Stayed 3 nights at Geckos Rest a week ago and had a wonderful, relaxing time. The B&B is well situated being just a 2 minute walk to the town centre, with plenty of places to eat nearby. The room was a good size and had a lovely sea view. Breakfast was great and there was plenty to choose from. John... More

John and Amy are the perfect hosts to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We have just got back from a two night stay and can't recommend enough. The location is perfect for a quick walk into town and the view from our room (top floor) - stunning! John gave us some great tips on visiting St Ives and... More

Our first time in Newquay and we found this fantastic place. The Geckos Rest is a very friendly cosy B&B, very nice breakfast choice, very clean and comfortable and very close to the town centre! Thank you Amy & John, you certainly going to see us again, your place is a little gem :)

The property itself is unexceptional. What makes it exceptional is that everything about it is perfect. Immaculate decor and furnishings. Everything is new and works and is spotless. Breakfasts are great. And the owners genuinely care for all their guests. Nothing is too much trouble. Every little detail is covered. For example on the day of my departure I had... More

Amy and I are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us even with the early departure and thank you for your very kind words. Hopefully we will see you again soon so you can walk more of the coast path. More

Spent a fantastic weekend at Geckos Rest. Definitely hotel standard on a B & B budget. The rooms are modern and clean and Amy knocks up a mean Full Monty. Brilliantly situated close to town and the beach and nothing too much trouble for John or Amy. Would definitely recommend and I will be staying again.

This is my third visit to this excellent B&B, John and Amy have hosted yet another great stay. As per my previous review, the location is superb, just a few minutes walk from the town and not much further to the beach, and the room I stayed in was immaculate, hotel standard, once again. The breakfast was already excellent so... More

A five minute walk from the centre of the town and very friendly hosts. The room was clean and modern and breakfast was tasty. John had some excellent suggestions and tips on places to visit while we were there.

This is my first review and I have stayed in many hotels and guest houses over the years. This B&B is something special and it's mostly down to the hard work and wonderful hospitality of John and Amy. We only stayed for two nights as this was tailed on to the back end of a week's holiday in North Cornwall.... More

The owners of the b&b were quite possibly the nicest couple I have ever met. Very attentive and helpful with everything. We arrived early so the guests had only just checked out of the room we were staying in. John very kindly put our bags round the back so we didn't have to carry them back to the car, then... More

We stayed here from 18-20th August 2014. We are a family of five and trying to find accommodation for us is very awkward (you seem to be allowed to have 2 children but no more!). So we were very pleased to find this B&B could fit us all in. The room was lovely, immaculate and had a separate room within... More
