A lovely establishment, very warm and welcoming. A great location for our visit, easy to access the town and local beaches. Some beautiful walks just on the doorstep. A highlight was the welcoming atmosphere with our host more than happy to accommodate any need.

It is in an ideal location with the beach at the end of the road and the town a 10/15 minute walk away. The hosts, Serge... More

Only a short distance from the center of Dunsborough and so close to the beach that you can walk the scenic route into town. Serge and Sally were delightful and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was spacious and the bed was very... More

We recently stayed in Lanterns Retreat, it felt like a home away from home. Serge and Sally greeted us with a warm friendly welcoming, showed us around their B&B and chatted with us about the area, sites to see and places to dine etc. When we returned from our first night out they had complimentary chocolate and port for us...

I was welcomed by Serge at the front door with a big smile and warm greetings on arrival. I was looking for an escape from life, some down time and some comfort and relaxation. Lanterns ticked all the boxes. Stunning rooms, including everything you could think of. Beautiful spa bath, super comfy bed and a delicious breakfast in the morning.... More

We spent 2 nights here. Such a friendly place. Greeted by the very enthusiastic Serge who showed us around and to our room. We found it so inviting, friendly, clean and warm. I'd recommend staying here to anyone. Good choice for breakfast also.
