“My best stay in Newquay so far!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

Amazing place to chill out, definitely recommend to anybody looking for comfy beds, tasteful interior and really clean rooms! After asking around average overpriced places, we dropped in at the surf lodge unannounced and Jackie, an amazingly wam and cheerful lady, made us feel so welcome! would love to say 'like home', but it was way better than that! Did I mention it is situated in a perfect location - 5 mins walk through the golf field to the most visited (and surfed) Fistral beach and 2 mins to town centre and 1 min to sainsburys. I look forward to coming back there soon. Ingrid

A great weeks surfing and good nights out, thank you Jackie for your recommendations on surf spots, hire and bars it has been a pleasure to be a guest. The accommodation is excellent, and great value not to mention just a short walk from the beach. What more could I ask for

Take care, and enjoy christmas hope I get to make it down in the new year.

Just returned from Newquay. Smarties is a great place to stay - clean, excellent value for money, and a great location. Jackie is a fantastic host, knows the town so well and her recommendations are first class. Between the town and Fistral Beach - which is a great location, even in September, to spend a good few hours chilling. Thanks again Jackie, first class hotel.

We have just returned from a hen party weekend at Smarties Surf Lodge and all 17 of us had a fantastic time. Accomodation is simple but very clean and excellent value. Location is perfect just a short walk from the town centre and close to Fistral beach. Jackie is a fantastic source of local knowledge and on her recomendation we went to the Lewinnick Restaurant on the Friday night which was fab (cliff top restaurant not far from Fistral with amazing food). Jackie also arranged surf lessons which we would all definitely do again.
Would highly recomend the breakfasts!!!
We would definitely go back again - thank you Jackie and Teddy!!

Room Tip: Use manned carpark located on roundabout before Crantock St (£5 per day) - street outside lodge gets...

Jackie was exceptionally friendly, helpful and accommodating for our group, the rooms were very clean with nice en-suite bathrooms and really comfortable. Her cooked breakfasts are also excellent and if you need any helpful info about what's happening in Newauy, Jackie is the person to ask! I would definitely recommend Smarties to anyone wanting a central, friendly lodge to stay in when visiting Newquay, it's a short walk to the beach and the town centre so is ideally situated. Smarties really was the perfect place for us to stay for our weekend in Newquay.

The owner is great and the atmosphere is free and chilled.

Would recommend to anyone going for the beautiful surfing side of Newquay as only short walk dowb to Fistral. Also good for those wanting to avoid screaming children and those stags and hens.

Stayed here for a weekend with four mates (10th - 12th June 2011) and really enjoyed it. The owner Jackie was extremely friendly and made our stay a lot of fun. The rooms are quite modern, very clean and the beds are extremely comfortable, which is quite a suprise for a hostel. Ive stayed at the Reef surf lodge before but you cannot compare the two. This ones so much nicer and the rooms are bigger with decent floor space. The location is great too as just a couple of minutes walk and you are either in Newquay main town or the other way fistral beach. Perfect. Oh and if you want to do any activities speak to Jackie as she has great knowledge and can save you money on surf lessons etc. Also if you want to avoid the chavvy nightspots she will tell you where to go. She advised us to go to the Red Lion for live music and Belushis and both were spot on. Good times.
