Stayed here for two nights, there were 4 of us, Jackie the host was amazing and did us a deal to squeeze us in on a busy weekend. The place is clean, plenty of hot water and beds were comfy, we only needed somewhere to rest our heads after a long day and night. Breakfast was just what we needed... More

We actually booked a different accommodation in the first place which apparently is close by but since they made a double booking they organised for us to stay with Jacky which was the best that could have happened to us. The second night we even had our own bathroom, everything was really clean, absolutely comfortable and Jacky so friendly and... More

Jackie has a lovely little surf lodge, booking was very easy and she made us feel welcome right from the start. It is a great location near to fistral beach and town, we walk every where night and day. I would recommend this lodge for anyone staying in Newquay and the other 8 people I went with would agree. It... More

We came back late and in need of some good sleep and thank you to the deposit payed by all guests there was no sound from the stag do also staying. We left after a brilliant... More

A group of us took a short stay here over the weekend for a stag do. The host Jakie greeted us with a beer and some banana bread, gave us some great advise on local drinking spots and was generally a good laugh. Also she cooks a good breakie if you want it. The lodge itself is clean, homey and... More

As someone who has visited Cornwall for years, I'm gutted that I only found out about this little gem only a couple of years ago! Jackie has set up a fantastic surf lodge which is easy to use and is super close to the best beach in Newquay, Fistral! As I've stayed in pretty much every room over the last... More

Had a lovely stay at Smarties lodge for New Years. The owner Jackie made us feel welcome as soon as entered the lodge, and we even had Cava and banana bread made for us to enjoy before going out on New Years Eve! Excellent location, a few minutes walk from Fristal beach and only a 1 minute walk into town!... More

My second stay here and as usual Jackie was super chilled and relaxed about arrival stay and departure. Great little area out back to hang wetsuits up to dry and store boards. If you are lucky you may get to sample some of her delicious banana bread! Definitely will stay again next time in Newquay.

Smarties is a little surf lodge close to both Fistral and Towan beaches - it's within an easy walk to everywhere in Newquay. My son and I stayed here on a surf break - we just needed somewhere clean and convenient to stay. It was ideal for us. Jackie was an amazing host and recommended several places for us to... More
