Great breakfast very well cooked and first class ingredients. Have been to another in Newquay of the same star rating but didn't compare. Gecko's Rest is a personal feeling...

This was one of our favourite stops. John and Amy were great hosts and gave us a warm welcome. Our rooms were small but spotlessly clean and comfortable. It was a short walk to great restaurants and shops. Would recommend Geckos Rest to anyone.

What a lovely place this is, clean bright and fantastically friendly. Amy and John are the perfect hosts. The breakfasts are anything but ordinary, anything you need they'll do there best to sort it. If you like kippers, I love them, then they're on the menu fresh each morning, just order the day before. There are 3 parking spaces at...

This hotel was our first accommodation at our trip around Cornwal. It was also the best hotel what we had. Amy and John have a very nice and clean hotel. All furnishings are in a very good condition. The breakfast was ok, but European like alternative European breakfast.

Cannot go wrong with this top class B&B. Other reviews say it all. Immaculately clean; very quiet; very comfortable; great central location and above all very welcoming hosts. Excellent served breakfasts. If coming by car then parking can be an issue because there are only three spaces available at the rear of the premises and these are on a first...

Geckos rest is by far one of the better B&Bs we have stayed at. The room was spacious and the bed massive, it was so comfy, it made for one of the best nights sleep I've had in a while.
