If you have an average family with average expectations, go to Newquay. St. Ives is perfect for the visitor who wants to experience the charm of a small Cornish fishing village, the culture of art, the taste of fresh fish washed down with local ale and walks along clean beaches. Excited children running around uncontrolled would unfortunately spoil the atmosphere, especially in the evening.
Where to dine! St. Ives is filled with Restaurants of all different styles and prices. At the top end the Blue Fish and Seafood Cafe are a must if you like fish. In both starters about £5-£7 and mains £12-£20. If you go the either you wont be dissapointed! The Blue Fish is stunning and the worth a trip, incredible seafood and great daily specials. If you are looking for something "quick" Blas burgers or the Portminister Cafe (within a 5 min walk from the hotel) are worth a trip.
Chapel Street Deli Ran as a Deli in the day serving sandwiches etc, in the evening it turns in to a small restaurant. Great food, lovely owner. A decent meal with a good bottle of wine. Excellent seafood, simply prepared, but just hit the spot every time (we went 3 times for dinner and 3 times for lunch in a week's stay in St Ives!)
