Smarties is a little surf lodge close to both Fistral and Towan beaches - it's within an easy walk to everywhere in Newquay. My son and I stayed here on a surf break - we just needed somewhere clean and convenient to stay. It was ideal for us. Jackie was an amazing host and recommended several places for us to...

Lovely Surf Lodge a few minutes walk from Fistral Beach. Jackie will welcome you with a Beer and Banana bed to your accommodation and give you advice on the best places to eat, surf and spend your time in Cornwall. She organised surf lessons for us too! We spent our time in the room ' Little Fistal' which was clean,...

Came down with two friends for a chilled week and maybe some surfing. Jackie is a star, always happy and smiley and provided us with a well needed beer on arrival. She organised our surf lessons for us - Belushi's, another awesome place - and, although we didn't take her up on it, offered a cooked breakfast every morning that...

We stayed in the double en-suite room for four nights (it has just been redecorated and is cosy, tidy and clean) Well what can we say other than we are so pleased that we found Smarties and Jackie! We came across Smarties whilst looking for somewhere reasonably priced and where we wouldn't have to share a room - It perfectly...

Jackie was brilliant, gave us a warm welcome complete with beer and banana cake, and looked after us really well. Rooms were clean, location was perfect- everything for nights out \ food are within walking distance but it's quiet enough for us to get some sleep- and the vibe was easy going. Great value, we'll go back!

This place should be called Jackies'. It is all about the owner and how she interacts with her guests that makes you feel welcome, relaxed and completely at ease! The location is perfect. Our room was small but perfectly formed, comfortable beds and a good shower! Jackie really looked after us and was always up for a chat when we...

A friend and I stayed at Smarties Surf Lodge for 5 nights and we couldn't have been happier! The rooms are amazing! They are very clean and the decor is warm and modern.

Great location - 2 minutes walk to the town, clean rooms, comfy beds, hairdryer, tea and coffee facilities. We got cold beer and amazing banana cake upon arrival. Jackie is friendly and helpful - she was really patient with my constant changes in our reservation I can only recommend and will be back soon!

Staying at Smarties surf lodge was excellent! My group of 8 had a great time and we were very comfortable there - we felt very safe! It is in a great position (both close to fistral beach but also the town centre). Thankyou Jackie for being a great host! We might have to come and stay again:)
