We had a great time seeing the wonderful scenery in the area and went to Port Isaac to watch filming of Doc Martin which was a bonus. We used Geckos Rest as our base and we loved it. Great people,lovely breakfast and the room had a view overlooking the coast,couldn't wish for anymore

The owners couldn't have treated us any better. Warm, friendly, hardworking and helpful about location and things to do, great sense of humour. The room was spotless, comfortable bed, great shower and a great selection of dvds to watch in your room and other entertainment downstairs. Onsite parking made day trips easier, close to the front of Newquay. Would highly...

“Enjoyed our stay and would definately recommend. The room was spotless with a beautiful view. If anything the only tip to improve would be to put some type of blinds or shutters at the window as due to being a front view location we had to keep closing the curtains when showering and getting ready therefore losing the view and daylight.”
