This was my third visit and I love coming to stay at the Lionesse and seeing Erica and Mark. If you visit Falmouth you must stay there too! The bedrooms are beautiful (I loved my big cabin bed built onto the wall. I actually wanted a lie-in!) Mummy and Granny said it was spotless and the breakfasts are amazing! Erica... More

Mark and Erica gave us a lovely welcome into their home and great tips about places to visit in Cornwall. The breakfast was excellent and home cooked. We felt at home and had a great and most comfortable stay. Would definitely recommend this place to others visiting Falmouth!

Mark & Erica really welcomed us into their home and made us all feel very relaxed. They were engaging, friendly and interested. The interior design of the whole house was just fantastic and so inventive! It was a real joy to explore - I even took photographs as a source for ideas. The place was just what we wanted and...

Very clean and comfortable accommodation just a short walk from the town centre. During our stay we enjoyed a freshly cooked breakfast each morning: tea, coffee, juice, and toast with homemade preserves - delicious. The hosts Mark and Erica are very welcoming and helpful - Erica provided the most delicious lemon drizzle cake on our arrival and Mark lent us... More

A lovely review - thank you. Tea and home-made cake; yummy, filling breakfasts and super comfy beds all feature highly in the Lyonesse experience. However, these come as standard. In other ways, we try to anticipate the particular needs of all our guests and be as accomodating as possible: being passionate about beautiful Cornwall, we have a wealth of local... More

We do our best to get it right for our guests and we're glad it's paid off in your case. Beds and breakfasts are definitely top of our list of priorities (we are, after all, a B&B!) but the ambience of the Lyonesse we also take seriously. As such there are a wealth of original paintings and other features (such... More
