Clean, modern facilities and decent breakfast (8:15-9:15 maybe a little restrictive for some). Friendly and helpful welcome and easy walking distance into the town. Recommended - especially for the price.

Thank you for your kind words. We offer packed breakfasts that can be picked up earlier or later than our breakfast times as we are aware that some of our guest are early explorers and others enjoy a more leisurely start in the morning. More

We booked Geckos Rest for a two night stay after reading the brilliant reviews. These reviews were certainly spot on & we cannot fault our stay in any way. The view from our room (10), ideal location, comfortable clean room, excellent breakfast, wifi and attention to detail all made our short stay so memorable. We have already recommended GR to...

We stayed at Gecko's rest for a total of 3 nights, for a wedding. John and Amy had already impressed me prior to arriving as they had text and emailed me to let us know our room was waiting for us. It was this and other nice little touches throughout the stay that contributed to the trip immensely. As the... More

We returned to Geckos rest again this year and were made to feel very welcome by John and Amy. The views from our room were as lovely as we remembered looking out over the sea and town. The centre and one of the beaches is a few minutes walk away. Breakfast was very good with a selection of cereals and... More

Once again Amy and John have outdone themselves. Spent a lovely 3 nights at Geckos Rest. My room was spacious and clean and as for the breakfast - well what can you say? The "Full Monty" certainly lived up to its name. Whilst Geckos doesn't have a massive car park there are plenty of places for street parking nearby. Well... More

We arrived in the afternoon to a lovely warm welcome from John and Amy. We had room 4 at the front of the house, it was light and airy with a big bay window which overlooked the sea. The room was spotless with everything we needed such as hairdryer, toiletries, tea and coffee making facilities and free Wi-Fi. Breakfast was... More
