It was everything you need from a BnB; clean, comfortable, great location and a fantastic breakfast! Serge was very welcoming and had lots of great tips for beaches and wineries. The only downside was that i couldn't stay longer! Thoroughly recommended.

We spent two nights in Lanterns Retreat and we loved it! Serge is a perfect host! The room was beautiful decorated and the bed very comfortable. Serge served us delicious breakfast every morning and you just feel at home in this cosy place. The location is perfect! Close to the beach and close to the center of Dunsborough!

From the moment we arrived Serge made us feel welcomed with his warm personality. The house itself is beautiful, well provisioned, clean and ideally located to both the main shops and the stunning ocean. Would highly recommend this BnB, especially with the home made croissants!

We spent 2 very enjoyable nights at Laterns. Sergio made us feel most welcome and was the perfect host. Quality and clean accommodation topped off with a first class healthy breakfast. Very conveniently located to walk to restaurants and Dunsborough town centre and short car trip to magnificent beaches.

Once again my stay at "Lanterns Retreat" was magical. The perfect location, with the perfect host. It's so much more than a "B and B". I wish that there was a "Lanterns Retreat" in every location I travel to.... Oh, and you must try the croissants at breakfast. The best croissants this side of Paris. I can't even get croissants...

Just had the pleasure of spending 2 nights here. I can't sing the praises of Lanterns Retreat loudly enough! Beautifully presented luxury rooms, gourmet breakfasts, and a host who makes you feel like you are genuinely welcome. Serge is warm and witty with a vast knowledge of the south west that he is happy to share. And he cooks the...

A quick trip down south for a wedding, so we looked for something B&B rather than hotels, resorts etc...and through good fortune we found Lanterns Retreat. The attention to detail was obvious, the rooms spacious and well appointed, lovely garden, nice relaxing spa bath...and the breakfast...very, very nice! Put the bite on Serge for one of his buttery crossoints...we couldn't...

Serge made us feel welcome from the moment we walked in. The place itself, is very open, and bright with a great skylight feature in the dining/sitting room area. The room we stayed in (spa room) was large, with the most comfortable bed I've slept in at a B+B. It was decorated tastefully with plenty of space for storage. Bathroom...

We were warmly welcomed by Serge into his lovely B&B who obviously loves meeting people and enjoys being a host. Great location near both beach and town centre. Breakfast was delicious, from the outstanding berry Mueseli, fresh fruit salad and yoghurt, pancakes, mushroom omelette and full breakfast. All beautifully prepared and presented. Highly recommended.
