From, the booking to the departure, everything was catered for including, advice on where to eat, how to get about, where to visit. The hotel was spotless, the seaview rooms breath taking. The décor was lovely, every inch of detail had been taken care of, even down to the different salt and pepper pots at breakfast! The lounge had a... More

We stayed with Amy and John at Geckos Rest for three nights at the end of December. We were looking for a relaxing stay and this is just what we got. The room was spotlessly clean and warm (important as it was very chilly out). We enjoyed playing the board games provided in the sitting room with an endless supply... More

There's not much I can add that hasn't already been said about Geckos rest, but it is definitely a great find. They richly deserve the high rating. Amy and John are brilliant hosts, the rooms are clean, very comfortable and come with free WiFi. The breakfast is also excellent. It's a 5 min walk to town, so it's a great... More

An ordinary looking terraced property has been turned into a real gem by John and Amy. Our room was comfortable, bright and clean, with everything you could want provided. In fact, this was true of the whole house; and John and Amy were most friendly and helpful, always at pains to help guests feel at home: they managed to create... More

Thank you for your lovely review. Amy and I are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us even if our Marmalade was not to your taste :-). Hopefully we will be able to host you again in the near future. More

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
