A great place to stay. Very central location, yet peaceful and quiet. Was slightly out of season with only 2 rooms occupied- great for a restful break. Jackie was very welcoming and helpful. Room was very comfortable and clean with tea making facilities. I managed to find a car parking place very easily.

My friends and I travelled through Cornwall and stopped in Newquay for 2 nights, at Smarties Surf Lodge. Upon our arrival we were provided with banana bread that was still warm and a nice cool beer. The room was clean and the owner was lovely and helpful (and her dogs were adorable). I'd totally recommend staying there!

After being relocated to Smarties after an unfortunate mishap at another local surf lodge I was apprehensive; however Smarties provided an amazing place to stay. The room was clean, warm and welcoming. The location was in walking distance of the main town and beaches for surfing. The owner was very pleasant, with complimentary cake and beer on arrival and happy...

Smarties proved an ideal base to enjoy everything Newquay has to offer by day (sea based activities) and night (pubs, clubs and restaurants). The room was comfortable (6 of us stayed in the room with 3 bunk beds), clean and well equipped with towels, TV and a well stocked tea tray. The breakfast (for an additional £5) was very good...
