We booked very much last minute and were welcomed by Sharon who was really pleasant. Our room overlooked the harbour, and I was pleasantly surprised by the huge bay window. Everything was clean and the bed was absolutely huge with 2 divans pushed together.. I found the bed to be very comfortable.
The hotel was nice and quiet with very little noise heard from other guests. If the sliding. Door to the en suit is left open you can hear the next rooms guests use their bathroom. But this is easily solved by keeping the door closed.
The bathroom could do with being renewed but as Sharon has on,y just taken over the hotel, this is something she will probably deal with as she finds her feet. However everything was immaculately clean so an old bathroom really isn't that bigger deal.
There was an abundance of tea and coffee in our room which is a big plus in my eyes.
No shampoo or shower gel in the bathroom but there was a liquid hand wash.
Plenty of spare loo rolls were also available in the bathroom.
Breakfast was lovely and my egg was cooked perfectly. Nothing was too much trouble. I would've liked to have had a spare knife laid on my side plate for when I buttered my toast as I had to wipe my knife off from eating breakfast in order to butter my toast.
Outside the back of the hotel is a lovely little sun terrace with ample seating.
The hotel is situated near the pavilion and right opposite the beach. You either have a sea view or a harbour view. Both are wonderful. The town centre is approx 5 minutes away and you get a parking permit which you place in the windscreen and this allows you to have free parking for the duration of your stay.
Try visiting e Marlborough fish and chip shop by the town bridge for the best cod and chips, also they do a gorgeous beef curry to dunk your chips in. Not the curry sauce, make sure you ask for the beef curry. Floods is a wonderful seafood restaurant Along the harbour but booking is advisable.
All in all we had a delightful holiday and will definitely come back to the Lantana again. Thank you Sharon and family and good luck for your new venture within the hotel business.
