Stay here regularly for a gentleman’s surfing weekend. Jackie runs a nice place. Rooms are clean, showers are hot and theres hanging space out the back for wetsuits.
If you are unlucky there might be a stag party booked in.., but then this is Newquay and it goes with the territory.

Booked this last minute after reading the reviews and it was great. The room we stayed in (Sennen cove) was spot on with brew facilities included. The whole place was spotless and with a good breakfast every day to set us up for the activities that Jackie the lovely host set up for us.
Location was great I would definitely recommend it and stay again.

Myself and two teenagers stayed for a week between 31st July and 6th August 2017. We would all highly recommend this Lodge to anyone visiting Newquay (especially if you have active teenagers!). Even before we left, the kids were asking me if we could book up again (for later this year if possible - and definitely next year!!!!). My children said it was one of the best holidays they have ever had.
We tend to be quite active when we go away, and prefer to have an activity focus, and this year it was surfing. Smarties Surf Lodge was just perfect for this. Upon arrival Jackie (the simply beautiful and lovely host) had a cold beer ready for me (welcome after a long train journey...), banana cake in the oven for us - and juice for the kids. She immediately got them sorted with the wifi (realizing how critical this is for teens!!), and showed us to our room.
The room was lovely and the beds were so comfy. Bunks were perfect for the children and I took the single near the window. We slept like logs. The Lodge has a really nice relaxing and friendly vibe; and the sea air and surfing resulted in us sleeping 9 or 10 hours a night!!! It felt really safe here (very important when you are travelling with kids on your own). The bathroom was spotlessly clean every single day, and we hung damp towels on the line(s) outside our room.
The location is also perfect! We walked into town a few times ( a 7 minute walk down the hill) and had a look around. Newquay is really lovely - although the constant smell of pasties cooking around the town meant we were nearly always hungry! Lots of families around, and a very chilled and nice atmosphere in the town.
Smarties Surf Lodge is minutes away in the other direction from Fistral Beach. It is also just a few minutes walk from a launderette (handy for us as we stayed for a week). A Spar and cash machine. The beach is fantastic and Jackie also helped us out with a brilliant Coasteering experience!!! (We had already booked surf lessons on line but Jackie could also have helped us with that too). The Beach Bar at Fistral was pretty addictive.....catering for pretty much all culinary requirements!!
We had the cooked breakfast at Smarties on three mornings - which is similarly priced to cafes in town, but the ingredients used were fresher/better in our experience, and also presented with obvious care. It was luxury coming downstairs and having it cooked, while drinking fresh coffee!! (And not having to wash up after!)
All-in-all my family had a simply brilliant stay at Smarties in Newquay. We will be back as soon as we can!!!

I was blown away by this place, I stay in Newquay every year and I wish I found it sooner. I stayed with my best mate, and the accommodation was excellent. Jackie who runs the Satires lodge, made us feel right at home and gave us a very warm welcome. It was so hot when we arrived she greeted us with an Ice cold beer. Jackie you legend. She Is very knowledgeable and has a all the contacts you'll need and tips on the best places to eat/drink!
The rooms are clean and cosy, you would not be disappointed booking this place.
The location is also right in the middle of everything, shops, clubs restaurants and various beaches.
I will be booking here next year without fail.
Thanks for an awesome stay, will see you again next year.

This place was a 5 minute walk away from the hustle. It's also kind of in between Towen and Fistral so it's convenient for a beach lover. It was clean and quiet, just what you need if you're in Newquay to enjoy the Cornish landscape and waves. It had everything I needed as a lone traveller. The owners are very approachable and helpful. Thanks for a great stay!
