Despite the wet weather our hosts Kevin and Claire were bright and sunny and did their best to make our stay very pleasant. The room is very well equipped and comfortable while the breakfast is hearty enough to set you up for the day.

The house is stunning and very comfortably furnished. Every comfort provided. The owners, Denise and Clive, were so friendly, kind and helpful, it felt like we,had known them for years! St Keverne is a pleasant village with good pubs, a friendly shop and good walks. I would definately stay again.

We had two rooms at Old Temperance House as my son and his girlfriend came to visit with us. Denise and Clive were really friendly, Clive's breakfasts were delicious including the freshly baked croissant, jam and clotted cream. The rooms were lovely. We couldn't fault our stay at all. Will definitely visit again! Thank you Tracey, Kev, Jonny and Becka

From the start we were made very welcome by Denise and Clive. Beautifully furnished room with everything we required. Room overlooked the Market Square. Thought it might be noisy but the glazing and shutters ensured a quiet night . Breakfast was very special and cooked to perfection by Clive. A great stay.

My family and I had such a wonderful stay at the Old Temperance House. We were warmly welcomed by Denise and had a delicious breakfast from Clive (try the Cornish breakfast). We stayed in the Champagne room and it felt like such a treat! Couldn't recommend this place more! Thank you!

Just spent 4 wonderful days at this first class bed and breakfast. The room and facilities were spotlessly clean. Denise keeps everything in pristine condition, and extremely comfortable, whilst Clive does breakfasts to an extremely high standard. I would thoroughly recommend this b+ b to anyone.

There is a problem with Tripadvisor. You can only give a maximum score of 5. If ever somewhere deserved more Old Temperance House deserves it. Immaculate throughout, owned by 2 lovely people who obviously go beyond the norm of what most expect. Although in an idylic part of the world you can be as active or as lazy as you...

What can I say, this was a real find. Nestled in a lovely little village with a nice pub across the way and my now fav restaurant the Greenhouse a stones throw away. Clive and his good lady wife were excellent hosts with an excellent breakfast menu, help with planning walks around the Lizard and the rooms were beyond clean...
