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. Breakfast was excellent and John and Amy were great hosts. There is parking across the street and it's less than...

Incredibly clean B&B with faultless attention to detail, great breakfasts and perfect hosts all made our break in Newquay very memorable and enjoyable. John and Amy made us feel very welcome, John helped us with luggage (we were on the top floor) and gave us good tips on the local area, pubs & eateries etc. Both were very accommodating to...

Had a fantastic two weeks at the geckos rest. Perfect hosts, spotlessly clean room, welcoming all round. Short walk to town and beach, beautiful views from the b&b. Newquay was totally beautiful, stunning beaches, Eden project fascinating and lands end worth a visit and try Tues/Thur eve for firework display (during summer). Plenty of nice restaurants in and around Newquay.

Third time back, absolutely fantastic wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else when visiting Cornwall. John and Amy couldn't be any better hosts. The rooms are great, in fact the whole place is. Looking forward to another stay next year. Lee, Jayne and Jacob.

We loved our stay in Geckos Rest as it was everything you could ask for. Spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, great location, brilliant breakfast. Fantastic hosts. John and Amy were very welcoming hard working and helpful in every aspect. John helped us pick a bus tour. Magical mystery tour. We were amazed at how much was packed in to this day...

Lovely little place. People who run this place are very friendly and welcoming. Great location for town and beach. The rooms are of a good size and clean. Beds were comfy, slept well. Breakfast was nice, local food used. Only disappointing thing about the entire stay was that the shower wasn't up to much. Lacked power. Otherwise this is a...
