Very clean, comfy bed, good breakfast - plenty of it! Nice to have tea/coffee in the room. Great location a few mins from the town centre and not far from the beach. Jackie is friendly and very helpful with info about Newquay and even though she was always rushing about with stuff to do she was never too busy for a chat and she was more than happy to let me use her little garden to store by board and wetsuits. Would definitely stay again.

Stay for a hen do weekend, upon arrival we were given strict instructions on how not to lose our deposit (keep noise min and make sure make up is removed so pillows aren't stained) the room was also to be left spotless which we managed. The only gripe I have about the room is that the bathroom could have been maintenance a bit better as the seals were a bit mouldy. Also because we were told to not to disturb anyone when we came in from a night out, it was a bit naughty that the owner seemed to be having a private party in the room below us whilst we were tucked up in bed!! Overall a good place to stay and definitely nicer than some hostels I've stayed in. The owner was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

Stayed at smarties for a midweek break in August and was very impressed. The location is great, 5 mins walk to fistral, town and only 15 mins walk from the train station. Room was comfortable, standard bunk beds with comfy bedding (2 pillows as promised). The room was ensuite and had a nice sized bathroom. Nice to have kettle with tea and coffee in the room, more supplies available if asked which was great! Jackie was very friendly and welcoming and cooked an excellent breakfast for a fiver! She made you feel at home and had tips on where to go! Having stayed in other surf lodges it was nice to stay somewhere relaxed and homey and good value. Would recommend to others looking for a good base to either go surfing or explore newquay from :)

We were a group of 9 staying at Smarties and all had an excellent time. We had the room of 6 at the front and a room of 3 right up the top of the property. They were both comfortable and clean with tea and coffee making facilities and the showers were constantly hot (which was great after a mornings surfing!) The beds were comfy, the décor was pretty modern and loved all the pictures dotted around. It's about a 5 minute walk to the town centre, as was where we parked our cars. Jackie was excellent, giving us advice on where to go/what to do in the evenings... She even gave us banana cake and a bottle of beer each too! Overall, we had a fantastic time away and hope to come back soon.

I stayed at Smarties with three buddies for a surf weekend and had a fantastic time. We parked our car up the street and it was perfectly safe for the weekend. Jackie made us a fry up each morning which went down very well after the nights out! The room was spotless and had a good shower to warm up after the beach. Only a short walk into town. Very happy we stayed there, will be back again!

Stayed at Smarties with 14 mates on a stag do for three days at the end of June. Jackie (the owner) couldn't have been more helpful or chilled out during our stay which was appreciated given we were all arriving and getting in after a few drinks at very different times. The lodge is located a short walk (3 minutes max) from town and close to the beech so was ideal for us.

Thanks for making us welcome Jackie.
