We booked with John and Amy on Booking.com and i m so glad we did, rather than using one of the chained hotels. The reviews of their service go along way and we had a lovely relaxed break from start to finish. We arrived early after a 5 hour drive and got a text when driving down to say our room was ready which was nice. When we arrived John welcomed us in, sorted the room keys and explained service, all covid secure. We were helped to our room and left to refresh ourselves. The rooms in the b&b are a good size and have all the bits required for a stay away and benefit from en-suite. The beds are very comfy for a good nights sleep and the whole venue very clean. We were given times due to covid that suited us for breakfast and the food on offer was plentiful and we could have ordered anything without no hassle or hesitation from the hosts. The quality and quantity of food was excellent and fresh tea and coffee always on offer. The view from the front of the hotel is superb with views of Newquay beach and sea views, when booking we were offered free parking too, which with location is a massive bonus. Without any hesitation when we next visit Cornwall, we will rebook Geckos Rest and would recommend anyone looking for a goodnights sleep and fabulous location to book this B&B and experience it for yourselves. You never get the attention to detail from a chained hotel and the little things go along way.

What an amazing b&b, such unique eye for detail, the whole place was spotlessly clean, the owners are so friendly and helpful, great location only 5 minutes walk to the town but far enough away to not be surrounded by the bustle if you want a quieter place to stay, we will definitely be booking to stay there again.
