Just had a long weekend stay in Old Temperance House and cannot fault it. Clive and Denise are lovely hosts who could not do enough for you. It is spotlessly clean and the breakfasts are really good, with plenty of variety. You must try the Hogs pudding with the Full English breakfast. In a good position in the square with...

A wonderful stay of eleven days. What more can I say? The hosts, the room and the food were excellent, and Clive and Denise could not do enough for us, even sending off for some goods for us that we had admired! This was our first visit, but we shall certainly come again.(My husband even said that their high standard...

Probably the best to stay in St Keverne. Lovely hosts, excellent breakfast. A couple of things you need to be aware of - check in is at 4pm and check out at 10am, although this is probably negotiable. What really negatively impacted our stay was a very noisy fan running sometimes nearly all night. And one evening there was not...

We had a lovely night stay here - the room, although a little on the small side, had everything you needed and more. On arrival we enquired about a place to eat that evening and within 5 minutes Denise had booked a table for us - great service! Breakfast was wonderful - a good selection and we particularly enjoyed the...

We stayed in the Bailey's Suite at Old Temperance House in June 2014. The room was perfect, very spacious and spotlessly clean with a lovely view over the village square. Comfortable bed and well equipped en-suite with a full range of toiletries. Clive and Denise could not have been better hosts, even providing us with a table & chairs and...

Having booked our stay at 'Old Temperance House'a while ago, it was recommended by a local taxi driver (whom we used on the day of our stay). That was a recommendation of its own! Upon arrival, Clive greeted us with a very warm welcome. We stayed in the 'Cointreau' room. So, so clean & comfortable. Well needed after 'coast path'...
