Beautiful room & convenience location. We stayed on the top floor which was a nice comfy room with gorgeous views of the ocean. En-suite is a clean, modern facility with very nice bath products. Host Catherine, makes a very nice made to order breakfast with delicious home-made bread. We felt very comfortable & Catherine gave us some great hiking/walking path... More

The Gekko Lodge was a real find! We had the top floor room with the bay window seat to sit and look out to sea. Wonderful! The room was very clean and well-appointed with thoughtful touches to make sure that our stay was rewarding. Catherine gave us a good orientation upon our arrival, but the information notebook in the room... More

We booked a last minute weekend break at Gekko Lodge and are so glad we chanced upon this amazing little bed and breakfast. From its lococation on a quiet private road, with parking, to the fantastic views from our spacious room (not to mention the brilliant shower). Catherine was a charming hostess, with plenty of advice on things to do... More

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
