Hi- I came to Cornwall to get a dry suit scuba certification, and despite my Tom Tom, could NOT find the dive hostel address....I wound up in St. Keverne., and Clive answered the phone on my desperate plea and I had the CLEANEST room for a week that I have ever had. The Temperance House is ASTOUNDINGLY clean, and yet has personality. Also, what about that restaurant that has a female chef who studied w/ Gordon Ramsey...up the street from your hostel...SOOOOOOOO goood....If I go back to England, there's no reason to go but Cornwall, and no reason to stay anywhere but the Temperance House: SUCH A GREAT STAY....the breakfast is terRIFfic....

Absolutely loved it! Clive and Denise are fab and cannot do enough for you. Our room (Baileys) was beautiful, location is great, quiet and relaxing, the little touches make all the difference and the breakfasts - well let's just say I need to do some serious working out to shift the extra pounds gained!!! We felt truly looked after and refreshed - thank you. P.s Already checking our diaries for next year!

We stayed at this immaculate B & B for two nights as part of a walking holiday on the LIzard. Very pretty bedroom (champagne) overlooking square with large bathroom, and guest lounge to relax in, which is a bonus. Excellent breakfast with local produce and lovely touches, even the toast gives weather predictions! Very good location with couple of places to eat in village, which feels like a real thriving community rather than a holiday makers temporary abode. Would certainly rec. to friends and stay here again. Clive and Denise deserve every success with this and cannot do enough for their guests.

You get what you pay for and here, it's an excellent B&B with attention to detail. There is a lovely choice of breakfast including a "Cornish continental" with croissants and cream as well as your traditional English. Our room was cosy but had all the creature comforts and little details like a stereo, book to read, adaptor plugs for electirc razors and toothbrushes. The place was immaculate and the beds look so inviting when properly made up every morning. The owners were very friendly and helpful. There is also a spacious lounge which guests can use. This place has a real feel of being a home. The only downside was the pub next door has a late-night party on the Saturday, which kept me awake as the room looked right out onto the main square. The other issue can be
