John and Amy were very friendly and welcoming. The room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice. John and Amy knew the area and could recommend places to visit and places to eat.

This was one of our favourite stops. John and Amy were great hosts and gave us a warm welcome. Our rooms were small but spotlessly clean and comfortable. It was a short walk to great restaurants and shops. Would recommend Geckos Rest to anyone.

If you like kippers, I love them, then they're on the menu fresh each morning, just order the day before. There are 3 parking spaces at... More

This hotel was our first accommodation at our trip around Cornwal. It was also the best hotel what we had. Amy and John have a very nice and clean hotel. All furnishings are in a very good condition. The breakfast was ok, but European like alternative European breakfast.
