This place is amazing. The room is very modern, clean, I would even say spotless. The furniture and decor is very modern. The facilities are good too. You can even play on Xbox and Wii, and can get DVDs to watch in your room. The B&B is about 10-12 mins away from the train station and only 5 mins walk... More

Arranging a mini break in Cornwall, I picked this B&B purely on the great reviews. The chance paid off. This B&B is the cleanest place I have ever stayed in. You could not fault anything. The room was spotless and comfortable with absolutely everything you needed. The little touches of toiletries, hairdryer, towels and more were welcomed. Breakfast was cooked... More

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
