We were four good friends who spent ten days at Gekos Rest. John and Amy did everything for us to enjoy our stay and they certainly succeeded. Awesome service-minded and nice. The rooms were nice and quiet. We had rooms that overlooked the courtyard

We stayed here for a long weekend and I can happily say I would have no hesitation in booking again.Rooms very clean including bathroom and linen,I booked off street parking Newquay town is just 3 minutes walk away but just far enough out of the 'noise/drinking zone.Breakfast was included & comprised normal cereals etc or a hearty home cooked full English .We ate out most evenings however we brought home a Thai takeaway and the owners were only to happy to provide us plates etc this is not a stag/hen venue however would suit couples/family great .Overall very good and thanks to Amy and John for welcoming us as hosts.

There were 7 in our party raging in age from 2 to 60 and were all delightfully taken care of. I was also impressed when i asked the landlord if he could supply an HDMI connect from my laptop to the the large screen TV in the lounge so I could show the days photos to our company. I didn't expect this feature so far from London, but it worked out fine. The breakfast kippers were also excellent.

Cannot fault Amy and Johns hospitality throughout our stay at Geckos Rest. Both were accommodating & friendly.Like all other reviews, they will go out of their way to make your stay a home from home. Views from our room were excellent. The walk to the town was minutes away. Would recommend Geckos Rest to everyone! Thank you Amy and John !

Attention to detail was spot on ! We even had a plastic foot step for chidren in the room. Breakfast was very filling and delicious. Owners are very accommodating and allowed us to have our dinner in the dinning room.I am very fusy with cleanliness and found this guest house extremly clean.We had the family room which was very well laid out with bunk beds and even separete TV & DVD for children.

We will be going there again as I love Cornwall and surrondings. Many thanks to Amy & John for our lovely stay. Mr & Mrs Pert
