We stayed at gekko lodge between Christmas and new year and thoroughly enjoyed our time in st Ives. The room was very spacious and nicely decorated. It was nice and warm and quiet. Catherine was friendly and helpful and cooked a lovely breakfast. We have recommended the b&b to friends and family hope to return.

A two night stay in November 2001. Very comfortable bed, nicely furnished room, with stunning sea and coastal views. Excellent breakfasts and very friendly hosts, who couldn't do enough to oblige. A very enjoyable stay.

We had a long weekend staying in Gekko lodge recently and found it to be a great B+B. Location perfect for anywhere in St Ives with the added bonus of parking which I understand can be a problem in St Ives during the busy months. Lovely bright, clean room and ensuite and great sea views. Bathroom cleaned daily and a...

Passing 2 nights at GEKKO-LODGE St. Ives with our 13y old daughter we had e very friendly, comfortable stay. Gekko Lodge is small but very cozy, with absolut cleanliness, new furniture and the hostmother Catherine does everything to let you enjoy the stay. It can be recommended fully, we would rechoose it any time.

Although the accommodation was very nice and spotlessly clean we were taken aback to discover that it was in fact an attic room. This had not been clear on the website. While it didn't say that the room was on the first floor the way it had been presented seemed to suggest it was. i.e. pictures of the interior rooms...

Our stay at Gekko Lodge was a very comfortable experience. The contemporary style of the bedroom and wet room was fabulous. Fresh coffee in the room a real treat - and a treasure to find such a quite street. Breakfast was excellent. Catherine and Sam have got it spot on! We'll definitely recommend it, and make a return visit ourselves....
