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 too 'full on'. This personal approach sits nicely alongside the boutique touches including big fluffy white towels, a trendy wet room with monsoon shower, a super comfy bed with luxury sheets and other touches such as iPod docking station and eco-friendly toiletries.
We stayed in Room 2 in the attic which has lovely sea views from the window seat (although not when lying in bed – try Room 1 for this) and is nice and spacious for a couple. The steps to the room are quite narrow and steep, but were fine for us. We had a lovely relaxing stay with Catherine and Sam in gorgeous St Ives!
