My boyfriend and I stayed for 2 nights, 20th - 22nd July and were impressed from the minute we arrived. The setting is perfect, short walk from everything but a peaceful spot and with stunning views. John and Amy were so friendly and accommodating, the entire building from outdoor in is spotless! Everything was cosy, clean and homely, outstanding breakfast... More

This was our first trip to Cornwall and we used Tripadvisor to choose this B&B which we booked for 7 nights. All I can say is what a gem of a place this is. We booked directly with them as we wanted to reserve car parking and this was handled very professionally by the owners, John & Amy. We paid... More

Just returned from a fantastic short break in Newquay. Amy and John were excellent attentive hosts. Geckos rest is immaculate, peaceful and in an excellent location. The breakfast was great including a selection of vegetarian options. We will be back!

A year on from our last visit and still excellent. The place is a credit to John and Amy who keep the place immaculate. On being told the menu had slightly changed from last year for breakfast, it seemed irrelevant as we ordered exactly what we wanted and got it!! Perfectly cooked by Amy and served by John!! Same room... More

We stayed for three nights. We would definitely recommend paying a little extra to get a sea view room. We had a lovely view of the sea and all over Newquay. John and Amy are great hosts, they gave us lots of recommendations of things to do and places to visit. Breakfast was lovely. It is a short walk to... More

Myself and my husband enjoyed a weeks stay at the beginning of June at Geckos rest, we loved the superb double room with sea views. It was very comfortable and clean. John and Amy were very friendly and provided excellent breakfast room service. We would recommend this guest house to anyone who would be thinking of staying in Newquay.
