Our stay at the hotel was a return visit - we have been a few times. Hope Cove is a great destination. The hotel has a quirky charm, knitted doylies at the mock thatched bar says it all ! The food is good and the service has been excellent, exept from one member of staff. On our first visit this lady showed us our room - the reaction to my commenting on the hard bed was "I can't do anything about that, they are all the same"! They are not. On this last visit this person appeared to argue in the dinning room over a requirement- not proffessional. When paying the bill my partner had to deal with her again and she gave no farewell or wishing well, safe journey, how was your stay?- just explained the bill - which is her roll as bookkeeper. If she continues to have to deal with the public -get some training in hospitality! We will give it a miss for a while.Apple and barrel come to mind! A shame - give it a go if you are thick skinned!
- 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
