“Long weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

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 which were much larger and even better appointed which we would look for next visit...which there will be when vacancies occur . Book well ahead !! Super visit and weather was excellent.

Room Tip: Book early and arrive hungry !! Great views great service.

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 work to get it to the right temperature and tea making facilities. Excellent staff, approachable and helpful. The chef owner produced a good range of food and considering we had not planned eating dinner at the hotel each night, normally preferring to adventure out and taste whatever we come across, we tried it and ended up eating at the hotel for each of our four nights stay, certainly value for money with five courses for £20. The guests we met had all been before, some many times and all without exception spoke well of Lantern Lodge. The décor is a bit yesterday but do not let this distract you. The position, staff, food and in my opinion value, made it a good four night break. Good quality beds and a good indoor pool.

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 was a good size, spotlessly clean and in excellent condition.
Crip white linen adorned the firmly mattressed beds which provided a good nights sleep. Only minor comment would be to have had softer pillows.
Lounge and bar areas were immaculate with quality furniture and fittings.
The Dining room continued the 'Quality' feel that Lantern Lodge exudes. 'Silver Service' from friendly attentive staff complemented the superb menu choice and excellently presented and deliciously tasty food.
The swimming pool, sun terrace and gardens were of equally high standard.
During our time at Lantern Lodge we were amazed at the number of 'repeat visit' guests, some on their 14th or 15th stays. As 'newbies' we were in the minority of 1 or 2 !!
We guess that says it all about this wonderful hotel. Clearly the owners 'know their market' and cater for it in a totally committed fashion to provide what must be the best value holiday accommodation in the south west.
Roll on June 2015 when we revisit.

Room Tip: Go for a room with a sea view - rooms 1, 2, 3, 10, 11 & 12 appear to be the best.

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 little touches of ornaments etc that made it feel like home. Huge en suite and lovely fluffy towels. Food was brilliant. Piping hot breakfast that kept us going all day. Four course evening meal cooked beautifully and the menu choice was as good as any four or five star hotel. Lovely swimming pool which was a welcome asset on returning from our walks. Also a sauna if required. Very nice sitting area in the front gardens with small putting green. Really looking forward to going back as soon as possible to do further walks in this beautiful part of Devon. Cannot imagine staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: Sea View room worth the extra.

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.

It has all been said before but we have just had a great 6 nights in comfort, peace and quiet with excellent food and exemplary service from all the staff.The views and walks are the best tonic anyone could wish for, and there is the pool for the even more energetic.

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
