We spent a few nights recently at this hotel which is in an idyllic location. Very friendly welcome, all staff helpful and friendly, superb food, cleanliness first rate, plentiful supply of hot water - all in all a really lovely place to stay. Our only 'down' comment is that the beds and pillows we had were too firm for us.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Lantern Lodge Hotel, Hope Cove, Kingsbridge. The Lantern Lodge Hotel is a small privately run hotel 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 Hotel 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 restaurant where breakfast and dinner are served. Next to the restaurant is a well stocked bar and a extensive wine list offering wines from all around the world. The hotel 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
