Thank you Mark and Erica for a second lovely stay at the Lyonesse. Thank you for accommodating a much needed take away on the night of our arrival after a very long journey in to Cornwall, along with scrummy cake on both our days with you. Your warm and friendly welcome would make us stay with you again and again.

Myself and my partner had a fantastic weekend in Falmouth, such a lovely guest house. We were both extremely welcomed, breakfast in bed is an excellent touch and the guest house itself had a lovely feel to it due to Mark and Ericas' great taste and attention to detail. The bed was also very comfortable- big thumbs up! We will... More

All we can do is echo the previous excellent reviews and say a big thank you to Erica and Mark for extending us such a warm welcome. We loved everything about Falmouth and the Lyonesse and would recommend both in an instant. Just fabulous.

I enjoyed my stay and felt welcome from the first minute on. My room was clean, nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was very good and Marc and Erica did everything they could to make my stay as pleasant as possible. I would definetly stay there again and I would recommend the guesthouse to everyone.

We spend 2 days at the Lyonesse and we loved it! Erica and Mark are a gracious host and hostess. When we arrived, they had hot apple cake for us which was delicious.

This is exactly what a B&B should be like. And I should know - I grew up in one! It's a delightful, warm welcoming family home dotted with Erica's gift for detail and textiles, and Mark's efficient friendliness and tips (and perfect porridge). The ideal balance of personal and private space - you can even have breakfast served to your... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Mark and Erica were incredibly friendly and welcoming. To be greeted on arrival with a pot of tea and some home-made cake was a great touch. Mark phoned around for us to find out if there was an 'open-mic' pub in the town.There was although we actually went to another... More

It's interesting that you've noted we're new to the role of B&B hosts - clearly our energy and enthusiasm for what we do hasn't waned over the last 8 years we've been hosting at The Lyonesse - we...

Recently stayed here for our daughter's graduation and couldn't fault it. A mix up with the booking was easily sorted by the owners who went out of their way to accommodate us.... even down to sorting breakfast in the room for my mother who was finding the stairs a bit difficult. The rooms themselves were gorgeous, a little bit quirky... More

Thank you for your lovely review. What a relief to read that you weren't put off after any initial hick up! 'To err is human' and occasionally things go awry, but, as it appears you found, there's little that can't be fixed with some quick thinking, generosity of spirit and flexibility on our part. As regards breakfast we were more... More

Have just enjoyed three nights with Mark and Erica at their bed and breakfast in Falmouth. It was a most pleasant and relaxing stay. Our room was spotlessly clean and very tastefully furnished. We fully anticipate making some return visits. Thank you Mark and Erica - we enjoyed meeting you both and your hospitality was superb !
