Gekko Lodge
Ranked #51 of 102 St Ives B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 September 2013

We spent three nights at Gekko lodge (August 2013) and enjoyed it very much as a base to explore St. Ives. Lovely rooms (room 1) with beautiful sea view, modern furniture, really made us feel at home. Great breakfast with lots of delicious home made treats. We would definitely come back next time we are in Cornwall. S&J

We had a wonderful stay at Gekko Lodge for our first family holiday to Cornwall. Catherine made us feel so welcome and gave us great tips on places to visit and eat out. We loved our modern room (Room 1) with sea views, internet access and great natural beauty products and couldn't resist buying some to take home. The breakfasts were just fantastic, delicious smoothies, homemade bread and amazing cooked breakfasts with relaxing music playing in the background! The B&B is within walking distance of the town and also the nice local swimming pool which was great for the cloudier days. We had great day trips to the Eden Project and to St Michael's Mount. Thank you Catherine for making it such a lovely holiday, we hope to come back again.

Room Tip: Lovely sea view from Room 1

We had a great stay in Gekko Lodge. The room (room 1) had a lovely sea view and was very quiet, with a comfortable bed and homemade cookies. Catherine's breakfasts were amazing, and she gave us good tips about St Ives. You can walk to the Tate and Porthmeor Beach from the B&B, and then it's just a short walk into town. St Ives is a lovely base to explore Cornwall, with St Michael's Mount, Lands End and Minack Theatre within a 40 mins drive. Don't miss a stroll around St Ives and watch the sunset from the terrace at Porthmeor Beach Cafe! We'd love to return and stay in Gekko Lodge again.

Room Tip: Room 1 had a smaller bed which was a bit small for our 12 year old (though he didn't fall out...

Coming back to England after living in Australia for most of our lives was a huge holiday for us spending five weeks in all. Our stay in Gekko Lodge was most enjoyable , We found Catherine'shome cooking from her cookies to breakfast very delicious and she also knew her stuff about Cornwall and gave us some great info on places to see. Even though we walked a lot uphill and downhill, walked the beaches, drove to surrounding areas, it was so relaxing to come back to Gekko, to us it felt we were back home in Margaret River, a real beachy atmosphere. We stayed in a few B&B's during our stay but this one topped them all, clean, modern and lovely hosts in Catherine and Sam. We wish them both well and hope one day to visit again.

No hesitation in recommending Gekko Lodge. Our room (no.One) had a wonderful sea view, It and the en-suite were modern and very clean. The owner,Catherine, made us feel at home and she produced wonderful breakfasts to start the day. A 10 minute stroll took us to the centre of St.Ives although it was uphill coming back so it took a few minutes longer but we are OAPs. We were very happy there and would love to go back again.

We have just returned from a long weekend trip to Gekko lodge in St Ives and must say that we have never been to a b&b as good as this one. In fact it was better than most hotels we have been to in UK and abroad. Design of the rooms are very modern and whilst photos on website are good you do not believe how nice they are until you physically see them. Location is perfect... Literally 10 mins walk away from the main beach and that was with a 17 month old. Catherine who owns the b&b is very much focused on giving guests as much a pleasurable experience as possible and the breakfasts are top notch. We stayed in the room in the top floor, which was very spacious and en suite was always very clean. Views over the ocean and beach are lovely. We returned from holiday very relaxed and much credit has to be given to Gekko Lodge for this.

Room Tip: Both rooms have sea views but you see slightly more from the room on the top floor as this is obviou...
