“Excellent clean and great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

We stayed here for a long weekend and I can happily say I would have no hesitation in booking again.Rooms very clean including bathroom and linen,I booked off street parking Newquay town is just 3 minutes walk away but just far enough out of the 'noise/drinking zone.Breakfast was included & comprised normal cereals etc or a hearty home cooked full English .We ate out most evenings however we brought home a Thai takeaway and the owners were only to happy to provide us plates etc this is not a stag/hen venue however would suit couples/family great .Overall very good and thanks to Amy and John for welcoming us as hosts.

There were 7 in our party raging in age from 2 to 60 and were all delightfully taken care of. I was also impressed when i asked the landlord if he could supply an HDMI connect from my laptop to the the large screen TV in the lounge so I could show the days photos to our company. I didn't expect this feature so far from London, but it worked out fine. The breakfast kippers were also excellent.

Cannot fault Amy and Johns hospitality throughout our stay at Geckos Rest. Both were accommodating & friendly.Like all other reviews, they will go out of their way to make your stay a home from home. Views from our room were excellent. The walk to the town was minutes away. Would recommend Geckos Rest to everyone! Thank you Amy and John !

Attention to detail was spot on ! We even had a plastic foot step for chidren in the room. Breakfast was very filling and delicious. Owners are very accommodating and allowed us to have our dinner in the dinning room.I am very fusy with cleanliness and found this guest house extremly clean.We had the family room which was very well laid out with bunk beds and even separete TV & DVD for children.

We will be going there again as I love Cornwall and surrondings. Many thanks to Amy & John for our lovely stay. Mr & Mrs Pert

Was very close to booking the Headlands Hotel for the weekend whilst being in Newquay for a wedding. However my girlfriend came across this place. Its painful to admit but she chose well (for once!) My girlfriend and I travel quite a lot and for that reason we use TripAdvisor very regularly however I rarely bother to add my own opinion.

However with this BnB I felt compelled to add our support to the already great reviews that have been added. Firstly the owners, very helpful and friendly from the moment we arrived. We checked in a lot earlier than the requested time with no problems at all. They are both very knowledgeable on the local area and were on hand to advise on restaurants etc..

The location is also really good, the town center is easily accessible on foot.

The BnB itself, is very nice. Our double room was very spacious and clean. (really nice washing powder used on the linen!) The BnB also offers free WiFi which we used a few times and found it to be a really good service.

One minor negative I would mention would be the water pressure. Despite the shower room being very modern the shower itself was fairly weak. However with that being our only disappointment of the stay and a rather minor one at that, it really does reflect how good this place is.

Would definitely recommend this place to friends and family and if we visit Newquay again we will not hesitate to stay at Geckos Rest.
