“Perfect location and great banana cake!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Great location - 2 minutes walk to the town, clean rooms, comfy beds, hairdryer, tea and coffee facilities.
We got cold beer and amazing banana cake upon arrival.
Jackie is friendly and helpful - she was really patient with my constant changes in our reservation

I can only recommend and will be back soon!

Staying at Smarties surf lodge was excellent! My group of 8 had a great time and we were very comfortable there - we felt very safe! It is in a great position (both close to fistral beach but also the town centre). Thankyou Jackie for being a great host! We might have to come and stay again:)

Room Tip: Everyone is a good one!

Spotlessly clean. Reasonable price. Great hospitality. Perfect location for fistral and Towan beaches.

The breakfast is great too.

Decor is modern and and fresh. It's clearly a 'Labour of love' for Jax the owner and she makes you feel welcome.

We booked 6 months in advance and the communication with Jax was great.

12 of us stayed for a hen weekend and we had a great time.

Came in late April, staff extremely friendly and attentive, beer and cake on arrival won me over from the start! The sennen cove room was very nicely presented and clean with a roomy ensuit ideal for couples. Located 5 mins from the t/c and free parking before peak season. I shall be staying here again :)

The wife and I stayed here for our 1st wedding anniversary. We stayed in the desperate double room, the room was clean and comfortable and Jackie had arranged for some flowers, chocolates and a bottle of bubbly for my wife (at a small extra charge). Could not fault the location, 5 minutes walk to all the bars and most importantly for us the beaches. We visit Newquay at least 2-3 times a year and now we have found Smarties, we will deffinately be back. The only very very minor bad point was no lock on the bathroom door, which meant when we had the windows open it tended to blow open. Overall Smarties is an excellent place to stay and we would recommend it to anyone who doesn't like having to pay for taxis or busses to get to the day/night life if Newquay. Thanks for making our 1st anniversary special Jackie.

Quality long weekend had! Location is ideal, 5 minute walk to the bars etc
Hospitality - Jackie is a legend! She kindly arranged for us to go surfing which I would highly recommend. Anything you need to know just ask, Jackie is more than happy to help where possible. Local knowledge is the key! This was my 2nd visit to Smarties/Newquay and I am so glad I went back.

Smarties surf lodge was a brilliant find! Atlantic reach on the outskirts of Newquay called me with 2 weeks to go, cancelling my booking for 17 people for a friends hen weekend - with it being bank holiday weekend no one was able to help - other than the incredible Jackie at Smarties! She wedged us all in and looked after us all, it was certainly so so much better than it would have been at our previously booked accommodation! She baked us cake on arrival and served us cold beer, made us all an incredible breakfast in the morning and let us use her breakfast room for games and fun before our 2 minute stroll into town!
We will all certainly be looking to return and cannot thank Jackie enough for her hospitality, great humour, lovely comfy beds and beautiful décor. Totally fab!xxx

Room Tip: all are lovely!
