This was without a doubt the best place I've stayed in. The facilities were spotless and modern. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Our breakfast was always very good and more than enough food. The room was comfortable with the best view of Newquay. Absolutely the best choice for a place to stay in Newquay!

Had such an amazing time in Cornwall, topped off with the service provided by Amy and John in Gecko's Rest. The B&B was spotless, attention to detail was impressive, breakfast was way better than expected with lots of choice and Amy and John were attentive and friendly.

Very very nice stay. Attention to detail was wonderful. Hosts second to none, and delightful stay. We would recommend this BandB to anyone, although they get booked up quickly....no wonder. Just lovely experience and we would stay again.

Clean, spacious, everything provided in the room and at breakfast to make your stay enjoyable. Hosts, friendly and helpful. We had a sea view bedroom which we loved. Parking provided was a huge boon as the town was just a short walk away. Would definitely return.

A lovely bed and breakfast in a fantastic location. Just a 5 minute walk into Newquay town. The rooms are emasculate with crisp white linen and soft towels. Having traveled to Newquay on may occasion this is definitely one of our top rated stays. John and Amy were very polite and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was of a...

We had a great time seeing the wonderful scenery in the area and went to Port Isaac to watch filming of Doc Martin which was a bonus. We used Geckos Rest as our base and we loved it. Great people,lovely breakfast and the room had a view overlooking the coast,couldn't wish for anymore

“Enjoyed our stay and would definately recommend. The room was spotless with a beautiful view. If anything the only tip to improve would be to put some type of blinds or shutters at the window as due to being a front view location we had to keep closing the curtains when showering and getting ready therefore losing the view and daylight.”
