I can't recommend Geckos Rest highly enough. From the moment I booked over the phone, I knew my stay in Newquay would be a fantastic one. In fact, Amy and John made us feel welcome even before we walked through the door – the text telling us our room was ready hours before the official check-in time saw to that.... More

Just left gecko rest after a 2 night stay. It was our 1st visit to Newquay and we will definitely return one day. We haven't got one negative thing to say.

Situated just a few minutes walk away from the harbor, it is the ideal place to stay in Newquay if occasional noise at night doesn't bother. Very friendly and very ready to fulfil our wishes. Breakfast ok with a large choice of different food.

A great stay and definitely on my list for a repeat visit. It's a perfect bed and breakfast venue. We are two seniors in our late 70's and visited this venue together with and at the suggestion of our Granddaughter and her partner. The place was spotless and welcoming.

Excellent room, great views, lovely people, very clean and fresh and a credit to the b&b world. John & Amy could not have made our getaway any better. Fab Breakfast and even nicer Chocolates in our room for our anniversary. A small walk into town and easy reach of the many beaches in the area.
