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

Lovely Surf Lodge a few minutes walk from Fistral Beach. Jackie will welcome you with a Beer and Banana bed to your accommodation and give you advice on the best places to eat, surf and spend your time in Cornwall. She organised surf lessons for us too! We spent our time in the room ' Little Fistal' which was clean,... More

Came down with two friends for a chilled week and maybe some surfing. Jackie is a star, always happy and smiley and provided us with a well needed beer on arrival. She organised our surf lessons for us - Belushi's, another awesome place - and, although we didn't take her up on it, offered a cooked breakfast every morning that... More

We stayed in the double en-suite room for four nights (it has just been redecorated and is cosy, tidy and clean) Well what can we say other than we are so pleased that we found Smarties and Jackie! We came across Smarties whilst looking for somewhere reasonably priced and where we wouldn't have to share a room - It perfectly... More

Jackie was brilliant, gave us a warm welcome complete with beer and banana cake, and looked after us really well. Rooms were clean, location was perfect- everything for nights out \ food are within walking distance but it's quiet enough for us to get some sleep- and the vibe was easy going. Great value, we'll go back!
