Our stay at Old Temperance House exceeded our expectations with Denise and Clive being the perfect hosts, providing a beautiful spotlessly clean room and amazing breakfasts each morning. They also went the extra mile helping us with some genealogy queries and booking our tickets to the amazing Minak theatre. We cannot speak more highly of our stay with them and...

Denise and Clive are the perfect B&B hosts. Obliging, helpful and considerate to your every need. Comfortable, immaculately clean ensuite rooms in the Old Temperance House and they even have a self catering cottage in St Keverne too. The breakfast choice and service is A1 - thanks Clive. The Old Temperance House has 500 years of history too. Ask D&C...

Many thanks to Clive and Denise for a very comfortable overnight stay on the 16th June. Everything was immaculate and clean, along with all facilities that you could ask for. The next morning was also spot on with fresh fruit salad and yogurt, plus a fully cooked breakfast along with croissant cooked that morning and good coffee. A continental breakfast...

It was a great pleasure to stay for a "short week" in the self-catering part of the OTH. All the facilities of home but with the added luxury of being in your own accommodation. It would be ideal for 2 or 3 adults as there are two bedroom upstairs. Clive & Denise are excellent hosts - always around when/if needed...

What a delight to find such a lovely B&B, especially after walking all day in the sunshine. Everything about the place is pristine as was our greeting and every aspect of our stay. Superb breakfast, we will most definitely stay again if we are able.

I was visiting Helston for a wedding, the Groom approached this establishment to arrange accomodation for his relatives, all I can say is well done.
