An exceptional venue and equally exceptional service provided by the staff! I cannot thank you enough for helping make this very special day a truly magical experience. Based on our experience, I would certainly recommend this hotel.

We just loved getting married here
Venue Service

By Pamintian & Trim Wedding, on 14 May 2018Date of Wedding - 25 Jun 2017

Having fallen in love with St Ives we returned a year later to look for wedding venues and St Ives Harbour Spa Hotel was the first one we saw. We didn't need to see any others. The hotel is gorgeous and the view from the ceremony room over the sea is amazing. The food, I have to say was nothing short of spectacular. Many of our guest made the effort to thank the chief personally. The hotel made fantastic recommendations on local florists, chair covers companies, DJs etc a day all were just wonderful and we couldn't be happier. We also hired the reception room for tea and scones the next day and this was perfect for getting everyone together after the wedding. As for the honeymoon suite, well it's everything you'd expect. Huge and dunning with outstanding views over the beach and sea and we'd highly recommend the breakfast in bed. We wish we had stayed there for longer. The hotel is being refurbished at the moment but the rooms were have seen look amazing. And if by some miracle you feel stressed for any reason the spa below is one of the best. Also, you're walking distance from the station, the stunning beach and the main St Ives area of shops, bars, pubs and restaurants so what more could you actually ask for!

Excellent wedding venue with breathtaking views
Venue Service

By Velasco Appleton, on 14 May 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2017

We attended a wedding but did not stay in the hotel. The wedding was exceptional. The location is stunning. The day went very smoothly as the level of service was faultless and the facilities are excellent...the outdoor areas are spacious, delightful and extremely comfortable. The views from the terrace areas are spectacular and the superb beach is below for photo opportunities. The food was outstanding, both the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet were excellent with quality ingredients, expertly cooked and served piping hot. Again, the service was brilliant with the food served quickly and the drinks constantly replenished by the hard working staff. The only disappointment was the breakfast we had at the hotel the morning after the wedding which according to the groom was not of the high standard experienced on previous visits. The choice was not huge so you would expect everything to be very good. Sadly, the buffet items were not replenished ( croissants ) or were not replenished quickly enough ( muselli ) and the full cooked breakfast was a pretty poor show with no choice offered such as two rashers of bacon,etc and not really enough food to properly discern the quality of the ingredients. Surprisingly, they were unable to cook poached eggs. Still the wedding day was magnificent.

Amazing wedding at an incredible venue
Venue Service

By Emma D, on 14 May 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Apr 2017

The staff bent over backwards to make sure everything went smoothly and were flexible in accommodating what we wanted, making for a truly personal and bespoke experience. The food was delicious, and all my guests commented on how fresh and tasty it was, and what variety there was. The hotel boasts stunning views of Porthminster Beach and we were lucky enough to have rooms that looked out across it, these stunning views can also be enjoyed from the dining area, bar and terraces. We took our vows with the wonderful views behind us, then headed out for canapés and bubbly on the terrace, again taking in the breathtaking scenery. The event planners Sydney, Rebecca and Jasmin were there to coordinate the wedding in the months running up, they were extremely experienced and able to offer advice, which was invaluable especially as we were based 300 miles away and doing all our wedding planning from a distance. Then on the day they were around to make sure everything ran like clockwork, along with the other fantastic staff. They all took the stress and worry out of the planning and we were able to relax and enjoy our day and take everything in instead of being anxious. Then there's the fabulous spa, with a beautiful pool and relaxing terrace overlooking the ocean, a jacuzzi, steam room, sauna a gym. The massage I had was out of this world and topped off a wonderful wedding and break. I can't recommend this hotel enough especially for a wedding, otherwise for a Spa or other break, we can't wait to get back again as soon as possible. Book yourself in otherwise it's your loss ;D

Our wedding 24th August 2013
Venue Service

By Mrs Alexandra Cantelo, on 29 Aug 2013

Rebecca, Serene and Bonita went above and beyond their role of wedding organisers. They are very friendly and more than happy to accommodate for any changes we wished to make. They ensured that the day went without a hitch and really added a personal touch to the whole day. We cannot thank them enough for their hard work and effort in making our day so special.

We had our wedding at the St Ives Harbour Hotel on 29 June, we had the most amazing day, the staff were brilliant, we left everything to them and they didn't disappoint. Would thoroughly recommend it as a wedding venue.

Fairytale Wedding !
Venue Service

By Amanda & Nigel, on 06 Jun 2013

We would recommend this Hotel to anyone wishing to get married in Cornwall. Our Wedding Day 14th April 2013 was faultless. The staff couldn't do enough for us and our guests. The food was gorgeous, the decor of the hotel really elegant and the views were out of this world. Our Wedding Co-Ordinator was fantastic and helped us every step of the way. Our guests were blown away. Wonderful !

One Day's Memories to last a lifetime
Venue Service

By Steve and Clair, on 11 May 2013

We had our wedding here a couple of weeks ago, and we couldn't have wished for a more perfect day. The staff were all fantastic and the Wedding co-ordinators especially were amazing and made our day feel so special. Nothing was too much trouble or bother, stunning views across the sea for everyone to enjoy and a perfect backdrop to the wedding ceremony and wedding breakfast, whilst dancing as the sun went down. Everyone commented on the food being amazing and politeness and friendliness of all staff. This is the perfect venue for your wedding!
