A stand-out Cornwall meeting and events venue, our boutique hotel, close to Porthminster Beach has sweeping sea views to inspire creativity.
Meetings & private events work so much better in great venues, in great locations. The Harbour Hotel St Ives is idyllically positioned in arguably the most charismatic town in Cornwall – it’s just steps from Porthminster Beach, and a short stroll from postcard-perfect St Ives harbour.
Fully renovated in 2018, and with jaw-dropping views out to sea from many bedrooms and the two function rooms, this 50-room gem is also now rightly considered one of Cornwall’s best event venues. The hotel has two impressive spaces to choose from, listed below, both with panoramic sea views. With flexible capacity of up to 200 guests, they can accommodate all sizes and types of event, including conferences, workshops, meetings and receptions.
For before and after your event, we can offer attendees discounted room rates for those wishing to stay, access to the luxury spa, and an excellent restaurant and vibrant bar. It’s next to the beach, where the St Ives Surf School offers surfing and coasteering, and a short walk to the excellent Tate Art Gallery. The world-famous Eden Project is just 1 hour and 30 minutes away by car. See our staff’s recommendations of the best activities, attractions & events in St Ives and the wider Cornwall area here.
The hotel is a 5-minute walk to St Ives Station or a 25-minute drive to Penzance station where you can catch direct trains to London. Newquay Airport is one hour away by car. Parking is available at the hotel but charged at £10 per day. There are public companies a short walk away including the leisure centre (long stay, 10 minute walk away) and the train station car park (a 5 minute walk away).
Here at Harbour Hotels, we understand that exceptional food & drink can enliven even the most arduous meeting or event; indeed, good ‘brain food’, as we call it, can boost your meeting’s productivity, and do wonders for your attendees’ event experience (and return rate).
Our passionate chefs have created a number of different set menu options for you to select from.
This impressive space – with jaw-dropping sea views and natural daylight – is ideal for large conferences and networking events.
Also featuring stunning sea views with natural daylight,and a private terrace with steps down towards the beach, the second of our two spaces also has its own private bar and toilets as well as air conditioning and is ideal for smaller conferences, receptions and events.
