We stayed in room no.1 which overlooks the sea from a nice and big window. The room was not that big, but more than just clean---super comfortable and we felt happy when we were on the way back to the room at the end of a day. It was a bit hard to find the location at first, because we arrived in St.Ives at night by train, but nonetheless once you find the way, it is not far from the town center despite a bit steep slope.
It would be desirable if the room had a bath tub, but I understand it is difficult to wish for it for the modest accommodation fee. Overall, it is almost perfect. I really wish to revisit St.Ives again (hopefully when it is less windy...haha) and stay at Gekko Lodge. Honestly speaking, it was more comfortable for us to stay than more expensive hotel in Nice, where we had visited the week before.
Lastly, but not least, Catherine is really a nice host and also we loved the breakfast she cooked every morning. She offered us various kinds of breakfast and we requested different one every morning. They were the best breakfast ever in UK.
Looking back the stay in Gekko Lodge has made me feel like going back to St.Ives now! I can assure you that it is the place to stay in St. Ives.
