Just spent 2 nights at Lantern Lodge. The staff were very friendly, the place was clean, the food was good. We just felt, at age 41 and 45 respectively, like we should have waited another 10 years....not exactly aimed at our age group, and indeed we were the youngest there. The swimming pool was never too busy and a good... More

This was our third visit to Lantern Lodge and hopefully it won't be our last. We love it there. The whole experience is just so English! Very relaxing, fantastic food, lovely pool and patio area. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. The hotel has a timelessness about it which I hope they do not... More

Beautifully located on cliffs beside the sea, this well appointed hotel is supported by helpful and happy staff. The food was excellent and plentiful . Ours was a last minute booking and had a small but comfortable twin bedded room with a sea view. Equipped with super indoor pool and sauna this hotel exceeds expectations . Looked at other rooms...

Well positioned overlooking they bay with great sunsets. Some bedrooms offer a sea view but room 4 did not. As a late booking we were not disappointed with the hotel albeit we would have preferred the former. The twin bedded room was a good size with two chairs, space to move, TV, a good shower which didn't need to much... More

M&V M From the time we arrived - no reception desk as such but ring the bell and a member of staff was there immediately - to the (sad) day we left, our 5 night stay was absolutely brilliant. Our room (11) had a spectacular sea views, was immaculately presented and proved to be both comfortable and spacious. The bathroom... More

Booked a last minute 3 night break to do some walks on the South West Coast Path. Found this hotel via Tripadvisor and what a great find. Hotel is traditional with a five star service from really lovely staff. The room was amazing with incredible sea views to die for. Spotlessly clean and with loads of storage space and lovely... More

Our umpteenth visit - staff are always welcoming and friendly and provide excellent service. Good food, unrivalled position and general level of comfort make this a hotel one returns to time and again.

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
