My friend and I stayed at Gecko's Rest for four nights during half term and absolutely loved it. John and Amy, the owners were completely brilliant and couldn't have done more to ensure our stay was a good one. Our room was kept beautifully clean and was a lovely size with a great sea view (when the fog cleared!). Top... More

We have just returned from a short break at Geckos Rest and had a lovely time. We had a superior room with a great view over the town and bay which was immaculately clean and very comfortable. Ann and John do everything possible to make their guests feel welcome and, as well as a delicious breakfast, we're happy for us... 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

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

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
