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

We spent three nights at Gekko lodge (August 2013) and enjoyed it very much as a base to explore St. Ives. Lovely rooms (room 1) with beautiful sea view, modern furniture, really made us feel at home. Great breakfast with lots of delicious home made treats. We would definitely come back next time we are in Cornwall. S&J

We had a wonderful stay at Gekko Lodge for our first family holiday to Cornwall. Catherine made us feel so welcome and gave us great tips on places to visit and eat out. We loved our modern room (Room 1) with sea views, internet access and great natural beauty products and couldn't resist buying some to take home. The breakfasts... More

We had a great stay in Gekko Lodge. The room (room 1) had a lovely sea view and was very quiet, with a comfortable bed and homemade cookies. Catherine's breakfasts were amazing, and she gave us good tips about St Ives. You can walk to the Tate and Porthmeor Beach from the B&B, and then it's just a short walk... More
