“2013 holiday”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

I stayed at the old temperance house, for a few days in 2013,i had a great week there and i would recommend to anyone. the service was fantastic,its seconds walk from two great pubs.And i am planning a return visit later this year,i am a diver and i was even allowed to dry my kit in the garage,so it was dry for me to wear the next day.The room was very bright and plenty off room,Looking forward to my next visit later this month

Thank you Stephen for you review, we do have a lot of divers stay, they too find the facilities here great plus having two pubs serving meals, the Green House restaurant all seconds from our front door, it helps to make your time here more relaxing, we look forward to welcoming you back to Old Temperance House later this year.

immaculately clean, well run with fabulous service and breakfasts. Set in the center of the village close to the beaches, and with two pubs and several restaurants close to hand.
Stayed for a wonderful three nights and will be back sometime soon!

Room Tip: they are all excellent.

Just got back from a stay in Gin and Tonic cottage, recieved a warm welcome from Denise when we arrived and later on when we met clive. The cottage was lovely, everything we needed and more,very clean, well equipped and a very comfortable bed. St.Keverne itself is a lovely area and just a short drive away from most of the tourist spots. Had a great stay but left wishing we had booked for longer. Will definately be back and reccomend to friends, family and any-one who will listen.

Having had a long trip it was lovely to be welcomed so warmly by Denise. We stayed in the champagne room which was very clean and had a spacious bathroom. The extra treats on the tea and coffee stand were a very nice touch. Nothing was too much trouble for either Denise or Clive. The drying area for wet suits made our stay even more comfortable. I would highly recommend this B&B, and we would certainly return. Thanks again for a wonderful weekend. Laura Sach

We had a wonderful restful 6 night stay at the Old Temperance House. Clive & Denise were extremely helpful and made our stay relaxing. Clive's breakfast were amazing and set us up for the day. The accommodation was immaculately clean and our room was serviced every day. The village was central for exploring the Lizard Peninsula. A most enjoyable holiday, highly recommended .

From the moment we arrived and were welcomed by Clive, we knew we had chosen the right place to stay. We stayed in the Baileys room which is large and comfortable, with a small table and chairs thoughtfully placed in the window overlooking the village square. Each day Denise left a different chocolate treat to enjoy with our tea or coffee. The bedroom and bathroom were scupulously clean, as was the whole house. Ample good quality toiletries were also provided. The breakfast choice was absolutely superb, including bowls of fresh berries and grapes, and full English cooked breakfast if desired. I opted for the (very fattening) Cornish Continental of freshly baked croissants, jam and clotted cream! Clive and Denise are the most welcoming hosts for whom nothing is too much trouble. We would thoroughly recommend a stay at the Old Temperance House, and I would suggest it is even worth making a special detour to stay here.

We arrived to a welcoming cottage with lovely people. The local area is beautiful. The cottage is clean and bright, Cornwall is lovely. St Keverne is a lovely little village with lovely people living there. WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND.
