We have stayed several times in the last few years and will be staying again in 2017. We don't normally do Bed and Breakfasts, but having tried the "best" hotels in the area we have settled for at least visits a year here. Sally & Serge are without doubt true hard working professionals and deserve the success that they have...

We arrive late in the afternoon about 6 pm and we were greeted warmly by the host.We feel like we are at home. The room is clean and nice, looks like you are in a 5 star hotel. Breakfast is good. The host is very warm and welcoming. We will definitely comeback.

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.

We stayed here for a weekend getaway and loved every minute of it. The property is a beautiful old building which is very well maintained and the accommodation is spacious, clean, comfortable and authentic. 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...

Lanterns Retreat was a delight from the time we pulled into the drive until we left. 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...

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...
