“Wonderful place to stay - 10 out of 10”
Reviewed 25 September 2011

Denise is a wonderful host, so friendly and welcoming. Clive's breakfast is the best (he is so helpful when planning our days out)! Thank you so much for welcoming us on both occasions we have stayed with you. We will recomend you to all our friends & family.

Room Tip: The Baileys room is our favorite

The service is excellent, Denise and Clive are attentive, friendly and great hosts. Cooked breakfast is made using quality local produce and there is plenty of choice, including cereals and usually a delicious, healthy mix of fresh fruit and or yoghurt.

The rooms are spotless and comfortable with Tea, Coffee, Biscuits, etc and everything I need to relax (TV, DVD, CD, Radio, etc) and free WiFi if I need to work.

The Old Temperance House is in a great location on the square in St Keverne close to the shop, PO, pubs, and my office.

I stay at the OTH on a regular basis, living in Somerset and travelling to the office in St Keverne most weeks and generally I won't stay anywhere else unless all the rooms are booked and I have no choice!

Room Tip: Most of the rooms have a view of the square, all offer a good level of comfort.

We stayed at OTH for the 1st two nights of our honeymoon following a recommendation from friends. We arrived quite late at night after a wonderful but very tiring wedding day and were greeted with a beautiful room (which like the rest of the house was immaculately tidy!) complete with a plate of much needed smoked salmon sandwiches and a letter of congratulations from the owners Clive and Denise. The breakfast was fantastic and if you are staying on a Sunday we can highly recommend the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs!! The food is locally sourced, beautifully cooked and well presented. Both Clive and Denise were most welcoming, extremely friendly and really helped to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. We really feel that OTH provides superb value for money.

Stayed just for one night (family funeral)...Rooms better than a number of 4star hotels I have stayed in. Bright, modern, clean rooms, A/C, internet connection and this is a B&B !! The owners could not have been more welcoming or helpful. Breakfast just kept coming, Hardly needed to eat for the rest of the day. Quiet, right on the village square, parking on the square. Two Inns on the square serve very reasonable dinners. Small Post Office and a General Store too. Top quality B&B at a reasonable price.

We stayed at Old Temperance House with our two girls for 2 nights whilst in Cornwall for a family wedding (Aug 2011). I can't rate the place highly enough. The rooms are beautiful, spotlessly clean and with every extra you could need. Being an allergy sufferer, I very much appreciated that the beds were allergy treated and slept like a log! The breakfast was second to none, with locally sourced ingredients that were cooked to perfection. Clive and Denise are friendly, helpful and good humoured hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Being the nosey individual that I am, I had a good snoop round the accomodation booked by the other wedding guests and although some of it was very nice, none came anywhere near Old Temerperance House. We will definately be returning here and highly recommend it to anyone looking for bed and breakfast whilst staying in this area.

Having being staying at this 'up market' B&B almost every year since it opened we have never been dissappointed. Clive and Denise are the perfect hosts. You really feel as though you are guests in their home. Our only concern is that everyone seems to know as the secret of excellent food, service, cleanliness and the friendly ambiance seems to be out!

The service was quite exceptional actually. Wonderful welcome. Great room overlooking the square - we thought it would be noisy but no problem. Windows double glazed. Breakfast exceptional; the usual challenge in deciding what to have the night before. Able to park immediately outside. The cleanliness and tidyness are exceptional. Facilities in the room were exceptional as well. Small chiller by the bed, DVD player and DVD, TV with freeview. Light coloured decoration and light carpets made the rooms feel nice and airy. The windows in our room had shutters - I suggested adding an "air flow" device of some sort; curtains would provide this; shutters work very well keeping the light out but don't let the air in. Immaculate en-suite bathroom with nice white towels. Short walk to a choice of pubs for evening meals.

Room Tip: We had the double room with en suite at the front
