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

Thank you the positive reinforcement; you've confirmed that we're getting it right and therefore we'll continue to do more of the same. 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 !

Erica & Mark make you feel very welcome right from the start. We stayed in the very top floor room which was very comfortable & clean. Its the personal touches of the home made fudge & cake in the room that make it that little more special. Lovely breakfast, including delicious home made jams & marmalades. You can choose to...
