Just spent three nights at this fabulous B&B. John and Amy were the perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Spotlessly clean with everything you would need. We stayed in the superior twin and had a lovely view over the town and sea. 5 minute walk into the centre and beach. We secured a parking space when booking and Amy directed us to it by phone. Breakfast was delicious - cooked to individual requirements and even had peanut butter and marmite for your toast, yummy! You really should have warned the German guests about the Marmite, John. Had kippers one morning, they were good too. John was a fountain of local information and even told us when the 'Vision Clarification Technician' would be arriving (Window Cleaner - and he really does have this on the side of his Van). A lovely place to stay with fabulous hosts. Hope to be back!

Room Tip: It was very warm on the nights when we were there so we had to sleep with the windows open which mea...

This was our second trip to Geckos Rest and it won't be our last. Located just minutes from the town centre and the beach.
Accommodation was excellent with great views over the sea, breakfast was spot on with a good selection of choices. We where made to feel very welcome by John and Amy and our little one loved it. Can't wait to return.

Geckos rest made for a relaxed stay, perched upon a hill but a few 100 m from the center. Good room, good bed, good shower. Nice owners. Parking at the back was hard to find without directions, but that was quickly sorted.

Another fantastic stay at Geckos rest where we were made to feel very welcome by John and Amy. The accommodation is minutes from the centre of town and the beach. Lovely clean, light and airy room with a beautiful view of the sea. Our little one made to feel very welcome with nothing being too much bother. Look forward to returning again.

Stayed at Gekos Rest in May for 4 nights. The owners John and Amy were welcoming and provided us with great local information. The hotel facilities are excellent and value for money. The hotel is well located for Newquay and makes for and easy escape to explore other nearby places in Cornwall.

Room Tip: Great views from the sea view rooms
