It's difficult to write anything original about this lovely little B&B. It's all been written before in their previous glowing reviews. Affable hosts Excellent location Spotlessly clean Read the reviews. Believe the reviews. Book a room. Do it today.

We stayed at Lyonesse B&B in November 2015. The guest house is conveniently located - a 10 minute walk to the town centre and market street as well as the beaches of Falmouth. There is free parking next to the apartment. The rooms are very nicely and tastefully decorated - with matching curtain, linen etc. Though we found the rooms... More

We arrived for our weekend break together with winter, so were delighted to find a warm, room and a very comfortable bed with a cosy but lightweight duvet, ensuring snug nights! We also appreciated such extras as fresh milk for in-room tea and coffee making and delicious welcome cake. Breakfast was excellent and Mark and Erica are both warm and... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and would definately recommend it. The owners were really friendly and helpfull, the room was great with a lovely view over Falmouth. There was a lovely selection for breakfast (which can be served in your room if you wish) I didn't try the cooked breakfast but if the cake and home made granola are... More

My parents and I recently stayed at the Lyonesse Guest House for a family getaway and decided to try a guest house as opposed to a hotel and we couldn't be happier with our decision. Lyonesse Guest House is truly a home away from home. The room was modern,spacious and clean. The beds were comfortable and the double size shower... More

Absolutely perfect in every way. Could not have asked for a better location and the room was just so comfortable and beautifully decorated. Mark and Erica are wonderfully warm and friendly hosts and always eager to go the extra mile. Will definitely stay there next time we are in the area.

One of the best accommodations I've ever stayed in. We (2 adults, 2 children) were here for 2 nights in August 2015, after having visited St. Ives. Mark picked us up from the train station even though it's just a stone's throw away and took us to the beautiful house. The room we stayed in was very neat and nicely... More

We're delighted to learn that you felt so relaxed and comfortable during your stay with us. You noted our beautiful sink into feather pillows which we have carefully chosen to maximise guests' comfort. However, we also appreciate that some guests are sensitive and may be allergic to feather. In which case, our non-feather alternatives are equally lush! It's pleasing to... More
