Stayed for 4 nights in July and were delighted from start to finish. Had been told no space in their free car park but there was a large, reasonable car park directly opposite. A warm welcome and even had our case carried up. We were on the top floor with amazing views of the town below us and incredible sea... More

Just returned from our second visit to Geckos Rest and are pleased to say that our stay was as enjoyable as our first visit. John & Amy were great hosts and nothing was to much trouble. The room (No 10) was very clean and comfortable with lovely views over Newquay bay. In fact, we enjoyed our visit so much, we... More

The Geckos Rest is a lovely hotel in Newquay. It's near the beach. The landlord is very nice. He can tell you all about Newquay and Land's End. The breakfast is more than delicious. If you want to stay in a hotel with nice, chatty people and a relaxed atmosphere, the Geckos Rest is perfect for you!

We stayed at Gecko Rest this weekend, Amy & John were perfect hosts making us feel welcome and couldn't have done more to accommodate us. A spotlessly clean B&B, close to the beach and town. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and look forward to staying again in the future. Thanks again, Jordan & Clare

Spent two nights at Geckos Rest with my partner, this weekend. The owners, John and Amy, were very friendly and welcoming. We stayed in Room 3 which had a sea view at the front of the property, which was bright and airy. The room had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Some could argue that it was too comfortable,... More

From the moment of booking to checking out Geckos Rest was an excellent Guesthouse. Amy gave me local information on the phone & by email prior to arrival, which helped us plan our visit.
