“Perfect base for a surf trip”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

Friendly surf lodge run by the delightful Jackie Smart. I've just come back from my latest trip to Newquay and the room I stayed in was ideal. The room was in excellent condition and the facilities are all spotless and cleaned every day. For an extra fiver Jackie sets you up with a great breakfast and is really cool with what time you want it, since we all have different times of day we like to surf! A well-run place to stay which will always be my first port of call when going to Newquay. Highly recommended.

Luckily for us, a last minute cancellation meant we had accommodation for the night here -

Good points: Jackie was very accommodating with our late booking. The B&B was easy to find, nice decor inside and great location for Fistral Beach

Not so good: I've been very lucky with some of the places I've stayed in the area, and maybe it's for this reason that even with money knocked off our room, it still didn't work out as good value as other places we stayed at a comparative standard. Still, compared to some of the pricing I've seen for accommodation in Newquay, it still works out an affordable option.

The accommodation was pleasant and Jackie, the owner, was lovely at the beginning of the holiday. However, she said that breakfast was included free of charge, which when we got there she said it wasn't and you had to pay 5 pounds if you wanted a full breakfast. Also, we had to give in "bomb" money at a sum of £30 each which we were all also unaware of. At the end of the holiday she claimed that she had sent an e-mail in which there was an attachment where it was there stated, which may have been true, but she should have DEFIANTLY made it a lot clearer. On the morning which were were due to leave, Jackie came in swearing how the room was an utter state, when really there were a few bits and pieces of popcorn on the floor which could easily be cleared up if she vacuumed it, she was being very unreasonable and her language was in no way shape or form necessary!! And to top everything off, she was ment to give us our bomb money back on the day we leave, but she said she was locked out of her flat and couldn't give it to us there and then, it was all a bit suspicious if you ask me, but luckily, the next day money was transferred into out accounts after asking her to do so. Over all I would NOT stay here again and would NOT recommend it

Ideally situated for us surfing fistral, as well as access into town. With us grabbing an early morning surf jackie was incredibly accommodating by sorting our breakfasts for 11am which was ideal for us on our return from the beach! Would definitely return. Many thanks jackie

Thanks Jackie, what an amazing weekend we had staying at smarties for my hen weekend. We hired the full accommodation as we had 18 people which was great. Breakfast was lovely and well worth the money. We luckily had a really hot weekend and smarties was surprisingly cool inside which was lovely... I even thought they had air con it was that good! My only minor point was my bed was very lumpy, but I think it was only mine, all the other girls were fine! Hey, I don't expect 5* at such a good price! Jackie was the perfect host and even sorted us with a restaurant booking for the Sat night which was beautiful. Thoroughly recommended.

Stayed here 18/05 for 2 nights with another 12 girls for a hen weekend,it was very clean and very modern :-) Jackie was a great laugh and always there to help if there was anything you needed to know! Walking distance to town centre is about 5 minutes away (depends how slow or fast you walk ;-)) Would definitely stay here again if we ever go back to Newquay... Also Jackie's fry ups are the best ;-)
