Just spent 4 nights in this delightful B&B. Stylish decor, spotlessly clean and a location which is perfect for exploring the wonderful Cornish coastline. The breakfast was excellent with a choice of full English cooked or freshly prepared fruit with clotted cream and croissant. Very pleasant host who made us feel most welcome. Much recommended.

Have just spent 2 nights at this wonderfull venue for a wedding. The place is immaculate without being uncomfortable, the breakfasts sublime ( if you stay Sunday do opt for the Salmon & eggs) The room, whilst a little on the small side but I was on my own as the dear lady wife had to stay home due to a family a emergency , was immaculate with 2 very comfortable single beds & a private bathroom just over the landing. Robes are provided should you wish. The village is delightful with the OTH sat in the vilage aquare together with the church & the pubs. Probably the best wedding I have ever attended & the accommodation certainly contributed to that. To my hosts, many thanks.

The Old Temperance House is in a fantastic location right in the centre of St Keverne in the Square next to the Church. Its a very quiet location, with comfortable spacious ensuite rooms . Our room was overlooking square. The breakfast was served in the room and was to our exact requirements and delicious. The owners Kevin and Claire went out of their way to make us feel very welcome and all our diatery needs were met with breakfast, it is a fantastic location to explore the Lizard area of Cornwall. There is even a little shop open daily nearby and plenty of eating places and pubs within walking distance, I would definately recommend this B&B, clean, friendly, comfortable and great hosts.

Had a wonderful stay at this B and B. Kev and Claire very friendly and welcoming. Situated in a little Cornish village but a great location for exploring The Lizard to Lands End and on into St Ives. Very accommodating with breakfast requests and rooms were so clean and fresh and comfortable. Would definitely recommend. Thanks for looking after us and for the great tips on places to eat, park and visit!

We booked the room called 'Baileys' which is large & overlooks the square. The decor is very tastefully done. It also had a large bathroom with a bath( I like my bubble baths) As we are still in the Covid era, breakfast was served in our room & I looked forward to Kevin's knock on the door each morning to see our delicious breakfast. We had the full English , my husband also tried the Cornish continental & I was lucky enough to have smoked salmon & scrambled eggs on the Sunday. All perfectly cooked & presented. The room has all the finishing touches & Kevin has plenty of chat & banter. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & highly recommend it.

We had a lovely stay in this stunning B&B for my girlfriend's birthday weekend, we had the Champagne room, which is a cozy room, perfect for two people, with a large bathroom and a nice view of the town square. The whole building is clean, tidy and well decorated with a friendly atmosphere from the owners, who also provide a great selection of breakfast choices. The B&B itself is located in a small town square which also includes 2 pubs with great food and drinks, a convenience shop, post office and 2 cafes within a few minutes walk, wonderful place in a perfect location

I reviewed OTH last year but feel the need to comment again. This must be the most spotless and clean B&B in the Country! Kevin and Claire are delightful and it’s a real pleasure to stay with them. Without doubt- see you again.
