Obviously it ticks all the boxes for clean, modern, great location, but here's why I loved it... 1. Perfect poached eggs. Everyday. Marmite for your toast too. 2. Magic Mike, Point Break and Dirty Dancing in the DVD library... (even though we didn't get any time to watch DVDs!) 3. Gecko decorations hidden everywhere, but tastefully done. No darts players...

We have just spent 2 nights at Geckos Rest. We had a fantastic room, perfect for a family of four. The layout is very clever, allowing the children to be in a separate space to us. The beds were extremely comfortable, the view was simply stunning, and the room was very well appointed and spotlessly clean. John & Amy are... More

After looking for a B&B in Newquay that wasn't too expensive and reading the excellent reviews the Geckos Rest seemed to fit the bill for 2 nights stay for our 10th anniversary. We were shown to a beautiful large bright and airy room with sea view. It was absolutely immaculately clean!! Not even a water mark on the tiles over... More

This was our second time at Gecko's Rest and it was every bit as enjoyable as our first. The superior top floor room we stay in is more like a very nice hotel than a B&B. Very clean and well appointed with a fantastic view. Well placed in Newquay and perfect for getting around Cornwall. The food is excellent and... More

John & Amy are perfect hosts who have thought about everything their guests might want and go out of their way to provide it. Well cooked breakfasts, which you can even eat as a takeaway if you want to beat the crowds to the beach in the morning! A beautiful dining room from which to watch the state of the... More

The overall experience was excellent. We have arrived late in the evening and the landlord were perfectly happy and checked us in. We have booked a sea-view room and it was newly furnished and spotless. The breakfast was fab too. Would recommend to go again.

Just spent three nights at this fabulous B&B. John and Amy were the perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Spotlessly clean with everything you would need. We stayed in the superior twin and had a lovely view over the town and sea. 5 minute walk into the centre and beach. We secured... More

This was our second trip to Geckos Rest and it won't be our last. Located just minutes from the town centre and the beach.

Geckos rest made for a relaxed stay, perched upon a hill but a few 100 m from the center. Good room, good bed, good shower. Nice owners. Parking at the back was hard to find without directions, but that was quickly sorted.
