Historical Traveller Reviews of Primrose Valley Hotel

What a fantastic find

from LondonRick
I found The Primrose Valley in the Independent on Saturday earlier in the year-it was in the "Top 50 independant hotels in the UK" in the magazine and what a find! We arrived on Sat for a two night stay to be greeted warmly. We were immediately offered tea and cake and then after sitting and relaxing for a few mins we were shown to our rooms. Our friends had a non sea view room which was beautifully decorated and we opted to pay the extra for the view-definitely worth it as we were looking out over Porthminister Beach and St. Ives in the background. The rooms were in a word stunning! Clean and well laid out with possibly one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on. The hotel is just minutes walk from St. Ives along the seafront which makes for a great location.
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 Stay

from Cvaj
My husband and I spent four wonderful nights at Primrose Valley Hotel in early May. We stayed in the suite, which was quite luxurious and comfortable. The owners were warm and welcoming and have created a lovely space that is conducive to visiting with fellow guests. The breakfasts were a highlight of every day - optional full Cornish breakfast plus wonderful fresh, local fruits and yogurt. The hotel mixes traditional and modern in a beautiful way, and is a perfect point for touring Cornwall. The owners were extremely helpful in recommending good restaurants and day trips. Highly recommended.

Great little hotel

from palexri
Have just returned from a delightful stay in St Ives, made better by accommodation and service provided by the Primrose Valley Hotel.
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 Experience

from Holly29
I stayed in the suite for 3 days over Easter and had an utterly fantastic time.

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!

Great location and views

from KiwiJWS
Great location, a short walk to St.Ives harbour. Room was spacious with a very nice balcony and view of the sea. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was top drawer.


from j_m_wylie
Just home tonight from the Primrose Valley Hotel in St Ives. What a beautiful with friendly welcomng staff. My friend and I stayed in room 7 which was lovely, with a nice bathroom with power shower. The breakfasts were great, although difficult to choose what to have as there was so much on offer! The location was super, although I agree with prev comments that you have to be slightly brave ( or have a very small car) to brave the streets of St Ives. I went with my friend, however this would be the perfect romantic getaway!

Home away from home

from TheRundle
The Primrose Valley Hotel is a gorgeous little place, within perfect walking distance to the shops and centre of St Ives and perfectly located to Porthminster Beach. I can imagine in the Summer the beach itself would be absolute chaotic with people sunbaking and swimming, but it was perfectly quiet and empty when we were there. The rooms were clean and tastefully decorated (I would prefer carpet in the room, but floating boards are obviously better being so close to the beach) bed was very comfy and the towels we soft and fluffy (small bathroom though). There were some great little added touches which made the stay special - they provide bathrobes on request, there is a DVD player in room and selection of DVD's available from the bar and there was a fabulous selection of new magazines in the room (ie: Elle, Instyle, Marie name a few). Our view from room 6 was lovely. The breakfast was absolutely exceptional and the quality of produce, coupled with the friendly service, made getting up every monring a delight. The freshly ground coffee as you order and smoked salmon and scrambled eggs were to die for!!! The only downside was the entrance to the hotel from the main road - it was so narrow and inconspicuous, we missed it a number of times, and if you had a large car it would be very difficult to manoeurve. However, I highly recommend this property and would go back in a heartbeat.

Fantastic location

from M-7
The welcome upon arrival at Primrose Valley was charming. The location on the bay was simply breathtaking in the middle of winter - we look forward to returning to appreciate it in summer. Our room was perfect, although slightly small if you were inclined to be picky (and no view - but we weren't paying for one). Primrose Valley's dinner recommendation (The Porthminster Beach Cafe) was the best meal out we've had in a very long time, and was only a short moonlit stroll along the beach from the hotel itself.

Breakfast was fantastic and the service throughout our stay was wonderful.

brilliantly decorated!!

from darrenlong
After arriving at the Primrose Valley Hotel we were delighted with the service and warm welcome we received, our room, the breakfast and above all the service was fantastic. I would recomend to anyone! 10 out of 10 for us!

Beautiful location

from Diem
We spent 3 days here with our little baby and the service couldn't be better. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The property offered a travel cot, baby blanket and baby monitor, which is a huge plus because that meant we didn't have to pack the whole house. The proximity to the beach is excellent. Town is a short walk away. We stayed in the family suite, which I thought was a bit small for a family. But for 100GBP a night, it wasn't a bad deal. We would love to return to the Primrose Valley Hotel in the summer.

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!)
