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... More

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. We too love the room tucked away at the very top of the house; it is very private, generously sized and comfortable with wonderful panoramic views across Falmouth towards the sea. The old adage - 'Treat others as you want to be treated' is one that we follow here at... More

Mark and Erica were very welcoming and friendly. We had most interaction with Mark, and he was both helpful and accommodating. The room we stayed in was spotlessly clean, comfortable and had all the things you need for a pleasant stay. Breakfast is excellent and we took full advantage of the ability to have it at the little table and... More

Thank you for your complimentary review. It was great that you took advantage of the opportunity to breakfast in your room and that this helped make your stay even more comfortable and relaxing; it's a rare treat to be served breakfast in bed and it's a choice that lots of our guests take full advantage of!

We spent three relaxed nights at Lyonesse and enjoyed the comfortalbe en-suite apartment on the top floor. Friendly and welcoming hosts, a wide choice for breakfast (recommending the porridge!), a lot of useful information for our stay. Thanks a lot!

Thanks again for a glowing review. We are always pleased when guests choose to return to stay with us. It confirms that we must be getting something right!

We actually live in Falmouth but had to find somewhere else to stay at short notice after a major drainage problem erupted at our home. After spending a gruesome night in a rival establishment - like Fawlty Towers but without the laughs - we were lucky to find a room at the Lyonesse. It it could not have been better.... More

In many years of travelling, this is the best guest house we've stayed in. And it really is a guest house and not a B&B because Mark and Erica made us feel like special guests and shared their knowledge of Falmouth with us. Mark's breakfasts were great, there were three of us and we all wanted different stuff and we... More

We stayed for three Nights with Mark and bis lovely family. We had an absolutely great stay due to the great house, room, hosts and their breakfast :) We have been to other places before and because we are not used to heavy breakfasts we loved to discover that we could get fresh fruits and Greek stale yoghurt every day...

This was a lovely B&B to stay in. Mark and Erica were very welcoming and even picked me up from the train station. The decor of the B&B is very tasteful and the room and bathroom were immaculate. Breakfast was offered and they were very obliging with providing what was requested. A 20 minute walk into town and easy access... More
