Difficult to criticise this hotel as it does a lot right - it's clean, welcoming and it's location is stunning. It's just a bit tired and could do with some investment to bring it into the 21st century. We note that the hotel is up for sale and it feels that it could be treading water until new owners take...

We have just spent four nights at the Lantern Hotel in Hope Cove Devon. It is a well situated hotel overlooking the village, harbour and open sea views. The hotel its self is spotlessly clean, it is a little dated and could do with a complete overhaul, but in a way it almost added to its charm. The food is... More

First time at this hotel, loved the location and views. The staff are very helpful and the breakfast is very good (large) with good choices and service. There is a small indoor pool which is in great condition. The rooms are nice and clean and we very much enjoyed our stay. There is a bar although I didn't get to... More

It certainly lives up to its certificate of excellence The location was excellent being a short walk from the beaches and having the South Coast path running past the entrance. The swimming pool was superb and it is lovely to... More

A bit like sitting in a lukewarm bath - someone else's. The hotel smells of fried bread throughout. Not entirely unpleasant. It's cosy. My room was over the kitchens. Stuffy and past its sell-by with faded prints on the walls. The decor throughout is dated and a touch tatty, the carpets well trod. The staff were pleasant if a little... More

Great location, friendly staff and good food are the pros. The cons are:- dated decoration in the rooms, our shower didn't work very well at all and although the hotel is advertised as having wifi, the signal is so weak throughout the property that it just isn't usable.

This small hotel is situated in the small and peaceful village of Hope Cove in South Devon. For those looking for a de stress and peace it's an ideal location. Forget about your mobiles and laptops because there is little if any reception here. Unfortunately this also seemed to extend to the hotel Wi Fi. The hotel is located high... More

Well! What can I say. What an absolutly fabulous place. This was our first visit. The location of this hotel is nothing short of perfect for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of working life. The first thing you notice when you get out of your car in the car park is the sound of silence.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Lantern Lodge Hotel, Hope Cove, Kingsbridge. The Lantern Lodge Hotel is a small privately run hotel situated on the cliff top right next to the South Devon Coastal path and overlooking the secluded fishing village of Hope Cove with its Devon thatch cottages, clean, sandy and safe beaches. Nearby are the old traditional towns of Kingsbridge, Salcombe and Dartmouth all offering their own individual character and all offering that little extra to make your stay in the South Hams that extra special and unique. Also close by are Thurlestone, Bigbury and Dartmouth golf courses all with stunning views of the area and fantastic and challenging courses. The Lantern Lodge Hotel has its own special extras to offer including an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, double, twin and four poster rooms all with en-suite facilities and some with sea views. 9 hole putting green and plenty of car parking. There is a restaurant where breakfast and dinner are served. Next to the restaurant is a well stocked bar and a extensive wine list offering wines from all around the world. The hotel is so named after its attractive leafily-clad 'Lantern window.' Local folklore would have us believe that this type of window was specially designed to hold and display an illuminated lantern which could be seen from all three aspects far out to sea, acting as a beacon to safely guide home all their boats. Nowadays, our Lantern window serves very much the same purpose in welcoming back our contented guests year after year. ... more   less
