If you're looking for somewhere homely & chilled this is the B&B for you, Catherine is incredibly welcoming & helpful with tips on where to explore & great places to eat, she also cooks a mean breakfast. Opening the curtains in the morning to the sea view with distant surfers is the perfect way to start your day in Cornwall.... More

We stayed at the Gekko Lodge for a week in the summer and had a great time! It was just what we were looking for in a B&B: quiet, peaceful and in an ideal location for wandering into and around St Ives. Our room on the first floor was spacious and comfortable, with huge windows and a great view of... More

We stayed with our eight week old son in this fantastic b&b and found the most welcoming environment one can dream of! The uninterrupted seaview from our room was simply stunning! The room is spacious and very clean, with plenty of attention to many details, including a selection of hand made natural soaps and shampoos. The location is idillic, and... More

This bnb is great, the breakfast are wonderful and the rooms are very comfortable and clean. The only thing to take in to consideration is the location. It is about a 10 minute walk in to st ives itsself and you have to walk down a very steep hill to get there. So as you can imagine the walk back... More

We spent a peaceful three nights here. Catherine was an excellent host, cooking delicious filling breakfasts. The view from the window was excellent on the top floor and the walk-in wetroom/shower was an unexpected bonus. Would thoroughly recommend staying here.

Really nice B&B in St Ives, great views from our bedroom and its a really nice walk into town from there and the journey back helps with the digestion of the evening meal. Catherine was a nice hostess with good advice on where to walk and eat, breakfast was great with a good choice, the room was very comfortable. We... More

This is a great little B&B with just two rooms, which was a plus for us as it was quiet and felt a little like a home from home rather than a more impersonal hotel-style place. The location was great as well - don't be put off by looking at a map and thinking it's far from the town itself:... More

Took my Mum to the steep slopes of st Ives and we had a great time. Catherine is a great host and the room (at the top) was lovely. It has an excellent wet room, beautiful views of the bay and a handy fridge which we stuffed with wine. Catherine was kind enough to supply us with glasses and fresh... More

Location is always important for us and Gekko Lodge was a good location, it was an easy walk down into town although walk back up hill all the way not so easy. We had room 2 which is on the top floor and although the stairs up to it are quite narrow and steep this was only difficult with suitcases... More

I spent five days and nights at Gekko Lodge in St.Ives (mid-September 2013). After a long journey I had a lovely welcome from Catherine who brought me nice cup of tea and freshly-baked cookie. This was a very good start indeed! My room (Room 1) was spotless and comfortable with great views over Porthmeor bay. I had the big comfy... More
