Just had a fab week in Newquay, lovely surf lodge, very clean and tidy, felt like home. Ideal location, 5 min walk to all bars and restaurants, and bus station.Jackie was super and cooked a great breakfast, much needed after a long journey the day before and prior to a surf lesson. Stayed in 'The Harbor' room, which there was room for 3 , a bunk bed and a single bed, as on my own had plenty of room, bathroom / shower just next door. Great hot shower, which is always very important. Great value .Will definitely stay again, thanks Jackie !

Smarties is a little surf lodge close to both Fistral and Towan beaches - it's within an easy walk to everywhere in Newquay. My son and I stayed here on a surf break - we just needed somewhere clean and convenient to stay. It was ideal for us. Jackie was an amazing host and recommended several places for us to eat - all of which were fantastic.
I will definitely be back to my home from home!

Lovely Surf Lodge a few minutes walk from Fistral Beach. Jackie will welcome you with a Beer and Banana bed to your accommodation and give you advice on the best places to eat, surf and spend your time in Cornwall. She organised surf lessons for us too!
We spent our time in the room ' Little Fistal' which was clean, with very comfy mattresses :) >> Highly Recommend - definitely coming back to master the surf!

Came down with two friends for a chilled week and maybe some surfing. Jackie is a star, always happy and smiley and provided us with a well needed beer on arrival. She organised our surf lessons for us - Belushi's, another awesome place - and, although we didn't take her up on it, offered a cooked breakfast every morning that smelled unreal! The room was clean and just the right size for the three of us, and even with the bathroom being up the hall we never had any issues. Smarties is perfectly located for the town, Towan beach and Fistral beach which are all less than a 15 minute walk - and that's with a twisted ankle!
I'd recommend Smarties to anyone, Jackie is lovely and you couldn't be better located! Thanks for a lovely week!!

We stayed in the double en-suite room for four nights (it has just been redecorated and is cosy, tidy and clean)

Well what can we say other than we are so pleased that we found Smarties and Jackie! We came across Smarties whilst looking for somewhere reasonably priced and where we wouldn't have to share a room - It perfectly fit the bill.

We contacted Jackie via her mobile and managed to secure the room with no problems despite booking very short notice. We arrived mid afternoon and she showed us straight to our lovely room and handed us the customary (as we've read from other reviews!) banana bread and beer and chatted with us for a while. We loved that Jackie took the time to do this and discovered that all the photos and pictures that hang in the rooms and lodge are ones she had taken on her extensive travels :-)

Anyway here's some bullet points that we think will help you make up your mind to stay here:

- Excellent location - The lodge is very near the beach, a 5-10 min walk and the town centre.
- Excellent hospitality - If we needed anything Jackie was more than happy to help. Just knock on her door!
- Excellent breakie - On our last morning nursing a bit of a hangover, we ordered a breakfast to set us up for the day and a long journey back to the midlands. This is very reasonably priced.
- Free tea/coffee and internet!
- Excellent room - The room (and en-suite that we had) were spotless and to a very high standard. We were made up that we found somewhere so nice to stay and were very comfortable and relaxed. The double room is to the back of the property and feels a bit more private.

----------------------------------------
All in all we couldn't have found a better place to stay and highly recommend Jackie and Smarties Surf Lodge. We can't wait to visit again!

Thanks Jackie, love Amanda and Chris
