Room was lovely, amazing view! Breakfast set us up for the day- didn't need any lunch, and one day didn't even need dinner! It was really lovely that there was a fridge in the room, they noticed that we were using it and put out champagne flutes for us. A really nice touch. Catherine gave really good tips about places...

We had a fantastic week when staying at Gekko Lodge. Catherine could not have been more helpful both in recommending things to do, and in providing superb accomodation. Our room was clean, well presented and had a fantastic view. We were made to feel very welcome and the breakfasts were excellent. If you want somewhere to stay in St Ives,... More

We stayed here in 2010 and went again this year. We love the view of Porthmeor: you can see what the waves are like as soon as you get up. Hostess is excellent: fresh treats like melon or smoothies to supplement breakfast every day and introduced us to the other guests so we could chat if we wanted too. Lovely... More

We were cooked a tasty breakfast a little later than most guest houses, to our request.. much appreciated. The location is fine for... More

We spent 3 nights in Room 1 at Gekko Lodge with our 4 year old. The stay was very comfortable and hostess very welcoming. The rooms are spacious,clean and modern with nice views. Room 1 does have a lovely view from your bed and has bigger windows, although when I was given the choice, I couldn't decide, as they were... More

Gekko lodge is a perfect blend of homely and boutique. As it only has 2 bedrooms there is a real personal touch, with quirky art and photos on the wall and bespoke, hand-made furniture throughout the house, along with a much-appreciated parking space. Catherine also whips up a tasty breakfast with plenty of choice and is very welcoming without being... More

Very hospitable, excellent hostess. Rooms are a bit more modestly sized than I imagined from the photos, but we were two adults and two young children - and it's difficult to find accommodation for a family like this in upmarket B&Bs in St Ives- so this was acceptable. Very comfortable bed, fantastic view, kettle supplied with coffee, tea, etc, digital... More

This is a great little B&B away from central St Ives, given how small the town is this wasn't much of an issue. The host was great, friendly and informative on the local area. Could not fault the breakfast, Cornish portions certainly set you up for the day. The room was clean, bright and more than enough room for the... More
