A stand-out Cornwall meeting and events venue: this newly-renovated boutique hotel, close to Porthminster Beach and with sweeping sea views, has two flexible rooms suitable for any sized conference, meeting and event up to 200 attendees.
Meetings & private events work so much better in great venues, in great locations. The St Ives Harbour Hotel & Spa 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 52-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 up to 200 guests, they can accommodate all sizes and types of event, including conferences, workshops, meetings and receptions.
For exceptional eating and drinking during your event, our passionate chefs have prepared a selection of appetising menus - we call it ‘brain food’ – anything from tea & cakes to set menus and platter-style, banquet feasts. And to take the stress out of organisation, and to ensure your event will run smoothly, we’ll provide you with the services of a dedicated event coordinator.
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 45 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 2-minute walk to St Ives Station, or a 10-minute drive to Penzance station where you can catch direct trains to London. Newquay Airport is one hour away by car. Parking is guaranteed for staying guests. Otherwise, on-site parking is on a first come, first serve basis. There are public companies a few minutes’ walk away charging around £8 per day if on-site parking is not available for your attendees.
All of our hotels are accessible, and help is always on hand for those who need assistance.
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 menu options for you to select from. You may create your own bespoke set menu, opt for one of our fixed-priced, set menus.
This impressive space – with jaw-dropping sea views – is ideal for large conferences, receptions and events.
Also featuring stunning sea views, and a private terrace with steps down towards the beach, the second of our two spaces is ideal for smaller conferences, receptions and events.
