Excellent cooked breakfast, good range of fruit, yogurts and cereals. Hosts were impeccably polite and helpful. Free parking on site. Beds were extremely comfortable and rooms were spotless! Would stay again, for sure.
John was the perfect host, friendly and helpful without being intrusive, and always with a smile on his face. Geckos Rest is close enough to town and beaches that everything is within a short walk, but far enough away to be quiet and restful, just what we needed for the first 3 days of our 10 day tour of Cornwall and Devon. We reserved a parking space and had no trouble parking, although we needed John's guidance to find the rear car park! Our room was large, clean and comfortable with big windows and a great view of the sea and a nice big bathroom. Downstairs there was a lovely lounge and a bright and welcoming breakfast room to enjoy those wonderful breakfasts! The fresh milk in the fridge to take up to our room was a nice touch, beats those little plastic UHT things. A great place to start our holiday and chill out.
The only thing that I would change is the shower. It's an over-the-bath shower, fed from the taps and although the power was there, it was impossible to keep it at a constant temperature. Just upgrading this to a thermostatically controlled unit would make it a 10 from us, but it's a niggle rather than a major complaint :)
Breakfast was excellent. Location was convenient. Staff were v friendly and efficient. The room was very clean.
Parking was a bit tricky but generally OK.
Location is perfect, room super tidy and comfy. Breakfast was everything you'd ever need.
A really lovely guest house. Modern and well presented. So much attention given to detail. Impeccably clean. The breakfast was delicious. We liked that the breakfast ran from 8.15 - 9.15am. It made us get up early and not waste the day! John and Amy are really great people. They go out of their way to create a home from home. We had a lovely bedroom with beautiful panoramic views of Newquay. We will definitely be back.
Everything was brilliant. Nothing to bring to their attention. John and Amy do a great job of creating a home from home.
