The room I had was on the 2nd floor and overlooked the beautiful gardens & Pool. As a FIFO worker I can only say I had such a relaxing time and the genuine warm and friendly reception of Serge & Sally. Nothing seemed too much trouble, they had time for a chat or just left me to my own quiet...

If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay this is it. Charming house with great facilities including very spacious bedrooms/bathrooms. The hosts were delightful and very helpful . The location is in close proximity to the town centre which is useful if you do not want to drive.

Sally and Serge have created such a gorgeous sanctuary and have clearly thought about everything that a guest could want. There are so many small touches that delight, such as proper french press coffee in the rooms; plastic champagne flutes and candles by the spa and fluffy robes in the cupboard. The breakfast menu has a full array of options,...

Lanterns Retreat is exquisite yet comfortable in a most welcoming way. Our room was beautifully decorated with access to a flower filled garden and small pool. Everything we could possibly need or even think of was provided. Best were hosts Sally and Serge who were great fun, turned out a scrumptious breakfast and provided us with helpful travel insights. Certainly...

We enjoyed a three night stay here and it felt like home the minute we arrived. Sally and Serge are wonderful hosts; attentive, warm, happy to help and recommended some great places to visit during our stay. The rooms are spacious - made so by their large floor plan and high ceilings. The large ensuite just added to the feeling...

We have stayed three times at this beautiful bed and breakfast. The owners Sally and Serge are wonderful and engaging, they also cook the best breakfasts in the south west. Recommend a peaceful and romantic getaway in the quaint town of Dunsborough.

Thank you Serge and Sally for taking such special care to make your guests such a priory. Our stay of 3 nights was lovely, we thoroughly enjoyed the upstairs suite with our private Verandah.

Just the best week in a great room with fabulous hosts (including Emma (daughter) and Abby (sweet dog). We had great fun, laughter and frivolity. Definitely recommend highly.
