Overall, a nice place to stay in a lovely location. Pricing top range average. Quiet, comfortable bedrooms with lovely seaview rooms. However, Lantern Lodge feels like it's treading water until a change of ownership happens. If you read previous reviews you will notice that it changed from a hotel to a B&B only this year. I understand that they used... More

Great location, spotlessly clean, friendly staff, faultless breakfast (both choice and preparation), excellent lounge and sun-room and ample parking. It's a little dated, but in a charming and comfy way and although it's now officially a B&B (not offering night staff or evening meals) at heart it's still very much a hotel; the well-maintained putting green on the sloping front...

I believe in being as positive as possible when reviewing, so let's start with that. The Lantern Lodge is in a beautiful location overlooking Hope Cove. There is ample parking. The bedroom and bathroom was spotlessly clean and breakfast was excellent, with plenty of choice, beautifully cooked and served by attentive staff. Okay, so when I sent an email asking... More

Lantern Lodge was very clean with a good bathroom but as we prefer a more contemporary hotel it was rather dated. We noticed it has been sold so maybe that is why they haven't changed it. There was a pool which I enjoyed & an excellent breakfast with beautifully laid out tables. Great location with views over Hope Cove &... More

We have had several excellent holidays at Lantern Lodge Hotel but this year it no longer does evening meals but is a Bed and Breakfast. We wondered if we would still enjoy our stay. We did as the staff are unchanged and our room was as comfortable as ever with superb views. Room 1. The indoor swimming pool was just... More

The hotel now just a B&B has been on the property market for a couple of years and now a redevelopment application has been made to demolish the hotel and build a number of houses in its place. It’s perhaps not surprising that the staff are somewhat demoralised not knowing if the will have a job in the future. Due... More

Booked this hotel for business trip but later found out that they couldn't serve breakfast until 8.30. They couldn't/wouldn't even leave us cereal and fruit etc. When I then cancelled as it wasn't suitable I was charged full price. None of this was obvious when booking but when you look in the small print....... Disappointed not to have stayed as... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Lantern Lodge, Hope Cove, Kingsbridge. The Lantern Lodge is a small privately run B&B 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 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 dining room where breakfast is served. The Lantern Lodge 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
