About The Hotel

A beautiful Edwardian building hotel

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.

New owners and a new look for Primrose Valley

With the Primrose Valley now being over a hundred years old, as the new owners, we are treating it to a dramatic refurbishment over the winter period to restore it to its former glory but at the same time introducing a modern twist providing guests with an even warmer, cosier and unique experience.

Each room will be freshly designed with hanging artwork and bespoke pieces, highlighting St.Ives’ coastal and artistic ambience. Many of the rooms enjoy wide views of the Atlantic Ocean, bustling town and the distant landscape of Godrevy Lighthouse.

With our friendly approach our aim is for guests to feel nothing is too much and having explored the town and surrounding areas we hope to enhance your Cornish experience!
