This is my first review and I have stayed in many hotels and guest houses over the years. This B&B is something special and it's mostly down to the hard work and wonderful hospitality of John and Amy. We only stayed for two nights as this was tailed on to the back end of a week's holiday in North Cornwall.... More

The owners of the b&b were quite possibly the nicest couple I have ever met. Very attentive and helpful with everything. We arrived early so the guests had only just checked out of the room we were staying in. John very kindly put our bags round the back so we didn't have to carry them back to the car, then... More

We stayed here from 18-20th August 2014. We are a family of five and trying to find accommodation for us is very awkward (you seem to be allowed to have 2 children but no more!). So we were very pleased to find this B&B could fit us all in. The room was lovely, immaculate and had a separate room within... More

Stayed here from 9th to 16th August with my wife and family.The superior room with seaview gave us a stunning view over Newquay Bay and surrounding town. Both this room and the family room were spotless and beds comfortable. Owners John and Amy were disarmingly friendly and the breakfasts were to die for ! I brought a special birthday cake... More

Well what can we say, firstly John and Amy you are both amazing, it really is the little things that count and you've got them and the big things right even giving us extra milks in our room because we'd gone through the ones we had the day before and so we didn't run out again. Clean and well kept... More

No other way to describe this place other than 'Spot on!!' John & Amy have this to a 'T' myself and my partner stayed here July 8th until July 11th. We arrived in Newquay early that day to make the most of our time there, we were aware that check in was not until 3:00pm so we wandered around Newquay... More

If you're looking for somewhere more upmarket and still within a reasonable budget then look no further than Geckos Rest because here you will find it! The room we stayed in was modern and tastefully decorated with lots of little extras which showed how much thought John & Amy have put into their Guest House. The breakfast routine went like... More

My son and I stayed at the Geckos Rest for 6 nights and found the guest house to be extremely comfortable in an excellent location. Amy and John were fabulous friendly hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The room was immaculate, modern and very comfortable, couldn't fault it at all. I would definitely recommend and go back for another... More

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...
