Well! What can I say. What an absolutly fabulous place. This was our first visit. The location of this hotel is nothing short of perfect for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of working life. The first thing you notice when you get out of your car in the car park is the sound of silence. Bliss.
We stayed in room 16 which had a little corner window which looks out over Hope Cove harbour and beyond to Bolt Tail. We sat in the two chairs provided in the corner and drank a bottle of wine every night as the sun went down. Perfect.
The room was of adequate size and the bath/shower even had a power shower which I love. The rooms complementary tea and biscuits were replenished every day and the room was made up during breakfast.
Breakfast was enormous and lasted us all day. A choice of cereals, juice or grapefruit segments followed by a fry up of egg, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, beans, fried bread and tomatoes and as much toast as you want.
We only ate in for dinner on two occasions and wished we has done it more often. The food is out of the this world and for the price you pay is fanatastic value for money. We are definately thinking of returning for another break.
The only down side to the room was the bathroom was really hot as it's above the range in the kitchen and a lot of heat comes through the floor. You'll notice it under your feet when your sat on the loo. Just thought I'd mention it but in no way did it put a downer on the week we spent there hence why I gave it an excellent rating.
All those staying there in the near future who haven't been before are in for a treat if you like the quite life.

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.

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
